    Pick your smilies

    There seems to be some ... unhappiness with the new smilies. If there's strong consensus on having the old smilies back, I'm happy to do it.

    I hate progress!

    Actually, you could make it so you could set your smiley theme in your settings. Then you can see whatever smiley faces you like. (Or, set it to none if you don't want any rendered.)

    Yeah, the older set --from 3 weeks ago-- were a lot nicer...

    Any chance of giving us more to choose from?

    Haha... so we cboarders don't like progress... funny considering we're programmers <insert retarded smiley here>

    Actually, my favorite _are_ the old, original ones that we had for years and years. I know ppl seem to have a thing for changing things that aren't broken, but they were really simple, not too overdone, and so, pleasant.

    I'm not digging the new ones. The laughing one looks like a lunatic about to slaughter an innocent.

    Ditto. And change! I can do without change too. Old smileys back please.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    I'm not too fond of the new smilies. They do look awful. I voted no, though that doesn't mean I don't like progress. I do. It's just that these smilies are awful. I know there are better ones out there.

    By popular demand, the old smilies have returned. If you don't see them, try doing a hard refresh (usually ctrl-F5)
