:rockon: The green is great, and I like that it uses more modern style (FontAwesome). Notice that it has a sticky bar at the top like FB/Twitter?

I think it means they can post them through their phone??? There are no new ones added to the site. I only go here on my laptop. I'm not one of those guys that can do computer shit on their phone.

You got it. One weird thing about using emojis instead of little animated gifs is that emojis are ISO standardized but they look different on different devices. So they look one way on your phone and another way on a laptop. But still, cool to have a bit of modern convenience on a bulletin-board system that was developed 20 years ago.

I admit, I like the *green* part of the green theme, but I wish the background of most of it were white, or darker grey. The off-white/beige is a bit meh. The layout improvements are 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 though.

If you want to use an emoji from your laptop go here: https://emojipedia.org/ and just copy and paste the one you want -- emojis are the same as text.

If you are on a Mac, just press:

Control + Command + SPACE BAR

It opens a dialogue box of emojis.

Yeah, there's a touch-keyboard option in Windows 10 that also has emojis. (Right-Click on the taskbar somewhere and select "Show touch keyboard button", then open it up and click the smiley-face).

I'm using it to type these: 🤳🐱🚀🐱🐉🐱👤🥗 :bored:

Hmm, some of those show up as the same in Chrome, but they're different in Windows itself. :confused:

Okay I figured out the shortcut key: WIN+; (the windows key between CTRL and ALT on the bottom left, plus the semi colon). It opens up the emoji window wherever your cursor is, which is really handy.

Creep has been the main guy since pretty much day 1. But after the first year or so I think we both just kind of let the board do its thing.

I did some light moderating early on, but it really hasn't been needed since.

I also did the original board design and logo, but none of that aged well. I was really tired of looking at it.

In the early days, I also re-uploaded a lot of my old content, but I'm not sure that's even sitting on a server anymore.

who'd have guessed that ANR would turn in to the last bastion of an online Jane's community? And not much of one at that.
