Just wondering if there is any way to change the amount of emoticons that appear above the quick reply at the bottom of the page. I always use the quick reply to post, but it seems like kind of a waste to have the [more] button displayed if 90% of the emoticons are there by default. It would be nice if I could see the more standard ones displayed by default and the rest be reserved for the [more] pop up. The big spread of .gifs affects the performance of the page.

How does this have 580 views and no replies?  :smily677:

Good question... I remember looking at it once but I was on my way out. I can not personally do anything but hopefully Blind Druid will take note. It does seem excessive with the number of emoticons we have.

Thanks for the reply bones... It is not a critical issue of course but I think it would add to the overall aesthetic of the page as well as the performance to trim it up a little bit.

The guy with the pink kleenex in in there twice.   :troll:  needs to stay... :A_laughing_matter:
Now that I am older, I thought it was great that I seemed to have more patience.  Turns out I just don't give a damn.

I don't have an attitude...I have a personality you can't handle!

Well they would all stay, but some of the larger more sparsely used ones would be placed in the [More] pop up.

The thing is, most of the ones displayed are frequently used. I try to eliminate some that I feel are rarely ussed, and every time I can't really pinpoint any. I might move the animated ones for starters. Comments?

 :??? :devil_grin: :bored: :better_duck: :yu: :don't worry: :dddances: :that's OK: :sosad: :boogie: :Victory: :tough: :Thanks: :dancerr: :yahoo: :yupp:

Those ones don't seem to get as much use as the rest, as well as the "GOSENS" ones. There are others like the dancing banana which don't really serve any purpose but to mock people.  :laugh2: As mentioned before there are two hankerchief ones, two face against brick wall ones, and two red angry ones. Not really necessary. It's not like they'd be eliminated from use but out of however many posts per week we read how often are they really used? It's up to you brass to decide if it's a good idea, but hopefully some other users chime in with their opinion... I know that some people really use a lot of them while I mainly stick to 3 or 4 different ones.  :drink:

These are the ones I personally find to be used most often by myself and others.

I know they can easily be modified and put on a popup for the less used one.  Choose the ones you want on the main form and we'll update

I don't understand what the big deal is about them.  I love choices, so the more to choose from the merrier.   :giggles:

That one has to stay.  I'm always  :giggles:   :smily1263:  And this one too.   :thumbsup: 

Thanks Metal for all your hard work too.

They will still be there, you will just have to click the [more] link to access them. That, or memorize the code to bring them up, like :smily1263: for the whistler, for instance.

Variety is the spice of life and I like what we have....even though I don't use them all.  But I find the visuals sometimes help me set my "mood" when I post and a picture is worth a thousand words, after all (and my posts often do get wordy....can you imagine how much wordier they would be without our little emoti-pals?  ;)).

I don't care where they all are...as long as I can access them.   :nod:

Alright, I'm making this a public consultation. If anyone has anything to add to this conversation, you have until the weekend. Otherwise, the opinions mentionned here will be taken as agreed upon by all and acted on accordingly.
