Default Symbols on post

I haven't been able to find what the symbols at the bottom of a post stand for. Could someone explain them or direct me to where I can find out their meanings?

Thanks

If it isn't obvious who owns the post (power company, whatever), I would start by calling District Property Management: 352-753-4022.

Uhhh, what "post" are you referring to? Forum posts? Lamp Posts? Posts cards? Post Toasties?

If you mean the forum posts, just try each one. You can't break it. They seem pretty obvious except maybe for "multi-quote" which allows to you "quote" multiple posts from others then reply to them in one single reply rather than multiple replies. I don't see "symbols" except for the "thumbs up" which lets you "LIKE" a post (one of the dumbest things ever invented thanks to Facebook).


EXAMPLE OF MULTI-QUOTE:

I know I shouldn't tack on this question, but the Devil made me do it. What do the "Thanks" and "Thanked xxx times in xxx posts" mean? How do you thank someone?

You click the "thumbs up" button to "thank (ie. LIKE)" a specific post. "THANKS" = "LIKES" "Thanked XX Times" is how many times people thought your previous posts were amazing and want to show their love. Frankly (thankly?) I'd prefer if you send me $50.

I "thanked" your post so you can feel the love and affection of being "liked" .

I thanked you back! I was wondering if the "thumbs up" was supposed to be the equivalent of a "thank"...it doesn't seem to quite fit.

And all the unnecessary negative "stupid" comments in 90% of the topics here that don't contribute in any possible way really help. NOT.

Despite the answers you're getting, I'm guessing that you are asking about the cute symbols that appear at the end of messages on TOTV. If so, when you
write a post or respond to a post on TOTV there is a box that pops up to the right of the message box that shows what they call Smilies. If you put your cursor over any of those symbols, it says what it is. If you click on More at the bottom of that box another small pop-up will appear listing all available Smilies and what they are. To include one in your message just click on the one you want.
