The New Look SDMB.

Yeah, cause those are SDMB custom smilies.

I really hope they can bring back the old look. A large part of the appeal of this board is the emphasis of substance over style, and this ain’t helping.

Since this is the Pit, I’d like to take the opportunity to say how much I dislike the smilies.

Yeah, I am sure that my posts have shown that I have trouble expressing sarcasm. I’ll get right on that.

I disagree.

The old one too often just looked like he was looking up at the words above him.

At least this one :o actually looks a little embarassed now, instead of like it’s ready to suck cock.

:confused: looks confused. The old one just looked like a purple blob.

:stuck_out_tongue: still doesn’t look like it’s sticking out it’s tongue. . .more just like a lesser version of :smiley:

I’ve an old post here, “The Smilies Here Fuckin’ Suck” where I go into the old ones in more detail, but I’m too lazy to search for it. It’s not going to have the same impact anymore anyway.

If you’re using Internet Explorer, hold down the CTRL key and press F5. That’ll get you the latest SDMB graphics.

:eek: It’s a bit of a random toy-toon mix now, isn’t it?

Just give us Smashie. That’s all the animated smilie we’d ever need. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm… Smashie.

That is the first step onto a slippery slope.

I give you the Sarcasm Mark!

:rolleyes: This one is just no fucking good at all. Where’s the disdain?

Does Cecil know about this mess? :cool:

Man, those old smilies are really starting to look dated.

Two-bit amateurish shading?

Dots for eyes?

What is this, 2004?

So I’m not having a flashback? Good.

I have to say I like it better so far. It’s a lot sleeker. It has that small, shiny factor I so adore in all things Internet.

But other than the smilies, I think I like it.

I’m guessing the green dot beside your name indicates you’re currently active on the boards.

Mine means, “Go”.

It’s one of those things like the refrigerator light. It’s going to drive me CRAZY wondering what it looks like when I’m not online.

What if EVERYONE ELSE’S is one color, but mine just says, “Good, he’s gone.” :frowning:

So what’s the deal with all the people who don’t have “charter member” (or any title) under their names?

Anyone else notice that some people seem to have lost their membership status tag? Like PinkMarabou is a blank.

Hummer smilie is gone, and people are happy? Fuck mon, that was one sexy little smilie. I miss her already.

Those appear to be people who signed up since we went pay to post. Admin has been saying that their titles would eventually become “member”. I guess stripping them of titles completely is a start.

I disagree with that, by the way. I think all of us regular members should all have the same title, whatever it is.

Right now, it’s saying, “Shhh, he’s still here.”
