The only time that I use quick reply is if I don't want smilies or text manipulation, so that's a 'no' vote for me.

I use the quick reply box for all my posts. I'm using it now. I was actually just wondering If I was the only one who types smilies manually. :bugeye: :biggrin:

:smile: :smile: Yep, :buggrin: is my favorite! :-p

I manually type them in whether I'm in quick reply or advanced; it's just faster, especially when the smilies move around and I would have to hunt for the one I want in their new order. It doesn't stop me from noticing when they move though.

That's good to know and it could turn out to be really handy,if the US ever enter a shortage of quick replies,like the ones in Finland.
