      Major Update to OL (please click to open)   02/09/2016

      Sorry for the inconvenience, but we had to update OL and there have been some serious changes made by IPB. The real bad news is that they had to merge User Names and Display Names. This meant that I had to choose between bad and bad. I opted to keep the log-on information the same, so you can get on OL like you always did, but now your User Name is displayed. If your User Name and Display Name were the same, you will not feel the change. If they were different, you are probably irritated right now. I will figure out how you can change this so you can revert to the Display Name you used before if you like, however this may entail a change in how you log-on. The good news is that OL is now searchable from the very beginning. This means all the old posts from the A-Team in Objectivism (and everybody else) will finally show up when you search for something. I will keep changing this announcement as we adapt to these new changes. It's a pain, I know, but after looking around the backend for a bit, I believe the benefits will far, far outweigh the current irritation. They changed things in a hamhanded way and I don't like that, but I can't do anything about it. Benefit-wise, they actually did a good job, so please bear with us. In addition to this change, many good things are coming over time. You are the reason OL exists and I am sorry you have to go through this. Think of it like birth pangs... (All right, all right, that's forcing it.  ) Michael

The whistling emoticon

:-"

I'm not sure why the whistling smiley doesn't appear when you click on it, but if you type in a colon, a hyphen and a quotation mark, the whistling emoticon will appear. That is the workaround for now.

Keep Smilin'

I ran into an issue where I had to turn off the smilies because I was typing a parenthesis after the number eight and it made the smiley with the shades. Roger shared this workaround:

I had to disable the smileys because a happy face with shades popped up every time I typed 8)

Kat, all is not lost. I've run into this problem before, myself, and I found that there is a simple way to avoid generating an unwanted smiley, when you need to type a number eight followed by a parenthesis. Simply put a space between the number eight and the parenthesis! Here is the difference in how it looks with and without the space:

8 ) (with the space)

8) (without the space)

Thanks for the tip, Roger!
