Why?

These are hard times, but remember that we are all in it together.

Because some users were persistently posting lines and lines of emoticons, often without even one line of text comments. Emoticons were limited some time ago.

Ah! So because some (MP's and Bankers?) were profligate with them the rest of us have to be rationed?

Is there any reason why the number of different emoticons is limited? There are just under 50 on this site but the unoffy has around double that number and they appear to be from the same source.

no idea, there used to be more available but after the last forum/site rebuild they disappeared. I have tried adding more via the admin panel but they don't show up.
