What can I say. Microsoft bought Skype. Users' opinions no longer matter. It would be better Google bought Skype.
The new smileys are the worst thing to happen to Skype. The animations are jerky (to bring out character perhaps?), they're poorly drawn (those hard lines just make them look silly) and they just make you cringe looking at them. I've resorted to using characters that won't get turned into the emoticons just so I never have to see them! Five of my most well communicative contacts also express their dissatisfaction with them aswell. Please for the love of all that is good and well programmed bring back the old emoticons or add in an option to switch them back!
Newer = by no means always better!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
