In another thread, we were discussing adding more smilies to the main page (e.g. the ones that you can see without having to click the "view more smilies" option).

We've estimated that we can add about 4 more without making the reply window too large.

So, this is your opportunity to choose which ones you most want added. Click the "view more smilies" link, and choose 4 of your favourite or most-used smilies. Don't bother to vote for smilies that are already on the main page - you'll have wasted your vote! :P

Let's leave this open for a month, then lock the thread, calculate the most popular smilies and then we'll add them.

Please only vote once. If you change your mind, you can always just edit your post to change your vote.

So, rangers, can you remember to lock this thread on 29 January? (if we're on schedule, I won't still be a ranger then).

Have fun! :cheers:

I use some of the others more frequently, but I also seem to remember those codes. These are the ones that I use with some regularity but still have to look up.

I use mostly the ones from the first page. But I do occasionally use these from the second page:

Just a thought- we could fit more than 4 if they were smaller smileys. That top row of smileys has a lot more than the rest.

So if we want the maximum possible smileys, it might be good to have smaller ones like :shock: :yummy: :funny: etc.

I know people like him, but if we moved :Wooper: off the front page, we could probably even have a whole extra row.

That's a good point - actually I'm pretty sure we do have room for more than four, but we can decide on that when we see what the effects are of adding the first four.

Removing smilies from the front page, especially the larger ones, is a good topic, but for another thread, so as not to confuse the lucky person who will be going through this thread a month from now and counting votes. (since your name is coming up in the ranger pool, it might even be you! :razz:

Why don't we do 4 that we want on the front page, and also list up to four that we could do without that are already there. That way, instead of just getting rid of a random four, we could get rid of up to four that are least used/least liked?

If a couple people need to go back and edit their posts to say the four they don't like, it's easy enough, and won't mess up the purpose of the thread - just expand on it. ;)

Oh, we won't automatically get rid of a random four - the four new ones will be added to what we already have. Nothing will get removed unless we remove them on purpose.

:) You need to pick four of your favorites that aren't on the main page already (basically, anything after the geek face).
