I don't know what's wrong...
the Tampermonkey icon is there next to the url location - and a small red 1 is showing...I thought that indicates that 1 script is running - but apparently not?
should it be green?

Whaaa....

I know it's not going to happen, but if good emoticons do come back, these would fit in on ATS

Gizmo fits in everywhere.


Oh how I love choices! The more the better. These are so cute........especially the tin-foil hat one, and the little guy being beamed up.
Perfect!

These emoticons are definitely some of the lamer ones I have ever seen. I can't see emoticons having that much of a bandwidth issue. If anything is a bandwidth issue, it's the advertising on this site. I can say for a fact there's about 30-40 different marketing scripts on this site.

You are correct. Last i counted it was 43 scripts. suck that bandwidth up!


The emoticons are probably one long png or gif with span tags being used. Bandwidth is definitely not the issue. They're more cartoonish and that's probably what they are going for. I'm not hating on them at all, it's their site, they can do as they wish. And, as popular as it is, they're doing a damn good job.

Of course they are doing a damn good job. Nobody is saying they aren't doing a damn good job. What we are saying, is that we want the old ones back because they are more expressive, and fun to use.

I'm 100 percent with you. I'm just looking at both sides of it.

You can upload your own personal emoticons to the site if you want. It's just a lot more aggravating to use them. But it brings the fun back

Speaking of pbjtime...

Anyone know why some of these appear to be frozen?

Or why some are centered and some aren't?



They worked fine a while ago...

Too tired maybe, sleeping?

Maybe playing dead? (Gatling guns, chainsaws, etc.)


This one seems to work though...

Whaaa....

Try clicking on the red icon and see if it turns green. I use Firefox so I'm not entirely sure how it works on Chrome, but I know it works because someone else used it on Chrome.

Mmm..
Nope.

Oh well - nevertheless, THANKS for having written this script!!!!

I have "ESETNOD32WHATEVERANTIVIRUSTHING" .....

so, maybe it just didn't allow it.

Anywho - thanks for your effort, and for your response!!

^^ lame-o emoticon

LOL!!!!

I would suggest reading a quick tutorial on how to install and enable scripts in Tampermonkey, it's probably just a simple problem.

EDIT: also make sure you have JavaScript enabled on abovetopsecret.com

maybe you can make your own and upload them to your image bar...

Yes I have done that but it's pretty awkward. Installing ChaoticOrder's script with greasemonkey on Firefox seems the best solution with the image upload as backup for those moments when something extra is needed.

I'll make this short and sweet. I want my emoticons back! BACK, BACK, BACK!

The old one's were a bandwidth problem from what I recall was said in the BB forum during the site upgrade but I don't care. These emo's are driving me insane, I have to do a mouse over just to tell what half of them are.

What are these? (no cheating)

Let me tell you, there is no Uzi in that row, no cheers either!

And what the heck is the difference between
and
???
or between
and
???

Emoticons have been described as a universal language but I'm feeling muted. Surely if we can post animated gif's we can have an emo that looks like a real emo.

/rant over




Cheers and BRAVO!!! WTH happened to the 'roll eyes' emoticon?? There isnn't one tha adaquately describes frustration and aanoyance with dipshiite posters like me.

AND.........To the grammar nazis that have coronaries at my posts. A Harvard and Yale study concluded that If its spelled close to.....than you can still make out what I am trying to say.

I can't feel my fingers....70% the 30% that does, does NOT feel like going back and grammatically correcting things that YOU can read!!

Yup, I did all that, and the little red "1" is still there.
When I click on the icon, it says it's enabled. But - no dice. I'm still seeing the lame-o smileys.

Oh well - I'll survive. Bigger fish to fry.

*shrug*
