The issue isn't how to get the smilies uploaded, but how to present them to the user. Currently, I have about 25 smilies visible on the posting page, and a link that opens a paginated pop-up window that has about 9 pages of smilies contained within.
There used to be a mod a long time ago, that allowed me to separate my vast horde of smilies into separate windows. I had multiple categories that could be accessed via buttons (or links) in the posting window. So instead of a catch-all "more smilies" link that lumped the whole mess into one window, I had (for a non-specific example):
When a user tapped the Game, link or button, they'd get a pop-up window with a selection of game themed smilies that was maybe a page or two at the most. Much more manageable IMHO.
I know the true solution to my problem is to just reduce my smilie collection to manageable levels, but I've been collecting them since 2003 and I'd rather just find a better way to manage them all rather than throw them in the trash.
Sorry for the the novel! I get passionate about really odd and unimportant things.
