Editing Your Posts:
After posting a message, you will be returned to the forum that you posted in and will have a chance to read over what you have written. If you find that you made a mistake, you have a short time to edit your post. Click the "EDIT" link, and you will be taken to a screen where you can edit your post.
The Personality Forge automatically translates emoticons into graphics and displays them in a post. The following table shows what emoticons create graphics. To create emoticons, just use the text in the middle column without the spaces in it:
|: P or : p|
