Quotes first.

At the bottom right of each post are two green buttons. One says <<"REPLY>> and the other says <<+QUOTE>>.

To reply directly to the current post while quoting it, click the <<"REPLY>> button. You will be taken into the reply window, with the quoted post already there. You can remove text from the quote, but please put your new content outside the quote box. If you put your response inside the box, it will appear to moderators as an "empty" post--a quote without a reply.

To reply with multiple quotations, go to each post in the order that you wish to reply. In each one in turn, click the green <<+QUOTE>> button. It will turn red, and read <<-QUOTE>>. If you make a mistake, just click again and it will revert to green. The selected posts do not have to be in the same thread to which you are replying. When you have selected all the posts, then go to the bottom of the topic where you wish to respond. Click the <<ADD REPLY>> button. The reply window will launch, with all your quotes present in the order you chose them. See the previous paragraph for netiquette.

Smileys and other emoticons now.

When you are in the reply window, a box with smileys will appear in the upper left. To insert one, have the cursor where you want it in the message, and then click the one you want to insert. At the lower right a "Next" option will show the rest of the most common (they are presented randomly, so the same ones do not appear in the same places each time).

If you don't see the one you want, click "Show All" at the top and a pop-up window will appear with the complete list of available emoticons. Again, with the cursor positioned, just click the one you want.

Sometimes it is faster to just type the code for the one you want. The laughing face :lol: is represented by the code <colon>lol<colon>.

There is more to this topic, but this will be a good start. :)
