    A little trivial I know but we are intrigued enough to ask for your thoughts on this one.

    There are three options to choose from:

    :) (Yellow)

    :D (Light Blue)

    ;) (Dark Blue)

    Which do you prefer and if for a particular reason, make them known in this thread.

    Please make your vote using the poll. Votes close in 48 hours.

    Thanks.

    Light blue as its nice to see bespoke smilies to match the forums new look although I would go even lighter than the one above.

    Light blue - a little different to them being yellow like on the other forums

    Yellow. Way too dark at the moment in my opinion.

    Light blue --- Its light and blue is my favourite.

    Dark Blue --- Blue is my favourite again but dark is not attractive.

    Yellow --- |YAWNS| Boring and too old.

    Opps So my choice is defo Light Blue.

    Cheers

    Light blue for a change, with yellow a very close second.

    Damn i voted yellow but have now changed my mind to light blue. Take this into account, Anthony! Time for a change, and i also think yellow (the smilies) and blue (the theme of the forum) would clash somewhat nastily.

    If you message Anthony he can probably change your vote or delete it so you can vote again.

    Very close here... thought light blue would get lots more votes than the old school yellow.

    Another great idea would be to have them designed in the shape of the box from the new branding?

    Yellow for me !!

    Definately not dark blue, you can hardly see the expression the smile is showing.

    This had actually been suggested already, although it was deemed impractical to produce an entire set using that particular theme. We are looking for something more immediate for now.

    Keep the votes coming in.

    Yellow! I think the blue ones would get lost amongst the new design. As nice as it is, i think you can end up going too far.

    I am liking the little changes here and there btw Anthony. I was finding it all a blur to start with but the subtle changes to the thread design has made a vast improvement!

    Yellow for me as well - they stand out more compared to light blue / dark blue smilies.

    Yellow!!

    Theres too much blue going on.

    Iv always liked advertisers who choose a different colour for there sigs from the boring black writing colour. Its different from all the same norm.

    Light blue for me. The dark blue ones are harder to make out what the smiley actually is :D

    Yellow for me too.

    Another slogan for the forums
    "Come to the wholesale forums,
    where the new scheme is Yellow,
    and if your looking for suppliers,
    we can direct you to the right fellows.

    No never mind, it don't have the right ring does it, or roll of the tongue.
    But an A+ for effort surely, took many moons working on that. LOL
