I’ve seen this question asked a few times so thought maybe we could have a post with some instructions to help people out as we migrate over here. This forum is equipped with lots of fun features like pictures right in our posts. I’ll put some basics and useful links here. Feel free to add your own favorites.
- Smilies and Emoticons - These are done a little differently here. They require the colon ( sign plus a word followed by another colon (:), so : cry : without the spaces would look like . When you first type : it will actually give you a very short list to choose from and as you type letters it will filter that list. So if you want a tree, a drink, or even a camel they are all there so try it out. There are hundreds that we’ve found so far but who knows how many are actually built in. Here’s a good list of some and there could be even more.
- Animated Gifs - There is really no limit to these and they are easy to use. Simply find the one you want copy the URL to it and paste it into your post and the forums with automagically insert it for you! Here’s a few I found out on the web. Feel free to add your own favorites!
