I would say after, but I never ususally use punctuation after a smiley

I think it simply looks better.

I voted other - I didn't read the punctuation thread but it was 1000000% refering to ppl like me - who follow no rules, have no idea what the rules are and grate on the nerves of those ppl who find punctuation important.
So yeh, I voted other - cos I never thought about it, don't really mind either way and have no idea what the proper thing is.

I post inside the punctuation when i want the emoticon to cover the entire sentence, and outside the punctuation when it isnt' applicable till the sentence is over.
ETA: and apparently there are days when my keyboard simply doesn't register that i told it to insert a specific punctuation mark. *sigh*
