    Smiley Faces.

    Post  AbyssHD on Tue May 08, 2012 1:14 pm

    So it has come to my attention that these faces= Are not appearing on the screen.

    And in case you don't know what I mean it is the 'Semi-Colon' and then a Bracket.

    Sorry, I know this isn't a 'big' issue, but I like those emotes.
    (To show my appreciation to other members.)

    Try to fix it soon please!

    Got turned off because people were overusing them. I'd have thought telling off the offending users would be a better option, but apparently turning them off completely was easier.

    They were taken off on purpose?!

    Didn't know this fact. Probably means that they will never allow them again....
    Anyway;
    Thanks for contributing.

    They were turned off because most of them were large, irritating and were being used way too often.

    Personally I don't think emoticons have any place in a forum like this and support the admins decision.

    It's always better to give thoughtful feedback and constructive criticism rather than simple emoticons. I know I'd rather people actually discussing a mod of mine as opposed to spamming me with afro-smileys.

    Unfortunately I took these smilies off because there were way to many younger members overusing them inappropriately and it got to the point where I could not moderate them all. Especially when used in immature fashion such as

    Just wondering where I can get CPVC from? o.O o.O o.O o.O o.O o.O o.O o.O o.O o.O o.O o.O o.O o.O o.O o.O o.O o.O o.O o.O

    You can't purchase CPVC in Australia

    OK THX SO MUCH FOR TELING ME =] =] =] =] =] =] =] =] =] =] =] =] =] =] =] =] =] =] =] =] =] =] =] =] =] =] =] =] =] =] =] =]

    It made the forum looks childish and unappealing for the more older members. So old school smilies we go :).

    I still wouldn't mind if the ascii emoticons (that is the plain text ones) would be allowed. But I did hate those image ones.

    Not likely. It's no big deal anyway. Forums are meant for discussion, not spamming emoticons.
