Kit, are you the one who does the different mood icons. I don't mean the smilies. I mean, like the sunset (Icon65) I have right now.

Well, whoever is involved with them, do you take suggestions on more? If so, I'd like to propose adding a nice, steaming cup of coffee to the list.

I know it would fit me best.

Hi Mike ... I've done a lot of animated smilies, but no one has asked about the mood icons before.

It's a neat idea ...

Hmmmm ... it appears to be a gif, so I could certainly work something up for you Mike, but Ron would have to give me the go ahead, as I don't know how they actually incorporate into Ron's forum software (or if he wants my little sketches in yet more places in his blue pages, lol)

Here's Alicat's coffee morph to keep you cozy till we find out, lol ...

The problem with the current software is that we're limited to 99 icons - and we're already at 91. We could add a few more, but only a few. A month or two ago, we had a thread where we discussed getting rid of some of the old so we could get some new. But it seems like there isn't a single one of our 91 icons that SOMEBODY doesn't just love to death. Worse, all 91 of those icons have already been used. Imagine pulling up an old post of yours where you used, say, a coffee icon, only to find it replaced with a martini glass. Some people, I'm afraid, could be offended by having their choices changed retroactively.

The news isn't completely bad, though. I've started the design process on our next software upgrade (which is a misnomer, since it will be a total re-write) and have every intention of removing the 99 icon limit. We'll have a lot more choices, with multiple pop-up windows for both icons and smilies (a dire necessity to handle our prolific l'il Kit). Better yet, everyone will be able to upload their own PERSONAL icon (no one else can use it!), much in the way we now do with photos.

But even the good news isn't completely good, either. Just as we have size requirements for the photos (100 by 150 pixels), we'll need to impose limits on the icons. Sunshine's choice of coffee, for example, is 64 by 64 pixels, or roughly twice the size of our other icons. I haven't set a final size yet, but I'm guessing we'll go with 32 by 32 pixels (which is a standard size for the icons on your desktop). I'll have to look at our existing icons and the final design of the new software before I can be sure, though.

LOL..Ron, I promise not to get rid of my angel, but will only use the coffee icon in a response for when someone greets me with a coffee-clinker wake-her-upper poem!  OK?  Thanks!

Sounds wonderful Ron. I'll be happy to play around with the icons in the size requirement once the software revisions are complete. It will be a whole other playground, lol

And lol @ Karilea.
