Re: Smilies

not about smilies exactly but
I've wondered if we could change/swap some "post icons" for new ones?

I'd like
- a Blue Oval
- a Lincoln logo
- a dollar sign (maybe WITH a Euro sign? $
)
- a clock
- "eww"

- maybe a star (5 point / gold?)
&or
- maybe something to denote a video? (little TV icon? or the [TUBE] part of the youtube icon?)

imho the sunglasses/cool face is the only emoticon-type face we need
(maybe the mad/red-face, tho never seen it used)
& don't think the 1st one "text" (blue page) is very useful either


btw
the lightbulb, thumbs, & faces look kind of blurry or washed-out on every computer (Windows) I use...
...maybe because the .PNG's don't auto-size correctly for me??
If you find us the .gifs that you would like for those (aside from the Youtube icon and the eww one) I'll look into adding them. Once we have a nice package of the icons desired, I'll escalate those along with the fuzzy post icons.

Cheers,
Sheena

^ THANKS Sheena :joyous: ...but
I don't have an icon maker** and when I try to draw something as small as 16x16 pixels in PaintShopPro, it basically just doesn't work = looks so rough the design can't be recognized
also
I'm under the impression the PostIcons are .Png's for compatibility with various devices/platforms


** if you know or hear of a FREE program that can make icons, please let me know

I'll do a little research and see if I can find a free program and I'll be sure to send it your way.

here's a free .gif program, I google-d let me know if it's any good.

http://makeagif.com/

THANKS for adding the Mercury gif, Lee :thumb:
tho I *trust* you didn't have to delete an existing smilie CUZ truthfully only Thomas and I will prolley use that
What would be used a LOT more is a Lincoln Star gif ... but I don't have a good candidate for that
(& prolley a BlueOval)**



as for 'makeagif.com', it looks like it's only for animated gifs...
so might try that later;
**what I personally want is to be able to make tiny (16x16) PNGs for those Post-Icons


edit
trying an experiment with Win7's snipping-tool
to see if I can convert the tiny-version of the Merc gif as it appears in the List on the Right of my screen
into a PNG for a Post-Icon...



now trying to crop it reallll tight with screen-zoom shrunk



hmm
don't think the transparent background survived...

I didn't remove anything, I promise :)

You can always get software 'free' on the internet. >_>
I'm not encouraging anything.

^ Thanks, Lee ... now all I need is more (free) time :angel


&
I got a question
WHO decides what "AutoGuide" posts?
is it automated?

I've seen some eye-catching CURRENT non-FoMoCo stuff from them on facebook
( GM, FCA, Imports, etc. )
that imho
would have been worthwhile threads here (for more non-Ford News)
that I didn't have time to make
YET
that Trabant thread today strikes me as Why Bother?...


note/imho: the "worthwhile threads" would HAVE to be specific Brand Discussion sections, not ALL in [Suggest A News Article]

We have a writing team that often uses that account to make posts. They use it to post news, articles, etc.
