    In this thread, I'll be showing you certain features of the forum that may not be immediately noticeable.
    The first that I'll be talking about is the use of the smilies (emoticons) in the posts.  When you click on the smilie icon in the editor bar

    you will see this

    If you notice, in the upper right hand corner is "Categories".  Clicking on that will pull up a list of all the categories.  The reason to do this is that the main screen you see only shows a limited number of the smiles in each category.  As you can see, the non-animated one has over 100 (at time of this post) but only about 20 show up on the initial screen.

    Once you click on a category (in this example the non-animated) your view will change to the category title and show all the smilies in that area in a scrollable area beneath it.

    Next, we will talk about the "Mood icons" - which are the little characters that show below the avatars of the users.

    You can access this feature by clicking on the yellow smiley in the user bar at the top of your page.

    Once you click on it, you should see something similar to the below

    You can click on any of the icons and that is what will show below your avatar.  You can further change the text in the "Currently Feeling" area and update it.  I do ask that you don't get offensive with your input.  That could result in your ability to use this feature being blocked on your account if reported.
    The "Mood" is shown via your avatar area in posts and is also reflected in your profile hover card

    and on your profile itself
