Hi! I have noticed that many people use smileys on this site. Are they safe to use lol. By that I mean that I'm not likely to have someone try to hack my computer once I start using them? Where do I get them from, I want some hehe lol.

As others have said, it's a bonus once you reach 200 posts. They are quite safe to use (they DON'T come from SmileyCentral or anywhere like that!) but you can only use 3 per post (a good thing in my opinion!)

Thanks for that. By posts does that mean TOTAL posts i.e. starting a discussion and commenting. Are they all added up to make the 200? Please explain.

It will not be considered as number of post once it is a comment, it will not change the number after your name. But you are still earning with that comment though

I'm sorry - "200 posts" is a little inaccurate. 'User Rating' of 200 (the number against your name) is what I should have said. Your User Rating increases: 1) When you make a discussion that gets at least one response 2) When you respond to a discussion for the first time You are paid for your participation here and that means for every qualifying discussion (with at least one response), every response you make to a discussion (though I'm not sure about the second and subsequent responses to the same discussion - very few people respond twice to a discussion on purpose!) and every comment you make. The last is important because it is really the comments that make a 'discussion'. If you start a discussion and nobody responds, you may as well have been talking to thin air; if you get some responses and don't add comments (either because there's nothing more to be said or because you don't believe it's worth it), then you are missing out on the thing that distinguishes a 'question and answer session' from a discussion and also on potential earnings. If a subject is at all worth discussing, then you should have a good deal to say about it once others have had their say! The earnings algorithm is complicated (and we aren't allowed to speculate on how it works) but I have certainly made 40 or 50 cents in a day simply by starting one discussion and commenting (I hope with quality) to the 30 or so responses that I had. One good discussion a day - with responses and comments - can keep one quite busy and is far more profitable than a dozen poor discussions which aren't worth commenting on!

Hi Janey! What you need to do to get them is to respond more on discussions so this will increase the number of your posts. I've been here for a month now and I got to use them when I had my 200 posts. So you see, that fast, I know you can get yours in soon time too Happy lotting

Once you reach 200 posts, then you will be able to use the smileys. It will be under your avatar called mylot code. You still have a wasy to do, but once you get there, then you will enjoy using them like the rest of us are. I find that they help me express the way I am feeling, mubh better than if I tried to type it all out. They are lots of fun to use and I am glad taht I am suing them. The funny thing of it is though, that I didn't start using them when I reached that point. I don't know why, but I just didn't. I guess I wasn't all that interested in using them at that time, or I didn't know I could, but once I started using them, I have never stopped. Good luck to you and happy myltting.
