Unlike many other items in vBulletin, the display order of a smilie actually affects the final HTML output generated by your board.
Consider this example where you have two smilies:
|Smilie Name||Smilie Text||Smilie Image|
The smilie display order controls the order in which smilies will be parsed. If Smilie 1 were to be parsed first, not only would all instances of :o be converted to
, but also the first two characters of Smilie 2 would be matched and converted, leaving you with
