Question Since When were Smilies Emojis?

I've been noticing a bit of sacrilege going around online. People keep referring to smilies as emojis. When the fuck did this happen? Who is responsible for this outrage?

It's smilies motherfuckers! :powerpoke:

I do not have emojis enabled on the browser I usually use, so whenever someone posts one, I just assume they're stupid.

Smilies are emoticons, and "emote" is an acceptable abbreviation.

Emojis is an imagined plural of the word emoji which mean e-moji, electronic pictures.

The peasants are easily confused.

While apparently it is literally just "picture character" in Japanese, and not technically related to the word "emotion", I think part of the reason emoji has caught on in English is that it sounds kinda like emotion.

And before we were using emoticon.

But you know, since not all the smileys are smiling, isn't smiley a bit of a misnomer?

Could your traditional monochrome green monitor render them if they were not disabled?

No, they are all smiling on the inside as being used in communication brings joy to their tiny pixelated hearts.

I'm mad about it too, tbh. It's like, what? Just because smartphones started using those stupid things, the originals now get ignored at best, lumped in with them at worst? I stand, and will always stand, with the pixel art smilies. If you didn't make it one dot a time, you can get the fuck right of my face with that shit. Speaking of which, this is how you do poo: :shit:. God I hate them so much.

I keep asking you to make the horde available for smart phones. I'm sure if you did that it would be so popular it would single-handedly bring smiley back into regular usage.

Frankly most smart phone smilies look like hairy, infected anus. I much prefer the pixel art generated smilies that are here on this site and DeviantArt. They have no character at all, I say. I do wish DiscoMonkey was added to the horde, though.

Exactly. Moreover, the pixel art involved in making traditional smilies is an art form all on its own. Seriously, when you look at some of the more impressive pieces, you begin to realize that they're labors of love on the part of the artists. The disgusting smilies you see on most smart phones are a pale reflection of the real thing.
