Oh dear I had no idea that smileys where taken off as a response,makes me look awful ,I normally put a smiley to let my friends know I have read their comments not always possible to answer everyone ,just don't think that I have a habit of ignoring my friends.I will always be carful how I word my comments from now on.I tend to type how I talk.I just want everyone to know that I appreciate every comment and read everyone of them.

I came across discussions asking if I had been taken off of my lot because of a comment I made to a really nice young guy I had been chatting to ,bless him.Then it transpires that using smiley faces for a recognition of a comment was taken away as well.I get the impression someon is making things awkward for me,so I shall just ignore them and carry on chatting but mark what I say.

I shall continue with words instead of smileys not that I put a single one down very ofter,just came across someone who was asking if I had been taken off mylot as I had answered quite a long running banter with a smiley,he and a comment about how nice he was,maybe my lot thought I was getting to friendly with him.I am just a middleaged lady haveing a chat.No more no less.

I saw that had happened to you when I was trying to find out what happened for a user who had responded there. MyLot ask us to post quality. A smilie in every box as a comment is not considered quality and does nothing to further the discussion therefore they are deleted by admins. You can go back and comment from scratch there now

I'm not sure I understand what you are talking about but I'm sure it makes perfect sense somehow.

Ah well, now my day is complete. I am always glad to know I can bring a smile to someone's life. Funny though, it's the things I say in all seriousness that amuse others the most.

thank goodness they did do that. it just gripes me when after Ihave worked hard to make a discussion I get a response of a smiley face. get real. I know I always feel cheated when all I 'get is a smiley face, come on surely you could squeeze out a few words to say how you felt about the discussion. it would be so appreciated by the poster.

I have noticed one friend who always comment to my responses with a smiley. After taking my time to come up with a reasonable response and I am frustrated to get a smiley as a reply. When he did that to several of my responses to his discussions while the rest gets his replies, I stopped responding to his discussions. The curbing of using smileys alone as replies or responses is most welcomed. At least it should be followed by some words to effect the use of smileys.

They have been doing it for a long time now. I have often seen smilies removed when they are the only thing that appears as a comment. Whne they are given to an elaborated well thought out response it does feel as though the user did not even bother reading it Effort is rewarded and a single smilie is not effort

When some one only writes a few words as a comment it is hard to answer them so rather than ignore them I have been putting a smiley face,but point taken I will stop this meant no offence.

thats fine. I love putting smiley faces too! Its like an added feature to let them know how you feel. And besides its fun to use. Who can resist of using it? I love mylot's emoticon, its really cool and the graphics are beautifully made. huh, better than the other emoticons i have seen.

But come on, don't use it just as it, or as plain as it was. Put some words in your comments! haha... That tiny thing isn't enough for a response. Okay.

I take it you were just responding with a smilie and nothing else? I know it is tough to comment to everybody but as others have said admin does not take kindly to the use of just smilies and no words. I’ve used them like that before as I reply to ongoing banter I would not use them by themselves. Even a couple of quick words of acknowledgment are better than nothing...

Smileys are there to emphasize on the comments or replies and standing alone does not give it its true worth. I do get frustrated when after writing a long response and the poster only comment with a smiley. By putting some wordings before or after a smiley would make sense to active interactions.

I have to agree with you Zandi! The smilies are fun and can add a lot ot our posts but they are not a substitute for words. When all I receive as a comment is a smilie I do feel that my response or comment was wasted on that particular user It doesn't take much to add a few words too

Hi suzzy, I don't think a smilie is enough to stand as a comment on a response which someone has bothered to write. I sometimes use them to close off a lot of tooing and frooing when I want to try and close the box down though, but thats ususally after several responses from the same person.

I wasn't aware that you weren't able to post just a smiley as a response. Perhaps they are looking to save bandwidth? I automatically assume that someone appreciates my response if they don't reply. I do expect a person to reply to one of my comments occasionally, otherwise I'll quit responding. But so many responses don't require or need a response from the originator of the discussion! What I really enjoy is getting several people involved in one of my responses and having a good back and forth! Don't let you inability to respond with a smiley get you down.

Sometimes it is really difficult to write a comment when there is nothing to answer so I put a smiley in recognition of their effort.

Sometimes when you read back what you have written you just can't believe that you wrote what you read. I have done this, it comes up when I am resolving the responses to my discussions. If you face this with an open mind it can be fun and certainly enlightening. Don't worry to much we are all trying to do our best.

Good morning, suzzy3....I guess I am either one of the lazy ones, OR I don't take the time to navigate the "mylot code" to use these little additives! Truly appreciate the fact that you acknowledge each response, cause sometimes I liken it to having a one-sided conversation....LOL! How is your weather doing....all my "myLot" friends, everywhere are experiencing a truly unusual weather pattern, this fall...we have gone from the biggest drought on record....to the highest rainfall on record! Yikes! Have a great Sunday..and Cheers!
