    What type of issue are you having?:
    Website Issue
    Short description of the issue you're having:
    white smileys are hard to recognize
    Steps to reproduce your issue:
    The smileys shown in forum post texts are currently white with brightly colored eyes, tongues etc. This makes it hard to recognize what smiley it is; normal smiley, winkey face etc.

    As an example: these are all different smileys, but it's really hard to see which is which: -_-:blush::(^_^:3:):undecided:;)

      I can't remember where I got these from, but I'll see if they have dark version of them.

        I've added the bigger ones so it should be easier to see now.

        Thanks for the quick fix, bor3d. They're a lot easier to recognize now.

        Only downside is that they create extra spacing between lines wherever they appear:

        Some text on line 1.
        Some text on line 2.
        Some text on line 3 with a smiley :)
        Some text on line 4.
        Some text on line 5.

        Notice the extra spacing between line 2 and 3 to make room for the smiley. Not sure that's a real problem though. Guess only time will tell :p

        Yea, not to worried about that. Unfortunately there isn't much of a workaround that's perfect since there is no dark version of the smilies.

        Edit: I reduced the size slightly.

        Looks like an X-height issue between the text and the emoji, which could be fixed but to be honest I don't think it's much of an issue. All that would need to be adjusted is the text leading, but again if someone is making a serious text post they shouldn't be using emoji's anyways so meh.
