WHAT CATAGORY SHOULD THIS QUIZ BE IN?

I'm not quite sure which category I should use for these quizzes.

Emoticons Little Pictures Made By Letters

An Emoticon is one of those little drawings you can make by using the keys on your typewriter or computer keyboard. The name comes from merging 'emotion' with 'icon,' emot-i-con.

The best known example is the smiley face.



I have put one in each of the following, because none of them seemed really right:
Technology - Internet
General Trivia - Misc.
General Trivia - Humor
The Arts - Art

Word Play?

I'd appreciate some suggestions....

No, Felix, that is not an acceptable answer.

That is quite a conundrum.

I think it fits into both Tech-Internet and General Trivia.

Just don't put it into History or Trivia Experts Only so it stays on the board longer. >

HTH! :D

I recently made on of those quizzes (What do those things mean?). I put it into Technology/Internet, since we use them online.

Sounds like Tech/Internet.
If you would like to see the origin of the smiley emoticon check this page from a BBS log from 1982.

You have to scan through some junk to get to it, but the whole thing is worth reading to get the gist of it.

Doubling also can mean emphasis?

I did a few quizzes on emticons that I thought were pretty good but for some reason people scored pretty low on them. Hence the low ratings.
I'm pretty sure I put them in the tech category though.
Better luck to you!

Thanks, I'll move them over to Technology-Internet.

Sorry, they are all clumped up there.
