Custom emotes?



I was wondering if it was possible to add custom emotes to skype as windows live messenger allows, skype has a limited set of emotes and its really rather annoying, Yahoo IM even has more emotes.

Re: Custom emotes?

I for one hope I never see custom emotes on skype. 


I use skype because it's clean and works like a champ.

I for one don't want to have to read hieroglyphics of animated gifs and flashing pink who-knows-what.


Just my two cents.

well for people like you Beta there is already an option to disable emotions from showing at all.

i for one would prefer if they catered to everyone..

All my hundreds of collected emotes are gone now anyway. i even made custom animated ones of my characters for playing silly games with my friend.

the option to use them would be nice
