So the title says it all.
Anyways, many people use certain emojis in certain ways on the forum. Sometimes it adds to the flavor of the post, while sometimes it's not really that good.
1. The Winky Face ()
While this emoji isn't bad, it's overused. To make matters worse, it's used in not the best way. This is supposed to replace the classic "wink wink cough cough" phrase, commonly to point out someone/something. Yes, pointing out someone is not the best thing to do, but that can be used in a positive way (for example you tag someone who's really good with sin and cos @Rawrbear). I mean yeah you're technically "pointing out the rules" but still it defeats the purpose of this sort of comical emoji.
2. The Slight Smile ()
This is basically the winky face 2.0, if you get what I mean. This is supposed to be kind of a slight smile (ex. "Thanks for the feature ") ( corny jokes XD (btw if you don't get it, I said "It's supposed to be kind of a slight smile")). Yes, the slight smile can be used for "Follow the rules", but it's not really used in the right context. If it were to be used, a more plausible context would be using it after "We're here to make you safe".
If you disagree in any way, feel free to reply but do not flag.
