Stephen; this also brings up another topic concerning the use of emoticons. We had them on the older CoaHO; but their use has evolved to the point of large numbers of them with hardly any dialogue. Of course there are going to be times when subtle nuances of expression might be desirable to gain a finer line of description or effect. But figuring out what usage is appropriate in achieving the forum’s objective of discourse over large Facebook piles of emojis instead of engagement I think could pose a possible problem. We used them “shamelessly” at times instead of actually discussion back then; but perhaps a word of caution from the guidelines about their usage now in this different format might be helpful. (Just a thought since everything is in it’s early stages of development.)
