Emoticons or Emojis?

^-^ 😄 What do you guys prefer, emoticons or emojis? Personally... I'll never let go of emoticons >:c (I know that they can be considered the same meaning, but I'm not sure what to call them otherwise so I separated it to emoji and emoticon ^^)

@Ilúvatar .... smart

I feel like emoticons give more versatility over emojis ¯_(ツ)_/¯

But then tish like this happens where I lose my arm.

@Rantious I agree, I also don't like how emojis can look really different depending on what phone someone uses.

@Clain also emojis are limited by some artist's abilities. Emoticons are only limited by your I M A G I N A T I O N

I prefer gifs, but that's just my inner comical person lol

Neither, ASCII kaomoji!
