If you mean within your nickname, then you are limited to using old-fashioned text smileys (which won't be converted into graphics unlike the ones within posts).

You don't seem to have any entries (ie article pages) at the moment as not even your personal space page has content yet. smiley - erm So you could start by editing that. While it is still in plain text mode, you add smileys just the same way as you would when posting comments:

: - ) without the spaces becomes smiley - smiley

and for non-standard smileys you use angle brackets:

< choc > without the spaces becomes smiley - choc

It's only a little bit more complicated with entries in GuideML format:

<SMILEY TYPE="choc"/>
