We got some new fancy buttons for posting which are useful, but I feel like emoticons are missing. I thought that maybe we could use the ones from stamps, but since some of them are unlocks it wouldn't be fair. Here are some examples that I made myself

- Happy
- Sad
- Confused
- Angry

Also special thanks to  Admer456 avatar for posting his own :





The emoticon list will also be updated. Unlockable emoticons? What do you think?

Edit : They will not be automatically chosen when you type something like :) or :( . There will be a new button ( or an emoticon inserter like Admer said ) which will open a list of available emoticons. Thanks for mentioning!

    Emoticons aren't actually good for posts.
    Emoticons in chat would be nicer. ✌️  ✌️ ✌️
    Pretty egocentric aren't you? I mean it's completely fine if you dislike the idea, but saying what's ' good ' or 'bad' without providing a reason in a subjective matter doesn't make much sense.

    In other words your post sounds like " My preference is better than yours because I say so ".

    How is this unfair?
    Because if I included those images as default suggestions, then the idea would look like it basically enables you to use those images for free while others spend points to unlock them as stamps. It's not like people can't use them now, but I wanted to come up with something new.
    In any case, I don't like the idea. I have personal preferences not to have emoticons in comment section. If it's for chat - it might be ok as long as they fit site style.
    That's an interesting note. What if you could choose to enable/disable emoticons in your submissions?

    Sure.
    Hmm, but let's make them more banana-like:

    (I made my own, yes)
    After all, this is GameBanana.

    In going with the style of the site, it should be pixel art.

    I have a relationship of love/hate towards emoticons/emojis

    I remember using them in messenger, What a good times :)
    But now I hate it because of its misuse, or use exaggerated/Spam ex: XXXXXDDDDDXDXDX

    I also hate whatsapp version
    For their use spam, and their misleading use.
    Many youtube videos, internet pages (like blogs) use it to counter misleading content.

    I do not want GB to be associated with For that type of content, And much less that it looks!

    Same could be said about stamps. But I appreciate the fact that you took the time to post why you are undecided. Feedback is always welcome.

    edit : Here's an example that happened today. I made a long review about a map today and someone thought that it would be funny if he stamped my post as " wtf? ". link

    Wow dude, these look pretty good! Thanks for contributing.

    P.S.They should be optional. E.g. there should be an "Emoticon Inserter" where you can choose the emoticons.I just don't like it when my :) or :P gets replaced with a small, yellow ball with a smile on it.
    Oops, that was actually what I meant but forgot to mention it. I will edit the submission.
