Some kind of doll?
Is the mouth shape relatively permanent (as in, carved into the face of a wooden doll)?

Smileys?
Good one (: Still, in case it is not smileys...

Are computers relevant?
Does one watch the "simulated humans" on a screen?
Can one make such simulated humans oneself?

Is a smiley flu rampant currently?
Is the LTPF relevant as the arena where they're all going to be miserable?

Is a smiley flu rampant currently? Not as far as I'm aware, although there do seem to be fewer of them out and about...

But you expect a change in the ratio between the number of sad and happy smileys, so that there will be more sad ones?
On the web in general?
At your workplace?
Somewhere else?

At your workplace? No
Somewhere else? Yes - and bear in mind it will only happen if it catches on

So, you see smileys on your screen, and under certain conditions, they will all be sad?
Only those on your screen?
Or someone else's too?
On everyone's?
Will the smileys be typed by a person?
Automatically generated by software?
Will the smileys actually be of several types, but rendered as sad ones on your PC?
Is a specific piece of software relevant?

Will the smileys be typed No by a person? Yes - if 'typed' is ignored
Automatically generated by software? No
Will the smileys actually be of several types, but rendered as sad ones on your PC? This is the right idea but the PC stuff is wrong
Is a specific piece of software relevant? No

You did say computers are relevant, and that one watches the smileys on a screen, didn't you?

Are they drawn somewhere?
Shown on a board, electronic or otherwise?
Do you ever see them?
At home? At work? Outdoors? Indoors?

well, it's already common practice in some situations - i.e. computers. As far as I know it isn't done in the new situation, which has nothing to do with computers

Are they drawn somewhere? No
Shown on a board, electronic or otherwise? No
Do you ever see them? No - good question
At home? At work? Outdoors? Indoors? More likely to be at work, outdoors more common than in I think

The use of 'smileys' in computer communication is common. :) If it caught on in a certain area (unrelated to computers) 'they would all be miserable'

In this other situation, are they intentionally smileys? or just punctuation marks that happen to end up forming smileys? or some other shape, unrelated to punctuation?

Well as far as I'm aware they haven't caught on. But if they did, I imagine people would intentionally form smileys
or some other shape, unrelated to punctuation?

Would the non-computer smileys then be created exclusively by unhappy people?

So, would the smileys be found on paper?
On walls?
On some manufactured items?
Would they be drawn by hand?
Written by a printer?
Be a kind of sticker?

Be a kind of sticker? They can be transcribed into another form, in which case they could be written by hand or printer, however in their most useful form none of the above would apply

Hint: you could almost describe it as another language

Am I, to the best of your judgement, likely to have seen one or more of these?
Will they be written/printed/drawn on some kind of solid material?
Seen on a screen?
Or other volatile medium?
Seen in nature?
Could I make one of these if I wanted to?
Do you find it likely that I have done so?

Will they be written/printed/drawn on some kind of solid material?
Seen on a screen?
Or other volatile medium?
Seen in nature?
As in my last post, when 'transcribed' they are likely to be found anywhere the written word is likely to be found. They are not to be seen by nature, unless by coincidence and interpreted as such
Could I make one of these if I wanted to? Yes, very easily
Do you find it likely that I have done so? Well, unknowingly you will have done so. Knowingly, I would imagine most children (and some adults) will have out of interest. Some adults do this anyway as their job

I think my answers may be misleading slightly. But I don't know what to do about it :)
