Miz S, do you not want us to use the smilies off the others boards/web? I was about to post something before and it said [IMG UBB OFF ... (it doesn't say that now though) Just wondering because I don't want to continue using them if you'd rather we didn't.

lilnerd, I believe it's okay to use smilies from other boards. Just as long as you don't cover your posts with them, we'll all be happy.

As for the IMG thing. I don't think it applies to smilies. We're just prohibited from posting pictures/images.

If I'm wrong, someone plase correct me. Thanks.

[IMG UBB off] Just means that the IMG tag in UBB code is disabled so that pictures can't be posted.

I don't know whether Heather personally has anything against using Smilies from other boards, but please be aware that what you are doing there is robbing someone else's probably costly bandwidth and hence poor netiquette.

If you want to use these other smilies, I'd recommend that you save them to your harddrive and then upload them to your own website and link to it there, so that the other UBB owner is not affected (apart from the copyright infringement of his or her possibly self-designed Smilies).
