Does anyone else think Discourse smilies are horrible?


#1

The regular “:)” smiley for example looks like im laughing out load while im just looking to do a pleasant smile. My forum community is forcing me to change them. Is there a simple way to do this?

You have 4 different Emoji sets to pick from, I am sure you will find one of them suitable

Is that susposed to be available in version 1.2.0.beta3 because all i got is this:

It is definitely in version 1.2 proper, not sure why you are on on old beta when we released 1.2 stable quite a few weeks ago.

Eh, selecting a different emoji set doesn’t change the fact that the default ASCII-smiley to emoji table is… weird, and it’s not even customizeable via plugins. :confused:

Does this by @cpradio still work?


(cpradio) #7

To my knowledge it does.

Edit: Just tested it against latest, and it still works.

I would agree that the standard :slight_smile: :) smiley looks overwrought in the default Discourse smiley set and in the alternatives as well. It definitely looks more like a LOL, or at least a hearty chuckle, than a simple smile. :smiley: :smiley: or :grinning: :grinning: look more appropriate. I think it’s the squinting eyes of :slight_smile: that give it the wrong attitude.
