That's because the forum has different emoticon than the one at the gallery pages.  You can always copy/paste the laughing icon here from the gallery site Wink

 :lol: :lol: ....   Cry


copy and paste does not seem to work.... Is there anyway that the mods could add it? Seems like it would not be too hard, plus that specific icon is applicable to some of the stuff we post about lol...

I don't disapprove of LED's for domestic and other indoor use, I just don't like them for street lighting.

You right click on the laughing emoticon and get the properties of the said picture that contains the url address.  Copy the url address to the clipboard.  Then you paste as an image.  Here is an example I have done it

Seems a bit complicated, but at least it works until someone can devise an easier way.

I still want my cat :meow:  Grin
