    New Smilies

    Hey all, first off this is not relating to the closed thread regarding the smiley. I just wanted to start a poll and kindly ask Ernie and the mod team (who rocks BTW) that i am not alone in asking for a larger or different set of smilies.

    I just finished my 1 year anniversary with WUS, and am loving it. Plan on having many more years to come.

    I use smilies frequently, and think they are a fun way to show emotions, and spice up my reply.

    Can you guys please add different ones, and more of them? I dont think its a hefty task to get more smilies, and the ones you can add should be appropriate and fun. Im not asking for "evil" smilies or ones that mean "shut up" or anything. Its jsut weve had these for a while, and could use a change up.

    I attached a poll to see if folks other than myself would like more of them.

    With respect, this issue has been discussed a number of times. The general feeling on the Moderator panel is that what really attracts people to WUS is the quality of the posts, the excellent photography, and the helpful information given to new collectors.
    Smilies are OK, but will having a lot more really do much to improve the things that we feel are essential?

    I would vote NO as well, since having more smileys and emoticons encourages people to use those instead of typing out posts. We'll end up with a bunch of posts like:

    great timepiece!
    nice pickup!
    looking sharp!


    All of which serve to raise postcounts but contribute absolutely no knowledge to this forum, and the knowledgebase is what people find the most useful.

    Re: New Smilies

    I would love to see some more smileys!

    I've been lurking on candlepowerforums and they have the biggest selection of smileys ever! Yet, even with all of the smileys, I haven't seen andy problems with people posting one word responses.

    So a big YES to smiles from me.

    Re: New Smilies

    funny, the only folks saying no to smilies are mods.

    i dont think too many people here post to raise their post count, i dont care about how many posts i tack up. i just think theyre fun.

    I wonder what Ernie thinks about this....can a mod ask him?
