To The Top. When you bring a thread to the top it increases the thread's chances of being seen and answered.

Any reply that's posted will bring it to the top, but if there's nothing to say, you can just type TTT and everyone will know you are topping your thread in order to get more answers. Sometimes we top threads for another poster, that's when you will see something like "topping for Staceyloren." That means another poster is helping you get answers by topping it for you.

anytime you post anything new, it goes to the top--so just post!!.

If no one has responded in a while and someone wants something to go to the "top" (people may notice the question more quickly or have an easier time finding good/interesting information if you top), they will type "TTT" or "topping" but not an actual message so this will happen. You can see what time something is posted on the left of your screen and all are in descending time order.

just in case you are wondering ( a couple of these took me a while to figure out - gang, feel free to correct me)

OP = Original Poster
DH = Darling Husband
IMO = In my opinion
CC = Credit Card ( ok , kind of obvious)
SIL = Sister in Law
WO = Without


Hope this helps

jules,

how about this one - I don't get to use it often, perhaps when I'm older and the bladder has 'issues'

Not sooo newbie, but still newish, but always wondered why when I post a smiley, he always looks like a clown!! Didn't care until I started posting more and its ALWAYS a clown.

(did it come out a clown?)

As I read this over, I seem really pathetic to care but I'm still going to post beacause I've been wondering for a while and I want to know!! Is there something I'm missing? What gives?

I'm so glad someone posted these questions! If DH is "darling husband", what do husband's use to refer to their wives? DW?

Also, how do you add the cute Fodor's smiley's? I cant find an icon or anything. Thanks!

OO, OO, OO (raising my hand in as Horseshack would do in Welcome Back Kotter)

I know part of the answer to that one. I learned it right here a few months ago.

If you type two (( and then a letter followed by )), you'll get a cute something. I'm not sure what all the letters are to bring up the different symbols but it's fun to just experiment.

There is a page somewhere that tells you all this. I think I saw it on my daughters IM page.

This one is with an 's' in the middle of the (( ))

The feminine of DH is LW (Lovely Wife -- not "little woman"!)

The clown face and all other smileys are documented at http://www.fodors.com/forums/smileys

Best wishes,

Thanks! That clears up a lot. I have always done my regular email smileys with a "o" as the nose. I guess Fodor's think that looks like a clown nose!! I Love it!

Happy postings!
:~) (just trying something new!)
