I have a sad story.

Every day, a strapping young lad comes to these wonderful forums. He contributes often, but he has an issue. Each time this handsome sir makes a post (complimenting darkcrusader's work, for example), he watches in horror as his favorite smiley face is transformed into a horrible, green, snarling monster. Sure, he could just type ": D" but that looks dumb. He could disable smileys in user CP, but then everyone else could see the ugly beast.

...:D
---------
But seriously, can we change this? :D is more of a trollface smiley, not a happy face. It comes across as a butthead post, instead of a happy post.
On another forum I used to use, they had the same smiley register as :D and left colon-capital-D alone.
Does V-bulletin allow for this?

Just type o: instead, and :p.
But I use :D more.

Wait I had an idea
what if somebody who was good at sprites did up a bunch of CS-related emoticons? Cool? Tarted? You decide!

:D

Re: Green smiley face.

Well okay then. I did think it looked pretty bad. I think it's probably the worst one there, actually. In fact, there's only one that I DO kinda like, which is :D . Anyway, maybe you could change it, bind it to something else, or just get rid of it all together.

Re: Green smiley face.

Well, since there are a few buttons for the new theme that aren't made yet, I guess while I fix that problem I might as well make emoticons too, but I'm not so sure if Andwhy would accept that or not.

Re: Green smiley face.

@Ladnon: NO.

Does : o still translate to : )?

:o

I guess so.

a new set of sprites would be cool, but for now just disabling works fine

I don't see the resemblance <.<

Re: Green smiley face.

I'd be happy to add in a few new emotes/change the tags for the current ones. I'm pretty sure I'm able to, and honestly I've never really liked this forums' emotes much either. Aside from :o. :cool: is so :cool: he'll :eek: your :o.

Or maybe I could just deck us out with GG2's emotes

Re: Green smiley face.

It looks more like a wide grin then a trollface. To each their own I guess.. *shrug*

If I change it to mrgreen then I will need to make a replacement. If you guys can show me a good ":D" emote from another forum then I can recreate that one in the same visual style as our other emotes.

Re: Green smiley face.

D:
But we were saying that :D should have no smiley associated with it.
I've never met a :D replacement that I liked.
