    To all the New Moderators. Congratulations. If you can put a good word in with Admin for me it would be much appreciated. This afternoon I've just noticed that my Viewers on this Thread now exceed 1000. I'm swelling with pride. But, trying to be modest, I'm wondering if Admin can award me 8 Smilies? It could be a long time before any of my other Threads get anywhere near this number of Viewers. After all, how often do you burn your White House down? westwind.

    Every time you ask, you lose a smiley

    Well done westwind, you made a most interesting post that I sure many people enjoyed. It was also the platform for a most enlightening philisophical discusion, top marks.

    Dear MeteorWayne. I guess you are now in a position where you can't be seen as favouring one particular Member when there are many other Members who are just as deserving. Folks, MeteorWayne really likes me, but he has to take this stance. I bare him no grudge and commend him for being so professional. I wonder if its worth approaching John Galt, I've given him at least 9 ""Likes "" . Still, I've got a better idea. The new Moderators, adelady, John Galt and my good pal MeteorWayne might like to consider having a 10 Smiley Day by way of celebrating their elevation to Moderator status? westwind.

    What exactly are you refering to when you ask about smileys? Are you talkning about the emoticons that anyone can put in posts?

    Is it a reference to the Byrds' song Eight Smiles High? Or Eminem's movie Eight Smile?

    Dear Paleoichneum. Wot's an emoticons? I went to grong grong University, strong in English and the Classics, but I never came across this one. No no no no Paleoichneum, a smile, an acknowledgement, a little giggle, and a warm fuzzy feeling. If it is a long time since you have experienced this feeling then I will award you three Smilies, this is all I'm allowed to Award. westwind.

    Ahhh, so you are talking about emoticons (the actual technical term for the similes, frowns, angry faces, etc.. ) that get included in posts.
