I've seen quite a few posts on the chat thread and was wondering who else wants more smilies? Like possibly a peanut one?

Woot! Sounds good, but how do we do that?

Petition! I guess if enough people say they want more, the mods will see it and do it...

Except it wouldn't be up to us, it would be up to Rick. We may help moderate the forums, but Rick ultimately makes the decisions about things like that.

well, there was an attempt at this kind of thing here but Rick felt the size would increase the size of the line breaks too much to implement them on site, so they can currently only be used by putting them into an image tag.

and the line break size is an issue, so don't use them too much

The problem with more complex smilies is that they would have to be too big. With the size they have to be, the plain smilies are all there's room for.

Even just a smiley with cat or dog ears?

Users are welcome to remotely host and use emoticons in-line. Having said that, we don't intend to add any more emoticons to the forums, currently. (For one thing, we'd probably break something. x3)

I've actually found several I may start using.

you have them on another site, then copy the URL of the image in the image tags
[img]URL%20goes%20here[/img]

Personally, I use PhotoBucket for hosting silly images and things shared here.

I use imageshack. I used it once to give someone an orange Peanut

it can also host small images like emoticons.

Let's see, how about a ferret? Image
Is that small enough to use inline?

that looks good to me
now try to get him to actually... you know... emote

or is that to say you're currently feeling ferret-y?

I think it means sneaky...

Getting a bit nuts Image <- really bad attempt of a joke
Why nut shrink the images even smaller? Image <- same size as the ferret emoticon
I think most of the facial expressions are nut lost. Image <- characters seem to be distinguishable

There's a bit of extra space between lines, :|
but that also occurs with the normal smileys. ;)

This is a line of text without
smileys. o_O I lied. :p

a few new smilies might not be such a bad idea.

The TwoKinds forums have very nice smilies of the characters, including animated ones. Oh! And there are at least two in which a good deal of the cast does a football match style wave! :P
