Tired of the regular "
" grins and the like?

How about...a FERRET:

The ever-popular "sick as a dog":

And the new, extremely tasteless but appropriate for a tactical forum...HEADSHOT:

Unfortunately they're not coded directly into UBB and probably never will be...but they're available as online graphic images.

Edit my post to extract the HTML to use 'em. Only admins can actually save *changes* but anyone can look at the actual text, save it to a notepad file or whatever and reuse as needed.

Can anybody figure out a trooly kewl way to make my trademark moustached smiley? :{)

I should offer a prize ... how about a certificate of geekness? I'll email it to you and you can print it out and frame it and hang it on your wall between your posters of Voodoo Child and The Outsider! If a geek won't work his tail off for a prize like that....

This is a TEST...hope it works...?













Damn. No joy. SPARK!? Buddy...on Glockforums (http://ericcom.com/glocktalk/) they've got a whole buttload of COOL extra smileys...any chance of figuring out how, getting 'em over here?

Jim, Eric (from Glock Talk) hacked them into his script, so that they could be added in to threads. It's not that hard to do, just a matter of adding a few lines of code for the amount of smilies that you want.

As you guys know, I'm pretty lazy, so I don't like doing unnessary modifications that I don't need to do, especially considering how often we upgrade the board around here. You'll notice that Eric is still on version 5.18, because of the hacks he's introduced into his board.

The guy who writes this software has been informed about the custom smileys, and they may be introduced into future "official" versions of the UBB, so that there would be one less thing to hack in.

BTW, I like them too, they are pretty cool.

Hopefully we'll see them soon.

Ah. I see. Having the board remain stable by being able to add the latest code is more important. I hope Madrona adds more smileys, mine or others at some point.
