New Smilies?

  1. 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


    The blog I need help with is

  2. rebeccaluellamiller

    Please consider re-instating the old version of the smilies. These new ones are ... cheap-looking.


  3. 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! :(

  4. Well said Rebecca, these new ones look really cheap and cruel!

  5. 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!

  6. Man! I've only seen a couple of the new smilies, buy if your distaste inspires you to such lengths ... Vive Le Revolution!

  7. I am not liking the news one! They really are full of teeth! And not as cute as the old one!

  8. 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 >^_^<

  9. It's being passive-aggressive. True geeks hate smilies.

  10. I noticed! But those little niceties can go a long way towards creating a pleasant comment thread.

  11. Perhaps AutoMATTic bought a smiley factory?

    And being a geek at heart, smileys are turned off on my blog. :-)

  12. weltdeswissens

    I preferred the old smilies. I completely agree with vikasjnu.

  13. 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.

  14. ;) 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!

  15. Funny they are turned off in this forum also............... lol

  16. It's because the wordpress people are true geeks :)

  17. WE HAVE A PIRATE SMILEY???? Ossum. Do we have a ninja and a robot and a squid as well?

  18. But seriously, what kinda geek wouldn't want a ninja smiley? LOL

  19. 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!!


  20. I was a geek but I am improving with blogging!:D

  21. smile costs nothing but gives much.
    It enriches those who receive without making poorer those who give.
    It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.
    None is so rich or mighty that he cannot get along without it and none is so poor that he cannot be made rich by it.
    Yet a smile cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away.
    Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
    Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.


  22. I second that emoticon! :-)

  23. For you youngins, that a Smokey Robinson reference :-)

  24. This is being discussed and some new code is expected. So it's going to happen but I genuinely do not have a time for when it will arrive. In the meantime, if you see an GPL smiley set you really like you can send the url to Support. But they MUST be GPL. No other license or terms can be used. No promises that a certain set will be used but the more we have to choose from the better.

  25. One clarification to Mark's comment. The smiley sets must be GPL v2 compatible, so that includes public domain, BSD-modified licensing, etc.

  26. I don't like those new smilies either.


  27. Please bring back the old smilies. Please, please, please... :-)

  28. If I understand correctly:
    For now we are stuck with those hideous smileys, while the WP-guys are looking for a new 'GPL v2' -set.

    Who said again: If it ain't broken, don't fix it?

  29. I loved the old ones... Bring them back, please.

  30. smile is smile
