Top Ten TSC Emoticon #4
X)

While Zephyr and I were talking about this, he said that he thinks of each emoticon representing sort of a class of emoticons, where X) would stand for other iterations such as XD, and I suppose Zeup's version with xD, or others who use x). And while these other ones are good, there is a reason we chose X) as the one called to represent this illustrious class of emoticons. There is something distinctly TSC in nature to X), at least in my mind. XD you see all over. It is extreme jubilation, finding something hilarious, so much so that you are laughing and cannot keep your eyes open. The X) is a bit more subdued though. It is chill. I am amused, I am smiling, but you were not so funny as to make me laugh.

The use of X) is very widespread too. There are no most common users, as it seems like most people come to use it at some point.

It should also be noted, and celebrated, that X) has gained such a high place at TSC. What this means is we have some pretty witty people around! They're making us laugh and smile! So keep on with your wit everyone, and we will all show our amusement with a chorus of X)s. This could also mean we just have a bunch of people amused with themselves, as most people use it at the end of their own lines, but at least someone thinks you're witty! X) (Yes I amuse myself)

Really? Because I already had the write-up for :o done. But either way, if it is a tie, you have to do one of them first >_>

Top Ten TSC Emoticon #5
:o

The :o has a very specific meaning at TSC that do not go much beyond the four sides of the window in which #soniccenter resides. Outside of that small space, the difference between :O and :o is barely recognizable, if it exists at all. But the TSC eye can see the deeper shades of meaning. An :O is an exclamation, an expression of excitement, while :o is a thoughtful kind of "oh" without saying oh. It is acknowledgement of a statement with mild assent. It can be a question - :o? meaning, keep talking, tell me more. It can be an answer :o. There is nothing more to be said on this. Or it can be a conversation itself.

:o
:o?
:o.

But mostly it is an expression of interest. It is a part of the culture of tsc, this tiny corner of the internet where it has meaning, and we are richer for it.

(It should be noted that #4 and 5 are pretty much a tie, so don't get your panties in a bunch about :o being #5!)

Top Ten TSC Emoticon #6
:3

Yep, that's right :3 is coming in at number 6. Either you love it or hate it, but there is no denying that :3 is a huge part of TSC history and culture. The cute little curvy mouth that no human mouth could ever hope to recreate, the :3 has a distinctly animal look to it (looks almost exactly like a cat mouth to me). And it expresses that feeling of appreciation and joy that is written all over a cat's face when they are purring.

People generally use this emoticon with reckless abandon or avoid it like the plague, because they do not want to give the wrong impression. But this was not always so. It used to be used on occasion just to express a distinct feeling, rather than make a statement about furryism, but the usage of :3 has narrowed as it has increasingly been associated with furryism. We are, after all, a site based around a bunch of furry creatures. In the old days, there were perhaps some who thought TSC was better because it somehow escaped the furry mentality, but perhaps it was really it was all in the closet. In celebration of openness and transparency, Yay for the days of open furries and :3s abounding!

Top Ten TSC Emoticon #8
<_< >_>

Not to be confused with its separate parts, <_< >_> is a highly specialized animal, and is vastly different from its constituent parts <_< and >_>. It is ironic in that it is at the same time sneaky, and blatantly not sneaky. It is not sneaky in that it boldly declares "I am being mischievous!", but just because you declare it to be so does not mean it cannot be occurring also.

It adds a bit of an edge, and should not be over-used, but it definitely adds something that cannot be gained by any other combination of keystrokes. Use it, and use it wisely.

Oct 18 22:12:38 <Zeph> well it's still fun to look at old quotes >_>
Oct 18 22:12:52 <flyby> i guess it could be <_<
Oct 18 22:13:03 <Zeph> in fact I should go and look at old #soniccenter logs to relive the past <_< >_>

Well played.

Top Ten TSC Emoticon #9
:D


We are not an overly smiley bunch at TSC. I remember one day long ago where I tried to convince everyone to replace their :(s with :)s, and it lasted for about an hour, and TSC seemed like such a happy place! Otherwise, you see lots of :)s from FF, and that is about it.

But when we do smile, we like to make it pack a punch. No sissy :)s. It is the real deal. :Ds all the way. A quick look through logs, or just having -ever- been in chat, you will notice that this emoticon is used most by DsS, and hey, as champion of the site, and with such epic skills, being in a community where such skills are so highly appreciated, why should he be anything but happy!

So smile away the day :D. This emoticon is for you! And for everyone else who's happy! :D

O: TOP TEN :O

I've pretty much given up on the idea of the convention, since it sounds like we'd have a whole 2 people showing up. If that is an inaccurate perception, please disabuse me of it (tell me you are definitely coming <_<).

I'm still willing to host a convention, whenever people would want one. I just probably won't be the one pushing for it, but so long as I have a location that would accommodate it, I'd be willing to host people and do the food.

So I'm looking more for availability, if you're free any time I will do it, that would be nice to know, otherwise, I would like to be able to narrow it down a bit. Also Spinny I assume that means that the first week of August is a -bad- time? Though if it's your only vacation time for the summer, it may not be entirely relevant.

Come on people! If no one responds, I'm going to assume you don't want a convention, and I will use my awesome planning skills to do something else!

Edit: >:O!!! (You know who that's for you.)

Convention is still on, though it looks like Rolken will not be in attendance. We are getting closer to times, so let's nail down some dates. Everyone who thinks they might be able to come, please respond with your availability during the summer, and we can hopefully nail down a 4 day window that should be able to accommodate pretty much everyone. So, ready gogo!
