II's easy enough to pinch them from elsewhere. I guess we do have a pretty poor range compared to other forums, plus there's some that seldom get used anyway, maybe we could vote on them as well...

I think we have a pretty good range compared to elsewhere.

I like ours because it's farily clear what each of them means, and they're big enough to see easily, and there isn't too many.

You wanna see the Volvo Forum emoticons - they are so bad that you can use any, ever :roll: (it's probably why so many arguments break out there).

It might not be straightforward to remove smilies: what do you do with posts where they're used?

I suppose you can replace :?: and :!: in all posts with '?' resp. '!'.

:cry: seems to duplicate :(
:frown: looks more :( than "frown"

I know :arrowu: is used quite frequently, but you could replace:
:arrowu: with ^^
:arrowl: with <<
:arrowd: with VV
:arrow: with >>

Sorry I meant can't. Nice Frod emoticon :lol:

rwb - you're right, removing them would mess up the archives :| some forums have a select few like we've got and then another menu with 'more' emoticons - I don't know if this is possible here?

TBH I haven's got a clue how to change them, I know Teamy likes a tinker in the bowels of the forum, perhaps he can have a look? :supafrisk:

You're right about the Volvoforum ones Welly, they're awful. It's virtually impossible to find suitable ones. :roll:

not sure what the admin ucp is like on here but everything else seems like the old football forum i used to run and on there we just added the extra smilies and it created another page for them.
