    I think some topics (especially those in the strategy section) could be better if we had some of the icons from Civilization IV to be used as smilies (like the hammer, health, gold, etc.). It'd sure beat typing +1 happiness or +1 productivity or +1 commerce. Such big words! ;)

    I agree, but I couldn't help but be reminded of Jay Leno...

    Not that I think you are lazy, but... ;)

    Way to make the Civ3'ers feel jealous...
    I'll take the neutral side. There are a lot of things we'd like to abreviate with smileys, but we don't.

    I suggested it in the Smiley addition thread. No response.

    Probably because Suggestion #1 made no sense from the getgo.

    Contrast is a bit poor. Maybe a black or gray border around them? Would that look better?

    lurker's comment: I do. Although I can only see a half of it. 3rd edition? ;) .

    Ontopic: How often would you use "+1 commerce" ? Not often I think.
