smileys and emoticons use

Post by jaystarter »

While on the subject of the return of the lost clapping smiley

Is it possible to copy smileys from this (or other) forums to use in email client such as Thunderbird

If so how? and is it legal or does copyright and suchlike come into it?

You can use our smileys for non-commercial purposes (see Rule #13 in our House Rules).

To download a smiley, right-click it and select 'Save image as...' or similar from the context menu (the exact text depends on the browser).
Best wishes,
Hans

Thanks for pointing out the rule. I see it saves as a .gif file which can be saved for other use.
