POF Messageboard Emoji's/etc...Page 1 of 2    (1, 2)
Is there a post here (or can this be the post) where all of the available emoji's/font options are placed? For instance, I've seen an emoji of a smiley face rolling on the ground. How do you do that? Also, can you bold/underline/italicize text? If so, what's the coed to do that? All I see is the code to quote someone. There's nothing in the FAQ for messageboards (although there is something for Chat, which hasn't been available for a few years...).

Can anyone help?

On the first page of the help board about 10 lines down you will see:

There was one a L O N G time ago and I think the FAQ: How To Quote, Bold, Italicize and thread at:
http://forums.plentyoffish.com/datingPosts469064.aspx
had many listed. The page with the official list, and many of the posts in the above link, with instructions were deleted when use of Emoji's were strongly discouraged due to overuse.

If you find information on the individual codes you used to be able to test them in an email to yourself. I'm not sure if they still work in the email messages any more.

Was just ready to post this and saw HSF_RGB post. I'm not sure if the Unicode emoticons work on POF. I seem to remember the codes were a colon, followed by a two or three digit number - or a word and closed with a colon. words like smile, roll, fishing, band were some if memory serves me.

The link that HFS_RGB referred to is a much shorter thread than the one linked above in this reply. Look thru it first for suggestions then look thru the one I gave you for more if you do not find what you are looking for.

Edit post is malfunctioning again so hers is what I tried in an email to myself and it worked. Lets see if it works in the forums...

I sent the following words to myself. Each word preceded and followed by a single colon without a space between the word and colon...
smile
roll
fishing
band

And this is what showed in the received email... (hope it works here)

Damned edit is messed up again. Third post now instead of being able to edit.

Those were the only ones I could thin of off the top of my head.

Probably not a good idea to start testing tons of them here. Trying them in an email to yourself and/or testing in one of the above test threads would be likely be better. There are probably some words/codes others can share here though.

I just found this...

Some may still work. Other people may post suggestions before this thread gets voted off. (I see it is up for vote.) I will decline to vote since I have posted suggestions.

EDIT:
Lets see if this edit is working yet before this thread is deleted.

My apologies for typing "HSF_RGB" rather than the correct "HFX_RGB. It is amazing sometimes how my dyslexia spills out onto the keyboard.

Again, my apologies.

POF tried to stop the use of emoticons a few years ago - the buzz at the time was that they were chewing through server space.
I've got a couple of sheets of them somewhere.....I still use the same one for a sign-off that I've used for years...........

Does anyone know how to change font colours? I am looking to change colours on POF event postings. Thanks for any help you can provide.

intricate_n_lace, HTML has been disabled for a few weeks now.

Try contacting the Event Moderator.

http://www.pof.com/viewprofile.aspx?profile_id=67643282

That is the URL of her profile.

Messaging her is not limited by any restrictions.

I have not seen an official word on this problem.

So this is what they expect a person to do? Just experiment until they find something?

How do I see the "code" of other post, so I can learn from the community?

What can I do with this info? if only I new how to use Codepoints in POF message!

Restated: How do I use codepoints in POF message?



Face With Rolling Eyes
A face displaying eyes glancing upward, indicating an eye-roll. This is used to show disdain, contempt or boredom about a person or topic.

Confusingly, this previously showed as a happy side-glance on Samsung devices.

Face With Rolling Eyes was approved as part of Unicode 8.0 in 2015 and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.

Codepoints
🙄 U+1F644

OK then.
Not sure what your complaint is. I thought you were looking for some of the codes so I posted that link with between 150 and 175 good codes.

Good luck with whatever your issue is.

TronJohn,
Based on my experience using the desktop version of POF, those codes I posted that Lurker linked to will work in messages sent on POF.

If you are using one of the phone apps, I cannot help you. I tried the app once but it was full of issues so I uninstalled it and have not tried it again.

It looks like you figured out how to format them with a code number or name bracketed by colons.
:(code number or text):

To test them in a message compose the message you want to send, paste it into a message to yourself and send it. Open the message to see if all the coding you used worked. Make adjustments if necessary. Then when the message looks the way you want paste it into the message box of the person you want to send it to. A couple extra steps but a foolproof way to be sure the message will look the way you want before sending it.

By the way, the italic, bold, and even underline coding works in messaging too.

Again, this advice is for the desktop version of POF. I do not know if it will work the same in the phone apps.
