    Question Free Public Domain Smilie downloads w/o Spyware, Adware, Junkware?
    As everyone has figured out by now, I love smilies

    I just saw a banner in ABW for a Smiley Central download but I won't touch that banner because I suspect that the smileys from that company will be bundled with icky ickies -- spyware, malware, adware, yuckware, anyware

    Is there a place where I could download free public domain no royalties involved absolutely free & clean smileys so I could play with them?

    Any issues with posting smilies to a website and conflicts with copyrights and/or trademarks? Public domain smilies (if there is such a thing) would remedy the situation.

    In the absense of clean, non-bundled smiley downloads I'll just have to play with them here

    Thanks in advance

    I see it, too. It is in the ads by Google.

    Haiko, what are the usage restrictions for the smileys you host here? Could we right click on them and save them? You have a nice assortment.

    As mentioned many times, free smiley sites are typically adware in waiting.

    I'm sure Haiko will ban SmileyCentral's Google ad from showing as soon as he's aware of it.

    As for public-domain smileys, I don't know...
    I did find some free ones a couple of years ago without many restrictions, though.

    Yep!

    It says they're supposed to be for "YaBB Boards," but I think it should be okay to use them on other brands/types of boards.

    The smilies aren't nearly as extensive as ABW's, but they're "themed" (for instance, you can get a set where they're all cowboys) rather than just being the generic ones that come with board installs...
