I see you were able to register and join, so you know that this group platform is not based in the US (it`s Argentinian). Most of what you will see here is in English, but there is Spanish in the message editor. I have left notes to aquaint you with the site on the Getting Started page. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with that.
Unfortunately, you`ve already said that you can not see the smileys that I am posting from Smiley Central like on this page with compliments. I have no idea why you can not see them; maybe it`s a setting that you have or the browser that you are using. Sorry, I can`t help with that, but please let me know if you figure out a solution. Fortunately there is a site that has most of the Smiley Central content and the smileys are linkable. Visit MyEmoticons.com to see and use their smileys.
Hopefully there will be other smilies here that you are able to see and use.
I am sure I haven`t covered everything so just let me know if you have any questions. Enjoy your time here and see you on the boards!
