Smilies Critique

post #1 of 256
Thread Starter 
OK, this is really minor, but it's been drawing my notice for a while: The "drool" smiley, which appears to be meant to imply hunger, yumminess, etc., well ... am I the only one who thinks it's a little too, um, green?







He looks to me like he has a high temperature and is about to...

You are right, Drool Smiley, is not horny enough, and desperately needs SEXING UP! HAHAHA!!!
post #3 of 256
Agreed, Drooling Smilie looks somewhat seasick.

i don't mind that smilie so much but since this was brought up, the smilies for the comments on the photo album annoy the heck out of me. those little winking yellow faces.. grrr.. can't it use the same smilies as the rest of VB?
post #5 of 256
When we upgrade, there will be a new list of smilies. We'll also be taking steps to ensure that the smilies in the album match the ones on the board.

We see the world as "we" are, not as "it" is; because it is the "I" behind the "eye" that does the seeing.

Drool smilie does look ill. I thought it was supposed to, though.



Tame smilie flickers... is it just my browser, or does it flicker for everyone? I find it most annoying.



I would really like to see a coffee mug as well as a beer mug.



and are two of my favorites, though I don't use stinkeye often.
post #9 of 256
There will be all new smilies on the new board. That mean some old favorites will be going away.



But don't think of it as losing old smilies, think of it as gaining new smilies. There's like 50 of them!

As long as this smilie retains its name, it is all good.

Yes, many people find Tame the most annoying.

I think a "hot pants" smiley could be useful at times

That and that trick smilie you showed me.



Just the pimpin' in me...
post #17 of 256
only annoys me because it flickers in my browser. Someone else told me it doesn't flicker in theirs, though. Once I get around to upgrading, my annoyance will be gone... you'll just have to try harder!

Borealis... the Tame icon is animated... there is a little puff of smoke from the cigarette (or is that a cigar?) that floats up. But other than the animated smoke... the smiley itself is pretty static.
post #19 of 256
Not in my browser ( Netscape 6.2). The puff floats up, then the head disappears, then it appears again half a second later. Trust me.
post #20 of 256
Unless I get b!tch-slapped there will be a new Tame smiley.

Nooo! I know that people already pick on my smiley usage but 6 is harsh.



Luckily there's no restrictions in PMs. (Trust me I checked )







p.s. I'd like to have these:

First I thought it was a David Hasselhoff fansite.
post #24 of 256
Well, if people are making requests, how about catloaf?
post #25 of 256
Oat, that last one is just creepy. But that catloaf is so cute!



I have no suggestions. But definitely a tame smiley, and you have to have a hugging smiley. I hug way too much to not have one.

Borealis' catloaf smiley and Stonecrest's blubber smiley are both quite adorable.



There will still be a version of vebo, right?? I love that dancin' carrot-weinie!
post #27 of 256
but there is a hugging smiley! well, it doens't look like a hug as much as a headrub, but smileys are all head anyway...



what i want is a kissing smiley.. hehe <---- and btw this one stays or i'm going on a murderous rampage!!! hehehe...
post #28 of 256
Ephine, you should request a murdersmiley then in that case... similar to this one WhackSmiley is a must have!!!!!
post #29 of 256
Epi - I know there's a hugging smiley - I just still want one after the transition
post #30 of 256
I like , but since I'm such a polite thing, I don't dare to use it that often. Ok never, actually. Exept now.



AAaanyway. I'd like it to stay. It's obscene in a charming way.
