pictures …. right these smilies or emojis or whatever the heck they are called that are turning out huge ….. I'm going to kill them off leaving the bare basics for a few days and will buy some new ones that are relevant to our forum have asked the gentleman that takes care of our IT to switch off all the new added bundle as that was total flipping poop which he has done :) and will go on the hunt for proper ones to fill their places … wonder if one or two of the old ones we had years ago are still around like the one called Crazy Pilot lol …. sorry random though!

Right so things I need to purchase and get back so far the list stands at

An add-on that makes the latest activity page auto refresh
Smilies / emoji thingies that are more relevant to the forum (plus some of the ones we had but as actual proper sized ones
A new chat box should we have a real time chat room like we did a few years ago?
The who's been online today thingy box needs to come back
Some seasonal themes to dress the place up for holiday events etc
PDF opening add-on

Need to dig out the forum logo from my old laptop and get that stuck back on the top somehow .... but that is not a major biggie

Killed off random media last night as its so flipping small in this new system that you can't flipping see it so rather pointless but all our media / albums etc are still there so that's good.

Can anybody else think of anything else?

Have to say … what a load of poop this cleaning out of the emojis is of the ones that have turned flipping huge …. each one has to be selected as an individual then hit delete then hit confirm then wait for page to refresh .... can't delete a category and get rid of them that way as they all just move to a new category …… I may be missing doing this for sometime ... in fact Christmas may come and go and easter be upon us again before I get this done and can't miss eating stollen at Christmas time!
And if auto correct doesn't flipping mind its own business when I type the word for the cake and keep changing it to something that has been nicked I may have to have some chocolate!!

seems there altered to huge pictures and thus went mahoosive so couldn't alter back to what they were sorry :(
Have removed all the ones that were huge and will purchase a pack that will give us workable ones hopefully I can find ones that are the same or very similar with a few new ones to play with

Right there are some new smileys available errrr a few that we've never had before and some that I grew rather fond of and just never got around to adding them. Hopefully will find a suitable batch of smillies to buy in a bundle that will give us more options but what's in will do us in the meantime … will be adding more to the food and plant sections, symbols at the moment have just added back in the hearts will try and have a think of what else needs to be in there and more than likely will add to the weather one as well over the next couple of days....
