The default vBulletin emoticons are obnoxious and make me want to strangle small furry animals with my bare hands until they are raw and bloodied.
So I've made new ones. I'd display them here separately, but the forums software limits me to 10 images per blog post. :|
In addition, two animated ones:
Anything important I missed?
EDIT: Further stupid emoticons

Throughout the years here at the Rigs of Rods forums, I have gone from stupid newbie to stupid invited member.
Through these times two things have remained constant: my level of immaturity in any given situation, and my avatar.
No, not the naked-blue-pagan-treehugging-hippie-communist avatar. :|
I mean the forums avatar.
When I tried to reupload it after the great forums switch of 2010, it told me this:
I thought to myself, "what?"
How could the forums do this to me? Doesn't it know who I am?
Enraged by the forum software's apparent lack of knowledge as to the hierarchy here at the forums, I tried uploading again. Again it failed to upload.
Panic began to set in. What will I do without my avatar? Would I suffer an e-identity crisis? How would it affect my productivity? Would I have to find a new avatar? Somehow the old backup avatar seemed a little dated.
Perhaps, I thought, other invited members might be sympathetic to my cause.
I posted a thread in the invited boards where I made the point that while it was nice and all to have an avatar size limit, it prevented me from using my avatar. This was clearly a violation of my right to free expression under the constitution of the United States, I stated. Furthermore, clearly if people can upload multi-megabyte image files to posts, then I can upload a 78 kilobyte avatar that loads once per page that I post in?
It was pointed out to me that the forums weren't hosted in the United States, and that you are being immature.
I countered by saying that I was always immature no matter what the situation, and that you have a poopyface anyway.
Rather unfortunately, this amazing feat of rhetoric proved to be too much for them as it sailed over their heads. They told me that my avatar was a distraction and too large and to change it.
While tdev did say that he increased the forums avatar size limit, for whatever reason I still cannot upload my avatar. I do not know how long it will be before I get my avatar back or whether it will happen at all.
Please show your support for the increase of the avatar size limit so that I can have my avatar back before I go insane and kill everyone. Thank you.
