No secret. You can search for smilies online and use them in our forums. I think the BB format is what is used. Or just copy them and put [img] in front of them and a brackets with /img in back. We prefer not the big ones.

May I have the last two stories? I would prefer the Juniper Tree, which is horrendous, but since it's not an option ...
