Emoticons - 3.3.5


This literally began as a meme in <You>, allowing people to express their feelings through emojis, emoticons and various of pictures instead of having to type it out. The emoticons expanded and eventually there were around 40 of them still increasing daily. I'm now expanding the addon outwards to those who want to use it, feel free to add more emoticons, but remember it's client-sided, so everyone has to have to same version as you. I'll be updating this, so feel free to post on the ToD thread (Theatre of Dreams) in case there are more emoticons you would like added.


To install put the folder into your addons folder like you would any other addon.

Use Emoticons ingame

To use emoticons in game, you must put the emoticon inside two colons. The emoticons are written below, but an example is :100: which would show: 100 ingame. There are only few exceptions that doesn't use colon, but these are likely to be removed and changed to colons only.

These function in *any* chat, but they can be disabled in the options menu. You can also send mails with emoticons in them. You can potentially have an unlimited amount of emoticons, filling as much as a normal message box would fill.

If you run a default chat addon, you are able to right click your chat bar to see 10 random (almost random) emoticons, which you can click to instantly have them typed in your chat.

Eye Candy is a mode that allows you to see the emoticon before you send it. Meaning if you'd rather type out :100: rather than typing :100: then it becomes an emoticon, you can disable it in "/emoticons".


This addon is a continuation (or a sideproject) of StewartA's addon: http://wow.curseforge.com/addons/smilies/. It's abandoned, hasn't been updated for two expansions, and basically 90% of the code belongs to him, with minor changes and edits. All thanks to him.
