Animations & Smilies @ Gabitos Here's a few things to help you get started here at A&S. Daily Greetings & Checking In
- Leave a message here to say hello or whatever is on your mind. Just Lurking?
- You can let us know you were here by copying and pasting a smiley. No conversation is necessary. Message Editor Quirk
- Familiarize yourself with this hiccup of the message editor. It will save you time. Message Editor Translation
- Until I am able to create a tutorial with some screenshots, you can refer to this page to translate the text of the message editor buttons into English. Once you get used to the buttons, you won`t even need it. Insert Flash Object
- Learn how to insert a shockwave flash object into a message. They can be really fun. I use this for the Smiley Central Talking Smileys, Webfetti Games, and other flash objects.
-:¦:--:¦:--:¦:--:¦:--:¦:--:¦:--:¦:- MESSAGE BOARDS General
- This is the main message board for everything other than mailbox, banner swap, etc. If you want to post a message and you don`t know where to put it, put it here. Banner Swap
- Share your group with A&S members (and other visitors). Instructions for adding your banner to the board are here
. Post Office
- Create a mailbox for yourself so other members can leave you a message. Start a new thread for your mailbox. You can delete and/or re-add your mailbox anytime. Backgrounds
- Use these "table" backgrounds to decorate your messages. I only have a few on the board right now as a sample. I will add more as I can, and you are encouraged to add any that you have to share with the group. Make sure that anything you add is copy and pasteable within the group. Fun & Jokes
- If you`re into telling or reading jokes, or you find something fun to share, you can put it here. Smiley Central
- This is where I will be uploading smileys from Smiley Central and other sources. I am adding searchable words to the Subject to make them easier to find, and I will also have them indexed in the Menu. If you are looking for something specific that I don`t have indexed, please let me know on the General
board, and I will see what I can find for you.
If you have smileys to share, you can start a new thread. If you are sharing a theme of smileys (like summer or winter, etc.), then please put the word "summer" in the Subject. You can share a miscellaneous grouping of smileys, but they would not be as easy to find in a search since they wouldn`t have a "key" word in the Subject. Please do a search first to see if the theme that you want to share already has a thread, and then add your smileys there.
Webfetti Glitter & Graphics
- Glitter graphics and widgets. The widgets are shockwave flash games, countdown clocks, clocks, and eCards. Motitags
- These are "cutesy" animations and come in many themes and emotions indexed here
. But there is also a classic set of Smiley Central smileys. View All Message Boards
: There is a decorative divider in the menu just above General Messages. Click that to see all message boards in a single view.
I will add more to this page as I think of it, so check back again.
