Pumpkin I've received so many tubmail complaints lately about the state of the emotes page.

I think Original is a bit big right now. Why not split it thus:

Original (emote): Log in to see images!

Original (fwz): Log in to see images!

I like this much better .

Trying to create drama to drum up the ratings by any means necessary!

As to Ron Paul:

Troll: Log in to see images! etc.

Emo: Log in to see images! etc.

Camwhore: Log in to see images!

Although I disagree that they should be separated purely by being original . I think its better to have ones in the same style grouped together . Putting together ones that look the same makes it easier than putting together ones that express the same idea, because there are so many ideas, but it’s easier to think, ok I kind of know what that one emote looks like, it should be in the category of ones that look similar to it .

Perhaps there can be two lists or three lists? One like mine, one for clbum specific and another for emotion specific?

Could we do both, i.e. the mod who approves the smilies would then give each smilie categories or keywords and whenever (ie Log in to see images!

there are few clbum specific ones, unless you try to force them into those categories when they weren’t intended for that . Log in to see images!

It also doesn’t need to be nearly that complicated, I think there should be one instance of an emote, and that’s it . No need to try to constantly second guess peoples thoughts as to finding the emote they want .

nah coding in keywords is good and pretty easy, if you’re building categories anyway.

not complicated to make, messy to look at

I don’t want to have to have a search page added just to find emotes. We’ll have to try and get the categories right is all. I actually do agree very very much that there should be a “Basic” category that has the Log in to see images! and such that are normal smileys. That’s the only category that I think should be set right now.

Or we could do it by basic emotions: happy, sad, angry, etc. The problem is that we have a ton that can’t be clbumified by emotions.

Wait wait, if there was some sort of functionality added where we knew the name of the emote but not the &blabityblabity we could put it in our post without taking time to search, that would be good.

I haven't seen a bad idea that I didn't like.

I don’t really have a problem with the way the emotes are displayed now. Dividing them up based on a couple people’s ideas of what the divisions are would make it more difficult.

You think a giant page with them all in a single column where you have to keep scrolling up and down until you find what you were looking for because you scrolled past it the first time is perfectly fine. Ok.

Even if they weren’t put into categories, just making a normal table with columns would be good. Even grouping them by color would be good. Anything would be better.

also that list is just gonna keep growing.

Could we select the emotes we want to show next to our post page, also? it would be nice if my favorite emotes showed there.

i absolutely love this idea

I would want that, but only if it’s both. I use certain emotes more than others, but I do need the others sometimes.

Well, spf357 really rocks.

What 1337lol said, I’d be happy if all they did was a 3 or 4 column table so it’s not a big one you have to scroll up and down. Categorization would be cool, but it’d take longer.

It doesn’t have to.

Remember the contest CZ held a little while back, asking people to catalogue forums for episode 3? Why not run the same thing here, asking people to suggest a tag for an emoticon? 5BP prize, 1 entry every 10 tags. That way you’d have every emote tagged within about a day, and each would have a range of search-able keywords.
