Default Can we get some more smilies? Pretty please?

I just find that we're missing some of the more basic smileys. There are a lot of free ones out there, like from GNOME:

Category:GNOME Desktop icons, emotes - Wikimedia Commons

There are a bunch on KDE-Look, most licensed GPL: Eyecandy for your KDE-Desktop - KDE-Look.org

phpBB is GPL as well: phpBB • Styles database


Like a great man once said, "There's no emoticon for what I'm feeling!"

Not meaning to push other sites over HWC, because I really like this site and the people that post here, and it is far more local to me, BUT XSF has a damn good selection of smilies. Could that be done here

I am going to jump on the "things are fine as-is" bandwagon if no nobody minds.

Yep, I'd agree! But if someone has a desire for a specific smilie, then I think you should post it and start a poll to see if people would want it. I wouldn't clutter the smilies up with every one that can be found. I think the idea of new smilies is a good one, only if they would add value to the emotion of the post. The ones available cover most emotions... so can anyone think of a specific one that we are missing?

Personally, I've always wanted to see all the smilies replaced with either A) Beaver Smilies, or B) Rick Rolls.

Both are acceptable.
