Hi!~ I know that the maximum number of emoticons/ smileys in a single post is 3 but have you ever gone beyond that? I find more often than not, I'd get the red message below as I've exceeded 3? Sometime after deleting 1 or 2 I still get that message, HahaIt means that I've actually used 4 to 5 in one post. I think it usually happens when I'm so excited typing away & enjoying myself. Have you experienced that or do you experience that just as often as me? Haha

Hi! I just recently got to the 200 mark. I was so excited that I finally earned the use of the emoticons that I ended up putting several in my post. I hit send and got the red warning. I have done it on accident a couple times since. I thought it was weird that we are only able to express ourselves 3 times in each post, but I was thinking that maybe if you put too many it might mess up their calculations for long posts. Sometimes when I realize I have too many emoticons it makes me to pick which ones I have to delete. But, it does make me that I can use at least a few.

Oh ok, so I did remember correct it's the 200 mark. And you get to use cut+paste when you've reached 500. Hmmm, post calculation - that didn't occur to me that it might affect the earningsYeah, it's kind of frustrating that you've gotta delete a few when you use too many but like you said - be thankful at least we can still use 3? Haha

Hello zweeb82! I sometimes got a message that I am not allowed to have more than 3 emoticons. The first time I received it was last year and that I was really curious why I my message haven't sent yet. Then I read below in red color that I have more than 3 emoticons and so I have to erase some of them. I really had a hard time choosing which emoticons to erase because all the emoticons there are relevant to me.

Yeah!~ When sometimes I delete one & the message still pops up, that means I have more than 4. Sometimes 6? Those times it feels more like Big Brother spanking than tapping on shoulder to me. HAhaah

Oh hell yeah, it happened to me a lot when the emoticons were first introduced to mylot. In the other forum that I frequent, the limit is 8. So I go so used to 8 that I kept forgetting that I am in mylot when I am posting. Now, I am more cautious when I use my emoticons when posting long replies or discussions. 3 is too little for a social forum. So it is precious with each post!

Yeah, I must agree 3 is really too littleWell, not really complaining though - at least I get to use them & not like those who have less than 200 posts. We were there once & is was quite frustrating actually to think back, and now we can laugh about it, haha

Yes, I do agree with you on that. Sometimes I wonder whether it's worth my time to be on here. I can strong say YES if I have a great network built here in myLot, other than that I'm not sure how long I can stay in here, haha

I don't think I do. But, to be honest, I have never stopped to count. I can say never gotten the Halt message though.

Well, I only put at least 1 emoticons in my post. I sometimes go to three but usually on rare occasions. It does not mean however that I am not emotional or I post without much thought or emotions on my reply. I just find it okay to just use one.

hello there, yes, in the beginning when i didn't know that the maximum limit for emoticons is three here,i did get a red message alert. .........It happened two or three more times before i got used to it....and i i count my smileys while typing....i usually don't use more than three....but i like using smileys frequently....so, i post 3 in almost all my posts. by the way, i thing "three" is very less....i think mylot should raise this limit. happy mylotting.....and have a nice day..

You can't use any myLot emoticons at the moment as you haven't reached your 200th post. I think it's 200th as 500th post you can use the cut + paste function!~ But then, you can always use the conventional keyboard one like I love this one :Þ Haha

I usually dont tend to use a lot of smileys/emtions on my disscussions and responses. I find that if the forum I am using doesnt hide them away before I ask to use them, I will use maybe one or two. But if they are hidden away on the post screen, I tend not to bother.

I can really tell that you're fond of using emoticons. It never happened to me because I rarely use emoticons here. Maybe I use it when I want someone to feel good or something but most of my posts doesn't have one. I guess it's a hassle for me..

Actually I haven't really counted or noticed how many I really use. But I think it's about 2 only. I tend to type away and then forget about the myLot code on the left side for us to put emos in the respond. I think I use the laugh out loud emoticons the most.
