I like the classic ones, personally.

I think it kind of needs to be that way, just to make things interesting. After all, how many could you really make using the original style pixel art? I will agree that it looks a little strange in places though, but I've really grown to like them.

[hr]Genius I just suggested in the logo thread that there could be an option in our profiles to choose which logo we see.
[hr]A random header script like pouet.net would be better. I'm pretty sure I mentioned that somewhere here...

That's pretty much my main reason for wanting them replaced. The retro look is fine, it's just that some aesthetic consistency would be nice.

Would maybe something like this be acceptable?

It does look rather good but I still think the ones we're using look good. :) I guess there could be both, the new ones written like :n:D, the 'n' to tell they're newer... Or would it be too much? No idea.

It's lovely, an anti-aliased smiley! That hit the nail.

I can bear the old emotics as long as they don't have hard edges on my laptop.

Meh, call it conservative if you will, but I'd like to just stay with the old pixely ones.

There's something about the new one that makes Keen look like he's got some sort of combover thing happening.
