A fascinating topic that i observe in threads across the forum. Is there a correct way to use emoticons, are they part of the sentence previous to them and should they be punctuated thusly, or are they lawless and not bound by full-stops?

A)
QUOTE
I place my emoticon here because i am always grammatically on point. mellow.gif
B)
QUOTE
I place my emoticon here because i am a free spirit pirate.gif

C)
QUOTE
I place my emoticon here because i have swag~

cool.gif



A) is neat and cool. B) is WRONG and messy and C) is the one. Where do you place yours, or do you mix and match depending on the situation? ohmy.gif

I would never put a full stop before an emoticon, it just looks silly to me. The whole point of an emoticon is to either emphasise the point or to imply a certain meaning or intent within the phrasing. To cut it off rather defeats the purpose.

This is precisely (one of the reasons) why I don't like using them. It feels wrong both ways. Not including C because that isn't even a real way.

I always do B. Just makes the most sense to me for some reason, and I've become used to it. I think occasionally I have done C.

B is definitely the way forward, wrong and messy describes me rather well in all things that are supposed to look neat.
