You're welcome. This was supposed to be a PDA, not a computer.

Fluffy_banana offered to make Star Control smilies earlier and made a batch of four. Since our test forum went belly-up I haven’t been able to test them out, but I will eventually. They were captains portraits shrunk down and while pretty, I’m, not sure they convey emotion that well. Sure, we all know an Utwig is sad but a tiny version of the portrait doesn’t communicate sadness, to me at least.

So if you’re offering to make some smilies as well we’ll be happy to have them. I can stick you in the current smilie correspondence if you PM me an email address.

If you want to make the smilies starcon-themed that badly but can't work out how to do it, you could always make them blue.

Emotion would be hard to convey in the micro 15x15 size, but if 35x35 (like the afro smile) is acceptable than it should suffice.

Try doing a couple of 35*35 ones, let's see what that looks like.

About the changes to the forum, what about the "edited" notification? On most forums I know it is a standart thing. Was it just not implemented here or intentionally removed?

I'll look into it once the test forum is back up.

That's what I've done so far.
There will be more and animated, but can't tell how long it'll take.

Looking good! I'm looking forward to a somewhat expanded set.

I have almost no free time lately, so progress is next to nonexistent...
