    As per topic... is that possible or do you guys keep the smiley list small and cosy for a reason? It would be nice to show how pleased I am with someone's comment. This :) just does not really allow me to express myself fully and I have a thing against this :cool: smiley for some irrational reason. That smiley looks like a guy just looking for a fight - the smug bastard.

    I've done an informal survey and you can see that both the nurse and middle-management guy agree.

    Also it would be nice if the thumbs up didn't include the extra wink as well. I am not trying to wink, since winking can be misconstrued and lead to a sexual harassment suit.

    Based on the results of your survey, I would have to agree. [​IMG]

    The survey was audited by the same people that worked at Arthur Anderson and used to audit Enron so you can be sure that the results are impartial, verified and correct.

    ;) oh no wait :eek:

    I'm not particularly fussed either way, but the OCD in me likes to see the nice 4x3 setup we have now!

    Smug little bastard......:cool:


    Great line. I love it..

    Me thinks some people take these little things a tad too seriously though.

    ;)

    Perhaps the addition of 4 new smileys to make a nice 4x4 display would keep your OCD in check? ;)

    Or maybe a thumbs down icon. Hmm... maybe we should start a poll. :p

    I'd put a thumbs down frowning face here, if we had one. :) I guess you can consider that a vote.

    Sorry, only thumbs up or up votes are allowed here. A thumbs down icon or a down vote button are taboo.

    That just means we'll need three more icons to keep the rows and columns even. :p

    A useless bit of trivia: back in the day when a Mac OS used to show a smiling Mac Plus on boot-up; the Mac winked during bootup. But they removed it before release, as it might be considered culturally insensitive.
