More smilies?
26. Nov 2006 at 03:36
 

All my credit to this forum.. it looks and works really cool!
 
Butt.. i dunno if this has been asked before.. but is it possible there could be more smilies.?
Most smilies are a bit cramped in here .. and there are lot's of cool ones out there..
 
Not a comment, just a perception..

Yes, I don't like to pepper them (smilies) all over the place, but I do use them and I would like a largerassortment, such as a sleepy smile, thunderstorm, or coffee/tea cup that I have on MSN.  That would be nice.  Smiley

I think there's enough smileys, but I wouldn't complain if it was more.

I like this one:  Shocked
 
I'd be perfectly happy if this was the only one.
 
 Shocked Shocked Shocked
 
And this one:  kiss could cause bizarre and disturbing memories of transvestites minus their wigs to resurface. If I had any, that is. It should be removed and buried in a deep hole far, far away.

I would give you a  kiss to console you in your angst, but your gender is a mystery to me.

The laughing gnome is almost certainly all man. At least on week days.
 
Just to put any scurrilous rumours to rest.

Thinks:  undecided
 
There is a place for smileys of the happy variety  Smiley  Grin as a means of reinforcing that something has been said in good spirit  Wink when it could be misinterpreted. So often I have seen misunderstandings arise  Sad between people whose common language is English  Cool but who come from different cultures. What someone from one background finds funny  Grin someone from another place will either find offensive  Shocked or just plain unfunny. Roll Eyes
 
However, as you can see, it's possible to overuse the icons  Roll Eyes and use them as a substitute for actually saying something meaningful.  Angry As someone once said: A word is worth a thousand pixels".  kiss  Grin
 
P.S. I'd have to consult a professor of modern English on this one, but surely the plural of "smiley" is "smileys" as opposed to "smilies"?  Huh We don't speak of "donkies" ... well I don't anyway. lips sealed

I'm not necessarily interested in more smilies, but there are icons I'd find useful:  crossed fingers, heart, four-leaf clover.

Don't forget this one:
 
For the sake of the "Steven is hot" thread, the fainting smiley is absolutely necessary.
