    Did it have to get bumped? I liked it and used it in my sig [​IMG]

    Me too.

    Here it is.

    Just right click, save to your PC and upload to your uploads page. I think you can still use it in your sig that way.

    I tried to use it from my own files (I host my own images on my website) but it wouldn't work. We'll see if this one will. I hope so!

    Edited to add: Nope. It won't allow outside images. Image tag is Off. While I sort of understand it, I'm not very happy with it, small images in sigs, especially those hosted offsite, shouldn't be a problem, I use them in all of my sigs on other forums. Oh well.

    I think we were trying it out at the same time.
    I think I need to complain to the management. [​IMG]

    You can manually put it in your posts, though it is a pain to do that each time

    I never understood what that one was supposed to mean. Care to explain?

    Happy little teapots don't need explaining. They just are.

    That's right, Terri. My East Frisian Blend is my morning cuppa, with a little milk and honey. Anything else is taken neat [​IMG]

    Notice to all members:

    Teapot has been demoted from "smiley" to "image". Over the past few months some new smilies were hired and Teapot's performance had been decreasing (we think because of a drinking problem). Teapot had received several verbal and then written warnings about performance, but in the end, we decided together that "smiley" just wasn't a good fit. Teapot will still be visiting the forum from time to time as a consulting image but is not longer a full time Smiley.
