    As a special Valentines gift, we will be rolling out new Muppet smilies for your posts. These will begin appearing in a few minutes. All of the regular smilies will be replaced with new Muppetized ones on all the posts in our forum. The smilies are designed by James Carroll.

    After the first set debuts, a few other emoticons will be added over the next couple days. Be on the lookout for them. Hope you guys enjoy the little gift!

    I still think one of Gorgon Heap or Luncheon Counter Monster or Behemoth, shown regurgitating something (not animated) would be awesome!

    These are awesome.

    Although usually, when I log in, I go to the oldest new messages first. I saw all of these smilies, and I was like :confused: .

    Then I saw off the Muppet smilies, and I kind of figured it out.

    I'm oh so smart...

    Later this spring, we will be upgrading to vBulletin 3.0. At that time there will be a lot of new Muppety touches throughout the forum.

    The additional smilies Jamie has been working on will be revealed soon...

    First of all, I'd like to say: nice graphics, Jamie! But...

    ...I have a couple of comments! Before I get told off for being a stiff-necked stick-in-the-mud, allow me to explain: I'm finding it very difficult to work out the emotion each of the new icons represents, compared with the 'classic' smileys. I find the graphics to be a bit too 'busy' - it takes me several seconds to identify the expression on the Muppet's face (I'm still not quite sure what Pepe - it is Pepe, right? - is expressing!). They're just about Ok on a 1024x768 LCD panel, because the display is pin-sharp, but on a 21" CRT at 1600x1200, the icons are pretty much illegible. For example, I'm typing this on my laptop, about 12 inches away from the screen, and I can see - if I look closely - that Ernie is sticking his tongue out. On the CRT next to me however, where I normally sit much further back (to reduce eye-strain), it's just about possible to tell that it's Ernie, and that's it.

    I don't know if either of these would be possible with the forum software, but how about a) providing both the 'Muppet' and the 'classic' smileys, so that posters can select which set they'd prefer to use in their posts; or b) allowing the user to select which set of icons they'd prefer to see when viewing/making posts?

    Anyway, this isn't intended to be a whine or flamebait, it's just my thoughts! :-D

    Pepe is rolling his eyes. I had trouble telling as well.
