    These should appear like:

    However, since they are the same code, 'closedtongue', they both look the same and for some reason default to the frown.

    As you can see these two entirely different emotions can cause quite some mixups!

    Another interesting emoji is :eek:, which is written ": o". (without the space).

    In the Old Board, ": o" was an embarrassed face; now it's a shocked face.

    As a result of this, I expect that a lot of old posts will now contain a shocked face where there's supposed to be an embarrassed face.

    Thanks for bringing this up publicly. I've noticed such issues before. AFAIK, about two pairs of smileys have that issue. I don't use a wide array of emoticons, though, so I often forget about the issue.

    (Shilling side note: Psst, Ian... Maybe you could also add a polished version of the old smileys to the already available roster ? ;))

    while we're on the subject, the eye-rolling smiley we have now doesn't look like eye-rolling in any way, shape, or form

    what we have looks like this: :rolleyes: it should look like this: [​IMG]

    the current one isn't an expression of sarcasm or unbelieving tone, it's the "I've met Excalibur" face from Soul Eater
