While we're on the subject of emoticons, I think it would be nice to have a ":P" that wasn't smiling. Personally, I don't like using that one in jest.

The new ":P" is smiling too much, yes. The old ":P" had too less tongue, on Mummy's it even is used as ":)"

Okay, it looked like no one really liked the yahoo emoticons so well, but they did like the variety offered by them. I've gone to some trouble to add some icons other than the yahoo ones that offer a bit more variety than we had before. Let me know what you think now please? I believe I've made it so you can change your votes if you voted already. :)

Yay, the new new ones are a lot better! Especially the new tongue :p

But with some you must be a bit careful. They might result in a new smiley-spam wave, e.g. these: :wow!: :stupid:
I don't wanna say they would be useless or something, just might happen that they get a bit abused.

:danger: isn't this one from old Zelda games? Those skeletons which jump around and/or throw bones after you?

The forum is set so that you can't use any more than six emoticons in one post, so I doubt that we'll have smiley spam.

The tongue guy :p is from the old Docking Station forums, (from before Creature Labs closed their doors) as are: :!: :?: :idea: :arrow: :gross: :note: :down: and :up:

The Legend of Zelda Icons are: :danger: :chicken: :run: and :smash:

They aren't pink, they are an orange tinted gradient which seems to be close to what could be called Crayola Crayon's Peach. I made all the "peach" colored smiles myself many years ago.

In addition, Grendel Man and papriko got their :P Razz tongue smile. I also brought back the :twisted:
and added :evil: which were also from the Docking Station forums, but I forgot to mention them in the above post.

All are by me except the first one and last one. Those are by norngirl. I'm willing to revamp them a bit if anyone wants to use them.


They are cute! :) Could you go ahead and get them for us? I can see about adding them. Thanks, Emzie!

The fish is Danikat's pet fish :fish: Phlishy, and it's staying.

Changed!

Also, I wasn't really complaining about the fish, I just didn't get it. But now I do. And again... Fish is better than dancing fruit. ;)

I like these a lot, they're small and unintrusive and remind me of my early forum days. :p

Did you turn that off for this topic or why could I use 12 emoticons in one of my previous posts in this topic?

No, I set the whole forum to only allow you to post six now. I was checking the forum settings while trying to find the idle log-off error, and I noticed while checking the settings that the forum had allowed twenty emoticons per post. That seemed rather... excessive, so I dialed the number down to six. :p Any posts made previous will still display properly, but you cannot now post more than six without the forum warning you to remove some down to six. As for my post having more, well... I am an admin, and so get certain priviledges. 8) The forum still warns me if I post more than six though, so I am not like to abuse it. I just did this time for ease of posting the changes.

Will you still be able to use the emoticons I made if they are gif or png? I have no idea how to make them actual emoticons.

These emoticons are .gif's too, so I'm sure she can plop yours in there. There's really not much to them. ;)

Yeah, the funny thing about emoticons is that they aren't really icons. :p

Here's the .gifs, just tell me if there are any problems. I was going to edit them, but I no longer have Photoshop and I'm having a had time getting used to GIMP!


[edited by TreeSprite] I've got them Emzie! Thanks!

The Norn and Ettin emoticons have been added to the forum. You can view/use them by clicking the View More Smilies link under the smilies to the right of the posting window on each posting page.

I like the the old smilies more than the Yahoo ones, but the raindrops shape was a bit weird. That's why I prefer the Kolobok style smilies. They're modern and they do the job good as emotes. :-)

Also, the topic activity icons are a bit confusing. (The eggs)
