Yeah, we just don't have the "drunk" one.

Also "Piss off," which means "Go away."

Yeah - we just add the preposition.

American English: "I'm pissed".
British English: "I'm pissed off".

Brits would almost always interpret the first as being "I'm drunk".


Also reminding me of a scene in The Goodies (60s British comedy):

Tim Brooke-Taylor: Pay no attention to him, he's pissed.
Graeme Garden: Oh, has he?

Worm Mad wrote:Pissed has various meanings, all equally delightful.
"Wanna go out an' get pissed?" - Want to get drunk?
"He really pissed me off!" - He really annoyed/upset me
"Back in a 'mo. Gotta take a piss." - Back in a minute, I need to urinate.

Pissed all over, pissed away, pissing into the wind, piss poor/weak as piss, pissing contest... so versatile. :D

Can you make the forum accept more than one code for more smilies? I'm too used to typing :p (lower-case) rather than :P (upper-case).

Ok the new smilies are in place, so this thread is gonna make even less sense. :P I also added some extra codes as requested.

Aww, no fancy anti aliasing. :( Does it really accept only GIFs? That's pretty silly.

Also:

":evil:" should be this: :x
Guess I'll make you a grinning one for ":mrgreen:" as well.

Hmm I didn't notice they got GIF'd, I'll see if I can fix it.

Also Mr. Green is an internet classic, so you can leave it as it is unless you wanna make your own rendition.

Edit: Ok the smilies have been restored to their PNG glory.

I see a forum with community moderators offers several advantages, including the ability to change its emoticons easily at any given time.

I've also got a few suggestions. Please consider exchanging them for the current current ones because of how much better they sincerely are.

Here's some examples from my critically acclaimed, price-winning and entirely non-public computix gallery:

: cool :
Image

: cheerful :
Image

:3
Image

[hypnotoad]I created this. It is mine. You will not question this. You will forget you have ever seen this emoticon in your life before.[/hypnotoad]
Image


I'm rather serious about this, please don't hurt my feelings

Ugh.

A couple of them are okay though. But I think we should explore alternatives if possible. Maybe even make some new ones. Somebody around here must still be talented.

These three are unspeakably stupid-looking. So yes, I agree.


Past Zero and Palsma are still not okay with it somehow

I see you got PNG emotes to work, nice! :D

Here's an updated, uh, cross smiley along with its evil counterpart. Image Image
Any better?

Also, Mr. Green. Image


Should I draw a :3 one? And yeah feel free to request more of those. :P

Excellent.

Depends. How much would you hate me for saying yes?

Nice work so far! I never did learn Mr Green's back story :mrgreen:

If you want to make a few more, how about:

:X Image (hold back from saying anything/wish you hadn't said something)

Or a facepalm Image

When I said the cross one I meant the one second from the right on the bottom row: Image

The old PHPBB version, and your replacement, both look annoyed/cross, which is fine. My concern was that inyour replacement, his eyebrows and eyes were one thing and not separate.

Your updated replacement doesn't have eyebrows now, so now it just looks upset.

I like your evil one. That's perfect. You should use the eyes from that on your annoyed/cross smiley.

Very well done for all of your work!
