What is this site for?
Some Steam emoticons display letters. These alphabetic emoticons could be used to write Text. And that is what the "EMOTICONVERTER" is there for. Type in the text you want to write in a beautifull font. Select the letters you own and our converter will convert it into the short cuts of alphabetic symbols you can use in chat. If you don't have a certain letter, no problem, letters with no Symbol selected leave the original letter behind.

What are steam emoticons?
In 2013 Steam added trading cards, badges and with them emoticons. Since then several games have implemented these features. Emoticons can be used in Steamchat by typing the shortcut to it or by clicking on its image from the selection box of emoticons. In order to bea ble to use an emoticon you have to own it.
How do I get Emoticons?
In order to unlock emoticons for your Steamchat and/or Forum posts you have to own said emoticon. When completing a set of Trading cards of a certain game you can craft it into a badge and you will be rewarded with a random emoticon of that game. To get a certain emoticon the best bet is to buy it in the stem community market or trade steam items with somebody who owns it. To check what emoticons you already own click the smiley button in Steamchat.
Do I need to enter my steam password to use this site?
Absolutely not. This converter only uses data you input, there is no connection to your steam account or anything whatsoever. There will be a cookie (a small text file) saved to your pc saving the emoticons you selected, that way you don't have to redo all input again each time you visit the site, but this data will stay on your pc and is never send to the server. In fact all conversion methods run on your pc.
What is that weird character string, below the conversion fields for?
That field is to load and save different emoticon fonts. If you have a lot of steam-emoticons or different account with different sets you might want to save the settings for both instead of having to check every box again when you switch between them. In order to save your current set-up, copy the characters and save it to a text-file on your pc. Next time you want to use that combination again simply copy the characters and paste them to the box. Click on load and your old set-up will be loaded. The last set-up you used will be saved for the next time you visit the page.
