Here is a great tip!

All the editing tools will "out" themselves if you hover over them with your cursor.

For newbies

:help: Helps members label the paragraph where they describe specific questions, problems,  for which they are seeking for support. Good for long posts.


:hi:    A logo to welcome newbies. We also have
Code:
*hi*
*welcome*
*bpdfamily*


Punctuation emojis
     :(    :cursing:           :caution:

 :cursing:  New emoji and a "Starbuck's safe way" to curse (Starbucks blocks some sites because of profanity). If are using nonsense words (e.g., $hlt, svck), use this tool. The Starbucks and Panera Bread censors can't read these. It's good for the community overall to not post profanity as it has caused the site to be banned on local servers.

 :caution: Added to punctuate when we are trying to direct a member away from what they are doing. This should be specially useful when members are not listening to advice from the group and we want to highlight the advice given.

Organizing emojis
