Thread: Cull More Faces!

  1. #41
    Okay I'll grant you that we have a few duplicate smileys and I'm certainly okay with sorting the smileys in the order of popularity. That way those that don't mind searching for the appropriate smiley (read those two protesters you're referring too) can still use the smileys they want. (Or we can paste the smileys on a word document- like we both did) MUAHAHAHAHA!

    I wonder if we could sort the Smileys as well... hmm...
    I think the 'overflow' theory holds water. Today, at the latest tomorrow, I will go through the units now posted and come up with sets of obvious duplicates. This will certainly cover the 1/4 anyway.

    Thanks. The issue now has world historical validation.

    Forget the procrastination this was easier than I thought. This is the general idea on a 'once through' not meant as final and definitive.

    Negative

    Positive =D>

    Of less than obvious use (Bishop?)

    To be continued, I suppose. I suddenly could not get the second page. As per the overflow theory i noticed that a few of the items were repeated in the selection that was posted. (??)

    Edit:

    Enough already. Granted that this is overkill but it would be nice to have a stable array of the basics. That way a good variety would be both available and in a predictable location. The weeding out would be somewhat arbitrary and may not amout to much at all.

    I'm more of a fan of having the basic six emotions first (similar to Ajax), then adding general groups after... maybe we can even sort by artistic style, since it seems that there are two major styles of Smiley ( or )

    It's a necessity. There are over 300 emoticons, which means a lot of categories or a lot per category, or even just have a massive "Other" category. Either way, it is still a lot to visually sort through.

    One step at a time. I think we need a target # and then it will be a matter of trimming down to that point. If we had a 'use count' on each item it would be easy, we could just shout 'democracy' and remove the less popular. (Especially effective since no one was warned in advance and thus would be unable to sway the 'voting'.)

    If you can provide an exact 'now' and 'goal' count i would be willing to present a tentative cull proposal for anyone to look at.

    My sentiment exactly. First, I want to just get rid of these initial ~70, wait and see if anyone has any issues. If in a month nothing arises, we'll start the cull again. It's a subjective exercise since Smiley's are a matter of personal preference and I doubt everyone on the forum has looked at this thread (they may have a few they like that they want saved). There are another ~30 emoticons that were not listed to be saved, but I wanted to be conservative with this initially/not boggle everyone who tried to read the original post.

    If you want take the initiative to drawing up basic categories, that would definitely go long way in organizing the Smiley's.

    And that's the point. Chances are there is a smiley that somebody here might want to use. Believe it or not I don't use every single smiley (and of course there are obvious duplicates) but as you noted, who knows what someone else may want to use. If you don't like smileys, don't use them.

    And just out of curiosity don't we all have more important things to do that worrying about eliminating (or saving) smileys? Just sayin

    Will do. I will be on line again tomorrow and have a division posted in the afternoon. (EST)

    I doubt everyone on the forum has looked at this thread (they may have a few they like that they want saved).
    When I saw this my instinct was 'act quickly' but I will proceed with caution.
