    Hey, it was a group decision. I was originally for the penguin until I made some stronger alternates. Don't focus on what the line-up doesn't include - focus on the many things it does. sigh...always a "half empty" crowd. :(

    Okay, I'm happy again. I really supported the penguin until more ideas came pouring in. We'll see how it goes. Hey - we're lucky to have Muppet smiles at all. :D

    I didn't mean you weren't for penguins, i meant you had nothing for Penguins .... well unless you got fish, and i doubt that. Gotta cater for the minorities babe !

    Seriously, i KNOW these are gonna be fantastic anyway, but i think maybe this all powerful penguin smiley debating group (they'll be running the whitehouse next !) should maybe have considered what characters might be popular with the people who will actually use them. I think the choice of characters is whats most important here rather than whether a character is winking or nodding or whatever, shame the Muppet Central 'fan favorite' didn't make the cut.

    The penguin idea was lost, but we added another more expressive fave in its place. One that some would like better than a penguin. Can't please everybody all the time. The staff slaved over the best choices and I spent a lot of time tweaking each smiley. The fact that it's all been caught up in the debate over one is discouraging. In the end, I agree with every decision that was made - except for it taking so long to get them up. I don't like to sit on finished work for very long. I prefer to make it and get it out there, but I know there are good reasons. :(

    BTW - Most major TMS characters are represented. Is Lew Zealand there? No. Gonzo? Hmmmm. Mmmmmmmaaaaayybe. LOL!

    Ah, just so long as Scooter sticks around, I'm happy.

    He is sticking around, right?

    Oh, no! He isn't! Tell me! He's sticking around! Please!

    Alright! Fine! You're not going to tell me.

    Are you keeping Scooter?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?


    Oh, well.


    Actually, I don't care who we get. I just can't wait till they come out! They sound good.

    Stay tuned Zack. They will be on-line as soon as possible when we have a forum upgrade later this week. The forum will be down for awhile when I do the software upgrade to the whole forum and add the new smilies. Once I know the exact times of the software upgrade, I will post an hour or two in advance in our "Announcements" folder.

    Congratulations, Kevin! I think that's the signal we've all been waiting for. Now that Kevin sees all of these smilies (X), we can go ahead and upgrade to the next level, giving him a whole new batch of Muppet smilies to anticipate! ;)

    J/K, Kevin. I really am glad you can see 'em now so I can post this one :o 'specially for you.

    Hasta la pasta!

    :confused: P.S. I just tried to post one of each of the current Muppet smilies above where the (X) is, but evidently that exceeds a limit as to how many smilies a person can post in one message. Yeah, probably best not to go gangbusters & overdo a good thing. Muppet Central lesson of the day: Always use Muppet smilies sparingly!

    Yayyy, F:oz! Now you can finally see what we're posting to you. Just in time for us to get new smilies (soon)...and for you not to be able to see those! :p :D j/k

    Jamie, I'm looking forward to WHATEVER the new smilies are. But after our vigorous campaign, Luke, don't you think that the penguin needs to give a concession speech when the new smilies are introduced? ;)
