I need the smilies

If you use reply - rather than quick reply - or else click on the "Go Advanced" button just beneath the quick reply box, then you'll get the proper message box with all of the featuers.

also note that this is a beta version of vbulletin 3 - when the final release comes out, do expect me to add certain modifications afterwards, as they are released - likely, more smilies, for a start. :)
