    Because planet-smilies.net is a malware site (I did not know this until our host and Google flagged our site for containing links to a malware site a couple of weeks ago).

    http://www.braintalkcommunities.org/...graphics/page2 read the last 3 posts on that thread.
    Question: Why can't I post links or pictures?
    Question: Why can't I have a signature, avatar, or profile picture?
    Question: What's wrong with my account?

    Answer: You are in the "registered users" user group. This group is very limited in what it can do. This will annoy spammers to no end Just keep posting once you have been registered for 30 days and have made 11 posts your account will be "unlocked".

    It's really easy to put someone on ignore and it's strongly recommended that you do so with people who's posts you don't like.

    Step 1 - log in
    Step 2 - click on the "settings" link
    Step 3 - click on the "edit ignore list" link on the left side of the screen
    Step 4 - type (or paste if you copied and pasted it) the username of the person you want to ignore
    Step 5 - click the "ok" button on the right of the screen

    Easy peasy and will lower your blood pressure. One important note though, this won't hide quoted posts. It's an oversight on the developers part and it's not an easy thing to "fix." So if someone quotes someone you have ignored, you'll see the quote.

    Alternatively when you click on a person's name and view their profile page, underneath their avatar, there is a option that says, "Ignore this person". Click that link and then click the yes button.

    Ok since the smiley itself wasn't infected I added it to our generic smilies :) To use it in your sig use this url (without the space of course)

    thank you mike, I wasn't using planetsmiley because I know many of those type of sites have all kinds of nasty stuff. I've fixed too many computers not only for myself but a few other people who didn't know or weren't careful.
