Hello everyone!

I have turned on emoticons for the site.  You can insert an emoticon using the emoticon button at the top of the text editor (it looks like a smiley face), or you can type the ascii characters.  Below is a table containing all the currently supported emoticons that you can use in forums, assignments texts, labels, essentially anywhere you can use the text editor.  I hope these emoticons help everyone enjoy typing in Moodle more and be more expressive in their typing.  Do not use spaces when typing the ascii characters, I had to insert the spaces so that the text did not get automatically converted to an image.

Also, I have updated the auto save feature to save automatically every 15 seconds.  This may change in the future depending on feedback and system performance.
