Using Custom Smilies
I keep getting asked about the "custom smilies" I use here.
Firstly, the reason: The smilies on chess.com are LAME!!!
Secondly, the how: They are just images I have uploaded to chess.com in the normal way. Once uploaded you can easily access them again and again, making putting your own smilies in no more difficult than puttin in the chess.com ones... which when you think about it is really nuts... it shouldn't be so hard to use a smilie
So yes, I encourage you all to use your own!
Perhaps then, the chess.com staff will do something to make the more interesting
Or maybe not
