Yes we are making changes and this is one of them. Those old smilies were ugly, in a bad format and out right outdated.

Nope. They are removed. There is no option in vB to use 1 smiley set over another. This was done for a good reason. That thread says it all.

I am not hating, i am stating simple truths. Ask anyone that knows anything about image formats. Ask them what is better gif or png for a image format. If they tell you gif then they dont know anything about image formats cause gif is old (Like Windows 95 old) and PNG is a far better format to use.

The old ones were garbage and the default ones. Making changes means sacrifices. the smilies were the first of many sacrifices.
