Just FYI, in the text edit boxes all across the forum, if you just click on the little smiley face icon, you can find the entire lineup of emojis. No need to remember each and every one :)

Yabbut, that's what I meant by having to mouse-over each one every time, since they didn't have text tags and they're so small and indistinct it's hard to tell many of them apart... (They actually show up larger and more clearly in your screen grab than they do in the text editing box...)

Yay!:) I still miss ":hmm:" and "^_^", but I"ll take what I can get.;)

:eek:

I don't have any icon libraries, so I'm playing with yours.

Too bad they're not .svg and scalable to 100x100. That would be cool. Come on technology, catch up.

Probably not the solution you're looking for but there's this page:
https://forums.anandtech.com/help/smilies

You can't click on one of the smilies on that page to place them in your post. Would be easier if you could.
Wonder if they could make that page popup when you click on the smilies icon in the reply box, similar to the way VB had a smilies page popup?

Thanks, I bookmared it and it is helpful, though with the old smilies back, I doubt I'll use the new ones much anyway...

I used to like some of the emojis and used them regularly. I just had a look at the 30 or so you can choose from by clicking the emoji symbol in the menu of the edit window. They are ridiculous and connote nothing to me. I suppose one can find .gifs somewhere to insert if you're clever. Any ideas?
