    Post Icons or Folders?

    Do you want to continue using the icons in posts, or start using these simpler bandwith-saving folders?
    <FORM METHOD=POST ACTION="http://www.wopr.com/cgi-bin/w3t/dopoll.pl"><INPUT TYPE=HIDDEN NAME="pollname" VALUE="981936150Eileen">
    Post Icons or Folders?
    <INPUT TYPE=RADIO NAME=option VALUE="1"> I prefer the simple Folder
    <INPUT TYPE=RADIO NAME=option VALUE="2"> I want my Smilie Icons back
    <INPUT TYPE=SUBMIT NAME="PollSubmit" VALUE="Submit vote"></FORM>

    Re: Post Icons or Folders?

    How about a compromise. Can we use an Icon on the Post header but not within the body of the text? I would imagine that would reduce the overhead significantly without greatly impairing any freedom of expression. However, I know nothing about how web pages are set up or stored, I may be way out of line here.

    Post Icons always appear on the Subject line. Are you confusing them with Emoticons?

    Re: Post Icons or Folders?

    Seriously though, what I think I really meant to say was, I like that we can personalize our postings in some manner but obviously any band-width hogs should be dumped. I was trying to suggest that an alternate possibility may be to allow various Post Icons and drop the Emoticons. I would guess that more Emoticons are here than Post Icons but I don't know how they compare space wise.

    Dropping emoticans altogether would call for a new Poll.

    Well, I for one, do not need to be polled. I trust you to do whatever is best to maintain the site. I just like seeing someone smile or give me a wink. Somewhere.

    Well, you know, they are all of shoddy manufacture anyways.. (If you look closely you can see the styrofoam sticking out...) [img]/w3timages/icons/laugh.gif[/img] They were'nt built to stand the test of time, that's for sure, but the longer they're around, the better. [img]/w3timages/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Drk.
