    Here's a few possibilities, in order of how much I like them. These were the best fantasy ones I could find quickly on this one site, but there's other sites too. I think you might be able to use more than one group. In fact there's surprisingly little overlap between all four of these groups.

    Dragon Emoticons | 18.435 MSN Smileys
    Sketched Morte Emoticons | 18.435 MSN Smileys
    Wizards Multicoloured Emoticons | 18.435 MSN Smileys
    Lord Of The Rings Emoticons | 18.435 MSN Smileys

    The only issue with those is thatA) they are all animated which takes a ton of server room and B) They don't have a wide range of emotions, they are cute but that we have already.

    The Dragons do kinda look like frogs don't they :) Again cute, but not helpful in getting ones point or tone of voice across.

    Hey guys,

    I'm not sure as to what you are looking for. As you already know, we do have emoticons installed here:

    Smilies - Mythic Scribes Forums

    Are you asking for more emoticons to be added, covering an even larger range of emotions?

    I had posted this as part of the report-conflict thread where people were asking for more emoticons. I don't use them much anymore, but I do think the selection here is pretty small. I think a good range is two to three times the number we have. Someone suggested fantasy themed emoticons, so I looked a few up.

    BD, the problem with the limited selection of smilies here is that they do not help convey a "tone" This is something others as well as myself have stated many times in this and other threads.
    If there were a larger selection of smilies then perhaps some of the miscomunications could be avoided.
    Someone said forgive me I can't remember whom that they chose their smilies more carefuly then they do their words. I do this as well. To helps get a point across when words can be misunderstood. And I'm gonna agree with Dover. The pickin's round here are sadly slim.

    OK. I've never been a fan of emoticons, but I see your point.

    I fancy myself a graphic designer, and developed the graphics and aesthetics of this site. Personally, I love the emoticons that we are using currently, as I feel that they nicely compliment the site's design.

    So we should find more emoticons that match or at least compliment the style of those which we are currently using.

    No one is saying you don't have a wonderful site. You do! What some are saying is there is a need that should be addressed.

    There are millions (litteraly) of free web forum smilies for you and the other powers that be select from.
    Mix match or make your own as you and the powers that be see fit. We can't tell anyone what to do. At the end of the day it is just a suggestion. Thanks for a great site BTW.

    Oh don't worry, Blue Lotus.

    I knew that you weren't questioning the beauty of my design choices. I was simply clarifying that I was searching for smilies that fit well with our aesthetics.

    In any case, I believe that I've found some that will work. Check out the new and improved smilie listing:

    Smilies - Mythic Scribes Forums

    There should be enough options now to suit all occasions.
    :Biggrin:

    I have to agree. Some might take offense to this one. Unless this sign is referring to something other than the obvious.
