Smilies Anonymous

Ahem...Hello, my name is wren and I'm guilty of abusing smilies. It all started on a not so long ago forum that had a huge selection of small but cute smilies. I went from putting one or two smilies in my posts to hunting through all of the themes and selections so that I could put as many smilies as possible. Soon, the small smilies were not enough, and I began to look for bigger smilies. I found one smilie site but the smilies were not very good and were hard to use. Then, I found friends who enjoyed smilies as much as I did. We found a smilie site with big, wonderful smilies for all occasions and topics. I couldn't stop myself...the smilies began to fill up my posts everyday. I wanted more to choose from...they were so fun and helped set the tone of each post. In every thread, I couldn't help myself, and smilies began to dominate my posts. I spent lots of time looking for just the right smilies to complement my message...and now, here I am...lonely for my smilies that won't work on my new forum. Going cold turkey is hard...I keep breaking out in a sweat when I type a message and cannot look for MY smilies.

Alas, the select few smilies that come with this forum look like...small alien smilies...and are, well to be tactful,not very attractive smilies. So sad, but true. :cry: The sad smilie is not even blue. Only the one called "Mr. Green" :mrgreen: who was known as "biggrin" on the former forum and the blushing smilie look like smilies I have known and loved. Oh, the withdrawals...and the meanie-looking smilies...they make me afraid because they have weird shapes...

There is a consolation...I now have an avatar and a signature line...and beautiful, easy to use font colours with bold and italics...and I feel the need to use them all, and hunt for new avatars and signature lines to keep on file for future lists, and hunt for abbreviations that will stand in for smilies...I cannot be cured...Waaaaaa.....PLEASE GIVE ME BACK MY SMILIES....

Did not think we were allowed smilies in the posts...or do we just have to be careful not to have too many?

Not too sure what the Spices verdict is. Image I do know the FAQ of the PHP forum is not to many. So many do's and dont's to get used to.
