A slight suggestion
« on: September 04, 2011, 08:47:57 pm »
Now, don't get me wrong. I enjoy these forums. They are well-moderated and there's a friendly, active community (I have found so far), with many people willing to part with personal wealth to give to new players.

However, there is one thing that annoys me. This smiley - ':P'. Now it just doesn't look like the : P face. It looks more like the : D face. There is now no way I can portray my wanting to show the : P face without it appearing that I have shown the : D face.

If there was one thing about these forums I would change, it would be that ^_^

Well, we never really bothered with the smileys. Do you have any suggestion what to change them with?

I like the irc one:

Get jan to make one that fits the current smiley style but looks more like : P should.

Anyone with an element of personality refrains from using them entirely except in implicitly ironic situations.

I don't think I've ever seen the forum smilies change. There was discussion about it a while ago but it fizzled out.

Wonder if I can find that thread..

Found it! Please add this one -
