"Embarrassed" smiley...


Don't know whether it's just me, but the "embarrassed" smiley () looks more like it's yawning. For a site like this, I think it's essential to have a smiley that properly expresses embarrassment. I certainly feel the need one after doing things like typing a command the wrong way round, so I decided to design one: 25x25 pixel PNG.

What do y'all think? Should it be a little smaller? Or do you like the existing one better?

Rob

You're right. It does not express embarrassment. Your smile is slightly different from the style of the other lq smilies, however. What about this, instead?

Agreed, those two are better than the present one. I need those after giving bad advice that screwed up somebody's Slackware installation in this thread:

The license for the smilie linked by colucix would allow its use here at LQ. If a sufficient number of members would like to see it added as a new smilie, I'd be happy to do so. Thanks for the feedback.

+1 from me too. It's a fairly standard icon elsewhere.

I vote for Robhogg's (assuming he plans to license it appropriately) because it expresses embarassment and, just as importantly, comes from an LQ member.

+1 for colucix's linked-to one.

Jeremy, how about a pole? Show the options and ask the membership's opinion.

See, I need better "embarrassed" smiley.

<edit>
Thanks, Jeremy. Now I can express myself better.

As in: Oops! I forgot the article after "need," above!
</edit>
