The Importance of Smilies

Posted October 26, 2007 at 04:43 PM by Dragna

Smilies have been a long standing tradition on pbp boards, originally intended to provide visual emphasis for some very basic emotes: Happiness, Sadness, Anger, Surprise and Confusion. Primitive Pacman heads began dotting the web like so many yellow, pixelated flowers in an endless field. In time, these similies grew into staples of internet communication, becoming as intricate and varied as the people using them.

I was thinking ...

(reminiscing also, somewhat)
