Speaking of smileys, I may have an emotional range of a teaspoon, but I can't tell what most of those emoji faces mean. Each time I pull up the emoji palette in an application, I'm always stuck at which to pick, despite of seemingly wide choice. They don't convey any emotion I can possibly want to express. Don't get me wrong, they may be perfectly suited to express a notion of a pile of shit but this is not what I need from an emotion. And even with faces, wtf ?
For the purpose of illustration I've picked a few, but you can imagine the rest. Here, see for yourself, and mind that it is an international standard, no less.
Please, PLEASE, use something like Kolobok, or hire a designer and at least make your smileys look like Skype's.
