    Default Waving smiley

    When I welcome a newcomer to the forum, I like to use the waving man smiley However, he is sometimes not on the [More] list (he is not there at the moment). Does he have time off for good behaviour?

    I don't know where he's been -- he won't tell me. He's only told me that you can summon him by exclaiming

    : hi :

    You must remember, however, not to pronounce the spaces.

    I had the same experience. While I wanted to insert an icon that I saw in the [More] list before, it just wasn’t there.

    P.S. I think it would be great if more choices can be provided in the [More] list.

    If you want to type an example of code or a smiley without it becoming code, instead of using spaces, you can use [noparse]type your code here[/noparse]

    EG

    [noparse]:up:[/noparse] will show as
    :up:

    (I have use the noparse tag twice to get the example to show)

    I'll try to find out where he's gone.
