Getting a new emoticon at fastblogit




I'm going to put the new-icon (above) in the pallet of emoticons for the wiziwig.  The absolute easiest way would be to substitute it for one that is already there. 

So which icon is so infrequently used that we would not miss it's absence? 

I nominate ""

add/richtext.js is at least one of the places to change ... hopefully the only one.
but there are 2 places on each emotlet to be changed ... where it appears above and where it goes out on the record.


i am going to do this just as soon as i get  replacing  "" with "the new icon" as i am wanting to use that more and more recently.  

I could also in the same project refine (or redefine) some of the other icons so that they would become more mutually referential.  Howver that might require some measure of cooperation between those who emote here. 

"so now you can kiss my ass " ... this is only a test.

what do you mean by sarcasm here?

incidentally i use "" frequently, so that choice for replacement is rejected by the management.

Seth says
sigh, i am guessing that you assumed all along that this item was to be some kind of RWG between our egos, rather than me just trying to get some usage and preference information from you so that in my stride i could perchance make this communication medium  a bit more convenient.   

Oh well ... i guess it is all good ... or so they tell me .... nevertheless it seems like all of that energy we spent on this item could have been put to a better purpose. 

Seth says
incidentally there is not way i am going to give your a "" icon .

But since i am going to add the "" icon in any case, i might be able to add one or two more.  Are there any other reasonably useful emotions or identities that you might want to express?

Seth says
i always thought that "" expressed curiosity ... have i been misinterpreting your expressions?

Well, right now this entire conversation qualifies.  I see nothing that the quotes enhance that just typing in the quotes will not do.  So you can say I am losing interst.  There are many other things where improvements would further rather than bundling quotes into the emoteys.
 

mark i am just trying to understand what you are saying.  Adding the new-icon has nothing to do with  "bundling quotes into emoteys" whatever that might mean.

Seth says
Quite a while ago i started writing quotes around a emoticon where i wanted it clear that i was talking about the emoticon itself rather than having that emotion.  That is the same way we put quotes around a word to imply that we are talking about the word and not using it.  I have no intention of bundling those quotes into an emotocon.  I think i see now where the confusion arose.

the brick wall emphasizes the separation while the half face is simply as neutral an emotion as we have or a no reation reaction.  One could also have a whole face with a horizontal (:-|) to mean although there may be subtle differences.


hmmm ... so could i interpret your use of "" to express an emotion of curiosity ?  <<== nope!
... and "" the lack of curiosity? <== nope!

incidentally i see no good reason to express a lack of an emotion.  if I have no emotional reaction to something, i just leave off the emoticon entirely.  the absence of an expressed emotion should sufficiently imply i am not emoting about it. 
Don't you agree?
Nope! Sometimes I want you to know I don't give a shit!  ""

 hmmm ... now i did not know that

So which one are you using to tell me that you don't give a shit?   And then what does the other one tell me?

Seth says
Notice that icons not from the pallet always go left justified in a comment and cannot be included at the end or in the middle without editing the HTML.

Whatever.
Do it or don't do it. I can always find ones on the internet if I don't like the basic ones.


Well i do not know what you are telling me to do, or not do, because you have yet to express any actual want or tell me what "" means to you that "" does not.

and, by the way, getting useful information from your is fucking tedious .  

My theory is that you prefer not to let your mind vibrate with any thought from me.  It is the only way that i can make any sense out of how you continually respond.

(we are on different sides of the fence on this one)

Ok ... i like that ... and will use it as such myself.

So then what does "" mean to you?

I use when I can't get it up to express much of an emotion but peeked at what was written.

May I suggest combining with & maybe make the lips small & red on the butt & have it mean "kiss my ass"  ... that would probably be one I would use more often. The other seems more like gay solicitation.


maybe something under here?

cute - I kinda like that. I think it missed the ass. Could be dipped in blue like most of the rest of them.

dinking with these gaphically is almost certainly not going to happen ... lots of work ... especially for animated ones.   i want to be able to do this within an hour's focus.

maybe this one .... all from this page



or this one.  I am reluctant to put a animated one .... also might need to charge for it's use ... maybe .10 per usage .... i don't want to see it over used.

kewl! not my cause! I can find other emoteys elsewhere on my own to use. The ones that have already been used should not break! I

The ones that have already been used should not break!
... yeah they shouldn't.   the old html will point to the old images.  in the pallet the new ones will replace them for new use. 


so in the pallet:

will replace

will repalce
new is a little small.
kiss my ass replaces we are on different sides of the fence ?

well ok ... so ...

replaces

i can look for a bigger new whenever i get a .

Elaine kind of flaked out on us for her own reasons just about the time these icons were being finished.  Oh well ... the ball bounces here ... the ball bounces there.

this one might actually be better ... i just got to scale it down and make it transparent ... normally i would pay Jason to make a jpg transparent around $20 ... are you good for that?
I have no spare money.

given the specs I might be able to get T to do it. She knows Photoshop.

specs are clear ... convert this jpg to a gif with the background transparent, make it 30x31 pixels just like the other ones.  then maybe email it to me, i will name it appropriately and put it in the right directory on our server and point the kiss-my-ass slot in the template thereto. 
OK - she's at work today (Sun-Thu) we'll check the pile when she gets home.
I just got my computer back with Windows 10, maybe time to install Photoshop on mine.



sounds like a plan

Eiammy.. says
final?

Seth says

so we have new emoties .... please use "" sparingly .. it is not a very civilized emotion.

Hmmmm.... not yet on the palette.  That one looses detail with the 30x31 pixels to work with.

wiggy woo ... it was there last night, but not this morning ... test"".  perhaps this process has some weird caching going on.

it's like my changes to richtext.js reverted back to before my changes.  maybe one of those pesky is-isnot ducks
Maybe followed a platypus in the confusion

Seth says
Omg ... why is the pallet changed on my mac mini and not apparently everywhere else?



testing the outputs from the pallet on mac-mini "and

Seth says
i am pretty sure now that the computers where the file "add/richtext.js " has been cached will continue to see the old version untill we can figure out how to clear those caches and allow the browsers to refresh from the web server.

Mark have you ever called up the editor in your new Windows 10?  Could you try it there?
THis is it the old one shows here Safari does not do fastblogit correctly. Firefox is the only browser that works in all phases.
I have been using Windows 10 for the last couple of days.

Seth says

ahh ... ...fixed it in Firefox on my laptop ... Click: Firefox, Preferences, Advanced, and click "clear now" under Cached Web Control ... and you won't even need to ""
