Since we are on the topic of smileys, why is the regular Bb smiley so faded looking? He looks almost like a ghost of a smiley that has passed on or an apparition of sorts.

:):):):):)



This is what a healthy smiley should look like.

I'm sorry Kim. I sometimes forget there is a language and culture difference. Where I come from musicians use the term "Bb" to mean regular or ordinary. A Bb trumpet is a regular trumpet. Ones in the key of A, C, or D are special trumpets. A Bb clarinet is a regular clarinet as opposed to an A clarinet. A Bb hamburger is a regular hamburger. A Bb notebook is a regular notebook and so on. A Bb smiley face is the regular, ordinary smiley face, not one of the variations.

Language and cultural difference aside, IMO that's a bit of a far stretch to extend the same kind of reasoning to emoticons and expect others to get it. Anyway, to the question: yes the regular smileys are ugly. They came with one of the vBulletin upgrade we did in the recent past. That's why Mike and I are uploading new, better looking smiley whenever we come across some nice ones.
Thanks Kim. That's far better than the Bb answer I was expecting.
