He's right. No emoticons. Jus those colons and words. Like :shakka:
K....let me diffuse the tension in this thread with one off topic post, if the mods allow....
So you wanna hear da potogee moment of the year?
Wen I first joined the forum recently, i immediately started using TAPATALK, and I saw all those words in colons.......so I started doing it too. I didnt know what the hell i was doing but i was all cool like, yeah, im using the lingo....uhraight! but had no idea they were originally icons!
So anyway, I always got the thumbs up, shaka, cool, but I didn't know what some others were. So i was like 'whats this
shit' and said fuckit - im gonna google for online lingo or urban slang, and see what this is about.
so, like a first class babooze, I looked up 'popcorn'........it said it alludes to drama........and it said sometimes people use popcorn icons or a string of them to signify someone's creating drama.......so I was like aw man, all these low rent posters, won't even shell out for the emoji keyboard app for their iPhones.....cheeeep city! LOL
So then for my next post, I was like, no more typing words in colons....im gonna use emoticons....yeah baby. so i opened my emoji emoticons keyboard, and was like...yo, where's the friggin shakes, the popcorn, and the shakas, and the stopjack......then I was allll confused!
So I said, lemme go on safari and go post on the website so I could use "THEIR" icons......and when I started typing, and saw the icon selection......all of a sudden it hit me......and all that typing of words in colons, and thinking people were cheap for not using emoji, etc, all crystallized....and I said out loud...."IM A DOUCHE UH-BAAAGGG, and was rolling on the floor laughing......or I should say :ROFL:
K.....if no body laughed at that potogee story, they ain't got NO sense of humor........sorry mods.
