Question Why do I see missing smiles in imported posts and frowns in other posts?

Q: Why do I see http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif instead of in some of the old posts which were imported from UBB?

A: Our old Forum script was UBB which uses the [IMG] tag for smiles and vB does not. We have permanently disabled/turned off the use of the [IMG] tag for security reasons so these smiles do not appear. This feature works properly with all posts made using vB.

Q: Why do I see a pink frown in some of the old posts which were imported from UBB?

A: Because of a human error in the way the icons were named. My appolagies for this glitch. This will not be fixed on a global basis because it would involve hundreds of hours of manual labor to repair. What will happen is that if any of these posts pop to the top in a Forum listing we can edit the topic and post icon or you can make a special request for posts at or near the top in our Technical Questions Forum. This feature works properly with all posts made using vB.
