    What's wrong with our wink smiley? I me look at him, it looks like he's having a very hard time trying to wink, he got something in his eye, or he's wincing in pain.

    Moreover, it looks nothing like the original/usual wink smiley

    I mean, I don't mean to be rude to the person who made it, but am I the only one bothered by this?

    Well, the difference is that the first wink is just a wink. While the other one is more of a happy wink.

    It's really just the forum base that has the weird wink. And it's not exclusive to temp either, Sonic Paradox Forums has the same one.

    There was an issue with the naming of the icons, mainly p1ng2 ([​IMG]). it was intended to be :PSN:.

    p1ng ([​IMG]) looks like a simpsons version of dat ass to me. It's probably just the glasses, but I swear I see a few pixels below his mouth indicating him biting his lip.

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    The :wink: smiley refers to the anal wink. It's how physicians assess the functionality of your S2-S4 pudendal nerves.

    It's the face you make when a doctor strikes your bunghole with her reflex hammer.

    The anal wink isn't as awkward as you may think. [​IMG]

    Actually [​IMG] is the original wink smiley, not [​IMG] (which was added later).

    IPBv3 replaced [​IMG] with [​IMG].
