    Hey folks! Some new upgrades and features here. We're going to be launching a number of new things this month - a couple of new forum skins at last, for instance.

    Let's start with something small, though - some FF-themed emoticons, as requested in this thread by @Jenova. We've used FF's retro history to go simple, and have quite literally borrowed these sprites from some of the games for emoticon purposes:

    First off there's some small ones of FF1's iconic classes: :warrior: :blackmage: :whitemage: :redmage: :monk: :thief: :shockedwarrior:
    Some iconic other graphics - the pointer, Magic Materia (FF7), a couple of airships, and a crystal (from FF4) and the first enemy most players faced in FF - FF1's Imp! :ffpointer: :materia: :redwings: :airship: :crystal: :ff1imp:
    There's two larger ones of some iconic FF creatures: :chocowalk: :mog: :happyboko: :happymog:
    And a number of test-run sprites of some FF leads: :lightning: :vaan: :shantotto: :tidus: :zidane: :squall: :cloud: :terra: :bartz: :cecildark:

    I've categorized these off separate from the rest of the smiles, the normal ones - when you click the emoticon button now, you'll see categories. I can add loads more if people wish - if you want to see any specific FF iconography, drop suggestions in a post here and I'll do my best to make them happen.

    Obviously, try to use these sensibly, don't clog every post with tons of 'em! Common sense applies. Enjoy!

    I've changed some of the commands for these emotes to put them inside :these: to make them not trigger by accident. Also, here's a few newies.

    As requested by @Squirrel Emperor ... :kefkalol:

    Also added a couple of creatures; :cactuar: :tonberry:

    More to come. @Kaii, really like that idea and am sort of looking into it. Those Moogle emotes are cute - I'm just wondering how others would feel about using them to replace the default? (I'd keep the original smiles accessible through a different command, but doing a winky face would make a winky Moogle appear, for instance) - thoughts?

    We could take a poll or something and figure out what people like (though I'd be shocked if most Mognet Central users hate mogs). I think that it would make the forums kind of unique and that it would give people chances to use FF-specific emoticons as part of normal conversation, rather than as visual spam.

    You could even mix it up. I'd love if like :O was :shockedwarrior:.

    Looking into the emote situation - we'll definitely put some Moogles in, though maybe as an alternative to the basic set with a different command set.

    I've added something simple today - you'll see this on all skins - a couple of extra links to the 'Forum' header under navigation. You can now use a few of these to see what others are up to at a glance:
