Exclamation Smilies to remove

In the smilies thread Sarge pointed out that its time we finally got rid of all the serious sam related smilies that are nothing more than spam now. This thread is to get a public vote on 3 categories of smilies and if we want to remove them or keep them. These are the ones I would consider as spam or otherwise useless.

Here are the categories.

Serious Sam Smilies:
:rep: :bighead: :kamikaze: :kamikaze2 :kleer: :guffy: :gnaar: :pumpkin: :ughzan: :golem: :hopper: :fiend:

Weapon Smilies:


Miscellaneous Smilies:
:vamp: :sawed:

Now that is most of the current smilies but keep in mind that we are planning on adding a lot of new ones. So anyway vote away!

I would get rid of all the weapon smiles except that jumping knife one... it's funny and I still use it every once in a while, maybe keep the cannonball one too.

if we were to remove the weapon ones, we should still keep the ones SG did which have double meanings besides the SS weapons

flamethrower meaning the post is a flame, grenade launch bouncing backwards hinting at a backfire post and the bomb which could portray that "i'm so mad i could explode"

just my 2 cents CDN (.05c US)

The enemy ones dont serve any particular purpose, I can't remember realy using them...

The weapons i say keep as a group, because a few of them as toastar pointed out are useful...heh and some i just think are cool

I use often, i would realy miss it! But the serious bomb ones can go i guess, they just arnt that expresive IMHO.

To be honest, I don't use any of the smilies in question. My voting was based on annoyance more than anything else. The miscellaneous ones are fine, but the other ones I would be willing to see disappear just because they are used more often to annoy than convey additional meaning to posts.

I voted to get rid of them all.....we can always get "new and improved" weapon smilies, but for the most part I don't even pay attention to many anyways....other than the basic smile, wink, laugh, roll eyes, eek, mad, and a couple others their point is lost in the message(s) most of the time....

another suggestion is to re-arrange them so the most popular smilies appear in the box of 15 right here to the left of the "reply" box so we don't have to open up the list of 70-odd smilies....I know it's pretty good now, but it could use just a little tweaking....notable popular smilies that should be there are (or ), and ...heck, even isn't there readily available....

Joben>what is that "orange" smiley ( ) supposed to convey?....I've been wondering that since the first time I ever seen it....

edit...I've got about 8 US bucks in my paypal account....you can have it LD, but in return I would like this http://smilies.jeeptalk.org/cwm/cwm/freak3.gif...and possibly the Quagmire smiley....naw, forget about Quagmire, I'd get sick of it pretty quick...just this http://smilies.jeeptalk.org/cwm/cwm/freak3.gif for 8 US bills.....I know it isn't a lot, but that's like 12.50 to me....that's almost 2 packs of smokes just for this http://smilies.jeeptalk.org/cwm/cwm/freak3.gif....

Keep the weapon ones, just for the heretige of the forums, it's members of this forum that made these, weather they still post or not.

I dont see any use for the enemy ones, and I'm not sure that members created them.

The Misc ones should stay. I use them occasionally, some of them aren't found anywhere else, which is cool.

Keep the weapons- us folk in the gaming forums use them quite a bit. The rest are pretty useless though.

Heh, that one with the shotgun and charging werebull always cracks me up...

I say that the only ones that are useful are the miscellaneous smilies.

I'd say keep the misc and the weapon ones since they can be useful (especially misc ones), but I don't see quite a use for the Serious Sam ones.
Honestly I can't remember using any of these for a long time, but they mihgt come in handy sometimes!

[EDIT]
Hey, wonder why I never used this one :sawed:

I only voted for keeping the miscelleneous ones. I figure we gotta keep some smilies that are Sam related and the Bomb logo smilies aren't too intrusive.
As far as the other ones go, they were fun when they were new, but I have no feeling one way or another about keeping them or not so I will just go with whatever the majority wants.

Why the pangs though to want to get rid of them? Are they taking up too much space in the smilie thread and to make room for the new ones? Not that I care if they are taken out, I am just curious.

I really only use the about six of the emoticon ones anyway. and sometimes
A, E, I, O, U, and sometimes Y.

Keep the weapon smilies. The sam smilies were cool when they were first added but now they are hardly used. I canít remember the last time Iíve used them.

Keep the flamethrower. It can be very useful at times (well, at least I think it can be, even if I don't use it...)

But yeah, the enimies should be gone (thoguh I say keep the bighead around, it really should be used more).
