    What Does Bump Mean?
    On another forum someone said to bump a thread. I have no idea what that is or how to do it. Any help appreciated!

    Hey WW -

    Basically it just means you post an additional reply to the thread which effectively bumps it to the top of the most recently visited threads lists, and ultimately gives it more exposure.

    Hope that helps.

    Many board owners actually don't like this 'feature'. So, before you start using it I'd suggest to see how things are handled on any given forum.

    look near the bottom of this page. if it says somewhere on the left that "smilies are on," click on it for the list. you can drag and drop them or note the code for some you may frequently use. then you can type it in.

    Talking Hmmmm....
    I'm not seeing the green smiley to the right, there is short list of icons just below the reply box. I did find the list of smilies where you could type the code.

    See if it works

    Yes - it works! I'm now an expert smiley maker!

    There goes the neighborhood!

    I thought that I only had to worry about Neil and BurgerBoy, but now that the secret is out, I am going to have to start cloaking my smilies.

    Now I will have more competition fighting for my title.

    I think you're right
    Neil,

    I couldn't find any green smiley to the right so that's probably true. I did find the page with the codes, however, so I can do smilies, but can't just point and click - have to code them in!

    Peace & Blessings,

    Which particular ones show up at the right are randomized But there should be quite a few there...I see 12 right now.

    Talking Below the Message Box
    Leader,

    When I click "reply" and am taken to the reply page, I see 14 smiley icons immediately below the "reply" box with the little radio buttons to click for your choice - nothing to the right. The icons I see are always the same ones, no rotation.

    Possibly Neil is right - you only get them after so many posts (Which would be how many, anyone?)?

    Peace & Blessings.

    that's the good part
    no one will tell you
    you just have to keep on posting as normal and.. they will appear.
    just like that. its one of those things, once you have been around for a while.
    they see that you are a steady member and you get smilies.
    when you have been here even longer, you will start to even more treats,
    like personal abuse, invited to witch gatherings , sent to websites that have disgusting pictures, and generally have the pi55 taken out of you by other members
    but the best part is,,,,, you are allowed to do it back.

    OH !!! and yes I forgot, you can learn about affiliate marketing at the same time
    just keep posting and they will appear

    Beats me, I know some other things are post-count related, but this is the first I've heard of smilies being restricted! I guess there was some problem with smiley abuse that I missed.

    Neil's right that all the post-count related numbers are secret, though. Among other things, ABW wants people to make "real" posts, not just try to hit a particular figure to unlock extras.

    There's no truth to the rumor that Sal paid Haiko to set a minimum number of posts to be able to use smilies!

    Ya'll shore know how to make someone feel right at home!

    I understand about the posting just to up the numbers. I've lurked for quite some time - simply felt too unknowledgable to contribute. I'm changing that. It's also nice to have people who actually know and understand what it is you're trying to do. I'm mean really, I don't get up at 4:00 a.m. because I want to "play" on the computer.
