BRING BACK THE OLD SMILEYS!
« on: March 15, 2008, 10:52:14 PM »
What's with these new smiley's, anyway?  With the exception of the additional smiley's we didn't have before (such as the nerd and the Grim Reaper), I find the new smiley's much harder to read than the old ones.

Which new smileys? 
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

^^ The smileys were changed back to the old set so soon after I started this thread that I wonder if the change was even a response to my complaint.

The ones you're referring to have no images linked to their commands.  If they did, then you would need to put colons - ":" before and after each word with no spaces. 

When you put spaces, it looks like this - : police :

When you don't, it looks like this - :police:
