Wingdings and Webdings on profile pages please


Please, may we have Wingdings and Webdings font support for the profile pages if we can not have true smilies?

I'm pretty sure it would be easier to implement actual smiley images than to program the system to detect smiley codes, figure out which font to use, and hope the end user has those fonts installed on their system.

My strategy is just posting the smilie since I have them uploaded to Tinypic. Then I put the code-thingys in. But most of the time I just write the cue words (emoticon, emoticon, etc.)

Wingdings and Webdings are fonts so all that is needed is for RB to recognize the font symbols when posted...

But Rick is talking about profile pages, not boards. I assume he means live feed and comments.

I would personally like for links to be clickable, and for smiley codes to translate into graphical smileys.

I know he means the profile pages but I've done it through Tinypic there! For example I used the emoticon smiley in my last blog entry, which showed up after I posted the codes. But I could still be misunderstanding --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

EDIT: I'm very sorry. Posting with a different account like that emoticon Sorry again! I'll check next time emoticon

You can do that for blogs but not for the live feed posts or comments.

What Rick said.

I would love to have smileys and clickable links in the live feed and in comments (and every BBCode in PMs, for that matter). I just don't think webdings or wingdings would be nearly as good as graphical smileys. emoticon

I think normal smilies would be much easier for users. Even if it's just a number of very basic ones.
