Emoticons are here!
Well, while we are not breaking any news here, I did want to make a post about the emoticons you can use on this site. I know I promised that I would get this out the other day but better late than never right? So basically it will automatically detect emoticons based on a handful of standard ones. Below you will find a table of those emoticons
So how do you use them? You can simple surround the word in the left side in colon characters and it will work! So for example, to do a smile you can do the standard colon with parenthesis or you can do :smile : (with no space of course). I had to leave that space in there so it would not parse it, but don't leave it in and you get the same smiley face... see
I will also post an article later with all the emoticons and the ASCII-art equivalents You can certainly post the word, but most people use the ASCII art version so it will be helpful to know what those are.
I hope you guys enjoy using them! Let's not go overboard though... I think an emoticon here and there can really lift your post at times. Enjoy!
