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 [ Mirror Site for 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?

in english the proper way to pluralize a word with a "ey" at the end would be "ies"

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, im 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"?
