Skype Emoticons

Did you know that there are more emoticons accessible in Skype than the 56 that are displayed during chats as icons?

I'm not sure why those additional ones have not been included in the menu where you can choose the emoticons but guess that it is probably because of the space they would have taken up in the interface.

Anyway, the only way to add those emoticons to your messages is to write them as text using a special syntax in the chat window.

I'm not sure if I may post the images to the emoticons and that is why I will only post the commands to add them to your chat and add a link to the website where I found this information.

Beware this is a huge list which contains only the new Skype emoticons.
