Smilies  

This is IMPORTANT.

I feel a bit ignorant despite having spent three years on TW. What, in your opinion, is the correct use of the smilies

crazy? I sometimes use it to stress that I am confused.
tongue? I tend to use it about the same way as I use wink .
Ribbon and Trophy as post icons - is there any difference?
Link as a post icon - does that mean link as in internet link? Or how do you use it?

Re: Smilies new [re: Emil]  

I recall some people agreed that the is kind of bitchy. It has always seemed to me, though, that it's more of a tongue-in-cheek expression than I-stick-my-tongue-out-at-you one.

And I'm beginning to recognize the lack of a crying emoticon, as well as a toothy smiling one. And a seriously crazy one would be cool! I mean, the one that has the title now looks more embarassed than crazy.

A crying smiley would indeed be quite good, I would have needed one just today. Another good one to have would be bored/sleepy icon.

OT & GIF OD new [re: Emil]  

None of you addressed the original question and the cluttering of this thread with little images makes it impossible to load.

Does anybody have a well-formed opinion on the difference between the Ribbon and Trophy post icons?

Re: OT & GIF OD new [re: Emil]  

I'm sorry. As the images load very fast on my computer (despite the internet connection usually being somewhat slow) I didn't realize they would cause problems to some viewers.

Alas, no, I have no idea what the ribbon stands for, other than that it looks cool. Maybe ribbon = this is cool, or deserves a special commendation, and trophy = this wins first place?

Sory, when I go back and read my previous post i see that it was very harshly formulated. Anyway on my excellent University internet connection, the page of the first 20 posts takes a few minutes!
And your gifs don't show up at all, Fairy. They were visible a week ago! (can I use that icon this way?)

Dude, I was using mysmilies.com years ago. Before it was mysmilies.com, even.

I'd really like to get them visible. I'm sure you're all anticipating to see "the Vulcan thing where you grab someone's pants".

Trophies and ribbons new [re: Emil]  

Most of my posts are award-winning (or tragically overlooked for awards) so I use the trophy icon a lot. It really should be reserved exclusively for Mr. TW but that is a programming issue for Evan to address in his spare time.

Why do I occasionally use the ribbon icon, then? Well, it is also to pat myself on the back for some fine posting, but perhaps on a lighter topic. The ribbon-to-trophy relationship is akin to using one exclamation point (!) instead of three (!!!). When I think of ribbons I think of state fair pie contests. You win, you get a ribbon. A trophy is given out for sporting events or horse races, and there is usually a cash prize too. It's a bigger deal.

So, in conclusion, use the ribbon when you are chuffed, and use the trophy when you are *well* chuffed.

The truth proves it's beautiful to lie. ~Wilco

If chuffed means 'impressed' then I understand what you just said. Atleast, I think so.

Honorable mention new [re: Emil]  

In reply to:

I'm guilty of being a frequent ribbon user. To me, it means that I like what I'm posting about (listy type things, usually) rather than I like my post about whatever it is. Err, something like that. And the trophy usually indicates that I like what someone else has posted. I think. Makes sense in my mind, it does.

A brief summary new [re: power2charm]  

I've flirted with smilies quite heavily in the past yet always lived to tell the tale. It's hardly an honourable pasttime, but will give you the cheap thrill that you crave.

actually means 'You are crazy, that makes no sense', or 'I didn't understand that you nutter'. Otherwise it could mean 'I stuffed up and now I am confused'. It really has more to do with confusion than craziness.
is pretty damn pissed off. Sometimes it's almost too angry.
Looks goofy, to me. I prefer because it's more genuine.
is 'Note the sarcastic wit in that comment', or 'You are an idiot'. Not to be confused with , which is all about being in on a joke or having a subtle but humourous understanding with another. Tongue is not as friendly as wink, not as wholesome - it should either be self-deprecating or insulting.
and are fairly obvious, but I rarely use them.
is the usual 'I am the best' smily. One of my favourites.
And is a very effective sad smily, as in 'You let me down' or 'I feel goddamn terrible'. Very sombre, and not recommended for regular use lest the entire board falls into depression.

Meanwhile, a couple of suggestions for new smilies (I don't use 'off-board' smilies):

[ suck ] : A smilie grabbing his crotch in a gesture of 'suck my dick' - useful for baiting the more wankerous TWers, and very useful as a retort against a fairly immature insult.

[ bird ]: A smilie flipping the bird (aka middle finger salute), similar to the last but used more as a defensive measure than a counter.

Yes, I believe their should be more offensive smilies available. We aren't all happy-go-lucky lackeys, you know!

I say it is and it's true
