    Dunno if this has been posted anywhere else but...

    Isn't it going over the top a tad to limit us to the use of 3 smilies? I want more! I need more! Otherwise I can't express myself properly. :mad:

    If you mean per-post, then it's totally adequate. No-one needs to smile, frown or clap more than once per-post anyway.

    Umm...says who? You sound like a friggin' member of the post gestapo!

    "You vill not smile more dan 3 times in a post or ve vill cut off your balls!"

    The limit used to be 8 smilies per post and I don't see what cutting the limit down to 3 will accomplish.

    i want more, what happens if i quote a post which has 3 smilies in, i cannot remove the smilies from the original post as that would be wrong. And if the quite was funny, i would like to show my emotion using a smilie which i cannot do because of the "only use 3 a post"

    Honestly, what's the point in having it extended beyond 3?

    Expressing yourself can be done with words too y'know.

    Also it looks kinda shit(Not to mention pointless) when some random newbie comes along, and puts in 8 clappies/smilies/flamies in a row.

    it will also look kinda shit when a random newbie just spams or do other stupid stuff. Thats what mods are for. Seriously I have hardly seen people truly abuse smilies on any forum (well there exists "smiley art", but that is also on where they allow spam and have absolutly no limit to smileys :p).

    I use smilies to show people how I meant a certain line(and it is more precise and faster than words are, as otherwise why do we have face expressions if we can do it with words), so they dont have to guess (or less) how I meant it. Besides the smiley limit is actually a limit to the img tag iirc, so you can only post 3 images now at a time, which is something a lil on the short side I think.

    10 like it was on game is probably short enough.

    Ch3tan I aer teh win!!

    3 is fine.

    Really dont need pages full of smilies if the limit is increased.

    Atleast I havent seen them, so I doubt they existed and the limit was 10 there afaik.

    what Xane is trying to say is that this is incorrect - the limit is to smilies only, not images.
    I shall now demonstrate!


    Anyway, I cant see any need to ever need more than 3 smilies to one post.

    If you look up and down those rows of smileys they appear to be moving, quite disturbing really.
