Purging of smilies needed...
 
Hello all !

Maybe you've never noticed that before (Which is possible because we've all our own favorite ones), but the total number of smilies available here is impressive ! Moreover, a huge part of them is almost never used and contribute to increase the loading time of the page which gathers them. (Simply go there to find it)
Next, I think that all LucasForums members do not possess a broad-band connection and a un-limited time to use it (I believe that all dial-up access' owners will agree with me). Finally, please give me links which point to posts using these smilies : ":moped:", ":eyemouth:" or ":doo1:"... (I can only tell you good luck...)

Consequently, I hope you'll hear my plea and do what have to be done...

Thanks in advance !...

I've actually seen the first and third one.

ChAiNz.2da 09-02-2005 08:43 PM

And I know I've used the 2nd one before ;)

Besides, I like my smilies, choice = good... in fact, I had a friend watching over my shoulder and he commented on how kewl it was that these forums had so many awesome emoticons... his forums were lacking :xp: neener neener... hehehe

Thrik 09-02-2005 08:52 PM

Most people memorize a select half-dozen or so that they like and then manually type in the code frequently, rather than continually open up the whole page. I don't think it can really be considered an issue.

I knew I had seen the second one used somewhere. Anyway, I completely agree! Choice=good!

The only thing I could suggest is reordering them. Maybe by most popular/used. It's not a major thing, though, but some of the more useful ones are hard to find sometimes.

Well, there you go. Problem solved.(even for my suggestion, too :)) Then all you need to do is check the smilies page every now and then to see if they added any new ones you might want to use. As you read post, you might also come across a few that you think are cool and just check the code then.

Ofcourse, if you dont want to do all that, just stick with the rivers and the lakes that you're used to.....(why the heck did that pop in my head..... :doh: )

I usually use one of those smilies : ":rolleyes:". Unfortunately, it already happened that I forget what its code was... Consequently, I had to open the entire page of emoticons and look for my favorite head's code... And, believe me, it was tiresome... :mad:

SBF_Dann_Boeing 09-05-2005 02:00 PM

There are THOUSANDS of those things! :nut: There are some that aren't even smilies. I mean what the hell is this :sheepdanc ? It's freaken me out! :eyes8: But still they're fun use :blaze6: But I normally just use the regular smileys :thmbup1:

Do the Robot! :3pdance:

Darth333 09-05-2005 03:28 PM

I used this one more than quite a few times: :sheepdanc It's just funny :cowdance

Some of the smileys I use to use disappeared since the transition to vb3. I was looking for one in particular yesterday and it wasn't there any more :(

I think it's nice to have a wide choice of smileys. If you just want to use a few ones, then you can easily memorize them.

Jan Gaarni 09-05-2005 04:09 PM

:sheepdanc

Call the Ghostbusters!!

It's Mr. Stay Puffed!!! :D :D


Darth333, just tell them (those who are in charge of the forums) where it went, and if you remember the code, provide it too.

I noticed that :thumbsup: was missing one day when I needed it, and said so in the thread I was using it. Few days later it was back. Not sure if they fixed it or not, but I think they did. :)

Joshi 09-05-2005 05:28 PM

Here's an idea, open the page once, copy and paste into a Word document or similar, and then consult that whenever you want a smily. It obviously won't insert the thing for you when you click on it, but it'll at least have the correct code there for you. Just a suggestion, as someone who rarely uses smilies save for the generic ones ( :) :( and so on) I can't guarantee it'll work (i.e, the copy and paste may make things look odd, I don't know) but it should be cool. You're only worry will be having to check for newer ones (which are always at the bottom of the page), but at least it's a start.

Jan Gaarni 09-05-2005 06:47 PM

Checked and confirmed.

It takes a while though before it has inserted all in the document, and they are all frozen (as in none of them are moving).

But it works. :)

Joshi 09-05-2005 07:00 PM

Well, for moving ones...you know the right corse of action would infact be to just save the webpage on to your hard drive. Can't see why I didn't think of that before, but either way, it'd work a whole lot better.

EDIT

Oh no, wait, that would of course involve you having to download every single smily just so the webpage would work offline. So I guess the word document would work best.

Hehe , thanks to google cache I found the "gain others' pity" or "it's so sad" smiley again!http://www.lucasforums.com/images/smilies/bigeyecry.gif :p

code was :eyes3:

Acrylic 09-06-2005 12:14 AM

I love the fact that there are so many smilies.

My only suggestion is that you organize them a little bit more. They seem very unorganized. :(

Mike Windu 09-06-2005 02:21 AM

I like the smiley selection :D

In fact if you guys would add ninja turtles that would rock.

I agree! That would rock!http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y89...T/89a46609.gif

What an exciting idea!!!http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y89...T/b2a2925f.gif

I http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y89...T/0dd9ec65.gif LF

Ofcourse I had to say something. I mean, look at my avy and sig! http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y89...T/3917e977.gif

Leviathan 09-06-2005 02:01 PM

Hey, this thread was created to promote smilies' purging ! Not to add new ones !... :mad:

Joshi 09-06-2005 03:21 PM

Yeah, but not everyone wants to purge them. Try the above suggestions to make things easier for you.

Leviathan 09-08-2005 01:58 PM

In fact, I didn't want to make that easier only for me, but for several other persons who think so... I'm a sort of spoke-man of dial-up conection's owners... :p

REDJOHNNYMIKE 09-23-2005 12:45 AM

Organizing them would definitely help, especially newbs like me who really didn't use the web much before coming here and don't know them well.

Maybe something like, top section=basic yellow face smilys, next=starwars characters, next=non SW characters, ship relateds, weapon relateds, drunk relateds, etc.

So if you don't know the codes you can find them quickly:D

Leviathan 09-24-2005 03:40 PM

"Drunk Related" ?! You're kidding, I hope... :mad:

Jan Gaarni 09-24-2005 04:20 PM

:cheers: <----- there's one. :)

Leviathan 09-25-2005 01:37 PM

"There's one" ?!... So, there are several (useless) smilies like it ? :(

2 actually...
:guiness: :cheers:

Plus the various "barf" or "sleepy" ones depending on how you depict being drunk (or the morning after) ;) hehehe..

But yeah, I wouldn't see that as necessarily an entire 'category' IMO

90SK 09-29-2005 12:16 AM

I was a tad miffed when I notice that while several useful smileys had been nixed, we were still in in possession of ": ore:" and ":nova: ". Oh Joy.

And what the hell is this :mex1: ? Some generic mexican just puffing away on that weed? Why don't we make a french smiley chugging wine, or an american smiley eating a big mac? (donít get me wrong, I got a good laugh out of it).

El Sitherino 09-29-2005 09:07 AM

Dude, it's obviously a tourist.

TiE23 10-08-2005 08:52 PM

You guys need to add this:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v1...azy_smilie.gif
Maybe something like :<: or :uhh:

90SK 10-11-2005 08:07 PM

How about this?
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...e/More/ugh.gif

It's raunchy, but having a smiley's head chopped off in a guillotine w./ blood is worse, so why not?

El Sitherino 10-13-2005 01:53 AM

... I'd rather not think about the many posts Revan and Bastilla will make containing that smilie...

Indeed, poleparty vs. violence! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v9...s/00001655.gif

90SK 10-13-2005 05:54 PM

That's the spirit.

edit: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...smiley-018.gif It's grim and fun at the same time! Everyone wins!

TiE23 10-14-2005 09:32 PM

Come on! We need that crazy smilie!

90SK 11-26-2005 04:53 PM

How about this: a modification of :smash:, beating a dead horse. That would be useful; I can think of loads of places where that might be put to good use (and TIE's one would be great too).
