Hi there, and welcome to The Motley Fool! I hope that you find your time here to be enjoyable and enriching.

The smileys and frownies next to the quotes are simply whether or not the stock is up or down for the day.

The Fool 50 was an index that the folks at the Motley Fool had created with input from the Fool community, if I remember correctly. The goal was to create a more representative index than the Dow. It's been discontinued for a while now, but there are still references sprinkled throughout the site.

With the Internet, skeletons are never in the closet, they're out for everyone to see!

Not that the Fool 50 is actually a skeleton, it was a fine thing to track, it just didn't interest many people.

hope this helps!
Big Chief
