Here you can download new smileys for use in your YaBB Board. Please read and care for the  copyright notes and the usage conditions *before* you download.

YaBB Smiley Sets (http://www.penthesilea.ch/yabb-smiley-sets/) [ Mirror Site for YaBB Smiley Sets (http://www.1eltern.ch/yabb-smiley-sets/) ]

The site contains several complete smiley sets (Afro smileys, easter smileys, halloween  and xmas smileys, snowman smileys, flower smileys, ...). Furthermore various color smileys (yellow, brown, blue, green, pink, purple).

The easter smileys set is available both in yellow and gold color.

P.S. What is the correct plural of smiley - smileys or smilies?

Is it possible that both plural versions are allowed? Or is smileys definitely wrong?
Title: Re:YaBB Smiley Sets (easter smileys + yellow smileys)
Post by: groundup on March 18, 2002, 07:26:40 PM
in english the proper way to pluralize a word with a "ey" at the end would be "ies"

the plural of "y" is "ies" but the plural of "ey" is "eys", like in monkey (monkeys), money (moneys or monies) or donkey (donkeys) and last but not least whiskey (whiskies or whiskeys)

but i use smilies ;)

If you enter smileys in google and search you get 412,000 results.  If you enter smilies you get 959,000.  Therefore popular opinion seems to go with smilies.  

(And yes I actually did that, now pass me another vodka)  ;D

Or the popular opinion goes with both. It seems not to be so clear. Maybe because smiley is a new word, which has been invented for the internet emoticons. The word "smiley" is not in my german/english dictionary, and not in my oxford dictionary yet.

no, i´m very sorry but there are pluralforms of money!

http://www.m-w.com/cgi-bin/netdict?money (very slow, but i have no time to scan my webster for you ;))

and when no dictionary contents the plural of smiley, so even we have to use the regulary plural of ..ey words, which is ...eys

Just changed the "smilies" in my signature back to "smileys"...

Isn't the word "smileys" simply looking better than the word "smilies"?

Post by: Dataforce on March 22, 2002, 01:35:42 PM
Here is my opinion, (This is what my English Teacher said)




If a word ends in 'Y' and has a vowel preceding the 'Y' you just add 'S' to make the plural (Boy ~ Boys).


If a word ends in 'Y' and has a consonant preceding the 'Y' you change the 'Y' into 'IES' to make the plural (Story ~ Stories).





So thus the plural of Smiliy is Smilys according to The english Language

but I prefer Smilies cos its eaiser to type :)




Deutsches jedermann wer dieses liest, dont beschweren sich über mein Schreiben, ich erlernen noch, ich sind nicht fließend.

Ist hier meine Meinung, (dieses ist, was mein englischer Lehrer gesagt)



Wenn ein Wort in ' Y ' beendet und einen Vokal hat, das '
Y ' gerade voranzugehen, Sie ' S hinzuzufügen, um plural zu bilden (Boy ~ Boys)


Wenn ein Wort in ' Y ' beendet und consonant hat, das ' Y ' vorangehend Sie, das ' Y ' in 'IES ' zu ändern, um plural zu bilden (Story ~ Stories).





So folglich ist der Plural von Smiliy ist Smilys entsprechend der englischen Sprache aber i-prefere xSmiliesx Lattich sein eaiser zur Art

aber ich bevorzuge Smilies Lattich sein eaiser, um zu schreiben.


Title: Re:New YaBB Smiley Sets (easter set + yellow smileys)
Post by: mediman on March 22, 2002, 02:02:22 PM
thats correct!

consonant + y --> ies (city cities)
vowel + y --> eys (key keys)

so smiley is smileys!

but does it really matter?
Title: Re:New YaBB Smiley Sets (easter set + yellow smileys)
Post by: andrea on March 22, 2002, 02:18:12 PM
cynda and mediman, thanks both. You hit the point. The question is clarified now. It is "smileys".


but does it really matter?

Well I think somehow it *does* matter. It was fun for me to discuss this question. The other point is that in school one learns to care for the orthography.

well if you upload this smileys in your YaBBImages folder, your "regulary" Smileys will be replaced! This is because the eastermileys use the same filename as the regulary ones!

As mediman wrote, you just upload the smileys into your YaBBImages folder. They will be activated automatically by this, because they will replace the standard smileys. When easter is over, you upload the standard smileys again, and the easter smileys are gone.

When you enter your board right after the upload: in order to see the new smileys after the upload, you might have to press the "reload" button of your browser, because the old smiley images might be cached.

Thanks for the flowers, UD_UL_DeViL. Well I did not change them. The banner is just switching to show sometimes the gold smileys and sometimes the yellow ones. My board template has no blue and green colors, but whithe, yellow and orange. By this the gold color smileys look like "dirty". They are beautiful and perfect smileys, but the color does for reasons I do not understand not fit into my board. For this reason I made 3 easter smiley sets: one in gold and one in plain yellow. And a standard smiley set in plain yellow color (fitting better into my board colors).

You have to wait until the author is back from holidays and case you are on YaBB SE 1.5 until the mod is updated to the board version 1.5 (as you can read in the add more smiley mod thread).

Since my intention when making the smiley site was to make kind of smiley repository, you are welcome to submit your smiley sets to the site, provided you are the original author of the smiley set.

The best procedure is to post a reply in this thread here or to IM me. In order to put the smileys online I would need:
- Author Name (can be the your board nickname)
- Smileyset creation date
- Copyright notes (backlink to your website required etc.)
- Comments
- Link to your website

Mail me a link to your zip or alternatively request my email where you can mail the zip to.

If you are looking for a special new smiley set, then mail me your idea or a sample smiley...

The YaBB Smiley Sets are updated with some new sets such as the new St. Patrick's Day smileys and Jasons Leprechauns, plus various sets, also from other authors. For technical reasons the site was partially rebuilt.

St. Patrick's Day Smiley Set
(http://www.hubacher.net/img/st-patrick-smiley-set.jpg)

Question: Any ideas on how webmasters could be motivated to follow the TOS better? The server logs show more than 60'000 zip file downloads. The very fewest give credits to the authors, provide a back link to the authors website or the smiley set website. Furthermore many non-YaBB boards started to leech the smiley set site, by linking their standard board smileys directly to the smiley sets site.

This would help against the leeching but not motivate webmasters to be more honest... The leeching botheres me almost less than the un-culture of just right clicking any graphic one sees somewhere and using it on the own website. In a certain sense the leechers are even more honest because they don't copy the graphics...

I did not want to start a .htacess discussion, I know how to make a .htacess or prevent generally hotlinking with other methods (anyway thanks for the answer).

However my main question is: how to motivate webmasters to be more honest, I mean this part of the question:

Quote
Question: Any ideas on how webmasters could be motivated to follow the TOS better? The server logs show more than 60'000 zip file downloads. The very fewest give credits to the authors, provide a back link to the authors website or the smiley set website.

Indeed per yesterday there are over 65'000 zip downloads. I am aware of x boards using the smileys (not only the leeching ones) without giving any credits...

You could save each set into one wide gif file, so they can still view the smilies normally, but they are forced to download the zip (or whatever archive format) file. Then you could add the TOS to the text that pops up when the zip opens. So they are at least forced to see it for a couple of seconds.

Thanks again. The TOS is already displayed on the start page and with each smileyset detail. Is that not clear enough? Or is the statement not well written? Is there is some ambiguity in the text? Any feedback on better formulating the text is welcome.

Post by: Benn on February 24, 2003, 11:14:48 PM
Yeah, but I can download the images without ever seeing or reading the TOS. This way they are forced into seeing it so even if they still don't follow it you at least have a legal foothold now.

Just make sure you also have Terms of Service in big bold letters in the file too, so they know exactly what it is even if they quickly click past it.

How can you download without seeing the TOS? Is it not so that can always download without reading the TOS, I mean you can always click without reading, also an "I accept" checkbox can be clicked without reading. The legal foothold is already there, the law is quite clear and strict re. copyright issues...

Just make sure you also have Terms of Service in big bold letters in the file too, so they know exactly what it is even if they quickly click past it.

There *is* already a "copyright.txt" file contained in my zips.
Title: Re:YaBB Smiley Sets (easter/halloween/xmas/colored/ethnic/...)
Post by: Benn on February 25, 2003, 07:20:31 AM
Well, I'm simply going off how I saw the site the first time. Even though you do have it written on the site (and the title is actually in bold) I still didn't notice it because I was distracted by all those *cute little pretty coloured smiley faces* below them. The scrollbar is pulled down almost immediately and the copyright message is taken out of sight.

Then one can simple copy all the images.

I was wrong about the legal bit, but there is still never a time when one is forced to click past a TOS message. Making it display upon opening of the zip is the guaranteed way they have too.

You could easily write a Photoshop action to combine the smilies into one string (or any other automated script from whatever graphic program you use) so that should be a one-click job, so that wont be hard to implement, and adding the opening message to the zip is a simple process too.

After forcing them through the TOS it is up to the person whether they follow it or not, any further attempts to convince them to follow it is pretty futile really. Unless you get a reputation for taking legal action against offenders the ones who already break the TOS aren't going to care about it (and I don't think you really want to do that!).

You can't force people to read the TOS. They will yust click oke and place the smileys on the board with out a link back. You could take them al to judge but i don't think you can do all that in one life time  ;)

Yes the mirror has not updated frequently. The reason was the many people leeching the smileys. I wanted to stay that restricted on the original site and so I was not motivated to update the mirror to frequently.  :P

Currently I am redesigning the site and if that is finished the mirror will be updated again.

AJ,

Jason is not active on this forum. He is using the perl version of YaBB. And you should email him to ask for the additional smileys, his email address is visible on the smileysets website. Of course me or others would be able to make the hidden ones. However it is not nice to alter somebodys smileys, the author of the smileys must be asked first and be given a chance to do it himself. Anyway I think you would not need them for *all* colors, I suppose also you are needing one color only for your board.

OK, how about something different? A set derived from the cute little YaBBY?

A slight modification to the original YaBBY layout, so it become "15x15 rounded square"--see images below (actual size).

If you like them, I will provide them online. They are transparent though.

Thanks folks for the your kind words.

Its not so easy to make smileys from the face in the logo because of the unsymmetric shape of the face.
Agree Andrea. That's why I used the square rather than original shape--its now vertically symmetrical.

Quote
Some faces look a little angry, for example the grin one:
Hmmm. Guess you're right. Actually, I wasn't that happy with the grin one in particular. Let's hope the new one looks better.

Here they are again as transparent gifs (please forgive the white spots at corners. Sounds I need to play further with my software settings). You may save each or download the complete set.

@sash:
My former comment re. grin was not referring to your set. You already mentionned the white corners. Should be renamed: sealedlips.gif -> lipsrsealed.gif. Missing: huh, laugh, afro, azn, evil
Keep working on it, the set will turn out fine.

They look better on dark backgrounds. Some faces look a little angry, for example the grin one:

(http://www.thebasement.yabbsites.com/aliencowfarm/yabbse/smileys/Gigalo/grin2.gif)

Does this one look better? and wish other smileys do look angry to you?

Does it look better with or with out a black border?

Its mainly the grin one who looked a little angry. Maybe its more the eyes than the mouth that make him look angry. The border is visible on bright bg colors but makes them probably smaller on dark colors. Also *with* boarder they still fit better on dark bg's (just my personal opinion). Smiley sets can be good and in spite be designed for specific bc color groups. My comment re. dark bg colors was not meant negative in any sense. Perfectly ok for me to leave away the border.

Hello!!

hey andrea I got another set of smillies if you want to add them to the yabb-smiley-sets page!!  ;D

I posted them and a few people like them so I guess submitting them here wount hurt!  ;D ;D

Summer Sun Smillies... (http://www.yabbse.org/community/index.php?board=144;action=display;threadid=22834)

Aquilo

Question?
should we make afro, azn, evil smillies!?!?
how would you do afro-sun smillie??
Title: Re:YaBB Smiley Sets (easter/halloween/xmas/colored/ethnic/...)

Nice work, Aquilo. I am happy to add them to the smileysets page.

Question?
should we make afro, azn, evil smillies!?!?
how would you do afro-sun smillie??

Of course smiley designers do not owe the 3 hidden smileys to anybody but experience shows people bug you all the time if you dont make them. I suppose azn and evil can be made without problems as summer suns. Re. afro smiley: one possibility is to make with the standard afro shape and face - without the sun rays - just with the sun smileys color sheme in the face.

They could be used on msn 6 but they would not look right becaus they are gifs, if converted to jpg's they would look better in msn 6 (msn 6 does not seem to work well with gifs :'( ).

Smiley sets having each smiley a different character are very big work to make. To create a new set from scratch as you are describing is at least a weeks work.

You should upgrade to 1.5.4.
And yes it is possible to add smileys. In the complete mod's section you can find the smileys mod. With this mod you can ad smilleys.
