What I would really like to see is some new Emoticons. Anyone who has ever seen any of my posts knows that I also end with "-Nick :face: :face: :face:" and it is really limited. I have seen some other forums like vBullitan that have tons of different emotes. It would be really simple to do and I am pretty sure that phpBB 2 has a feature that lets you add custom emotes. I would be up for making them too.

Speaking from personal experience, I can say that if a forum has many emoticons there are certain people who will overuse them in every post, which can get annoying. The basic emotes in the forum are generally enough IMHO and nothing is stopping you typing *hug* or somesuch anyway.
Yeah I don't really like having a bunch of emoticons. But some new ones would be a good idea.
you can always use other emoticons with the img tag
But clean and classic is so bleak. The icons look like something early Web 1.5 (the transition between regular websites and Web 2.0) Don,'t really do much and are kinda dull.

Has web development and online language really come to the point that without an abundance of emoticons we cannot adaquetly express ourselves?
Give me a break!
I think it has been suggested before, with similar results as this topic.
