    All those in favor please drop a message... I think we do.... Expressions help in showing excitement and establishing a more proper connection,

    Also... I agree with the fact that  the power of words is mightier and greater but just for the fun of it..

    Hubpages authorities.... please listen to me big_smile

      Great idea and addition to ratings. What was it I heard? Oh yes, "A picture is worth a thousand words." Wish I had said that.

    I always add a smiley smile at the end of a comment. Just like an exclamation mark shows excitement, a smiley shows a happy emotion. To me it shows a little added appreciation for someone that has commented on my hub.

      Doesn't it! We could add more pleasant expressions with active smileys like in the forums big_smile

    I think they are fun, seem to make things a bit more personal, and add a little extra punch to one's comment. smile

    The "smiley" doesn't need to be in graphic form. Most people know what they look like by now, except for the people who are newest to the Internet itself.

    Personally, I don't think it matters.

      rahul0324posted 4 years ago in reply to this

      for the expressions at least my friend..... for that little personal touch..

      no offence smile

        And as I said, to me it doesn't matter. I don't need to see the graphics to know what it means. I know what it means.

        Continuing to add features to HubPages which are not needed, might actually drive HubPages to charging to use it's Platform.

        Do you want to pay to use HubPages? It's free right now.

        I tend to use the smile to let a person know my comment is meant to be funny so they don't take offense. Some people will take something literal and miss the humor.

    Emoticons are great for forums, but I would prefer to not have them on my hubs. If HP did add something like this, I hope they would add an opt-out to our hubs also. I don't see where they would benefit the hubs. I would hate to delete comments just because of emoticons.
    That is my opinion.

    I think it would be great to have smilies added to the comment box.  smile

    Thank you all for chiming in. Agree with Michael that if we do it, we would need to make a control to allow authors to opt out who don't want it on their Hubs. That does complicate the development somewhat. :-O

    However, I will track this suggestion and see when/if we can work it in to our development plans.

    +    I like the kind we make ourselves, no yellow smileys on hubs, please.

    I put my own smileys in but they're not as noticeable smile

    Hey, I just noticed mine turned into a smiley!

    I think using ": )" on the hub is enough and not as graphic. The actual smiley face will make some hubs look unprofessional to me and I know that some hubbers will not want people using it on their hubs so I say give hubbers the option of opting out for individual hubs. For example I have a hub on a very serious subject like "Scarlet fever", I wouldn't want a smiley face in the comments there, but my hub on "how to annoy your boss" is humour so I don't mind having them in the comments there.

    I'm not a fan of graphic emoticons on hubs, so count me in with the group favoring an 'opt-out.'  The text-based ones are enough for me.
