Smileys
---------
We have three sets of smileys at the moment, of which one has been selected as the default.
Its called 'Alienine's Set' and I'm pretty sure it came as part of SMF, rather than Martin installing it.
The other two are called:
- Akyhne's Set
- Aaron's Set

It seems quite difficult to find images of them, though. Odd.

There are some more smileys here which we could just drop in, with minimal pain:
http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?action=search;type=12
Six pages of them - which isn't many, really, but there might be something worth having.

Or create your own set. From a quick scan of the above offerings, you just need to create/borrow* any number of GIFs, and give them to Brian/Martin to place into a specific smiley directory. (*royalty-free images)

Embedded Video
----------------------
Brian is spot on - there really is very little space available on the server, which is why the images bust very early on in the forum's life - the default storage was filled within a week. One or two videos would probably blow it straight away, so we're effectively  limited to storing text, plus links to fancy stuff.
