As long as they aren't too big, I support it. I don't want them stretching the lines. Or at least not much.

This is the smallest size he made: Image
I guess they could be smaller but I wouldn't push it any further than that.
In general when I use them, I just skip a line anyway to avoid stretching it.

Ambivalent=No particular feeling one way or the other, basically abstaining from the vote (of course, you could also do that by not voting.)

And Diss, I see this poll expires tomorrow. Are you perhaps thinking that this thread could host new polls every once and a while?

a simple explanation would be:
Ambivalent = both positive and negative
Neutral = neither positive nor negative
they are not interchangeable



you realise if we were to do this we'd have to, you know, ask him first. you can't really decide this without him, silly

i also noted you used the wrong one out of ambivalent/neutral

unless you wanted people to say "there are some good things about using the smilies, but there are also some bad things"

No, I meant ambivalent. I considered including an option for "neutral" or "other" but left it out because then we'd not have the acronym ANY.

...

I'm probably a little bonkers.

you could really have messed with people by having Ambivalent, Neutral and Yes. Then it's ANY, and then people can't say no.



but then i probably would have changed the poll

I voted no, because I think the emoticons would be waaaay overused, and it's get annoying one day.

Honestly, I'd be happy if the old smilies weren't replaced. I think the old ones have a nice quality. I chose 'no' before thinking it through though. So, if the old ones aren't replaced, replace 1 'no' as a 'yes' please.

I'm on a dial-up connection you guys. :/ These smilies are already making my forum pages slow to load. In fact, I need to disable them on my control panel when I get the chance.

Dial-up and images (large or small) are not a good combination. :|

Poll Results

  • Ambivalent: 25% [ 5 ]
  • No: 30% [ 6 ]
  • Yes: 45% [ 9 ]
  • Total Votes : 20

Thanks for your input, everyone. If implemented, the Housepets! emoticons would supplement, not replace, the default ones. A "more smilies" link would be created in your posting form beneath the last row of defaults. Clicking this link would create a pop-up window containing the new icons.

I encourage everyone to keep brainstorming ideas and offering feedback so that our community will continue to grow and excel. (If you're not comfortable openly suggesting something, feel free to PM me.)

Most of the forums have this and I'm sure there's a reason why this one doesn't, but why isn't there a quick reply option? Seems like it could be convenient.

@TH: Nevar! Muahahah--*cough* *ahem*

My bad, but a quick reply option would be somewhat inconvenient...HOWEVER, it does open up a new option: quick chat bans; As in, if you're quick chat banned, then you can't post anything BUT the quick chat options which are available to you. It's useful to control moderation of language and age-restricted comments. An example of this system can be seen in Runescape, where it has worked effectively (no one wants to be permanently or temporarily banned, right?).

When I said this, I wasn't pointing out a problem with the plan, I was asking a technical question
I wanted to know what a quick reply option does, and I still do...

The ones proposed in the poll haven't been implemented (yet?) I don't think. To use them anyway, you have to link them like any other picture.

That's the little thing that shows up next to the URL bar. The main site, for example, has the bone and fish logo.

Agreed.

It could just be the same as the main site's, couldn't it? This seems logical.
Also, Psyke... mmmmmaybe.

Well, it is like a reply form that appears at the bottom of the thread. So you can type your reply there immediately, instead of clicking the reply button THEN type your reply.

If my explanation is unclear, then look at this. This is basically what a quick reply is.

Oh, that's different than what I was thinking. That is way much more convenient, however...

Psst, increase PM inbox size from 350 to 500.

What do you consider an important message? I've been here for two years and some change, I'm a moderator, and I communicate with people via PM fairly frequently. I've emptied my inbox a few times, now, and never held on to a private message.

The box deletes old messages automatically, so clearing it manually isn't too important.

Some forums have a folder for saving messages. Is that a possibility?

As far as a "quick reply" box, I think that's an option from the admin control panel, but there's not really a reason for it. If you're in that much of a hurry, post when you have free time or use the IRC for more nearly instantaneous communication.

Increasing the size of your PM inboxes would take up space on the server and honestly, there's not a clear need that I've seen. I'll look into the other suggestions regarding the private message system.
