Default :p

On nearly all forums, :P triggers a smiley face with a tongue.
On these forums, :p triggers it, while :P does nothing.


For those of you who stalk me, you've probably noticed some of my posts containing :P without the actual graphic.

This is a petition! Let me use my capital P!

btw, the smileys in the poll = :p, current one

Always thought about that too. I'm used to it now but I voted both. Even though you are pretty cute.

Wont happen. As this would require direct access to the Server which only Larry has and he has much more on his mind to worry about other than what Icon is triggered with what Typing reference.

TBH just get rid of them. I mean seriously is it that important to see a small smiliey face with its tongue hanging out?

that is why i very rarely use them unless i have to get across that i am only joking.

I quite like it as it is, cos the :P looks like the msn one, whereas is more of a mocking smiley
