So, how do I get rid of the Walmart yellow "happy face" next to my name when I post? I didn't see any with edit profle or edit preferences. It just seems to default to the "happy face."

I think that little icon means your visiting the site. If you look at others you'll see a "Sleeping" icon, which I take to mean they're not online, or least not currently visiting the site.

OldScout. If you don't like the "Content" face icon, then go to the upper right of this page, to the right of the [Log out] menu option, click on the face icon and change it to something else.

Ha! I would have never clicked on that!

Now I'm going to want to click on everything to see if it does something laugh

BTW, we did have a couple days of Sun last week, but they're behind us and now it's back to cold, windy, and gray frown

OK, thanks for the information. The smiley face just reminds me too much of "Wally World" and "Have a Nice Day" chemically induced blandness.

LOL. Very funny, Oldscout. It also reminds me of the skinny ankled black sock wearing corporate smile in your face but stab you in the back cold undertaker handshake they give you also.

Such is the state of affairs in the kwa.

Larry
