New Razz emoticon?

Post by andrewgd » Jul 2nd 2003, 3:51 pm

Does the 'toungue sticking out' icon bother anyone else? It looks like the smilie is just opening their mouth. I propose the default is changed to this one:

If there is a consensus among a few people (or even if the great and mighty webmaster deems it so) I think this new one should be the default. It looks MUCH more like a tounge sticking out, than a bloody open mouth.

Plus, I use the tounge sticking out icon all the time to show I'm kidding Image and :P just doesn't cut it for me.

So c'mon! Don't be victim of bad smilies! :P :P :P Image Image Image

I agree that the current guy looks like he is smiling rather than razzing. Uhhh, so I hope I didn't offend anyone when I was using him as a smilie rather than a razzer!

:P

You could have sex with me if you really want to help...I guess that's a "no"?

I never liked the old one, the new one is better. I like the one from windows messenger too. Make the new one the default.

I didn't even know that was supposed to be a tongue. Just call me the resident moron. :P

And yes, I think it should be changed, although the new one looks like it is bleeding out of the corner of it's mouth...

You're not alone; it took me a while to figure it out too. :oops:

Yeah, maybe a one pixel wide border around the tongue, to make it "stick out" or something. We could keep the old razz as a smilie, just rename it.

While we are on the subject, "confused" :? has always struck me as some other emotion, like mildly annoyed, or possibly constipated...

Well since we're sharing our interpretations, I always thought this laughing guy :lol: looked more like he was smirking at someone than laughing WITH someone. Maybe it's the eyebrows.

:wink:

Hey, I must have some strange complex where I think everyone is trying to flip me off, but I think the Alien really is!
