  • Smilies - space or performace issue concerns?

    Do smilies in any way create a problem as far as disk space or performance of the board, slower opening of pages, etc?

    Also how do you guys give credit where credit is due when you upload smilies from any of the many smilies sites out there?

    the default vb smilies are extremely small (sizes around 200bytes) and hardly take up any disk space or bandwidth. some of the animated smilies you can get from free sites will get up to 5KB for one smilie which can make a difference in your monthly bandwidth... still nothing major though.

      disk space and performance wise it shouldn't cause problems as to pages loading slower it all depends on the average size of smilies and how many you allow per post and how many posts per thread you allow to display
