    on a lot of sites, the ; ) smiley is just a wink. Here it blows a kiss too. ;) Can't stand that.... So no wink for me anymore.. And that was pretty much the only smiley I used....

    There are two wink smilies. The one that doesn't blow a kiss is just a static wink and smile.

    This guy. :wink5:

    What is the key sequence for that one...

    I just type the ; and the ) and get the blow a kiss one. I never select a wink from a smiley template. I see the other one as "wink5" on the drop down.... Any chance to get the wink5 as put in for the standard key combo?

    I hate the popcorn smiley. Not in itself but way people often post with it as the only content. Actually I hate posts that contain only a smiley. If the post is only a LOL or Thumbs Up smiley, it's annoying but at least the writer seems to be expressing something. A post with only a popcorn smiley is pure noise and bumps a thread with no contribution.

    Now somebody's going to do it in this thread because I said it.

    I don't disagree. The single post of the popcorn smile is not my thing. It's even worse when there are 3-4 posts in row that all have nothing but the popcorn bucket. However, the popcorn will stay as it popular even though I broke a tooth eating popcorn back in Dec that then festered and turned into a massive bit of emergency oral surgery costing me 4 teeth and thousands of dollars.

    I want a chugging-a-beer smiley. I think I have never used the popcorn smiley, even on the sewing site.
