There are five left. These should work, but don't:
:down: or :thumb: or :thumbs-up: or :thumbs-down:
:question: or :what:
:yield: or :caution:
:light: or :bulb: or :idea: or :lightbulb:
:see: or :right: or :important:

Is there one for a shocked/startled look? I was after that earlier today.

By the way, has anyone noticed that one or two of the ballon-helps are wrong when hovering over the selectable icons while editing a message? The grin :D is described as "Talking", for instance. It's OK when viewing messages, though.

Says who?

Confused isn't among the ones you can click on, so who knows how many there are.

Five because I figured if the webmaster created the smilies/icons, he would put them all in the option buttons at the bottom when you edit a post. So I matched them up and we are missing 5! In any case there are not "2 Million Combinations! Wow!" :drop:

Looks to me like you figured wrong. :)

By the way, I've "stuck" this thread. Maybe a bit of glue will help hold it in the forum. :D

I've just unstuck it again. It was convenient, but looked out of place at the top of the forum. It looked like important advice on something to do with VB source code - unfortunate overlap in names there :rolleyes:.

So - any more, anyone?

If we think we've found all of them, I'll compile the list (if someone hasn't beaten me to it) and pass it along to the Admins to put it in the FAQ where it belongs.

That's just what I thought about the sticky. I've tried a lot of the standard words and found nothing, but there should be a :thumbsup: since you can edit and use it.

Yeah. Does anyone know any old internet standards for a thumb-up symbol or something, that we can try?
