I don't really want to add loads of smileys unless there's a clear need for them. As mentioned by others, I did slim down the selection a few years ago, because they weren't adding or conveying anything, and the sheer number was becoming a bit of a pain.

They're mostly all black and white, and from AHDN , because that's the style I chose when I set up the website over a decade ago. The cover of that album has so many different faces that I'd hoped I could just limit it to those, but others have since been added. I'm actually fairly happy with the ones we have, and definitely don't want to add things like a Sgt Pepper drum or a Yellow Submarine , but could certainly include a smiling Paul. Give me your best suggestions – they'd need to scale down, so no tiny details that would be lost. Beatlemania-era preferred.

On the subject of size, there's no limit imposed by the forum, but they look a mess if they're too big. Other forums are free to do their own thing, but I'm not going to recut all the smileys and make them larger.

I probably could include the other wives for the sake of completion, but I won't do the exis. Let's keep it manageable. Perhaps Linda, Cynthia, Jane (?), Maureen. I won't add Nancy, Barbara or Olivia, because they were post-Beatles.

These Pauls are nice and smiley, though the first two may be difficult to cut and and the third one's not in black and white... I'll keep looking.

Edit: Here's a nice smiley Paul and a smiley John!

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8But do they have a purpose? John's face doesn't seem to be conveying any emotion besides standoffishness in that picture... it's hard to tell how he's feeling when his eyes are hidden.

Here's a smiley John in a hat that is at least similar to the In His Own Write hat...

I still like the John in this picture better, though:

Well that would sure be a problem if it were a smile i was submitting instead of a reference to the era in question, wouldn't it? paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

I thought Joe said he didn't want to include smileys that didn't add or convey anything? Which yours doesn't seem to?

I mean, if people want it as a sort of "I'm judging you" face that would be cool, but we already have a-hard-days-night-john-1for that...

It's up to @Joe , anyway. mccartney-shrug_01_gif

Oh... that makes more sense, sorry, I misunderstood. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

 Although you may find it more effective to post a picture that you think would make a good smiley, instead of a picture from the era... a-hard-days-night-george-10

Another thing, how do you post images directly? Linking them works but I'll just keep looking like an ignoramus if I don't learn. 🙁

I welcome that idea, 'cause frankly I think all those redundant "Hard Day's night" heads are kind of an eyesore, and most of them could be eliminated. You can hardly telll one from the next, they're so small and lo-def. And I think they're overused in general: Employing a smiley to convey a certain tone or commentary is fine, but inserting them into a block of text in place of typing a simple "Paul" or "Ringo" - that really irritates me.

Sorry, don't wanna be a blue meanie or offend anyone, just giving my opinion. And I know I have no right to complain, since this is Joe's webpage (& a fine one), and I've certainly employed the smileys myself a coupla times. I found both the pointing-upward and nose-thumbing ones most useful. even though they're so small I can barely tell whose faces they are. (Ringo and Paul?)

OK, rant over. As for suggestions...I have none of my own. I'll leave it to everyone else to think up some really good ones. I'm not sure just what circumstances would call for "Two Virgins " or Apple ones to be used...

  

Man, that "Von Bonehead" dude could be an insufferable dick in those days - glad he never posted again (except for a little) paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif
