It was confusing to have every instance of Jinghao replaced with my face, and when you quoted me, my face would break the quote. And since the icon of my face was far wider than the average clickable smiley, it stretched the smiley box wider than it is natural.

Hence I renamed it to :jinghao: and made it not clickable. I have also removed the even larger smiley.

Enjoy my face.

I was thinking there should be an option for it, sort of like when you upload an avatar. The images should be fairly small, so I don't think it'd take up too much space. As for my actual picture, I'd have to get on my laptop to find a good one, which I'll do later.

Oh, that would involve Jinghao's coding skills. I can put it up individually the old-fashioned way if you give me an image.

Alright, well, I'll wait for Jinghao's input first. This isn't anything I'm dying to have, but I thought the idea of personal smilies was cool.

Yeah, but I'm sure everyone won't want them. Shall we split off these posts then?

Can you make a :whatevertheusernameis: tag, where people can upload a small image to use as a smilie, and display it using the tag in that format?

That's impractical for anyone but the staff. If we have more than 10 active members, it will be a pain to keep the smileys updated.

I think he was suggesting having an automatic smilie thinger, like an upload box under the avatar upload that would automatically code it in.

Then that's chaos. What if my username is wave? Then if I type :wave:, it will become wave.gif, not my face.

That seems like it would be in the minority and fixable.

Here's a fix: Code so all of these smilies would be |wave| instead of : wave :. There's your fix.

And if wave becomes trough? Does it adjust? The posts are cached, so how would the images work?

How about :member-155: or :member-1: for Jinghao?

The number system is better, but harder for people to remember.

Hardly anyone really looks back at old topics here...

Still though, this seems too difficult.
