they don't have the same expressions as the ones i'm used to

eg.

:) - this should be a blank, amiable, close-lipped smile. but here it's got eyebrows and teeth and looks like it's up to no good

:D - no seperation between the teeth. looks blank whereas the old one looked really cheesy - it was that expression you get when you've told a really bad joke but you're still really pleased with yourself

:o i've never seen anyone use this one yet... it's called 'surprised' but it just looks a bit slack-jawed...'duhh'

:| - huh??

:mrgreen: aah, so this is where the real cheesy smile got to - they've hidden it up the back where you'll never find it

8O - we all know about this one :)

it reminds me of an old cartoon of a chinese bloke who used to smash things up a lot with mighty karate chops

it might have been from hong kong phoey but that doesn't seem right - anyone got any ideas what i'm talking about?

You're right, they're all = teh suck!!!111!!!

I don't like how they're virtually all yellow...

:P - this looks good but it toally doesn't seem right for 'razz'. i think i'll start using this one as my regular smiley face.

:wink: - this one sucks too. it's like someone trying to wink but only really getting their half-way...

:idea: i think i might get into photoshop and change some of these around!

There's a whole shitload at the PHPBulletin homepage (I manage a forum at work, and was looking into PHP, but think it's too hi-tech for the office servers...)...

not that i'll give it to you but it may be mildly entertaining to hear what lengths you'd go to...
