Kidnapping emoticons
« on: January 09, 2015, 08:04:00 PM »

I think the Melnet emoticons are charming and amusing. Is there a way of kidnapping them and using them in day to day emails outwith the forum?

right click, and "save image as" in most browsers. Not kind to link to the copies on melnet's host machine - it will add (albeit minutely) to the forum's cost. Impolite

In either case there may be copyright issues. I think most of the simple smiley type ones are Public Domain already. Others must advise about the forum specific ones: moving melodeon onwards …

Open up the message editor, right click on any icon and select "Save image as.." or similar and save it.

Most email programs let you compose emails in HTML (often it's the default) and that lets you embed images. For example in Thunderbird just drag the image from a file manager window into your message text.

At the risk of sounding like a broken record (there should be an icon to warn of a member's hobby horse, e.g. modes for Chris 8) and the superiority of the B/C/C# for George  :|glug and the following for me …  :D ):

If my memory serves me well  :||:   :|||:  and  :M were created by ladydetemps of this parish (but not recently) who could be asked by PM if she has a view over copyright.

Brian, all is OK if you copy the icons to eg desktop, and then eg drag drop them into your email as needed, as per Anahata (have done this myself). Not sure of the © situation on melnet's moving ones, that's all.

Linking to images from off site used to be considered iffy. But the telephone line I put in here last week will be ablte to download 30-40,000 of them per second. Bandwidth isn't the problem it was

See this topic hasjumped into "support" overnight ;) so we might getva definative steer from our Admins :|glug
