I created some emoticon templates for use in comments on iCarly and Victorious Wikis here.

The problem is they aren't used very often because you have to put the braces around them, and you have to remember the names of the templates.

So I was wondering if people in the Wikia community would be interested in being able to use emoticons by simply typing :), :D, :P, etc. It would have to be decided by Wikia Staff, but I would like to know if anyone else thinks this is a good idea.
