    we deleted all the smileys because they were terrible, and they were keyed to ordinary text smileys, and a lot of us don't like when the text face we type gets auto-replaced by a smug yellow blob.

    so now the smiley folder is empty except for :mystery: and i think we could have a lot of fun with this.

    seebs, if you'll show me where to host the images, i volunteer to curate the collection. apparently they are archived by url, so they have to be hosted somewhere, and we don't wanna hotlink them from someplace where they might change or vanish.

    and everyone can suggest wee images to use, and i can make them be available. sound cool?

    How wee? Can we draw some if the mood strikes us?

    So, it's a little complicated. The canonical way they are done is that you have an image file which is tiled with smileys, and then a data file which describes them, which are imported. I think there's a tutorial somewhere on making them.

    If people want to submit tiled images to use as smileys, I will totally consider adding them. My proposed rule: All smiley names shall be done as words between pairs of colons, so stuff like :mystery:, not stuff like :).

    This one comes from the late 90s, when my mom was active on forums... it is called the rant smiley, and it is one of my eternal favourites. (Note: I have no idea where it came from originally.)

    Couple worth stealing from mspaf, I think.
    :mspa:, which gets a lot of use there as a sarcasm marker [​IMG]
    and then there's :docshake:, which every forum worth its salt needs.[​IMG]

    e. I also think we need some sort of :abjecthorror: smiley, although I dunno what to use for such.

    Oh man can I grab some of the Neopets ones? I really miss using :cough: [​IMG] and :clap: [​IMG]. Okay, I miss using all of them, but I'm not gonna force that on y'all. xD
    *looks at list* Holy shit they added so many. :O
    Oh, I forgot about :violin: [​IMG] and :unsure: [​IMG] , those are great too.

    Edit: Oh, ew, they have white backgrounds. =/ Maybe not then.

    making the backgrounds transparent shouldn't be too hard I think?

    anyways here is my contribution for favorite emoji:

    (might add more later, there are a couple of "hug" ones that I think are really cute)

    I want a middle finger emoji, but this place might be the only place I don't actually need it to communicate.

    Ah! a fistbump emoji. Although, all the pictures image search offers look as though someone's trying to punch you. hunh.

    Lame little request for a heart symbol? I always end up preferring an actual little loveheart to '<3' which looks more like pizza or something to me, so it'd be nice to have the option.
