More emotions could be cool, but could we keep it to fairly subtle ones, not stupidly big ones with lots of bright animation (like from my experiance a lot of Chinese forums have) it just makes posts looks ghastly.

those bright flashy ones are great for birthdays, or valentines day, something like that, but the more subtle ones, like what I posted are great.

Oh yeah I guess, just they often seem to be horrible over used.  To be honest, I still love my text emoticons ^__^

oh I had a friend once, and that was all he used.. couldn't for the life of me understand what he was saying.  He used them all the time, at least with the little ones you know exactly what they are.  The text emoticons are so yesterday, time has changed, and one day Quantum, your going to feel old at your young age for using them.. :)  Times move so quickly in this technological age.

ok.  I added more.  If it's too much I am sorry, but thought these covered birthday, everything. 

Hope this meets with peoples approvals. They would perhaps be better sorted into categories, but i didn't know how to do that.. cos they should really be under the more option.. sorry.

 [hitdesk] lol thanks! Just the one I asked for!

I think they are great! I was worried at first that it would take me away from the page so I was pleasantly surprised to find it come up in the little box. Nice one!
