    I just completed our final OKF Smilie. Kaipetri now has his very own emoticon! :kaipetri:

    If you look closely, you will see that the little guys have the same color wind blown hair and goatee as the original:

    He's even wearing a Finnish officers cap, similar to the one Mannerheim so often sported:

    This is quite a fearsome moderation squad we have assembled!

    A little late, but slipdigit's OKF smilie has been added to the list in the first post. It looks like we are bringing a very powerful and diverse squad into 2008!

    The first in this thread has been edited to include our newest addition to the OKF, Skipper! I guess we need to work on a smilie for him also. :D :eek:tto:

    A smilie would be welcome. Maybe something inspired by the picture I added in the Rogue galery with a Luftwaffe cap or an Adrian helmet?

    An Adrian helmet nice choice. We'll get this started for you in the Command Post.

    I've just added PzJgr to the OKF list in the first post of this thread. I now owe smilies to both Skipper and PzJgr. I'll have to bug Peppy again for his help...

    Some small edits to the first post in this thread to reflect the recent changes in the current Command structure. We will be returning to the tradition of making smilies for all members of the OKF on the site. :eek:tto: :trouble: :panzerpenguin: :peppy: :kaipetri: :martinbull: :mattc: :stefan: :erich: :alfie:

    Wow, it's been about 8 years since I updated this thread.

    Thanks to Peppy's work in years past, the smilie game was once very strong here on the forums. We had about 1,000 high quality, well organized options. Once we changed to Invision Power Board (IPB), the back end system proved so very cumbersome it was useless to try and keep them sorted. When we migrate to the new software system, ill resort them and issue the OKF smilies to any nember without one, starting with Belasar.
