A Guide to Asian Emoticons

You may have noticed when standing next to someone talking in Japanese or Korean in SL a lot of strange facelike symbols mixed in with the Kana.

These are Asian or Eastern Emoticons, they are very different from the western ones as they are read without having to tilt the head. Asian emotes also place much greater emphisis on the eyes rather then the mouth as seen in western emotes.

I thought I would provide a brief guide to the Basic ones you may see in SL (and in some posts here)

d^_^b d-_-b - Listening to Music or Thumbs up

;A; ;w; ;__; ;~; ;m; ;n; ;^; ;o; ;u; ;x; ;v; - Various forms of "Cry"

(^_^) (^-^) (^ ^) (^.^) - Various "Smilies"

(~_^) (^_~) ~.^ ^.~ - Various Winks

(>_<) (>.<) - Ah Crap, Dammit!

(>_>) (¬_¬) - Annoyed

(-_-) ㅎ_ㅎ - Not Amused, upset

(^o^) - Laugh out loud or Singing

(^3^) - Kiss

(^_^') ^_^_^') ^^" ^^^_.^') ^^_^^; ^&^^.^;& ^^^; ^^^7 - Various forms of Nervous or Embarassed

ಠ_ಠ σ_σ - look of disproval

0.o O_o o_O o.o @_@ O_O ಠ_ಠ σ_σ ಠ_ರೃ (*_*) - various Suprise or Disbelief Emotes

^///^ >///< >///> o///o -///- =///= - Blushing or Embarased

Hi Miss Minx. I am so happy you are in SL. I would be happy to send some money to your paypal account for this porn you mentioned.

Regards,
Psyke.

But not exactly horny either as it might be used here. Probably the closest single word we have to describe what the nosebleed is but not exactly right...
