    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? :weight_lift2:

    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
