1) Yes, there are issues with the Gallery again. I'm working on it as time permits. This week is hectic, though; closing on a house, traffic court, parents visiting, finishing the draft of a town plan, and other thigns keeping me pre-occupied.
2) I added a few new smilies, and cleaned up some of the smiley codes so there should be fewer problems with smilies being inserted where they normally shouldn't appear. The smilie code should be the same as that for MSN Messenger and some other vBulletin-based bulletin boards.
I got rid of the Dubya smiley, mainly because it didn't look that good in 15x15 pixels. Cyburbia uses 15x15 sileys, as opposed to 19x19 smileys on many other boards, so their use doesn't cause irregular line breaks. I also trashed the unused Canadian beaver hat smiley.
