    Default did the smilies change for everyone?

    So did the smilies in the forum change for everyone or am I delusional again?

    The most recent vbulletin update added them and wrecked my custom smiley table to boot. Hooray.

    Yeah they did. I just figured the janitor tripped over a bucket or something when he was down in the basement.

    Ha, and there was me thinking that the new smilies were (marginally) better than the old ones , I never really liked the last set of smilies as the wink looks too much like the big grin . Haning said that the 'wink' on this set isn't that great. Whatever happened to the very original set of smilies from a few years ago?

    Ohh... Yea, I'm not arguing that the current iteration of the default smiley pack is worse, it's actually quite an improvement, what I was complaining about is the fact that since they changed them and the reference pointers to them changed that a number of issues related to base image handling have cropped up. It's pretty silly that a cosmetic change that *doesn't* effect any layout feature can cause issues.

    Aaaaaaannnndddd... Yea, there are a lot of things here I would like to do and have toyed with in the past that are simply painful and complicated to work around because of the draconian "hooks" system that vbulletin uses. Please reference the wiki here, probably one of the best "hooked" solutions out there and it still have unbelievable issues with regards to login credentials being referenced directly from the vbulletin core database. Theres also the gallery system here(outside vbulletin proper) that had a hooking system that failed if you looked at it wrong... it became a stand alone product because of it.

    There are certain things that make more sense while drunk and sadly the sql-apocalypse that is vbulletin only starts making sense somewhere right past the comatose stage. Some of that is not the implicit fault of vbulletin though. For example: http://www.blueshoes.org/en/developer/php_cheat_sheet/

    Please note that $x = "false"; returns as true in PHP boolean logic land, furthermore 15 and negative 1 are also true. To further complicate it, you can feed it strings. Bananaanananaaphone is also true by the sheer virtue of not being zero yet null comes back as false...

    You know what, I'm just going to quit this conversation while I still am able to think of myself as being ahead... which would conversely come back as true.
