    Choice of default smilies?

    When I write a post I see 80 smilies jumping, dancing, shagging, getting flushed down the toilet, wearing a ninja balaclava etc below the text box, but I can never find the ones I want. Some of the smilies in the default list I've never seen anybody use so I'm wondering whether the box of default smilies could be shortened slightly so that:
    a) the page doesn't take so long to load
    b) I can find the commonly-needed ones (laugh, smile, sad etc.) without having to look through all the bizarre less-used ones

    The bizarre ones will still appear in the pop-up window of 'More' smilies so people won't lose out.

    The other day I was trying to find a simple :oops: smiley but couldn't. I think I spotted it once but after that I couldn't find it again. It was strangely irritating!

    Any of the admins feel like helping me out?

    It would help if the things appeared in some set order rather than the order of their popularity like it currently seems to do... Its a right royal pain in the arse playing hunt the smilie everytime you post a new thread/reply!

    OK, i've set it to display a few more, and when you click the quick smilie option it displays more there too.

    I think this is going to be as good as it gets as there's no option to "order" the smilies.....

    if you want an oops: one, let me know and I'll add the code to a certain smilie
