A facepalm smiley would be awesome.

Fishn4Zora

Any of those two could work.

#52 Posted by Teenaged (31743 posts) -

May I make a suggestion. I don't know if its already mentioned but I would like a smiley like that:

When someone doesn't know and shrugs his/her shoulders. Like saying "I honestly don't know, what can I tell you?" or something like that. Now I don't know if I am making it clear.

But anyway, DeviantArt has A LOT of emoticons, there are good references there for everything. :)

Hope I was helpful. :D

#53 Posted by Teenaged (31743 posts) -

Another one:

Name: Yawn
Description: Well, in case a wall of text is boring somebody, they can post a yawning smiley.
Text: :yawn: should do it.
Animated: I don't have GIMP, so I can't make one similar to the ones we have. However...

http://www.raptorblog.com/forums/$tyle_emoticons/default/smiley-yawn.gif

that's a good example. If anybody can make this look like our smileys, I'd be impressed, kinda.

(And PLEEEEAASSSE fix the cl@ss/$tyle glitch. It gets really annoying when I'm posting a pic or link or something I can't work around.)

Video_Game_King

Isn't there a problem there though? I mean I would love to use such an emoticon, but what if the user it is attributed to finds it offensive (trolling or whatever) and reports me for it? I mean sometimes you get moderated for sarcasm, and I am really scared with what I say from now on...

Idk just a thought...

I would definitely over use that one! :P

#55 Posted by topsemag55 (19063 posts) -

I'd like to see some animated emoticons, like the Bethesda Forum has (the Oblivion Gate is a good one).

Still trying to figure out why I can't place the ones they already have in posts.

#56 Posted by KLAX42 (3368 posts) -

Sorry for my neglect of this thread and whatnot. Been on vacation with very limited access to...anything. :? But I've returned! I like the stuff you guys are putting together.
I'm especially fond of shifty eyes and the one with the party hat.

I'll throw together some suggestions later on.

#57 Posted by 3DayFinisher (40501 posts) -
Digits: Can't use a "less than" for the hat and : Party: is impossible thanks to the : P one. :Hat:, perhaps?>carstairs
Actually the fix is quite simple. Use a lower case P. :party:
#58 Posted by ArmoredCore55 (23812 posts) -

Here's a few:

Name: Sick
Detail: or
Digits: :sick:
Animated: No.

Name: Scared
Detail:
Digits: :scared:
Animated: The eyes are.

Name: Rockin'
Detail:
Digits: :rockin:
Animated: Yes

#59 Posted by Teenaged (31743 posts) -

Name: Scared
Detail: Here
Digits: :scared:
Animated: The eyes are.

ArmoredCore55

This doesnt look scared. Maybe you could have the eyes move horizontally not on top and have them move faster.

#60 Posted by jewls555 (6906 posts) -

Great examples of some smileys that incorporate BBCode just like Gamespot does.

HERE

I support this 100%

#61 Posted by Horgen (109965 posts) -

1) Wrong Forum!
2) I'm sure the mods would love this! :lol: People could use it for threads, but the word isn't technically right.
3) (WF)
4) Non-Animated if you can stop the animation

I actually have this one uploaded in my images. :P Feed back?

lancelot200
Another one that is in the same category as wrong forum is this one [spoiler]  [/spoiler] ... I hope you guys don't find it to be to bloody. Name: Off topic Detail: See spoiler Digits: :*off: or :OT: (the first one is without the * there but I think it would cause a problem with this one :o ) Animated: Yes.
#62 Posted by markop2003 (29917 posts) -


Name: Serious Tophat

Detail: This one , should be used in serious threads by serious people.
Digits: :tophat:
Animated: No need... but it's a lot taller than other smileys so i hope that's alright.

Hungry_bunny

Nice idea but due to the height i can see it making posts look messy, how about just a monacle, stache and cigar?

markop2003
True. The same goes for the guy with the party hat a couple pages back.
#64 Posted by Dutch_Mix (29266 posts) -

I'll have to track down the rest of them, but here are a few Lithium emoticons I'd like to have back:

No uWinklol

#65 Posted by II-FBIsniper-II (18067 posts) -
I like the tophat one.
#66 Posted by omfg_its_dally (8068 posts) -
I support the idea of more smileys! However I am not very creative so keep the ideas coming, guys! Most of all I want a "Facepalm" smiley.
#67 Posted by _LiquidFlame_ (13736 posts) -

I agree, we need new smileys. :)

#68 Posted by Teenaged (31743 posts) -

So this has been discussed for some time.

Any progress with the new smileys?

Can an admin inform us on how this is going? I am curious.

Thanks. :D

#69 Posted by ps3wizard45 (12905 posts) -

We need a "hypnotised" and "Rock On!" smiley we also need "Desperate Prayer" Smiley IMO

Agreed.... an animated facepalm one would be great!

#71 Posted by AnObscureName (2069 posts) -

#72 Posted by Leehyori87 (1 posts) -
great ^^
#73 Posted by WeaponXY (1280 posts) -

Party and Top Hat ones are my favorites so far, the animated facepalm one was pretty great too.

#74 Posted by Cloud_765 (111386 posts) -
I think we should edit the 8) emote. It gets annoying when users make lists and they try to put 8 ) (without the space) and they get 8). Can we edit it to be B-) like on Yahoo Messenger or something similar?
#75 Posted by ArmoredCore55 (23812 posts) -

I was also thinking these would be cool:

Name: Soda
Detail:
Digits: :soda:
Animated: Yes.

Name: Hug
Detail:
Digits: :hug:
Animated: Yes.

Name: Rainbow Smiley
Detail: or
Digits: :rbwsm:
Animated: The first one is not moving, and the second one is.

Name: Popcorn
Detail:
Digits: :popcorn:
Animated: Yes.

Name: Angel
Detail:
Digits: :angel:
Animated: Yes.

Did the mods forget about the new smileys? :cry:

Moderators don't work on the site. Administrators do. Moderators (they're volunteers, while administrators are employees) keep the community free of undesirable content.

I would imagine that new smilies are a bit low on the priorities list with good reason. Another trade show and the hero competition demand everyone's attention. This will be taken care of at some point.

#78 Posted by boybrushdred (1892 posts) -

Name: rock on / you rock / let's rock

Detail: A smiley rockin' with a horned hand

note: i didnt make this smiley. this is from yahoo messenger. i hope someone could make a smiley similar to this.

#79 Posted by TheNintendo (159 posts) -

Name: Falcon punch (found on another forum, not mine)

Details: well.. falcon punch!

Digits: :punch: or something

Animated: Yes

I also am in favor of the facepalm smiley and the tophat.

#80 Posted by Hewkii (26339 posts) -
make :smug: turn into  and I will love you forever.
#81 Posted by XDXDXDXDXDXDXD (2399 posts) -

I would like to see the XD emoticon.

I've seen it used all kinds of ways, but most of the time I see it used in embarassing situations. Example: I wouldn't think RE5 sucks so bad if I could actually not suck at aiming. XD

Name: Embarassing
Digits: :embarassing: and/or XD

SavoyPrime

I totally support this and the top hat one XD Though I wish the white part on the outside could be cut out, but it's pretty good.

definantlya good suggestion.

Bumping this from the dead since users were talking about wanting new emoticons.
#95 Posted by Dariency (9406 posts) -

I definitely support adding new smileys to the available selection. The ones we have now are pretty basic. Some with animation would be cool.

#98 Posted by mariostar0001 (46245 posts) -
I'd like one for sympathetic, the smileys we have don't convey that properly at all. Then again it might just be the cartoon imagery that does it.
#99 Posted by woonsa (6321 posts) -

Here's one
