    You’ve probably seen others use smilies before in e-mail messages or other bulletin board posts. Smilies are keyboard characters used to convey an emotion, such as a smile  or a frown . This bulletin board automatically converts certain text to a graphical representation when it is inserted between brackets [].  Here are the smilies that are currently supported by Wik it up…:
    smile[:)]big smile[:D]cool[8D]blush[:I]tongue[:p]evil[}:)]wink[;)]clown[:o)]black eye[B)]eightball[8]frown[:(]shy[8)]shocked[:0]angry[:(!]dead[xx(]sleepy[|)]kisses[:X]approve[^]disapprove[V]question[?]
    Creating a Hyperlink in your message
    You can easily add a hyperlink to your message.
    All that you need to do is type the URL (http://www.wikitup.com/forum/), and it will automatically be converted to a URL (http://www.wikitup.com/forum/)!
    The trick here is to make sure you prefix your URL with the http://https:// or file://
    You can also add a mailto link to your message by typing in your e-mail address.
    This Example:
    [email protected]
    Outputs this:
    [email protected]

No one else can edit your post, except for the forum Moderator or the forum Administrator. A note is generated at the bottom of each edited post displaying when and by whom the post was edited.

    Censoring Posts
    The Forum does censor certain words that may be posted; however, this censoring is not an exact science, and is being done based on the words that are being screened, so certain words may be censored out of context. By default, words that are censored are replaced with asterisks.
    What is COPPA?
