Do you want a smiley to be added? Post them here! Miasmic Blitz icon.png Hapi007 Talk! Sign! . 10:51, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

Template names[edit source]

Wouldn't it have made more sense to name the templates based on how we normally form these emotions? So something like {{:-)}} for the smiley one. That way I could just add curly brackets around the emoticons I normally use to punctuation my speech. ;-) It seems like too much trouble to type {{smile}}.

I agree. Seems odd to type smile instead of :) when you are expressing yourself. =| Santa hat.png Powers38 おはようヾ(´・ω・`) 03:57, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
Hmm, seeing as how I typed "=|" as a force of habit, I think we really should change it. Santa hat.png Powers38 おはようヾ(´・ω・`) 03:58, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
I don't think we can create a template starting with a colon (:).   az talk   06:04, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

What about using "="? They can be used to express yourselves too, like "=)". Quest point cape detail.png Brux Talk 16:19, 10 July 2009 (UTC)
Well, it has to be better than typing smile. :| Santa hat.png Powers38 おはようヾ(´・ω・`) 02:43, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

Icons[edit source]

If this stays as a project then the graphics should be uploaded to the wiki, but we need to make sure that we have the legal right to do so. Where did these graphics come from? Leevclarke talk Max_logo_mini.png bulldog_puppy.png 14:04, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

They look quite similar to most forum emoticons. Santa hat.png Powers38 おはようヾ(´・ω・`) 14:12, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

:P[edit source]

There needs to be one for :P/=P. It is the only smiley I actually use in-game. Also possibly ^_^, though it doesn't look good on wiki. I poached both the ideas off the forum's smileys Unicorn horn dust.png Evil Yanks talk 02:38, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

I was thinking more of somebody not smiling, more like angry/annoyed, like the image I suggested Smile Quest point cape detail.png Brux Talk 19:39, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

Protection Level[edit source]

I'm thinking as these images will be widely used by the community there should be a form of protection on the images to prevent random vandals, which would target a large amount of pages. I support a semi-protection.

Agreed. Every single emoticon page? There are currently... 20. Miasmic Blitz icon.png Hapi007 Talk! Sign! . 17:50, 20 July 2009 (UTC)
I also agree to that. Everywhere I go I see smiles, and that isn't a bad thing, unless the pages got vandalized. ~MuzTalk 17:53, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

King/chicken/megaphone[edit source]

Can you make a king one (3:) does not look great, but on some places it does)? Or how a bout a chicken one (:4)? Or a megaphone one/talking person (:A)? Sorry these don't look very good, but they look great on a Digital clock. Youdead00 21:16, December 7, 2009 (UTC)

How about a smiley wearing a cap sideways? Like so:

Created[edit source]

Made the smileys: {{Police}}, {{Dizzy}} {{Bagonhead}} {{Concussion}} {{Zorro}} {{Ninja}} {{X-rsise}} {{Pirate}} {{Rock on}} (the swearing one looks too offensive)

Why isn't there an angry emote? And why isn't eCopM0F.png hosted on the wiki? --Nup(T) 07:15, January 2, 2010 (UTC)

The emotions are a mess some should be removed . —Manyman (talk) 07:30, January 2, 2010 (UTC)
Yea, like Cat and Santa and (l). They're hardly used. --Nup(T) 07:31, January 2, 2010 (UTC)

Nobody seems to even fix this page....It says that we're not allowed to. Youdead00 22:50, January 15, 2010 (UTC)

=O[edit source]

Why the heck does {{=O}} result in OMG!? OMG! is a smiley for O_O. =O is completely different. ~ Fire Surge icon.png Sentry Telos Talk  00:50, February 28, 2010 (UTC)

Proposal - Make a {{O_O}} template using the OMG! smiley, then upload a new smiley to use for {{=O}}. ~ Fire Surge icon.png Sentry Telos Talk  08:34, March 1, 2010 (UTC)

Neutral, leaning Support - What about all the times that =O has been used to make O_O ? Chicken7 >talk 08:46, March 1, 2010 (UTC)

Can we change the current smile to something a little less big, more of a grin. I'm saying this because there isn't any emote to signify a slight smile. 222 talk 09:51, June 23, 2010 (UTC)

You mean like this? kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 21:22, September 13, 2010 (UTC)
^Yer, that works. 222 talk 06:45, October 21, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - It is ok this way. The smiley Psycho linked to looks really plain and boring: not what smileys are for. If you can find a way to let them be kewl together with smaller, i'd support(and plz don't just resize the current ones unless that keeps the kewlness...) JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 13:26, November 15, 2010 (UTC)

Oh and err, 222, if u like this size, why don't you like the exact same size of Smile.gif, which is both 15x15px? Just wondering... JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 13:31, November 15, 2010 (UTC)
I believe he means the size of the grin not the size of the image itself. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 09:32, November 16, 2010 (UTC)
^222 talk 09:46, November 17, 2010 (UTC)
hmm... still the suggested smile looks too plain imo. I'll see what i can do to edit it. It should be a new template and image though, as there are probably quite a few people who used it when wanting this smile, not such a small smile. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 10:44, November 23, 2010

24 new ones[edit source]

I got 24 new smileys. I list them here, listed small to big, with suggested names: (links are insteada some image, bcus inserting image didn't work)

1 replacing Rolling eyes, as that one doesn't move.

current =O to O_O, and maybe a bot could replace all current =O to O_O.

5 omg

6 zorro

7 ninja

20 coffee

21 idea

22 please

23 shthappens

24 ty

If its ok to add em, plz let me upload them myself. Also plz say what images are allowed by telling the number. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 13:23, August 13, 2010 (UTC)

Ok, I'll upload all emoticons that fit in one text row, so that's until #13, exept for the ones that should be replacing other images. This is a list of emots i'll upload: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15-24
If someone disagrees(for example if this isn't allowed or something), please comment below, and i won't upload tomorrow yet. There should still be discussed about #1, 4, 9 and 15-24. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 17:32, August 14, 2010 (UTC)
I suppose this is allowed, but I do not agree that we need more. Already many of the emotes we have are barely used at all, and would be perfectly effective as imageshack links in any of the few instances they might need to be used. In response to you saying "let me upload them myself," I think you need to stop having an attitude of "How can I help the wiki" and instead think of it as "How can the wiki be improved?". It shouldn't matter to you who uploads the files, so long as the wiki is better for it. I do support replacing the current OMG!. Riblet15 03:22, August 15, 2010 (UTC)
Ok, ye, i know, that bout the "let me upload it": i changed my mind, and just try to help the wiki(although a bit credit is still appreciated) and i also like to have #1 instead of {{Rolling eyes}} and i just really like #2, #3, #5(awesome), #12(rly funny), #13, #14 and #19, and i agree with the =O. Those are the ones i like the most. As there was a comment, i will delay uploading them until 1 day after the last comment. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 17:37, August 15, 2010 (UTC)
The ones with strikes through it already exist. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 03:21, August 17, 2010 (UTC)

How To Watch[edit source]

Okay, to continue my previous statement before my stray little finger rudely interrupted me by hitting the enter key, how do I watch, follow, or bookmark a page on this wiki? BieberAxeKiller 01:38, June 21, 2012 (UTC)
