I have seen
@joe, @Artimage, @pinwizj, @DHS, and maybe a couple more members here use what appears to be a smiley called “slightly_smiling”. Examples:
Thanks, everyone, I appreciate the kind words!
@ClevelandPinball, I’ll ping you privately with info…
I’m pretty new to the competitive scene, so I’d love to hear people’s feedback on my thinking.
I can only fit one game in my small NYC apartment, so I chose Spiderman. Here was my thinking.
3rd flipper allows me to practice staging.

Thanks, Greg. Does that mean that nobody’s seeing this emoji? What’s odd is that I don’t even seem to have a “slightly_smiling” option in the emoji list.
I would guess that the emoji list got edited at some point. I’ve certainly never

I don’t like to use emojis myself, but I’m intrigued – how do you guys choose an appropriate one? Are you just picking one by looking at the images, or are you looking at the text to figure out what it’s actually supposed to represent? Just wondering, because “slightlysmiling” seems like a weird thing to use.
It looks like this problem has been solved with the most recent upgrade of Discourse.
I like how the thread title changed.

I also tend to use ascii, but discourse likes converting them.
is just the usual colon-paren smily, it turns out.
