Emoticons
  What are emoticons  
 

Emoticons are traditionally formed from simple characters strung together and are typically used to convey emotions in emails, forums etc... They don't really stand out all that well though, and as most people will know here at the Message Board we're all for beautiful graphics. Therefore, it was decided that it might be a bit of a laugh to have colourful graphical representations featuring in the Message Board instead of the traditional character representations.

 


  Triggering emoticons  
 

So how are they used? Well, it's dead simple, simply type the traditional character representations into your message, and then once submitted they will be displayed as graphical representations in your message for all to see. Listed below are the emoticons currently available for the Message Board. No doubt we shall be adding to this list in the future.
