    Default I Pledge! to be a servant to JeffLebowski!

    Our benevolent leader, JeffLebowski, has either grown tired of my antics or has finally heard the cries of the masses (or both).

    He has tasked me with Operation: Smilie. I am compiling a set of smilies/emoticons to add to our existing catalog (yes, I get the heady tasks. Organizing charity drives or group get-togethers is apparently beneath my skill set).

    I am posting this to the group because I think it would be fun to have a few school-specific smilies in the catalog. We need a couple of BYU ones, Utah ones, OU, Oregon, Texas, and I will take care of the SC ones.

    If you have one or two that you think would be fun to add and that are reflective of your personality, feel free.

    Please keep in mind that this is not meant to be a huge task. Please limit the smilies you send. To make it easier, simply reply to this post with the smilies you wish to submit. I will compile them offline and take care of the rest.

    As overlord and head mod, JeffLebowski has final say in what stays or goes, so be prudent in what you submit (this warning is mostly for UteStar).

    Question for JeffLebowski: although I am not encouraging it, is there any fundamental administrative difference between adding 10 smilies and adding 150 smilies? Or is it simply a matter of click and save?

    So post away and I will compile. I am leaving for Dallazz in a little bit, so won't access CUF until later tonight. Let's put a cap on this project. Submit any smilies by tomorrow night. If you submit them later than that, I will deny that I ever knew you and spread rumors behind your back.

    PS There is a slight possibility that I misread JeffLebowski's PM, but I have already deleted it. I think he has tasked me with Operation:Smilie. It is also possible that I misread and that he actually asked me to get involved with Operation: Smile, which donates medical services to aid children with cleft/palate needs living in third-world countries. Either way, CUF wins!

    EDIT: I have always wanted to say this: JeffLebowski, creekster, and pelagiu$....would you mind stickying this?

    I am not sure if there is a limit. Currently we have 11. I am guessing that the palette of smilies on the right side of the edit window will simply grow to accommodate the smilies installed in our vbulletin system. I don't know that we want 150, but I am here to serve the masses. We can experiment and add/remove as necessary.

    guys, this is exactly what I don't want to do. If you want a smilie added, post it in this thread. I don't want to go to links and find ones that I think the group may enjoy.

    happy hunting!

    I did a little research. I can add the smilies one at a time. For each smilie, I need the following (in addition to the file):

    Name
    Text to replace

    Example:

    Confused
    : confused: (without the space)

    I want a super angry smiley. One that is even more angry than the one we have. Can you find one like that for me? TIA.

    Does anyone know where DJRoss is? He had a sweet catalog of smileys.

    well, now we know how TD spends his entire workday online: he passes all his responsibilities onto the next guy.

    Here are some similes:

    As strong as an ox.
    As cool as ice.
    As undefeated as the 2008 Utes.
    As silly as the flag of Ohio.
    Funny like a clown.
    As awesome as Solon.

    Anyone should feel free to use these in their posts.

    Ummm, most of those are good, but the 'hookem' horns don't scale so well. At that size they look like a 'marital aid.'

    After the recent name change.. shouldn't your sentence read: "I like 'borg' one"?

    Be honest, it would be to hide the stitchmarks.
