Boss, I already said before that I can't actually install a smilies pack to add new smilies. There's some weird backend install thing I haven't got access to do :lol:

I like what Eras has so far; I know a lot of us groan about the machinegun smilies, but a couple of wacky ones can't hurt. I reaaaally like that facepalm one posted earlier, too XD

Oh god. I know they might not be badin General or the WA forums, but in II gun smileys are just... ugh... A Bad Idea(TM). Devil smileys kinda stink there too, but they haven't reached the level that the gun smileys on the jolt boards did.

And yeah, I like the first facepalm too.

I'm of the view smily use should be kept minimal. We need conventional smilies, to represent a conventional range of emoticons, like :D and ;) and :( and so forth, but let's not overdo it with giant animated smily monsters.

Please, no gun smilies. That's all I ask. That and I need one wielding a book. It would help in modding. ;)

Uploaded for your convenience, Reppy (Posting -> Smilies -> Add Multiple Smilies). Edit that to your heart's content.

I didn't upload any gun smilies, though, because I hate them.

There we go... I left some of the old ones that we don't have replacement versions of (yet?) and played around with the display order :p

Very nice. These look more like real smilies, compared to the older ones. :hug:
