EMOTICONS

Because let's face it, when faced with a face going :3 you don't necessarily know what the heck is going on. Never fear, Icarus is here to explain what a : / is, and when to use it.

so I'm apparently often super-enthusiastic, which is unsterstandable because I am :D

I also often use a mild annoyance face. that means I'm a mild annoyance to other people, right? :P

Shouldn't this be stickied?

#25 Posted by Icarusflies (12491 posts) - - Show Bio

@YourNeighborhoodComicGeek: Ah, thanks.

@ShootingNova: Maybe. Do you think it should be? I'm not really sure, but I'm always a little wary of sticky-ing my own threads.

#26 Posted by YourNeighborhoodComicGeek (20155 posts) - - Show Bio

Did you see my last post in page 1? I had some good emoticons. Also,I think you should sticky this.

#27 Posted by Icarusflies (12491 posts) - - Show Bio

@YourNeighborhoodComicGeek: I'll add the mustaches right away. ;)

And that's two votes for sticky-ing I'm seriously considering it. >_>

Haha.

@Icarusflies: (yeah, I did that on purpose :D) It's nothing when you wake up and then you do your daily PM's and then you get 32 PM's unnecessarily :(

@ShootingNova: (You are so lucky I am a merciful mod. SOOOO lucky. ;P)

Yeah, that happened to me this morning too. Because I keep being dumb and making threads that people actually decide to comment on as blogs.

Same. This morning there was a bunch of people quoting others that just happened to quote me but had no relevance to me overall.
