As much as i don't like to go on about it..........

And as much as i appreciate the fact that you gave the tech team a nudge Natasha....

Some of us still have no emoticons.

If you can't sort it............what chance have we got?

Booo hooo!!!!

Prickly, I think they,re not bothered or have,nt got a clue as to whats causing it and using any excuse so they can,t take the blame for what has happened. Far to much tinkering and not enough knowledge.**M**.

Thank you Natasha! Wishing you the best of luck in your new role.

Hi Everyone,

Looking forward to continuing as Community Manager, answering your questions, queries and suggestions, so please continue to post.

To offer some background I have been with Genes Reunited for a little over a year, which I enjoy as it allows me to feed my interest in family history!

If there is anything you would like to discuss, please feel free to PM me.

I look forward to working with you all,

Shelley

I get the impression that it is those who use Windows XP and IE8.

I can't count the number of times that I have posted about using the "codes" for emoticons!

Of course, everyone would like to have them as they wee

Of course, GR should be able to sort it out


BUT, we didn't have emoticons until a couple of years ago, and we managed.


One more time ......................

You do NOT have to do without emoticons while GR sorts the problem out.

Just do the following!

Close up the spaces ..............

I knew there was one I'd left out, but couldn't work out which it was!!



Prickly ................. I know it's missing the point of getting your emoticon icons back


I'm just saying that there is a way to post them IF YOU REALLY WANT TO USE ONE for a specific purpose.
