It should not be re-entered without careful consideration.

Not a context. Used on three pages, I can't see any reason not just to type out Category:Emoticons on those three pages. Mglovesfun (talk) 21:25, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

It's also not a context template. [[Category:Emoticons]] is a translingual category, not an English one. Mglovesfun (talk) 18:08, 19 December 2009 (UTC)
Delete. Interestingly there is a difference between "Western" and "Eastern" emoticons. As both are used in multiple languages, the entries should Translingual. The category should be Category:mul:Emoticons (with possible E/W subcats). --Bequw¢τ 21:05, 19 December 2009 (UTC)
No it shouldn't, because these are emoticons, not words relating to emoticons. I'd expect Category:fr:Emoticons to give names of specific emoticons. I suppose lolcat should be in this category. Mglovesfun (talk) 20:49, 20 December 2009 (UTC)
Quite right, Category:Translingual emoticons then. --Bequw¢τ 20:16, 21 December 2009 (UTC)
It seem somewhat similar to Category:Verbs and Category:Verbs by language, but emoticons by language sounds silly as they're more like pictograms. Mglovesfun (talk) 00:33, 22 December 2009 (UTC)
Maybe orphan and improve? I can think of places where it could be used, just not the way it is right now. Mglovesfun (talk) 19:23, 1 January 2010 (UTC)
