Smilies are small graphical icons which you can insert into your posted messages to convey an emotion or feeling, such as a joke or embarrassment. To use the clickable smilies, simply click the smiley that you want to insert into your message (only visible in Standard or Enhanced post editor modes), or click the Show All Smilies link (if available) to access the full list of smilies. Certain combinations of text characters can trigger smilies. For example, :) is converted into a smiling face. There is a page that lists all the smilies on the forum. Additionally, you will see a checkbox which you can select when you make a new post, which will allow you to 'Disable Smilies.'
