I don't know if this is the right place to put it, but it need to be addressed to before these forums turn into Star Wars Galaxies forum over at the Station - and any other forum boards for that matter.

As the title indicate, I'm gonna bring up the subject of smilies being used in posts.

Now, many here are good at using smilies, however, some of you are not. This creates tension for some people since the lack of smilies generally means you are dead seriouse, thus fueling a potentional flamewar which could have been avoided.

Now, I've been here for some time now, and it has all been peacefull, and everyone have had a jokingly attitude towards eachother, mainly because of the use of smilies. I do not want to see this change, nor does any of the long time posters here want to either, I am sure. However, I realize as we approach the release date, then certain 'undesirable' elements most likely are going to find their way in here and start to mess up these boards. But until that time, we can make an effort to refrain from "attacking" people for the smallest thing, but most importantly make sure that your joke are perceived as one.

There have already been mistakes because people either don't use the smilies, or they simply forget (I don't know) - the most recently involving Koffin, who forgot/didn't use smilies, and Gaalgoth, who perceived it as a dead seriouse post. In addition, Koffin has a somewhat low postcount. Yes, Koffin, a low postcount has nothing to do with your capability to read, but that's not the point. It has more to do with that you have not contributed many posts so we get to know you better. Thus posts like that can be misunderstood quite easily.

My point is, use smilies. They are there for more reasons than for just pure fun.
:D ;) :p :)

True. Flaming wars and other forms of harassments are boring, and something I would rather live without.

Best way is to keep up a sense of humour. And to get to know each other. And to kill all hippies.

Gaarni is right.. just because Moderators and Admins doesnt post here... it doesnt mean they dont watch us.. so if yoy start a flame war here. you will likely be warned and eventualy banned from the forums..

ill post some rules later on + this from Gaarni.. and make it a sticky on these and the offtopic forum..

Yeah, cause if I think you're bashing on my shiznit and I kill you but you didn't use smilies it's your own fault.

05-15-2002, 08:10 PM
I disagree! :p

However, the "you did not use a smiley, now I'll flame your ass" attitude won't help. If people bugs you, ignore them. As most people will. Or tell a moderator, and THEY'LL fry their asses. But it's their job, not yours.

(yes, I have some moderator experience. And we do like it if people let the moderators do their bizznizz unhindered. And yes, our kind likes the smell of bothersome posters, roasting on a slow fire ;) <-- there, I used the smiley)

- It's alright. But don't ya start any more trouble in MY part of town, or I'll have to bring you down to the station and lock you up over the night, and we don't want that, aight?

It's because I am so used to solve conflicts that I am thinking of playing a similar role ingame ;)

Yeah, but that was a missunderstanding, remember? :p
Don't get me wrong, I totally understand why you "lost" it there.
And don't forget FBW. U had a nasty fight with him too. :D hehe

But lets not rip up in old and forgotten subjects. :)

Good idea, Wraith. With all the new people that have come here lately and more to come, that's not a bad idea.:)

Ya'll suck. This forum sucks. SWGalaxies sucks. :p ;) :cool: :)

Ah, I don't think there's enough smilies in the world to cover that.
