We've used them ever since they arrived on this site, however we never talked about 'em. Let's show some respect to the smilies and talk a bit about them, ok?

E.g.: which movies could you associate with which smilie? Here's my opinion:

:cool: definitely "The Matrix": probably the coolest film ever made!

:D Well, I laughed harder with "O brother, where art thou" than with any other comedy (including "What about Bob?", "A fish called Wanda", "Dumb & dumber" and any Chaplin-film ever made)

:mad: On the 6th of August this may very well be T3 - if it doesn't turn out to be as good as (or half as good as) the instant classics T1 and T2!

Any other suggestions, maybe please?

bye for now

:o :mad:

These two were strategically colored (or should I say re-colored because if you remember, the initial smilies were all yellow). There was a serious discussion in mod's board about the differences in shades of red between anger and embarassment. Too funny. :D

Come to think of it: have you (or any other Mod) thought about giving the present smilies any brothers or sisters for the near future? E.g.: a throwing-up, a loving, a sleeping, a firing (it is a Lara Croft and therefore a pretty hostile site, right? or an exploding smilie?

that'd be cool and, as you know, changes are good. Changes are necessary! You could even make a poll out of it? What smilie would you prefer the most?

Yes. Unfortunately, powers that be failed to implement them.

I loved the smilies back at Tombraiders.com. Couldn't we get some Lara related ones for the TR forums?

You're right! It's supposed to be animated, but I think someone saved it wrong somewhere along the way.

Deek, that is an awe inspiring smilie! :D
