Lame smilies

Not a tip of the day, I think I am not going to manage to post those daily. I was hoping that others would also be posting tips.

But an observation, the default smilies on a few forum are really lame and ancient.

I'm planning to change the set people get when signing on, to something a little more "with it"..

Any ideas on this front? Does your forum have a great core set?

36 smilies in a pak file, 7 of which are the crappy old ones and there's a few extras that can be in the contrib folder for the pak name that you chose

most are in png for bb3, not sure if bb2 does png smilies?

Any other offers?

I am keen really for the core 20 smilies to be fresh and consistent, but probably for there only to be 20 in the set. So people can then add more.

My forum currently has over 400 smilies, 300 of which are non-football related, and out of those 300 i would say the 20 most popular are;

               
               
               
               

They are the most commonly used out of these smilies >> http://footballitalia.myfastforum.org/posting.php?mode=smilies

Edit: actually there are about 30 xmas smilies aswell, so really the 20 is picked from about 270 'normal' smilies.

Thanks

I'm thinking maybe bigger and less animated...

Sorry to be fussy but a change like this will be long term.

I spent a lot of time culling the available smilies for my forum. They are family safe (no implied or explicit vulgarity) and they have a distinctive religious tenor. So for forums with these goals in mind, they might be worth a look.

I don't know how to export all my smilies so as to post them here, however.

Was unaware that anyone could post a tip of the day in the thread that you started. Good to know now!

I'm a huge fan of koloboks http://www.en.kolobok.us and one thing they do is have different versions for light and dark forum backgrounds - it might be worth having 2 sets of basic smileys?
