I think there should be some.

But just plain ones.

The animated or color ones cause a big slowdown plus people will spam… A LOT

Yeah. Cool Idea there. Make the chat rooms sort of a Kongregate IM system. I like the idea but if we launch smileys we should make a limit to how many smileys per minute and per shout in the chat room. I definitely don’t like that people already spam the chat rooms with their ‘typing drills’.

Believe me, though, I bet someone would find a way to hack Kong so they could spam smileys in all the chats. Ugh. I definitely agree with FuzzyBacon, the minimalist smileys convey more to me than the color smileys.

I don’t see the point in smileys. If a chat somewhere has them, i usually find ways to skip over them. (ex. if “:D” would have an emote, i would do “: D”

Kongregate totally needs smileys there AWESOME!!! :) :D :P

The text-based emotes we can already create are fine enough, I feel :P

That’s a terrible, terrible idea.

The amount that stupid people will spam…

It’s bad enough as it is.

Alternatively, give K+ users the option to enable them in their private rooms?

I don’t think I’m the only one who’s lagged due to Kong chat in a couple of games. Platform Racing 2, for example.

Also, I don’t like how smileys are rather annoying, I think the classic xD or :) is sufficent.

XD = Orgasm face
Its use in the chat should be a bannable offence.

Kongregate is cooler because it’s not a cliche site. No signatures, no emotes, and for a while it didn’t have the whole follow system.

Upon seeing this post, the GameStop crew got to work on adding smiley support.

pff i think we need smileys

Adding smileys in Kong Chat is just a horrible idea. Lag, idiots spamming them, and they would be useless.

actually i think that anyone whouses big smiles a lot is a level of intellegence,
so you could ban them if they use it to much =O

 
Flag Post

It would distract from the games and look messy.

Dear god, the irony.

Mike brings up a good point. It’s already irritating enough when people use ASCII art or spam the Alt Code symbols, but to also have to deal with Instant Messenger emoticons? No thank you. There are plenty of creative ways to type emotions through a solely text-based form.

No Kongbot would make sure the emoticons dont lag.
