I am pleased to announce that, due to popular demand, we have now added a stack of smilies to the phpBB default. Instead of there being only the 22 default smilies to select, there are now more than 100 to choose from.

To see the full range, simply click on "View more Emoticons" when posting a message.

You'll find something for pretty much every imaginable occasion, along with a few rather unique ones...!

Loo

Enjoy using them, but remember to use them sparingly... (since posts which over-use smilies will be edited or removed entirely).

Thanks and kind regards

Aaron

Let's see, you added 100 smilies, because everyone wanted them...
But you don't want them "overused"......
Now, what is "overused"?
One per post? We'll never see all of them.
Ten per post? What the HELL difference does it make!

You people must be bureaucrats. Get a job with the government. You ant the forum to grow (supposedly). Well let it grow. The more complex you try to make the rules, the more work it is to moderate the forums, the less fun they'll be, etc. In IBM's heydey days, they had a good saying - "THINK".

Well, that's my two cents.

John

The rules are not complex. We don't allow advertising other than in sig files, or if you are directly answering someone's question.

With regard to smilies, I assume you are referring to this thread. It's plain for all to see what is and isn't excessive. There's no hard and fast rule, but you overstepped the line. A smilie or two - or perhaps even three in longer posts - is usually more than ample.

In any case, it's not so much the overuse of smilies that is the main problem with your posts. It's the fact that you've repeatedly posted advertisements across not just these forums, but also across Aardvark Sport and Aardvark Travel.

You've decided to contest our rules on more than one occasion, and are doing so publicly once more here, and so I'm banning you from all the forums. You were given fair warning. Rolling Eyes

Further to our correspondence, John... your ban has been lifted. I am trusting you to use the forums responsibly now, so please don't let me down.

Aaron

Not really new, though, are they? You've dug up a post which is more than 5 years old....
