Smilies
So, one of the customizations I made to the forum software was ripping out all the default smilies so that none exist.

I personally dislike smilies, especially default ones, and especially the default ones this forum software came with. (I've been very satisfied with myBB, but the default art assets were pretty awful.)

Do people want smilies? Like, really actually want them? They are a lot of work to make but easy enough to put in; it would need to be a fairly well-made, comprehensive set. In other words, made by someone other than me.

Unless there is outrageous demand, my plan is to not do anything until final WH art exists, and maybe look into a full set of WH smilies that the online client would share.

RE: Smilies
I personally want smilies but not enough that you should go out of your way to get them.

I suppose the thing to do would be to ask the artisticly talented people from mspa if they care about smilies and would want to make some. That way it's basically no work for you. And if they all say no, then no smilies.

Also I can't help but think that smilies based on things that happened in previous forum games back on mspa would be really cool.

RE: Smilies
I use smilies all the time in my text, but I generally don't really care if they turn into pretty little images when i press post.

RE: Smilies
There must also be a :RAGE: smilie because there aren't enough ironic rage smilies.

That is, there aren't any at all.

Edit: Apples. Always apples. Why? Who knows. But their existence as graphic images for our enjoyment must still be facilitated!

RE: Smilies
mspa is my default smiley. I use it everywhere, and forever. With that, I don't really need any others (though if it is possible to get them, not have them look terrible, and sort of be relevant, that's cool too).

RE: Smilies
Whatever you do, if it's including smilies, NEVER, EVER include one like D:. One forum did and I'd be like "THINGS KILLED:" and it'd turn it into "THINGS KILLE[D: face]". It was awful.

what should I even put here

Yes, but why should I have to press that _EVERY SINGLE TIME_ I use a word that ends with a capital D and then a colon?
