  • If you click on the small downwards arrow beside the smiley face, it will open up a box of lots of emoticons. If you hover your mouse above them but don't click, I get a small box of text that opens at the bottom of my screen which gives you a clue as to what they are all supposed to mean. image

    Hi Logan, here's my take:

    image Happy or good intentions intended.

    image Very happy.

    image 'Knowing' wink.  Often used when giving tried and trusted advice.

    image Unhappy.

    image Very unhappy.

    image Astonished.

    image Blushing (eg embarrassed.)

    image Unsure (eg how did that happen?)

    image Tasty/hungry.

    image Referring to a comment above or rolling eyes (as in 'I knew that would happen!)

    image Referring to a comment above and probably disagreeing.

    image Referring to a comment above and strongly disagreeing.

    Any of the above 3 can also be used as in "looking up at the heavens."

    image "Erm, I really didn't expect that!" or weird.

    image same as image?

    image Angry!

    image Scared!

    image Wretching!

    image Tired

    image Verdun image (eg I might not have really meant what I wrote)

    image Verdun in a different mood!

    image I shall say nothing!

    image not sure about this one..

    image Happy and carefree (as if on holiday)

    image Clever clogs

    image Partying

    Yes, they have multiple interpretations depending on which forums you've used before.  Different folk can use them differently so the real answer is: "it depends!"

    Then again, some people don't get a toolbar, so then you have to use colon, semi colon and the bracket.

    there are hundreds on the iPad, none of them work on this site, just come out as a row of question marks.image
