Lose the Razz Tongue guy, or not?

Postby TreeSprite on Sat Sep 11, 2010 1:50 pm

The tongue emoticons after adding the new emoticon set were changed from
Code: Select all
:p and :P
meaning the same thing, and some members are mildly upset that they now seem mean in some of their previous posts. The reason being that any posting with
Code: Select all
:P
now displays thusly: :P .

Therefore I am asking your opinions via poll. :)

I voted keep him, but my real suggestion would be to get rid of the "mean" razz and replace it with a neutral one, something along the lines of this: Image .

Yes, replacing it like GrendelMan suggested would be not bad. The mean one we still could keep in under something like
Code: Select all
>:P
or
Code: Select all
#razz#

I third GrendelMan's suggestion.
You have to be honest with yourself when you are writing. If that leads to somewhere unexpected then perhaps you really needed to go there.

I only care that ":P" should not be the mean one. whether it's changed to the yellow or green one it's the same- and keep the mean one but with a different code.

I agree with SSR--I don't see any reason to completely remove Razz Tongue, as long as it doesn't replace the nicer default in old posts anymore.

(For the record this is the 3rd time I've tried to voice my opinion. My post keeps vanishing.)

The current razz guy makes some originally light hearted posts look plain mean. We need to swap the smiley used for razz but keep the smiley being used currently in case it's ever needed. Well that's what I think anyway.
