Hi guys, This might be a dumb question but what the emoticons are which are at the bottom. The side ones I guess can be used to emote how one feels while writing. The ones at the bottom they're my query esp. hearts, exclamation & the question mark. If I've missed something or some page where I could read the info. would be great

They are the emoticons for the post heading line.

What do u mean when u use one of these emoticons, what 're u tryin to say for e.g. when u use an the exclamation button or emoticon or for that matter the question one or the heart one :)? Confused little bit about them

Does this mean that the emoticons used in this way are to signify in a Big way (Over the TOP) or as in using Capital Letters so that everybody knows in no unambigious terms what ur feeling about a particular subject.

Sushubh, That I know as bad etiquette, the only thing was an analogy to get this little thing in my head. Small things lead to big things, that's the way I feel. Trying to get the small concept so have a fuller understanding of things built on top of that.

As I had told, it highlights your general mood about what u r going to post.But I suspect u r killing time by continuing such a trivial topic for so long...[ Don't give me a kick though ! ] :lol:
