What is Woot?
What is this guy saying ?
Are both of these little people confused , one worse than the other?
Is this a wink ? Is this a wince ?
I came in late to the game and I don't know the score.

= sticking his tounge out at you
= this guy is confused to the point his eyes are spinning around.
= this guy sees something wierd, shocking or surprising. Can also be expressed as a "double-take"
= this guy is winking at you, nudge nudge, say no more
= This one is not like the ascii symbol. The picture is like a "ho-hum" or "i tried it but it didn't work"

Here's some others.
= Says phear, but originally was "Ninja" in old IPB versions. He's doing something behind the scenes.
= this is when you see something you don't get. If you try to figure it out, it may lead to

this is "huh" like in "Huh?"
it means that you are perplexed or don't understand what the other is saying
this is "w00t", which can mean just like in "WHAAAAT?" that you understand, but that it is clearly absurd in your view, or simply that you are excited at the idea:
this is "wacko":
it means surprise at a completely unexpected and confusing statement or event
this is "blink", as in:
startled or surprised, but in a minor way than the above
Emoticons are customizable by the board Admin, here on MSFN we have only a few of them, on other boards there may be many, many more, as an example:
"hyper" is the "superlative of "w00t"
Also, the "ph34r/ninja" here on MSFN is "static" while this one is animated:
AFAIK it can mean BOTH "phear" like when you are scared of something, or "ninja" meaning that you are doing something "under the hood".

This will help me get caught up w/ the rest of the world. The emoticon pages I found on search had sort of different meanings for the same emoticon and didn't give me the context or connotation - more like one word definitions. I've bookmarked the free dictionary.
I've seen people use : + ) to indicate a smile rather than generate an emoticon, but in previewing this reply I see it works as code in a post. I get the emoticon rather than the letters unless I use the code brackets. But then everything else I type ends up in code altho I can see the end code bracket [/code] ahead of the rest of my reply. ????
Does msfn prefer we only use those emoticon provided/actually limit the emoticons allowed in posts in this forum? If I type in a code for one you don't have would it work? But would you prefer I didn't? You've got most of the ones I need - rant, embarrassed, confused, really confused, paranoid, shocked and I really like woot. The only one missing is bowing to a replier's wisdom. Some people might find that offensive, I guess. Thumbs up just isn't enough - it doesn't have the gratitude and awe factor. And an old geezer/old lady one would be nice for when I feel really old.
Some others might like to have the rant emoticon w/ the off lever to give me a gentle hint.
Since I'm new to emoticons I do want to use too many, but I've been holding myself back - until this post. I'll be good now. Well, I plan to be good now.

I switched off 'Enable animated images' in my Opera Browser and you fell from the sky!
I much prefer something that takes less brain power to operate.
Much more at this site http://www.rofl.name/a/
