wrong smiley picked for whistling

  • Why would you want to make the font-size small though?

    I can understand making a small font-size bigger, I did it with WBB 4.1 because too small. But making it smaller doesn't make sense. :P

    if you want to use smaller smilies the option is there anyway to create another smiley cat via ACP and stick another collection of smaller smilies in that separate from the main default ones. I did same with WBB 4.1 by creating another smiley category and uploading and listing all the xenforo ones in it. So there's no need to include two different smiley sets by default.

    There's no need for this big smileys. A smaller version would be perfekt for every font size. And no I do not plan to decrease the font size. But I consider this topic for admins who want.

  • No idea what you're talking about because you even created a "Whistling Smiley" from the EmojiOne pack to match the ones used. You also posted about WBB not adding a link for EmojiOne before - over them using the smilies?

  • To be honest, I am happy to see EmojiOne instead of what we see here.


    Exactly, I was replying to this above you said and it's just gone on and on... :rolleyes:

  • This seems like a sad tongue smiley or a beard smiley or an exhausted smiley to me. But definatley no tired smiley :D

  • WoltLab Burning Board currently uses what is known as Emoji One (Development). Which is completely free to use in paid developments (such as WoltLab) and royalty free. It's also the system default standard in Firefox and the up coming release of Microsoft Skype and Office (for those who have seent he preview release).


    Emoji One recognized that they could improve upon the current Emoji's (smilies) which is why they'll be updating them this month. You can see an example here

    I'm really looking forward to it, but unfortunately they give little to no information out. Guess I'll have to wait until the release and decide what to do with the smileys.

    I really hope you stick with Emoji One. They're quickly becoming the standard much in the same way that Font Awesome finally became commonly used.


    The only other top 2 popular Emoji's I can think of is Apple's and Twitter's, both you'd have to pay royalties for since your intentional use is associated with promotion of a paid development. And no, the free framework argument would not fly. Someone else made the exact same argument and Twitter had no problem suing them into oblivion.

    It would seem Twitter has updated their original release and changed their terms.

    So I believe you could WoltLab now use Twitter's as an alternative. Although given their past, I would be cautious.
