Add an "Old Emoticons" option, please

I've used Skype since the very early days. I must say I really miss the old emoticons.  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?

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.

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 wasn't Skype originally made for the users?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...

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!
