16px x 16px Smiles + Post Icons Pack. (W.I.P)

I'm working on a pack of miniature smilies (16px by 16 px) along with integrating post icons which will result in a mega pack. I'm just wondering if there's an interest in such a small sized smiley+post icon pack and possibly to get some suggestions.

Preview Below. Suggestions on post Icons are welcomed, I plan on adding support and other icons to convey designers/coders/ etc so other suggestions will be considered and implemented into the final pack.

I'll partially agree with you, but I'll put that down to our own personal preference for preferring the larger smilies.

I'm thinking more of the people that prefer to have their text formatting not broken as much. if they used their larger variants which was a focus point on the last smiley pack I submitted in here for a critique.

I like the larger variants but don't enjoy the text formatting broken.I like the larger variants but don't enjoy the text formatting broken.I like the larger variants but don't enjoy the text formatting broken.I like the larger variants but don't enjoy the text formatting broken.

You see where I am coming from. Some people hate this. And much prefer the following.

Wow, Shelley! That's actually the thing I hate most. When you see a post, with a long paragraph of text, and in it has like 10 smilies that make the whole post look like crap.

I'd actually be interested in these greatly.

I am also looking for post icons. Here's a few ideas for them: A bug post icon (for if you're reporting bugs - obviously), some of the normal ones, one with an exclamation mark, one with a question mark, a new poll one to match, and just a few smiley icons I guess.

If you ever did that and released it here, please PM me and I'd download them instantly! I love your work Shelley.

I already Designed a bug (insect) related post icon a minute or so after I submitted this preview amongst others. I''ll also design support related icons too. Anymore suggestions you think for post icons feel free to suggest. afterall, some post icons are best suit to be used by the staff so I'm taking this onboard and with post icons using the usergroup system I can design post icons used by only staff.

I'll update the preview a little later with what I have so far.

I'll be releasing a separate animated pack though the pack will be in the gif format.

EDIT: UPDATED/ADDED PREVIEW IN THE FIRST POST IN THIS THREAD.

That is a very good demo you have given there and you are entirely correct in saying that larger smileys break up the text formatting (if used in between) while smaller ones do not.

While that is undeniable, I think the reason we use smiley's is not for some practical purpose but for fun. And IMHO small smilies are no fun even if they are "practical" It is difficult to even make out what the smiley is trying to convey.

I would rather use one larger smiley at the end than ten small ones in the text. But as you said its personal preference.

Cheers.

A preference that i share with you on. But I like to cater for everyone which from the last thread I created similiar to this had that very issue highlighted so It's mainly for others benefits than my own as I won't be using the smilies myself.

When the full pack is complete only then will I release them otherwise I'm back and forth uploading, modifying attachments adding icons which is not the way I work or submit stuff.

I'm flying through these so it won't be too long.

Wow, Shelley! Great set!

If you're willing to do a custom one, I'm about to open a gaming forum too, so how about a tiny controller?

I could include that but can't promise that I will simply because I want the icons to be as generic as they can be with the most useful icons that people will use and benefit from. Maybe in specialized themed addon packs would I create such icons.

Never say never though.
