Emoticons sometimes help to make a point

Post by AZgl1500 » Sun Sep 30, 2018 6:18 pm

Some forums offer up Emoticons to help smooth out what is being said.
As we are not speaking "Face to Face", what we say can quite often be taken out of Context.

as an experiment, I am offering up Emoticons that "might be" of benefit here and there.

If they are over done, it gets to be too cheesy, but done appropriately, can be quite useful..

Why, there's a few forum-specific ones to the right of the post editor, and then you've got the full Unicode range to play with these days:

Yeah, right. Same to you, pal.

That's the problem with emoticons. You don't know who you're going to offend. Giving the thumb to an Australian is likely to end up with you getting a broken nose in return.

That's just because you guys down under are all upside down (I learned my geography!) so of course you'd misunderstand that one. :lol: :lol:

SCNR, and thx for the reminder. ;)
