I don't even remember what the old smilies were like but I really like the set in PF 4.0
What is it you find missing?
Yeah, what smilies do you want back?
For me the old ones were better. Not wide enough in range for my use of them which is not particularly extravagant I think, and I did occasionally import others, but those were of the same general type as the site ones. I would describe the new ones as somehow bloated and facetious and they remind me of the fat graffiti you often see along the walls of railways, in Europe anyway. A bad thing is, so far as I can see, the change has caused the smilies in the old posts to be removed, they are replaced with a x and an indication there was a smiley. Which is tantamount to saying they had no valid communicative purpose - but if you think that you might as well dispense with smileys altogether.
Can you link me to these threads?
I would be very surprised if that happened to regular smileys like :) and so on because they are stored as plain text and just displayed as smiley when someone opens the thread.
It can happen with external images if those disappear or get changed later.
At random, #6 in this thread
But I have seen others like it of late. I should say I am using mostly I-pad and I seem to sometimes see different things than other people. But you told me that many of the site changes were because a majority now accesses the site via such mobile devices.
Ah, that is because we don't have a devil smilie at this time :)
Uh huh ... back to your old overly nice ways, huh. You devil you ;)
The two X images were attachments that do not exist any more.
They do exist, but they break the image proxy because they are using the img tag on an attachment file
Done that, couple of standard regular ones here. One gives a new fat smiley, the other stays as text.
OK, now I see some smileys have been translated into the new horrible ones, and others not into anything.
On form I guess if I try to insert a smiley of my choice it will sometimes work and sometimes not, according to caprices predictable only by the disinformaticians.
I really miss the :rofl:, the :uh:, the :tongue: (or :tongue2:, whichever is lascivious), and the exploding clam. The new ones just don't have the same implications.
I guess there is a sanitisation cleanup operation and all the devils will get replaced by angels.
It's political correctness run amuck by gum ! Bring back the badness !!!
We have a list of smileys.
I see the list every time that I click on the "insert smilie" button. The problem is, we used the old ones in ways that matched their appearance rather than their title. For instance, I always used :uh:, which I think was supposed to indicate second thoughts, as a sign of paranoia or extreme wariness. I'm inclined to do the same with some of these, but that means that others might misinterpret my meaning. I just used "" as a "stink-eye", but it will likely be construed as confusion.
Here are the old smilies, I also preferred them. Can we get them back?
Same here. However for some unknown reason, I backed up the smileys back in 2009. I have them all.
