Emoticon on questions or answers

Often users ask to use emoticon and also to have the possibility to implement the types of emoticon that can use.

In the editor i do not see a section to insert or to use.

Is not a REALLY REALLY important thing but can be confortable for users can have this feature that they have every day

Yes this is a important feature request for certain kind of Sites. (we need others detailed thoughts on this). And So, Let's keep this thread for others opinions on the same.

IMHO - too much emoticons will spoil the look and value for the community slowly. It might be good for some askbot sites - around FUN, Gaming and Opinionated discussions(phpBB and other numerous Bulletin Boards). But for QnA's its not a very good idea.

Anyway I'm working on Editors specifically now - (emoticons/smileys features, UNDO-REDO are there on my Todo-list).

Sure that they must not be too much but for specific sites and users can be good to have.

Also when it reach some karma could be an ability on more only for some users.
