OK, the situation with the smileys is this. I'd have liked them to be just AHDN ones, or at least B&W ones in the same style. I got a bit carried away when making them, and quite a few of them don't really have any practical purpose (they're just random facial expressions). I added a few extras along the way because I thought they'd be useful.
If I added Love silhouettes, a MMT bass drum or a Welcome The Rolling Stones doll, why would anyone want to use them? From now on I'll only create new ones if there's a genuine need for them <3  

The above post was from Joe - exactly 7 years ago tomorrow. It should give us all an idea of Joe's stance on the smileys. You'll notice that for the most part, they represent those in The Beatles inner circle. There are exceptions, of course, but the blue-meanieapple01heartbeatlemaniacs_02_gif, etc... have "a practical purpose" or are "useful". 

My trying to find a purposeful Derek Taylor image seems to be fizzling out because there are no images on the 'net that are clean enough - still digging the one Holey posted. A shame really, because he could have represented a smooth character. Failing that, I can still use a-hard-days-night-paul-5a-hard-days-night-george-4stuart-sutcliffe. Thanks to all who tried to pull this together.

Citing the criteria Joe has set forth and the ones I mentioned in my post above, the need for a Billy Preston post is borderline. Don't get me wrong, I love the guy. All I am saying is that if Joe says either yes or no to BP, I would completely understand. Hope you do to.

Regardless, I am encouraged by the participation these Beatles-related projects bring out. As a loving caretaker of The Beatles Bible, I thank you all.

Ah go on then. It didn't come out brilliantly, but I made a sort of exasperation, head in hands smiley (even though we already had a-hard-days-night-ringo-14)

I had to clone his arm so it was more symmetrical, similarly to the McCartney shrug: mccartney-shrug_01_gif

I never thought I'd see the day when we'd have a Derek Taylor smiley derek-taylor_01_gif. From now on I will only use this smiley derek-taylor_01_gif.

derek-taylor_01_gifThat's a cool smiley! I reckon it could be used for daydreaming, or that sort of thing... mccartney-shrug_01_gifI don't know. But it's cool!

Wow @Joe. Just...wow. Very cool. 

Thanks everyone - great pic @The Hole Got Fixed.

It only took me 8 years to get 2 smileys added!

Which one will be added in 2022? I hope you'll all be around to find out.

I didn't like the non-LIB pics of Billy – I wanted it to be from 1969. I found a pic from the film on Google Images that looked right, so here we are.

I finally worked out how to add line breaks to the smileys section. Should be a bit easier to navigate now.

Oooohh I'd love a Martha smiley, would confuse the heck out of any new Beatle fans as to why there's some dog available as a smiley.

AWWW! She’s the real fifth Beatle. I see some new avatar ideas in my future with those pics... although I love the one I currently have is just AAWW. Anyroad, I’m glad someone agrees with me on this issue. john-lennon-salute_gif
