Default Smilies

We don't have many choices for smilies here, and I'm just curious as to why they are so limited. I don't see the need for dozens of them like we have at CS, but a few more would be nice.

Specifically, I would like to see the laughing smilie. Maybe it wasn't included for fear that someone would use it to laugh inappropriately at someone's opinion? That's not what I'd like it for...every once in a while someone makes a joke that gets me chuckling, and its a handy way of expressing my appreciation.

Just thought I'd put it out there.

We're on a different skin, and I suspect the smilies are going to clash more with this darker background - I need to try it some day.

The main reason, though, is that we never really bothered to do anything about it. Truth to tell, as a debate forum (and not so much a fun-based site as CS is) it didn't seem necessary.

Nudge me, and eventually I'll nudge Mike and see if he feels like adding a few appropriate ones.

*nudges*

I wouldn't mind seeing just the lol smiley, not the rolling smiley. Maybe one or two of the anger smilies as well? Most of the current smileys on here speak for themselves.

(But don't nudge me back. I'm not that Mike! )

Looks like I've been nudged.

I'll try to get in here and add some. It's been awhile, so it might take some time for me to remember how to do it.

I'm partial to the smiley.

Sometimes, that's all you can add to a comment.

Thanks Mike! *notworthy smilie*

As far as how to do it, don't you just login whatever way you need to, turn on the webcam, make the face or gesture into the cam, and it's automatically converted?

Obviously, having each and every one from the CS Board would be overkill, but some off the top of my head I'd like to see, would be the shrug, like Ree suggested, and like fireheart suggest the lol. Also, the devil.

Just thought of another one that may get occasional use; .

Even though the main theme of this Board is debate, there are occasional threads/posts where the author is relating some type personal experience and garners words of comfort and support from others.

Also, it would be good as an expression of support to someone in a debate, if they have said something very personal, and are afraid of being criticized. The hug would help let know its not personal.
