    I feel that an excessive number of smilies add nothing but clutter to any message board. The available smilies are plenty sufficient for expressing almost any emotion you which (which is the original intention of smilies). I'm not going to add smilies holding up random signs or blowing each other up because they add absolutely nothing. Having a small set of effective smilies provides a more visually appealing board, which is very critical to site growth. If there is some emotion you would like to express that we do not provide a smilie for, choose your words carefully and you will create an even more powerful impact than if you had just stuck up some generic image.

    Lets see... many members on this board would love to have more smilies... Clutter the board? Not really. Yeah, some are "useless" but they are just meant to be fun. Look how much we are cluttering the boards now by asking for more smilies. Its a simple request, and one that doesn't even require that much effort.

    hell, when i visit message boards its fun to see what smilies they may have. Practically everyone (except you apparently) seems to love the random smilies holding up signs and what not.

    How about you show some repsect to the person who created and built this site and in a lot of cases FUNDS the site....

    Your should respect his word and decision. I think you owe him an apology.

    i was only joking.but, ok, here's goes;

    Dear Sean

    Please forgive me, for I know not of what I do. I am but a pawn in a battle that is bigger than us all. The smilie rebellion has effected everyone of us. This battle is not being fought in some far off place, but right here, on our land, in our homes. blah blah blah, blah blah blah blah blah blah....

    I can see Sean's point. But, in Requiem's defense, other message boards I visit feature a great number more smilies than this board. On theirs, I don't see smilie clutter, just different smilies. They don't use smilies any more than we do, they just have more of them to choose from. I think that if you were to add a longer list of smilies, they would probably be over-used for awhile. But, that's just people trying something new, it's going to happen. But, I think, after a little bit, smilie useage would taper off to acceptable levels. :cool:

    :disgust: Makes no sense. This is a great site but if you don't listen to what the people want then who says they will stay anyway. Let's not forget that the people that post on this board are the reason why it is so big. Seems like more suggestions posted by members here are shot down rather than taken into consideration. Thought that was the point of a suggestion forum :confused: Correct me if I'm wrong :crazy:

    I know it seems petty and stupid to be making this big of a deal out of something so silly, but these people have given very valid arguments on the matter. Perhaps someone should set up a thread that has a poll. Get as many votes as possible on the matter and see what the people have to say. ;)

    What's wrong with the smilies we have now? I feel the same way Sean does. No I'm not sucking up or brown-nosing!!! :D

    My biggest problem with the smilies is that they keep moving. When I'm looking for :D (or whatever), it's in a different spot every time I post. Can that be fixed at least?

    Then next time reference a "just kidding." I apologize for jumping down your throat, but all I saw was your comment with the "evil" smily.
