    To me it looks retarded, gay, demented, and just plain fucked up. So I edited it so it doesn't look so SpEcIaL.

    Original:

    New:

    Or, we could go old skool and revert back to this: [​IMG]

    We also need these important additions:

    I definetly think it would be good to update the simley face.

    The other additions are cool, but would need to match the theme of the others.

    But please keep the numbers low guys. I don't want this forum to look like a msn conversation with a 15 year old girl.

    Im all in favor of getting more smilies but i dont want it to be too many that it gets out of hand like on some of the other forums. I dont want to have to open them up in a separate window either.

    what...

    Why? Just why? What is this going to give the board and the site? Apart from looking unprofessional and it being a huge waste of time. Some of you need to grow up.

    Hopefully alex will bring this to the attention of whoever is needed. The vast majority all agree, this forum needs more smilies simply to cover all the occasions the current set of smilies do not.

    Lotus: This is not a "professional" forum. Do you see any corporate name slapped in the address bar such as Asus, eVGA, BOC, or Mushkin? No? Me neither.
