Default Smileys


I thought we reached a consensus to remove the disturbing smileys?

When will that be done?

***

On the other hand, I've got a nice smiley that I've just made... have a look:

When we figure out how to do it. We have new Admin, front of house and back, and it's not as easy to change things as you might think.

LOL! Yes, they can be distracting. I propose a tar and feathering for anyone who uses more than two in a single post. Smilies are the same as calling something the color of juice.

Why are they removing smileys? Which ones are disturbing?

Hi Jediblues!

If you open the "smilies" tab, you'll find an entire section labeled "weapons". No-one ever uses them, so they were slated for removal. However, administration has recently changed hands, so it's been on a back burner. If you check you might still see them!

HoiLei.

Bit of an update here.

If you look at the Writer's Beat staff link, you will see that I am not the only Admin. There are others who predominantly work behind the scenes, while I deal directly with the forum. At the present time, I am waiting to hear back about who has access to the Smiley Manager so those we do not need can be removed. While I do have access to make changes to various parts of the forum, there are other areas that remain in the control of the owner and his company (fair enough, too). Smileys are one of the things I cannot change.

You see, all you gotta do is show em your red name and they'll scatter like night critters in the eye of a flashlight.

Haha! Wish I could scatter other things like that in real life.

Well done, Q! (funny saying that... it's a little awkward)

"Well done, Q?" Sounds like "Well, dunk you!" Lol.
