Hello! I am new to this website, I look forward to trying to expand my understanding of magic with anyone here. and a side question, does anyone use faces on this website? (like ^-^ or :D) also, to get an understanding of the fourm rules, i cant say my sexual orientation? im trying to be sure. and if i already crossed a line let me know.. i dont want to get banned.
Yes, many members on the site use "faces" or emoticons when talking in the chatter and such. It is common. If you click on "Info" above the chatter box, you will be taken to a page where there is a list of commonly used ones and how they appear in the chatter.
Concerning the other question, many members also put that sort of information on their profiles/bios if they feel they want to. You will not be banned for that.
