    No thanks. We have enough already.


    We don't want to become overrun by the little buggers...

    I'd love to have those large high-resolution shiny ones. These would be perfect and should be implemented immediately.

    Unfortunately we don't have a good one for 'irony'

    I want this one, but for sole use by moderators and admins.

    I think those are tacky. I'd like something similar to what we already have, but with just a couple more useful ones.

    sometimes you get into the situation when a smiley is not 100% representative. In that case I generally dont use a smiley. But a couple more will be a good thing...

    I suspect .Andy's tongue may have been within the vicinity of his cheek there.

    But out of interest, in what way do you feel the current twelve are lacking – what are the 'emotions' (for want of a better word) that you want to convey that aren't currently represented?

    NO. One of the best features of MR is its clean and uncluttered look. As a matter of fact, I say reduce the count to 8.

    I'd really like a smiley for the :-/ face, or a maybe a :-S face. I would also like to be able to have a heart <3 symbol to use.

    I guess these ones aren't that important, but I wouldn't mind being able to use them when the need arises (if they existed).

    There is a :-S - :confused:


    I like the smileys fine as they are. We've got the all important :rolleyes: Not to be cynical, but if we had hearts we'd be overrun with <3 :apple: everywhere

    The :apple: should be the first to go!!1! :apple::apple::apple:

    The remaining to be removed should certainly be the :mad: and :rolleyes:, leaving only those smilies that aren't angry or rude, two emotions which should be far more difficult to express.


    And while we're at it, please reduce the number of font sizes to two: regular, and small.

    Couldn't agree more. Those two smilies in particular have the capacity to create trouble and I'm careful about using those two. I've never liked the Apple logo, never saw the point.

    But having the capacity to do large text sometimes is nice and also useful. Maybe it should be restricted to those who deserve the privilege, like demis. ;)

    a smile face for irony would be good, and maybe one for mild shock in addition to the big eyed one

    how about one for empathy?

    there are others i can't think of but choice is always a good thing

    Why only faces? Why not hand (finger) signals too?

    The ban hamster was edesignuk's fave here on MR. I can't steal his material, no matter how prevalent it is elsewhere. The MR Inquisition is a classic and although we certainly count fear, surprise and ruthless efficiency... and an almost fanatical devotion to Arn amongst our weapons, we do not yet have nice red uniforms... or uniforms of any colour, for that matter.

    However, I'm trying to persuade the powers that be to implement...

    When the :apple: icon showed up, it was because Apple put the logo before everything in their marketing. :apple:TV, :apple:iPhone and so forth.

    But Apple has since abandoned this practice, and the :apple:TV is the only one using that now. But we can just call 'em AppleTV like everyone else.

    So with all that said, I agree with you, the :apple: smilie should be the first to go.

    I don't find much use for :apple: in posts, but I think it looks good as a separator in signatures.
