    Why we do not have all those smilies that every body have in other forums?

    We have to use the same 13 but there are more than 20 I think.

    Can we add them to the forums?:rolleyes:

    Yeah. There are some ideas that can only be clearly expressed by attaching an animated smiley banging against a brick wall. :rolleyes: :confused: :mad: :eek:

    Please God, no.

    there are a lot more than 20. there are hundreds, probably thousands... of course they don't come standard with vBulletin, but i'm pretty sure you can add them.

    i do think that we could use a couple more. but i find that too many, especially large ones and various colored ones, and animated ones, are distracting and tacky. macrumors is macrumors partly because it shows tasteful restraint. if i had my way, i'd probably add about four more, yellow and sized the same, just conveying some more emotions. but none of this "two smilies toasting mugs of beer" or that sort of thing...

    I don't want to start a war, but I think that it would be nice to have some additional smilies. Anyone could make a nomination. The Mods would set up a poll. We should all abide by the decision of the majority. There are times that I think if I just had that smilie?

    I can only see "afraid/panic" missing for my needs. (not that I'm prone to panicking ;))

    Also, am I to deduce from Sun Backed's (damn that's hard to say!) post that he's 'responsible' for appelmacdude's wacky 'tar? Oh, the bananas :eek: :) :p :D

    The little guy got nuked during the last db problem, and a lot of the newer bookmarked MR hosted smilies no longer work. :eek:

    And I finally edited my newer uploaded smilie bookmarks, so they're working with the db change. [​IMG]

    You may have to revise the bookmark a bit if you want to reuse the picture/smiley you or somebody else uploaded.

    Otherwise you'll get this...

    Instead of this...

    i understand how to attach images and animations

    but from what i understand there is a way to access images that have already been uploaded and use them in posts without using the attach image option?

    what's this about bookmarks?

    If you do a "view image" (or get address) on mischief's uploaded smiley and link to it using the image code, you'll get...

    [​IMG]

    Sucks huh?

    Same image address (line of code), slightly modified...

    [​IMG]

    But you can also bookmark the image's address, and grab that address every time you need to repost the smiley. Though you'd likely want to modify the bookmark address so it works every time you need it, otherwise it's a PIA to find the image code resolves as a line of text.

    I am still confused on how to get the image instead of the link.... Without having to attach the image.
