New Smilies

post #1 of 99
Thread Starter 
Do you guys like the new smilies I've made for the updated forums?
Or should we revert to the old "classic" UBB smilies we had?

Oh, and yes, there will be more to come such as the "eek" and "hrmm" smilies. I just haven't finished them all. If we choose to keep these, I'll work on them this weekend.

The old mad smilie was much better than the new one, but the rest are OK, though I like the others a bit better, they look more classic. Whatever you do, change the back to the old version. Just look at that thing, it doesn't look mad, it just looks wrong.

The new ones are good, but I agree with Matsu - mad smiley needs a bit of a touch up. Looks more like he's pinching off a rather large loaf than being angry.

lol, yeah. That one needs some work.

I still have all my layered Photoshop files for the smilies; so, touching them up won't be too difficult.

I like the old tounge-sticker-outer better than the new one too. The old one had a certain deviousness about himself. The new one looks too mechanical...like he's (she's?) at a doctor saying 'AAAHHH'.

lol...it was just a joke. The grinning one is the only one I made. Took a few mins in PS.

I can make a whole set if you like, though.

go for it
post #16 of 99
It's 16x16 rather than 15x15, not much bigger.

I'll make a few and see what people think.

Wasn't there a smiley that would shake his head from side to side, as if to say "no, that's not right" ??

Also, the ANGRY smiley used to have his teeth gritted. That was good.



Anyway, I like the look of the new ones. Can additional smilies be added as time goes by?

Old ones, definitely. I'm not a big fan of the new ones, plus the other ones seemed "sharper" and easier to see.

I'll also agree that the old one with the tongue looked more mischievious. The mad looked...madder.

Bah can't include them all, image number restriction.

Not animated yet, but if you make me an option I'll load up ImageReady and have at it.

spart: go for it. there was a 'surprised' one, confused, the smokey guy, an \ guy... etc.

a 'devil' one may be a cool idea as well.

I vote that polling should start over. There have already been 22 votes before you could even vote for mine.

Spart, that mad one just looks vicious!

ok i've stripped the poll until everyone has posted theirs.
post #30 of 99
I really prefer the old ones. They were sharper, cleaner, had alot more character and expressed their emotions much better than these do. No offence to the people that made them, I just really think the old ones were better.

Forget the iChats... those suck.

There's a fine line between sharp and pixelated. The old ones were pixelated.

Speaking of which, does anyone have the entire old set of individual, animated emoticons we had with UBB? I'd like to have them for reference and to steal the timing in the GIF animations.

Email me them if you like.

Spart's smilies look marginally better than the current set, particularly the angry one.

Even though the old smilies may have been "cleaner", they really look like ass next to AI's new appearance.

First vB AI post! Good work, team.

Okay the shadow looks like ass on the darker background and the glasses need work...I'll try back in a few.

I have a soft spot for this one over at MacNN: . Is something like it being added too?

I'm gonna pull iChat smileys off the table.

Too difficult, not that great.
post #39 of 99
Some of the new ones seem to lack a certain je ne sais quois....(thats for Powerdoc). I think the older tounge smily looked more devious because there was more curve to the mouth. I actually like the new angry smily...the other one seemed TOO angry. This is more of an annoyed smily . This is also my first post since the Great ChangeOver. Yay!!

Actually it gets really annoying over there at times, people adding 5 or 6 of these moving smilies to their threads... I'm going to have to vote NO on these.

Sorry gordy, I still love you, but I hate your suggestion. ha ha



*hugs gordy* there there...
