These new ones are pretty good. I like them better than the old ones. Good stuff. It will take me a while to figure out what they all mean. Like
? What is the difference between
and
and
? I wear glasses so I guess I need to roll with the last one?

No worries. Big improvement

I'm still waiting for an adequate eye-roll emoticon. I used that one a LOT. I can't see one that really gets that same message across.

Just wondering the 'why' with the emoticon changes.

Is it the site aiming to reduce server costs with the tiniest file size smilies known to man?

Is it due to copyright reason that you need your own set? If that's the case would the mods be willing to let some of the talented artists on ATS create a specific set of emoticons for ATS?

Is it all about the colour theme continuity? If it is, maybe find a way to change the green colour for those of us who hate green?

No offence to whoever created these of course, I doubt I could do better myself but they are so flat and lifeless and as a fellow human I find no emotional connection too them. I know that sounds silly, but if a commentor is saying something in jest and pops in a winky smily it just seems that its missing .... soul? Yeah, its a cartoon representation, but the plain drearyness of these emotes dont help me connect with the commentors emotional state.

Hope you guys understand that I'm just not trying to be a negative nancy but rather offer helpful criticism!

I mean is this
supposed to be a sad almost in tears wrinkled mouth face? Its called "duh" which looks nothing like I imagine it... the mouth looks like a fuzzy stash! Again, this demonstates the ambiguity of this icon set.

I still much agree with you.

Though I'm still not likely to begin using them much. Rarely have. Still . . . the following ones are slightly attractive.

Still don't like 'em and will continue to keep a eye out for the old school ones. Some things just should not change.


But now at least I have some new targets to shoot at.


If it ain't broke....don't fix it.

In my opinion they are all crap, even worse than the last effort.

If the smilies are going to look so cheezy; perhaps we could do away with them altogether and use English phrases to express ourselves.

Instead of F'in (fluffing) around with those silly e'cons how about do something useful like go into the template settings and set this thing right ..............
"You have exceeded the maximum window of 4 hours allowed to edit your post."
and actually have it set at 4 hours not 2-3 hours like it is now.
Doh!
Its been like that forever and bugs me no end.

Agreed.
I'd give you a star but those don't seem to be working on this Topic .................. Duh

I don't think I have a favorite (yet) but I just want to give a big THANK YOU! to whomever is responsible for the change! The old smilies drove my CPU use through the roof and forced me to turn off images every time I posted on this forum. No problems with these new ones so far!

They aren't too bad... They could be worse!!!

I like this one ~~>>>
cause it makes me look like John Lennon


You look good in shades.


I suppose I'm a sucker for the obvious
and of course I'll find use for
, I'm sure ....
Might come in handy too, once in awhile


's abound for learning the precise meaning to each
but I'm sure we'll manage. We can just hoist one to having something and the
of an idea to come up with many more that are just clear enough to know right off.

As for the others? Well..... We can give a
for the mystery of it and challenge to find creative places to use them. As long as it's not
eh? That would definitely be

Not I! I'm part of no conspiracy to cleverly fool you into slowly accepting these emoticons as your very own, to forget about all past ones and forsake any other form.

I'd never sign onto or be a part of such chicanery. Nope.
