Could you give an example? Maybe post back here with any kind of example you can think of, doesn't matter on what.

I know there are ways to rate threads and individual posts, and put icons next to your subject line, but I don't think that's what you're asking.

Clarification by an example (if possible) would be great.

p.s. I don't even know what a star smiley is. I never use emoticons, so I really don't even know what that translates to.

Not thinking of official rating rather something like the smiles on the right hand side when you make a new post that would be a little star similar to one of these :) to allow users to express them selves. For example you might be recommending a program so you would be able to say put a star or two infrom of its name ***** Ubuntu. in the actual post for examble. Hopefully it will add a little special to the forum community which is shaping up realy nicely if I may say. Then again hell with stars lets rip tucows and have badgers lol.

Are you meaning to have these stars in the thread title itself?

Are you meaning to have these stars in the thread title itself? No, all he wants is an emoticon that looks like a star. So I could make a post talking about Software A, B, and C, and say:


Software A does not include a foo but it has three bars: I give it 3 stars * * *
Software B lacks documentation regarding operation of its worzle. However it has a good-looking blingblang and so also gets 3 stars * * *
Software C includes wizards to help you operate the flimflam and also includes a complete foobar. It gets five stars * * * * *

Where * = a little "emoticon" image that is clickable and selectable from the emots panel.

Ah, gotcha. Thanks for the clarification yall. Sounds good to me. Wow, I just hit the "more" button under those emoticon doohickeys (as a little extra curricular research). It's a regular smorgasbord of emotional delight!

This thread is really timely too. I just got back from watching the new "Wallace & Grommitt" movie, and it would really come in handy right about now.

<insert 4/4 future T.B.D. star smileys here>!

Dang, talk about your fast response! Talk about having serious assets...

I didn't think this star doohickey would see the light of day. I'll go back to my emoticon free cave now and scribble more posts with my wooden club...

Then the clickables box is broken. I have on the WYSIWYG editor, I click the star, it shows up. But when posting, it posts as ":ks" and thus it doesn't show up.
