^^ That's in the D&C forum because people tend to post full-size runway images. In SC, you sometimes have to post editorials that are often more than 6 images in thumbnail form. I scanned an edit that was about 20 pages long and posted 15 thumbnails in one post and the rest in the other. And yeah, in some threads, everyone is friendly and uses smilies to express their enthusiasm and excitement. I really don't see the problem, but whatevs.

Less talk. More Barack.

While I'm in the camp of overuse being annoying, we can't make a hard and fast rule about it because it is etiquette..
Additionally, our busy mod squad don't have the time to "police" to that degree.

We have in extreme cases sent PMs advising otherwise if that's of comfort...
and the overuse of smilies is considered under the umbrella of garish fonts/colors

You don't have to agree, but I'm not TFS police. I'm not even a mod.
I would far rather we strictly enforce an anti-racism policy than do anything to restrict smilies

We do have a broad range of ages and maturity levels here, and speaking as one of the more technically mature members , that doesn't bother me. I'm often impressed by how articulate and mature some of our younger members are. It's all good

There's a need for more individuality today, and my job is to cater to women, not dictate to them.

Smileys, etc. don't bother me anywhere near as much as the juvenile chat speak I see so much of here. To me, that should be an actionable offense worthy of Warnings.

It's one thing for a non-English speaker to post in broken English; at least they're trying. I certainly couldn't post anything at all in German or Ukranian . But the silly, non-sensical jibberish I see here is another matter, it's just a sign of immaturity and laziness.
