Add smileys support ?
I was thinking it would be cool to replace some common signs by smileys in posts and comments. It's an easy thing to implement and it can add some coolness to the UI. Don't you think ?

Should we implement graphic smileys in chat, posts and comments with possibility to disable auto-transform text to graphic smileys ? Closed Tue 21 Oct 2014 6:29PM
Currently, the Jappix chat automaticly transform text smileys to graphic smileys. Should we keep this feature and extend it to posts and comments with the possibility to disable the automatic transform to graphic smileys ?

I don't want to see graphic smileys. If I turn them off and their token-code is not ascii-readable as the same emotion, that would be a big no-go for readability. And people will start wishing for other kinds of smileys. So: No.

Absolutely. This NIMBY attitude about smileys is startling. Nearly every socially connected application web or otherwise supports smileys. There must be a way to turn them off, I think that is fair, but to ban them outright is ridiculous.

I lean slightly in the direction of sure, let's have smileys. But the way it's implemented will determine how much of a nuisance they are, so I can't really vote Yes until I see a more detailed implementation strategy.

Sorry, now that I read the proposal I don't even have to comment on the issue. This is NOT a proposal. It doesn't contain a clear statement that one can agree to or not agree to, instead it's phrased as question.

Smileys have been the done since IRC and possibly even before that. The first hello world might have been the smiley. Graphical smiley which convert to normal ASCII smileys and vice-versa would be good.

Don't care myself really - as long as ALL graphical smileys can be disabled by a user then whatever :) Any implementation without a possibility to disable showing smileys I would block as strongly as one can :P

Given that this issue is so contentious, we probably should hold off on this until we've ironed out the issues a bit more. IMO, development with Jappix should move forward with the smilies left in. Design issues can be fixed later.

Just a personal note: I don't like emoticons at all. Sentences spiked with emoticons take me longer to read them correctly and sometimes I still won't understand what they mean. I'd be happy not to support emoticons that much in Diaspora.

You can do smilies in text. I think it is logical to represent them graphically. Also, phones can type unicode emoticons but right now I think diaspora filters them out.

I realize my proposition was really not clear. I will open another to clarify things.
