1 ~ Do you like smilies?
Yes. I like to use them as it shows how I feel for a moment. And some are so cute! ~-^

2 ~ What sort of smilies, e.g a smilie face () or a text smilie (:> ) do you like? (skip if you don't like smilies)
I like the :D in the smilie faces and the ^-^ in the text. Then there's ._. and XD

3 ~ Do you use smilies often?
Sometimes I'll put in a text smilie but they usually don't appear.

4 ~ Do you know why you do/don't?
They're cute is a reason why. I also think they're better to use than the face smilies as they need to be uploaded and junk.

1. Smilies are the best! If you can't find words to display your emotions (or you're just lazy...) then smilies are the thing for you! And they're just so much fun! :D

2. I use vB smilies more often, just because they're easier to remember (since I learned most of those first) and because I have done them so much in the past. Not to mention some of the smilies take me several seconds to type, if they have normally unused characters, such as ^ or *.

3. All the time! They're a simple way to convey your emotions, so they're very useful to me.

4. As I said, they're easy and fun. Doesn't get any simpler than that.

5. :D. I use this one all the time, especially when I crack jokes (which often aren't funny, but that's beside the point). A simply way to express extreme happiness without wasting time on adjectives. Perfect.

6. XD. I don't know why, but this is the one I use most often. It's almost frightening, really. XD

7. :P. Okay, what the heck is that supposed to be? He's smiling with his tongue sticking out. Freaky. Also on my hate list: ;o. For crying out loud, is he yawning or something?

8. :-* I never really got just why this looks like a kiss... it freaks me out.

1. Of course, I love smilies! Smilies are the best. They express your feelings, make posts cute, and they're just so much fun to use. And there's such a wide variety of them. You can use text to make some, and some are graphics. Smilies are just so leet. =D

2. I love the text smilies the best. Graphic ones are okay, but not as leet. ^.^

3. Yeah, I use them almost all the time! (V^.)>-<@

4. I use them because they're cute, and they're a great way to express my feelings. Besides, my posts would be so dull without them, lol. I can't imagine not using smilies in my posts or in AIM, honestly. o.o Thank God for smilies. XD

5. :yes: is teh bleetest. =)

6. ^.^ is my favorite. How can you not love it? It's freaking adorable? =)
I also love the Kirby ones. <(^^)> (>^) <( )> (^<) <(@@)>

7. :confused: sucks the most. DIE confused smilie! >:O

8. *_* < that one is incredibly ugly and confusing. What the heck does it mean, anyway? LOL, I never used it in my life.

Excellent poll, Cheesey :D.

1 ~ Do you like smilies?

Funny, about two weeks ago at the Goldenrod Tower I was talking about people who succumb to the ummmm behaviour so easily, but no, a few special people changed that, not a whole room. :) I do like smilies.

2 ~ What sort of smilies do you like? (skip if you don't like smilies)

I like the text smilies much better than the emoticons. With emoticons you're limited to only so many, and most of that doesn't demonstrate your own feelings at the time. With text smilies, you can create just about anything, and you have an unlimited range.

3 ~ Do you use smilies often?

I use them lots, mostly outside of TPM unless I'm in a really hyper mood then I'll use them just about anywhere :D.

4 ~ Do you know why you do/don't?

They express more than a bunch of writing could, and it makes you sound less serious and relaxed almost.

5 ~ What's your favourite TPM smilie?

;o and :)

6 ~ What's your favourite text smilie?

My favourite text smiley is the Times New Roman ^_^, XD ;_; :O =P =) =D =| and >=/

7 ~ Least favourite TPM smilie?

:P :mad: and :o

8 ~ Least favourite text smilie?

Hmm. ^_~ @_@ -_- :> :< =[ :} :-* =-o

1 ~ Do you like smilies?
They're fine :O. I use them a lot when I get bored or think about using lots of smilies (i.e. now) =P

2 ~ What sort of smilies, e.g a smilie face () or a text smilie (:> ) do you like? (skip if you don't like smilies)
Text smilies :d. The TPM smilies are annoying, and the AIM ones are crap. Plus the text smilies have a lot more options for the expression you want to show.

3 ~ Do you use smilies often?
yeah ^_^. They're fun :O.

4 ~ Do you know why you do/don't?
I do because it's a habit for me now ;p

5 ~ What's your favourite TPM smilie?
I don't like any of them =/. They all look all... bald... and round... and most look too yellow.

6 ~ What's your favourite text smilie?
>=/, =/, :O, :d, and variations of those... At the moment at least. And XD of course.

7 ~ Least favourite TPM smilie?
They all look weird. I guess the :o one tho because it interferes with my text smilies if I forget to hit "Disable Smilies in This Post".

8 ~ Least favourite text smilie?
I dunno... Ones that use - as a nose I guess. Like =-0, :-), and stuff like that.

1 ~ Yeah, I like smileys. It's actually sort of boring without them. o_o;
2 ~ I like both, but use text ones more because most of the new picture smileys look odd.
3 ~ Yes. All the freaking time.
4 ~ I use them frequently because I'm retarded and have had too much caffeine. And it's a habit you pick up from being here for 3 years.
5 ~ :lookout: (it died long ago, but it was great), :D, :yes:
6 ~ @_@, O_o, X_o, XD, =P, =D
7 ~ :P, the old one was so much better.
8 ~ None, I guess. O_o
