'Smilies' and Icons

Unread postby A_theist » Mon Jan 25, 2010 8:31 pm

I know people have suggested new/different smilies and icons in the past. Here's a thread for posting and discussing new/different additions, so there doesn't need to be 1 new thread for each individual suggestion.

Anyways, I wanted to suggest adding a small red flag on a black pole to the 'smilies' icon database for posting. I think the red flag will be useful when posting. We could use it when we think people are spouting bullshit, or when people are overlooking/ignoring parts of a post that we think they should or would like them to address.

As a bonus... it would be a really easy icon to make, unless someone wanted to bother animating it likeit's flapping in the wind. Then it would be harder.

What do you think about this suggestion: adding a red flag to the 'smiley' icon database?

Could be useful. I'm for it.

dr told us mods over 6 months ago that to add another smilie would be a problem, because it would require one to be shit-canned in order to do so.
So, if you want said new smilie, which one will we shit-can?

I like the eye roll :roll: but we could DEFINITELY get rid of these: :!: :?: :idea: :arrow: :)

Plus we have "geek" :geek: and "uber geek" :ugeek: - so we could get rid of the first one.

Why do we need :?: or :!: when we have the same in text? I don't think we need :arrow: either, when is the last time you seen someone use it? I think these three are all primarily useless.

I agree. And I had another idea for a 'smilies' icon, based on some user's comment that I thought was garbage.

Let's add:

1) A red flag

and

2) A garbage can

LOL - I would make good use of those! OR, replacing one of those... how about a pile of horse shit? :lol:

Yeah, I love both of those ideas. Shall I start drawing dr (for the can and the pile)?
Trouble is, I expect to have to change out my motherboard twice in the next three weeks. I may have little time to draw after tomorrow.
