Can anybody help me?

53 posts in this topic

I haven't had emoticons or even pictures for 2 days and don't know why. I've logged off and on, shut down and restarted the computer...I'm at a loss. Any ideas?

I think you all know I'm a little challenged in the computer area. :unsure:

I had this problem on another board I used to post at.

Did you guys try clearing your cookies? Thats what always worked for me. You might have to do a restart after you clear them.

Hrmm...I dunno if this is the problem, but go to My Controls, then Board Settings under Options (on the left hand side). For the option that says "Do you wish to view images in posts, such as smilies and posted images?", make sure it says "Yes". It's worth a shot...

Thank you, too. But alas, I checked and it is set to yes. Funny thing...I can see a few poster's avatars and smilies. Moustic's, PK's, Rock's and Jerseydevil's as far as I remember. Strange?!?! It's a conspiracy, I tell you.

first advice... don't let your cat run across the keyboard :)

simple terms.. when you go to the web and access a site or a picture your browser will

save the files accessed in a thing called cache (or temp. internet files for those on

internet destroyer).. when you go BACK to the site it checks it for changes .. and if

there are none it uses the file in the cache instead skipping the waste of bandwidth

and time....

was that better ?? :)

Ok. If you say so. I wouldn't bet against you. :noclue: There really is no rhyme or reason to this problem that I can see. For example, when PK posts, I can see her avatar bot not the counter line under her rank, ya know? Also, I can see the smilie next to her signature but not the smilies she posts in the post, ya know? Annnnd, when her and Moustic were cheerleading yesterday in that thread, I saw all the smilies they were posting but nobody elses. Does that make any sense to you.

to check auto updates:

Start

Control Panel

System

I told Moustic once....leave me and save yourself! I'm hopeless. Only thing I see is a Windows update. I'll just have to read the smilies for the rest of my days. Or 'til my husband figures out what's wrong. Which may be just as long. :P

p.s. - Does that rate include travel costs or is that additional?

You know what makes it more fun? When you actually see the smilies instead of having to read them! Try to detect sarcasm without the smilies. Those little buggers really do come in handy! ;)
