I am in one of them spells where I crave something creative to do, and this is it today.

I hereby submit one I've brought into size/style conformity, and an older one I ain't rejiggered and don't intend to, but like and am considering installing.

Here's the last of the above-the-reply-box set redone, and barring requests or some inspiration striking, I think I'm finished making smilies for now.

These are all fairly straightforward re-workings for size and general constancy, and not that creative, but I felt that stylistically, it needed doing.

Well, I think I can claim that the default lineup above the Reply Box is much improved, at least for consistency and organization.  I might do some organizing in the Popup yet, as that doesn't mess up other sets and isn't a big chore.  Notions for how it ought to be ordered are welcome.

A real benefit of building a site from the ground up is that some of the old hands would not like looking at my versions of certain favorites of theirs. 

All new or freshly-revised:

There is always an advantage to being involved in a project when it first starts. You get tons more autonomy to tinker around as there are less toes and other folks' "space" to avoid stepping on.

Though for forums, its a slow process. One guy I know who set up one for the Gulf South mini gamers ended up having to post news items for himself for a year or two before he ended up getting community. But, since the news items were really hard to get info on events in two states, he eventually got it. Of course, he is not making a living of it and still occasionally deals with nerd wars in his little niche from other groups.

I broke down and added another smilie today: ;sarc

This is an update of my very first smilie, unless ;notes; was first.

-sisko, I recall you being a big user of the woohoo! smilie; should we have a look at adding that, and the companion piece I modded from it, the panic smilie?

Anyone else feels like it's time to fix the faction graphics bug?

Nice work, BU! It was a really nice surprise to see all the good smilies that had been added during my absence.

It was a lot of work, but I like for us to have our own personality that way.  Them there above the Reply box's a bunch or smilies unique to AC2 - until such time as someboday steals them for somewhere else.  The pop-up's still a zoo, mind, and unlikely to change in that.

* Random quote

As the Americans learned so painfully in Earth's final century, free flow of information is the only safeguard against tyranny. The once-chained people whose leaders at last lose their grip on information flow will soon burst with freedom and vitality, but the free nation gradually constricting its grip on public discourse has begun its rapid slide into despotism. Beware of he who would deny you access to information, for in his heart he dreams himself your master.
~Commissioner Pravin Lal 'U.N. Declaration of Rights'
