The Unofficial Smilie Dictionary

The closest you'll get to expressing emotion with a keyboard :)

What the hell is a smilie I hear you ask. Well this is covered in another part of this website, but anyway I'll explain again. Tilt your head sideways to the left and look at one of them.. :) Get it? They're used to express different 'tones of voice' and as you'll find, they're quite commonly used on Redbrick and elsewhere.....

Basic Smilies!

   :-)   

Your basic smilie. This smilie is used to inflect a sarcastic or joking statement since we can't hear voice inflection over Unix.

   ;-)   

Winky smilie. User just made a flirtatious and/or sarcastic remark. More of a "don't hit me for what I just said" smilie.

   :-(   

Frowning smilie. User did not like that last statement or is upset or depressed about something.

   :-I   

Indifferent smilie. Better than a Frowning smilie but not quite as good as a happy smilie

   :->

    :->
