I just redid the current misoutlined smilies and the "???" and "::nerdy::" smilies (which IMO looked rather low-quality). I dunno, I just thought maybe if someone made fixed versions they admins would finally fix it. *shrugs*

I also made, as you can see, a hive smiley. *shrug*

    Many people have fixed them (including myself), but the admins are too lazy to use them.

    Just politely PM the moderators of the forum and ask for their opinion.. if they like, they'll probably add them to the smiley list.

    Who was it who was responsible for the smilies? I mean, which mod do I need to PM?

    Erm... JJ, generally, the abuse of the report function for advertisements leads to a thread's lock...

    Fox: thanks for the effort. Unfortunately, I do not have FTP access myself, and I'm told modifying the smilies is a true pain to change (contrary to your opinion of us, we aren't that lazy, Jimmeh tounge.gif). I'll have a few words with the right people.

    Then go hit Talesin with a brick until he adds them. Or falls unconscious. Preferably the former.

    Let's all go and collect bricks to hit Talesin with, so then he will eventually update the smileys. I really would like to get rid of the annoying white pixels around them...

    Adding is VERY easy. I've got my own boards, and believe me- easy easy easy.

    And replacing the smilies SHOULD be pretty easy too, just need access to the server.

    Yes, and even most admins don't have that access. However, I used sneaky-bat workaround #7. They should be updated now, at least the ones that were up there on the front page.

    Fix the icons at the top while you're at it... I made some fixed versions a while back for another forum, and here's what they look like.

    Sorry, I don't have access to that portion... smileys have a custom upload and edit interface. Those icons would have to be uploaded by someone with FTP access, which is approximately... four people. Maybe. And I'm not one of 'em, nor do I know fully who they are, excepting maybe Comprox, and obviously Flayra.

    Omg the hive5.gif smiley is here!

    YYou have saved me 2 seconds to type hive5.gif .

    but it took over 1 min to fully type this out and really cancelled out the useful blabberingness I have going on!

    I PMd Nem in IRC about it like months ago :(
    and emailed joev
    nothing was done :(
    Q: Is your goal to make everything picked the same amount of times? (from j.walsh)
    A: I don't think about it that way exactly. Sure it's good if there is a nice distribution and that is something to work towards, but really the goal in DotA's development is, first and foremost, to make the gameplay quality the best it can be. It is the combination of all the heroes, items and mechanics together that makes DotA what it is and not the individual elements alone. Sometimes that means certain things are carefully adjusted to be more frequent than others, sometimes it doesn't, but ultimately the main judge of a game's quality is not in some artificial balance metric, but in the overall gameplay quality and depth that it has.
