    Does anybody think we need better/more smileys? Would you want these smileys on MacRumors??

    NO

    We're fine with the few we have. What next? Images in signatures?

    I avoid all cartoon smilies at all costs to begin with, so I voted no. Although, I'm probably not the best person to ask. :)

    No no no no no! The ones on MacRumors are far less hideous than any others I have seen anywhere else. They're, like, all subtle and shizzles.

    I would have to boycott all smileys and only use :) :( :o :P no parsed ones if we got silly ones like the ones above. Sorry!

    Another vote for no. Why have them when people can post all the cryptic n00b OMG!!! stuff.

    No thanks. Smilies should be as simple and to the point as the current set-up. Too cartoony and they become obnoxious.

    I would like a few new ones angel, devil, vomit, ninja, etc that can be easily distinguished from other ones. I don't see the point of having all those suggested smiles since some of them look alike.

    BTW, I think it's funny that due to the content of this thread, I saw 2 emoticon ads (1st reading, 2nd replying).

    I've always wanted more smilies, cause I feel they help to convey my mood, especially when I think some may misunderstand my tone. But since a friend turned me on to a great smiley site, I'm ok now.

    I'm in with the "no"s. And while we're on the subject (we are on the subject, right?) I would still love to see the :apple: "smiley" changed to just an outline of the logo. The full black is just so (and too) eyecatching.

    God no, it's one of the reasons I prefer MacRumors to other Forums. Too much clutter otherwise with emoticons that are either larger, more complicated, animated, distracting - bah. Same goes with images in signatures.

    The emoticons we currently have are good enough.

    MacRumors is a more refined Forum, let's leave it that way. :p ;)

    (See I like those emoticons... :))

    I voted yes, but not for more smileys, but nicer ones, better graphics, etc..

    You can always add your own smileys. [​IMG] No need for more built in ones.

    I think we could actually get rid of some of the existing ones...

    These two at least could go

    But if you get rid of the cool emoticon how will I properly convey my utter coolness to other MacRumors members? Oh wait never mind, they'll just realize it automatically and an emoticon won't even be required... :cool:

    The only smiley that I don't like is this one: :). I don't know what it is about that one, but it scares the bejesus out of me.

    Nah, I'm grateful for the attention to detail when setting up this forum, smileys included. It's what makes this site so great.
