Codex is an ok place, but Jim the Dinosaur is an extremely crappy poster, right?

    Voting's anonymous to avoid voter intimidation. Codex is an ok place, but the smileys are extremely crappy, either it's shitty emoticons like :oops:, I mean c'mon who'd show that to their uncle on christmas? Or it's those shitty big things that are funny for one day maybe, I mean let people look up their hilarious pictures online, they only get lazy this way. Dac should show the way, you even already have a couple: :cry::salute: and some more. They perfectly enforce the point being made by the poster. So, more of those, and scrap the rest.

    I mean these ones, c'mon::youreafag::dead::notsureifserious::what:

    I agree with the first three smilies, but the last one is an indispensable tool for GD threads.

    I agree, we need to get rid of these shitty unpure smiles, especially ones that aren't Codex trolls or show ambiguous emotions.

    Yeah, but see that's how they keep us divided, everytime somebody has their own pet favorite giant smiley which justifies all the other ones. That's why the great smiley reform act of 2013 is necessary.

    Good to see this months smiley argument thread just scraped in, was worried we weren't going to have one for August.

    Who's turn is it for September? Can they please wait until at least the 15th to spread them out.

    Thanks

    Dac poses no danger bro, just need to hold your breath, go over to the fetid corpse and pry out its golden tooth of smileys.

    Codex really has some shitty extremely situational emotes. Stuff like that should be left to img hosting

    Jim the Dinosaur, so you basically come from a shitty forum (DaC), started posting regularly just recently, and now are pushing your demands on the Codex? Seriously?

    Please ban this fucker.

    You can kill me, but you cannot kill the righteous cause of smiley reform. Vote yes on the great smiley reform act of 2013 people.

    Purge them all. Graphical emoticons and image macros are fucking annoying and stupid. Bring back ASCII art.

    Look into the Codex and the Codex looks into you
    I think it's important for those who are going to vote in this poll, that they be made aware of the facts during this election campaign.

    81 uses.

    89 uses.

    389 uses.

    5,536 uses.

    The first two were only implemented in April this year, averaging 16 uses per month. While "what" has been around for three years receiving 153 uses per month, and the phrase "notsureifserious" has been used as far back as 2009 - but wasn't a smiley until last year - keeping its monthly usage around 20 to 30.

    That all compares to :mhd: 1,262 uses in 5 years, which sees an average of 21 uses per month.

    Don't listen to Jim the Dinosaur's scare campaign. It's only full of misinformation and lies.

    Just because lots of people use something doesn't mean it's not shit. See: Game industry.

    Also, few if any of the MHD smiley's uses were people complaining that it's shit, unlike the notsureifsrs and you'reafag ones. WtfamIreading on the other hand, deserves to stay.
