Arrow A Tip for When You Post

When some people post, They do something like this:

Quote:
SAMPLE
~SAMPLE :acs::bas:
Notice the signature at the end of their post. I think when you do it on the profile, it's okay. I suppose just a simple:

Quote:
SAMPLE
~SAMPLE
would be okay. However, some people add pictures, smilies, etc.

If you want to add smilies and pictures, isn't that what signatures are for?

Well, the images could mainly be because you can only upload one signature picture. It's an easy way to be able to have a little bit more of yourself in your posts.

Yes but you can add up to two smilies. It just makes them look sorta crowded.

Smiles are nice to use, but they should be used appropriately, not just randomly. Let's say you think something is funny maybe put , or if you aren't talking about a certain webkinz, you can put the pet on there. It looks sloppy to just add them for no reason though. [rep]

You do have a point, signatures are supposed to be your 'Signing' of the post, hence the name 'Signature'. But then again, sometimes members do do that, who will it hurt if a member just puts something like '-Foreign ' or something like that after their post? It's their post right? And unless it is spam, against the rules, or offensive, I don't think it's that big a deal. So what if it is a bit annoying, thats just how they do things.

Rep for you!
Usually the new members and people that don't come on a lot do this. Although it's uncommon there's always someone that does this.I get 1 or 2 smileys but some people do like 20 of them. Like something like this:
Quote:
))
and it gets annoying.
But it is OK to sign your posts with your username like this:
Quote:
~Lizzyxwebkinz
but random smileys are uncalled for.

I think the use of smilies is okay but should be limited. Too many members post nonsense posts that include just smiley's or a few letters and some smilies. I say it is okay to use some smilies but not ALOT. Make your posts nice, helpful, informative, and full of adjactives. That is what makes your post a great post. Also this is called spam. Spam is against the rules so do not do it! It is very annoying and shows other members that your annoying and they will not want to be your friend even if you are a friendly, caring, helpful person! Random usage of smilies should be in your signature. Your signature can be anything you want it to be ( As long as it is appropriate and not offensive. ). You have a great point stripesanddots! Great thread. Rep.

I think these are great additions to posts, it really shows the feelings of the people that posted. Like if they are sad, they would put a sad face, happy a happy face, and so on.

I love smilies...have no issue with them. They add emotion to posts and put across a feeling that might have been passed over with just reading the words.
