Re: Add an "Old Emoticons" option, please

[ Edited ]

I've used Skype since the very early days. I must say I really miss the old emoticons. :sad: An option to show the old set would be fantastic - it doesn't sound too difficult to implement. Us old-timers with Skype remember many a chat conversation using those cute little faces and would love to have them back.

I think I'm gonna downgrade to an older version of skype. I hate the new version of skype to begin with, And the smilies just made It worse.

I agree, can't stand the sight of new emots, they're dreadful.

 

Once again - why can't we have an option to use older version?

Re: Add an "Old Emoticons" option, please

I'm sorry, but we won't be offering an "Show old emoticons" option. There are several implications, especially when it comes to cross-plattform compatibility which does not allow that for us.

Re: Add an "Old Emoticons" option, please

So... wasn't Skype originally made for the users? For us?

This action of yours (not giving a **bleep** about users's opinion), our dear Skype mods and admins - speeks clearly that - you seek to see your vision on march, rather than our dreams and wishes in action.

So in a way - you just emphasize: "We own you - listen to us." with big capital words.

 

Don't care about the community? No wonder Facebook outbests you already...

Re: Add an "Old Emoticons" option, please

how about changing at least the new ones to resemble the old ones? the new ones are really bad and I am pretty sick of using the 4.0 skype version just because I cannot stand the look of the new emoticons!
