You mean this one: laugh ?

Look up at the top right of the forums: Welcome yoyo52[log out] then a smiley face. Click on that to change it.

I've done that a couple of times, John, but nothing happens. I'm doomed!

That little icon smiles when you're here and sleeps when you're not. (It's a user online/offline indicator).

I'm seeing it change. My guess is your guys browser is caching stuff. Can you check that?

Thanks!

ha, that's the problem of being on Windows. I don't know how to take a screenshot and I couldn't upload it to my site if I could take one.

But yes, it has changed.

Good one!

Neil, I cleared my cache - no change.

What browser/OS?
Posted by: Mississauga

Re: Little icon next to username - 11/13/08 11:07 AM

Safari 3.1.2 OS 10.5.5.

It's not a huge deal for me, by the way. I'm simply grateful not to be out in the world wide web without my friends!

Hmmm... same as me. Not sure what this is about.

Pssst...There's the 'Print Screen' key on the keyboard just right to the F12 key. Hit that and it takes a screenshot of the whole screen onto the clipboard you can then paste in Photoshop or Paint (blech) or even Word etc. on an existing document. Or in Photoshop you make a new document and it gives you the dimensions of the screenshot right away. Then you just save it. And if you hit 'Alt + Print Screen' it takes a screenshot of the active window. wink

BTW: What color is mine right now ... yellow or green?

Thanks!

It's green, Neil.

Re: Little icon next to username - 11/13/08 11:17 AM

and now?
Posted by: John Rougeux

Re: Little icon next to username - 11/13/08 11:17 AM

hit it and nothing happens.

Oh well, I'll just wait until I get home.

Re: Little icon next to username - 11/13/08 11:24 AM

Now it's yellow, Neil.

Uhmmm, did you go to Photoshop or other app and paste ([Ctrl+V] in Windows ;)) it from the clipboard, John? The thing with Windows screenshot is, it doesn't make it into a file right away, like Mac does. Instead, it gets copied onto the clipboard and you have to paste it from there.

I think you set yourself to 'Hide from Who's Online' - it won't change. Change your preferences in My Stuff to this -

ah, nope, didn't do that.

Of course there are no apps on this computer like PS or anything similar.

I'm still seeing the "Online" smiley to the right of your username as yellow, even after a full reload of this page.

And I noticed that just after posting a couple minutes ago, that my own smiley was showing me as offline, which was obviously incorrect.

Curious little buggers, they are!

OK, that makes sense. I will remain a sleeper cell, then.

Re: Little icon next to username - 11/13/08 11:34 AM

I have to say, I'm pretty confident this is a local caching issue, but I don't know for sure.

Not sure where to take this one from here...

Thanks!

You may be invisible online, but your posts show the smile icon.

Actually, that mood icon is something I have no concern about. It could stay or go.

There must be Paint *blech* installed at least as that comes with the OS and that saves stuff in bmp, jpg, gif, png, tiff...

Re: Little icon next to username - 11/13/08 11:39 AM

I'm with you, John.

I don't care about that icon, and it could go away AFAIC. If I wanna find out who's online (and I usually don't care either way), I'll just look at the "Who's Online?" list at the top.

Re: Little icon next to username - 11/13/08 11:44 AM

Well well well, whatdoyaknow. There it is. Paint. Never even bothered to look.

Re: Little icon next to username - 11/13/08 11:50 AM

And by now you've probably realized the *blech*'s... wink

Re: Little icon next to username - 11/13/08 02:25 PM

Sven is right. If you are on stealth mode, the icon doesn't change, at least for you--apparently others do see the change. I just shifted so I'm no longer stealthy and see my little emoticon, which I've changed from cry to smile

Re: Little icon next to username - 11/13/08 02:26 PM

Hold it once . . . It didn't change for me. Still cry
Posted by: yoyo52

Re: Little icon next to username - 11/13/08 02:27 PM

Just emptied the cache, and still cry
Posted by: yoyo52

Re: Little icon next to username - 11/13/08 02:27 PM

Hold it . . . now it's smile

I'm so confused that I think I might change it back to cry

But I won't laugh

Re: Little icon next to username - 11/13/08 02:29 PM

No, it's changed:
