Smilies

Post by therube »

Smilies

Since we're in a complaining mood of late (relating to the new board, & not that it really matters, but)...

I'll just comment that I don't care for the (new) Smilies.

While "cuter", if you care about that, I find them far harder to distinguish, so less informative, compared to the older, simpler versions.


(And while I'm at it, I might as well throw in a smilie :-).)

I have to agree, not a big fan of the square orange smilies either.
Thankfully, a first world problem. :D

+1 and not just that, some of these smilies express a very different emotion than is named in their tooltip, some have totally different meaning than their old counterparts
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!

(I'll point out, that I generally only use two smilies, wink & smile.
And rarely use the Smilie "picker".
And the only reason I use those two, is that I happen to know the "code" for them ; - ) & : - ).
