    So, I've been lingering here for a while, and I've been leeching (sorry [​IMG]) awesome stuffs from here, the best example would be Darth Nemesis' Soma Bringer Translation Patch, another thing would be Hadrian's WiiDS releases for the week (information is priceless guys)

    So what's the problem? The problem lies here: whenever we want to say "nice work!" what emoticon can we use?

    We have lots of emoticons, for PSP, for lol, hrth, and stuff, but when I wanna say nice work I can't express it with any emoticons.

    [​IMG] using this feels is not good enough, too many humor aspect, while I want to show respect
    [​IMG] of course, this is not good enough too, why am I laughing? Although it's understandable why
    [​IMG] I don't think this is the best, this one is used for close friends
    [​IMG] now THIS one, is perfect, except the PSP part, which makes it not good, it has thumbs up, shows real intention of "nice work"

    so, what I'm proposing is to have another emoticon, which is, that yaypsp (or yayds, or yaygba or whatever) with the handheld removed, it has thumbs up, which, in my opinion is the best one

    like this yes, I did the same thing too, take the PSP away from yaypsp and we're done [​IMG]

    What do you think? Respect deserves a smiley too

    Yours is cleaner, but the idea is the same [​IMG], yes, that kind of smiley is great I think.

    the smiley is here, and all we need is approval, what do the higher-ups think?

    We have a few "moderator related" smileys that serve double duty, including.
    [​IMG] for mischievousness
    [​IMG] for technical wisdom
    [​IMG] for Heckuva job, I approve!

    Sorry, Noitora, can't se that smiley, somehow ven after I reloaded 3 times [​IMG]

    At any rate, whatever icon is okay, as long as the idea is for that "nice work!" smiley, what we need now is the approval for the idea...

    Also, the tag can be :nice: I think

    Ah, sorry, didn't know there were others who thought just like me, the smiley was never implemented, so I dunno about it

    At any rate, what I need is the approval for the idea, the smiley is here, and to make one won't take more than 5 minutes. How about this higher-ups?

    There's no need to apologise [​IMG] . I guess mine never got approved because no admins ever replied to the topic [​IMG]
