I’m seeing modified versions of smilies in WP comments. Does anyone know why? And more importantly, can anyone point me to an updated version of http://support.wordpress.com/smilies/
The blog I need help with is: (visible only to logged in users)
Please consider re-instating the old version of the smilies. These new ones are … cheap-looking.
I am worried as much! I don’t like it at all. I think they are testing it; there is no official word or updated version of that page.
I hope they withdraw this measure asap! : D is a grin like :mr green: in the original smilies. The new ones are bad ones! :(
Well said Rebecca, these new ones look really cheap and cruel!
The new smilies do not smile
They are vile
They do not beguile
They look hostile
They lack style
Like a cheap hairstyle
Not at all worthwhile
We like the old style
It reflected lifestyle
New ones are junk pile
Don’t complement writing style
We therefore rile
And demand the classic style
Long live the old ones
We’ll stick to our guns.
WordPress People, please withdraw the new ones and reintroduce the classic set OF SMILIES!
Man! I’ve only seen a couple of the new smilies, buy if your distaste inspires you to such lengths … Vive Le Revolution!
I am not liking the news one! They really are full of teeth! And not as cute as the old one!
I like most of they except the :D and :o mainly because of too much teeth in the :D and it’s not cute, but we shall deal with them, they’re just smilies btw, the :lol: smilie doesn’t move anymore! Anyways, I’ve seen worse smilies like the ones on blogspot lol so really we should be glad we don’t have these >^_^<
It’s WP.com being passive-aggressive. True geeks hate smilies.
I noticed! But those little niceties can go a long way towards creating a pleasant comment thread.
Perhaps AutoMATTic bought a smiley factory?
And being a geek at heart, smileys are turned off on my blog. :-)
I preferred the old smilies. I completely agree with vikasjnu.
I prefer the old smileys as well I dislike the new smileys and wish they would revert back to the old ones until they can find a better set of smileys.
;) looks like a pirate, suppose to be wink
:lol: is this a laughing one? Looks like a gang member with black teeth
:roll: this is roll eyes, but his tongue is out?? WHAT?
:shock: And this one is shocked, looks sad
They are really sad!
Funny they are turned off in this forum also…………… lol
It’s because the wordpress people are true geeks :)
WE HAVE A PIRATE SMILEY???? Ossum. Do we have a ninja and a robot and a squid as well?
But seriously, what kinda geek wouldn’t want a ninja smiley? LOL
I hate the new smilies!! They have lost their animation!!! No laughing LOL and no eye rolling ROLL!! and evil and twisted look alike! The OOPS doesn’t blush, it’s just plain red. What a rip off!!
BRING BACK THE OLD SMILIES!!
I was a geek but I am improving with blogging!:D
