Who here are annoyed by the single smilie posts?

OKay, I have to complain again, but I guess this is a valid complaint.

A few posters here.......not naming any names.....seem to have been obsessed with posting single or just plain smilies posts on the board all the time. Personally in the beginning, okay, they were not that much of a disturbance. But now it has gotten to a point where it is getting extremely annoying.

Anyone with me?

Too fucking annoying for words.

Yes, they are getting a tiny bit annoying.

Are you referring to D***** and J***** and h****_******? ;)

D***** or h****_****** must have voted no, eh? ;)

Darkheart

Do you know who J***** is?

I'll give you some hints. That's his name on WTAworld but on ATPworld he is Z********. His avatar is JCF and his flag is Swiss. He's a Martina fan. ;)

Most of his posts on WTAworld are :rolleyes:.

.....But I can see a smartass m**** who would think its great... :o

Darkheart
10-01-2002, 04:14 AM
Are you sure that's not him? Then who is Z******** on ATPworld because it sure sounds like him?

Poe
10-01-2002, 04:15 AM
i agree... once in a while is ok... but when it becomes excessive from the same posters over and over, then it's a bit much... people check threads they've been posting in for something new to read and all they see is a smiley

on most of the boards i post on , the moderators delete posts like that

(personally i have better things to do :D)

I voted Yes for those who are interested.

Not that i dont like going into a valid thread and seeing that the past 15 posts are smiley's or anything, but sometimes i'm not in the mood.

Raven
10-01-2002, 06:47 AM
Yes they are very annoying. Poe was right in that you go into a thread you like posting in, and all you see is that smiley rubbish from posters that dont even post there and have nothing to add....and as dh said, people have to fill their post count up somehow :rolleyes:

kiwi_boy
10-01-2002, 09:30 AM
i gotta say that it can be a bit annoying,cause when you just want to read other peoples posts ,ones not realy interseted in looking at :):):):):)......unless they are relevant. if ya really dont have anything valid to say maybe ya should hold your typing,but other wise i think it important to hear everyones veiws!:)

*~ The Leopard ~*
10-01-2002, 09:46 AM
Hahaha, mea culpa to some extent. I'm gonna vote yes, coz they can get a bit annoying I suppose, taken to extremes.

But some of you guys should lighten up, it's just a bit of fun.

Julie
10-01-2002, 10:18 AM
well hopefully they will stop or decrease in volume now :D:D:D

Thanks for starting this thread, Allie :D I have the same feeling as you... I hope people who did that realize that their habits are so annoying.... I don't mind a single :wavey: or :) , but :rolleyes:, it's just a little disrespect to other people :mad:

Btw, I can't figure out the name you're talking about... I know J***** or Z********, and h****_p*****, but not the other one... Any clues???

Angele
10-01-2002, 11:34 AM
Once in a while it's ok... like sometimes there are threads that can't be answered any better than by a single :rolleyes: or something... but when some people go overboard, it gets annoying :fiery:

I HATE IT

almost all the time I check non-tennis....the last poster is almost always D***** or H****-******.... most threads end with smileyconversations...a bounce...two bounces...a smile..more bounces...

they should start an own smileythread then

10-01-2002, 12:33 PM
Are you talking about Daniel and Harry Potter?

You guys..don't be afraid to name the culprits! aha! If i was an admin here, i'd punish them disabling their smileys features! (yeah i'm mean like that).

Marri
10-01-2002, 12:35 PM

don't exaggerate lil girl.... :rolleyes: we didn't say that you couldn't use the smiles - just don't use them all over the place without any purpose.

harry_potter
10-01-2002, 01:21 PM
beware, you just used the "disrespectful" smiley.

Marri
10-01-2002, 01:22 PM
in this case - it was deserved to be used.

harry_potter, the Z person is Zvonareva, also known as Jordan (the J person).

I think Alexis has a point, but don't worry too much, just tone it down a bit.

Hey Marri, I don't know you but any friend of Alexis is a friend of mine. It strikes me that harry_potter, Jordan and Daniel are not just all very young...... they're also **nice people**. There are some genuinely *cough* *cough* mean people on the board. Let's not be too hard on these 3; they're just having a bit of fun.

:angel:

Marri
10-01-2002, 01:30 PM
:angel: you are right there. i don't agree with everything... but since i don't know Harry_potter i wont say anything.
i really don't care about the J person:D and i have my reasons.

i did say that harry didn't had to give up the smilies... ;)

Harry Potter, i dont even know you, untill this thread i havent even seen one of your posts that is not a smiley.
It doesnt mean that you should use smileys at all, just cut down, & try to say at least one full sentence every post... Please... Cuz it was pretty annoying.

If this board was decently moderated, then the people responsible for these needless smilies would be banned, which they should be. It ruins the enjoyment for many people on the board, is tiresome, and I mean come on, there's a world out there for goodness sake, if your pleasure in life is to spend hours posting smilies on a message board, you don't have much of a life. Now that may sound harsh, but the truth indeed hurts.

And posting with a "rolleyes" smilie or whetever it is is just a witless response, usually/always from witless people.

Good day

Sorry guys, but I agree with Joey; please, give it a rest!

Sometimes you log on, and the last post on every single thread on the page is by the same person and its just a smiley to increase their post count; it puts you off even going into the thread.

From your behaviour here, I can tell that you can't accept people's critics on you. We don't say that you guys can't use any smileys, just limit them.

ur right, that is my fav. smiley. to tell the truth though, i can't see what is so disrespectful about the "rolleyes" smiley. for me, i interprete (sp?) it as "really" or "seriously" said with sarcasm, nothing "disrespectful" about that!

ur right about the first part, I HATE CRITICISM! it's just that i can't do anything about it except defend myself and my intentions (eg. accusations about my post count)
i know that nobody said that we couldn't use smilies (except for someone who said we should be banned for the overuse of smilies - seriously...)

Mrs. B, I like the frog, too! :)

And Daniel, remember you can use all the smilies you want, as long as you post words, too.
Oh, wait, you're doing that already :)

No hard feeling, Harry Potter :D Hopefully you'll take my opinion as an advice and not critic :) I believe you're not doing it to increase your post counts, it's just you like that smiley so much that you can resist to post it all the time :D
