Hahaha that's just searchman's trademarked emoticon.

It's like I always like using the "owned" one!

what's the story behind joshers?

When deciding on an emoticon to represent SEARCHMAN, I chose joshers because he appears to be either:

A) Searching for something......
B) Jumping up and down on the search button.....
C) Sort of flying around looking for someone to help......
and
D) Jumping up and down in frustration over lack of a "search first" mentality!

"joshers" seems like a Britishism-anybody know how or why it got attached to the little bouncy white emoticon?

For nostalgia's sake here is the thread SEARCHMAN was born in, his first appearance, his first post:
http://mazda3forums.com/viewtopic.ph...=search+button

The thread where he first spoke of his "mission"
http://www.mazda3forums.com/viewtopi...n%2A+discussed

And a thread where he explains the process:
http://www.mazda3forums.com/viewtopi...hman%2A+topics

Unfortunately many of SEARCHMANS "Greatist Hits", the threads where he argues and defends the importance of keeping info in one place for the benefit of all, have been lost.

:smokin: **searching is the new cool.** :smokin:
