I hate them.

The only one way to fix for now - disable smiles at all.

 

Restore old smiles!!!

Re: I hate new Skype smiles.

I like that the latest version of skype does not pop up every morning, but now the new smileys, they are quite ok, except the : P sign. I guess the artist hasn't really clue, what it looks like and what people use it for. its ment to represent your tongue tip showing from your corner of the mouth, as of when you are very concentrated of doing something. But in the new smiley it just shows the tongue like a little kid and thats not okay, thats not okay at all. Picture yourself writing to your customer that yes, I am at it, one moment : P . Its kind of bizarre, when you just show off your tongue to him/her and very sexist. not good, not good at all. Other than that, skype is great for immediate and probelem-free file sending and making international calls. And its made in Estonia. That proves something. So keep it up and plese fix the : P sign. Thanks.

Re: I hate new Skype smiles.

There is very little to like about ANY of the latest Skype features:

  • New smileys are unnecessary
  • Toolbar is too big and less easy to use than the previous version
  • All the advertising banners - hate those!
  • Cannot control the 'senders' video image as before.
  • Video snapshot is stupidly cumbersome

So to heck with it - I'm rolling back to my previous version until the geeks get a grip and 'unimprove' the mistakes they've made in the latest version.  Have they never heard of "Don't fix what ain't broke!"....
