    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/

    Thanks.

    The blog I need help with is iwanticewater.wordpress.com.

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

    Thanks.

    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!

    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.

    :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?
