On my phone and I pad I have a lot of emoticons (?) that I can just click on. Wouldn't it be possible to have this on Gransnet, instead of finding the appropriate symbols such as [^* and typing the word. By the time I've done that the moment has passed or crossed with someone else who is quicker than I am!!!!
Use the mobile site Atqui. There's a smiley in a circle at the bottom of the page. When you click on it all the emoticons are displayed and you just need to click on the appropriate one. I use the mobile sitvall the time now.
