Topic: Edit the Boy Smiling Emote to Look More Like the Girl Version

Look at these two emotes.



See the difference?

The boy version of the emote looks like he's losing his sanity, and is about to throw a chair across the room.

The female version, on the other hand, looks calm and stress free. It seems like she's about to go on a nice picnic with her friends and family.

I'd like the ACC staff to edit the boy smiling emote so that he smiles just like the girl version of the emote.

Apparently it used to be even worse. I can't link it at the moment, but one time I was browsing old ACC on the wayback machine, and saw the emote smiling MORE. So I appreciate you fixed this somewhat.

I hope you someday fully fix it when you have the freetime.

While I disagree that "The boy version of the emote looks like he's losing his sanity, and is about to throw a chair across the room," I do also feel that there should be consistency with the male and female emotes. The boys and the girls should both have the same smile.

Thank you for agreeing.

I hope someday this gets fixed. I never understood why the boy and the girl had different smiles.

Eh, I think that the emotes are fine the way they are. The smiles just seem like warm, regular smiles.

Also these emotes have been around for over a decade, and there is a familiarity/sentimental value placed on them.

It's a simple fix. It's not like they're being replaced. It's just changing two pixels on one emote.

In almost all AC games (Can't speak for GC), male humans have wider mouths than females. Not only that, but it isn't entirely uncommon for certain cartoon styles to give females smaller mouths/males larger mouths, so it's possible it's just the artist's rendition/freedom of, well... mouths (And now I am curious who made the emotes).

So.. there isn't anything to "fix", really. It's intentional.

No, the boy's mouths aren't wider. They are simply rounder(girls have triangle mouths), so your argument is invalid.

I think this idea is worth discussion, but as someone pointed out before these emotes have been the same for some time and some users might have become attached to their appearance. I would also like to point out that the eyes/eyebrows? are also different for the boy and girl smiling emote and only reducing the size of the smile might not end up with an emote that looks calm or stress free like the girl.  

I don't know all that goes into changing emotes, but I think that if this idea gains some support it is something that can possibly be discussed to change.

Actually, those two extra pixels on the girl's eyes are eyelashes, but thanks for your opinion.

I beg to differ.

Also, I wasn't trying to say that wanting to change the emotes was bad or anything, was just pointing out that the mouth difference on the current ones probably wasn't a mistake.

Not really wider, at least not by much. Besides, I just want the emotes to be equal.

The boy has eyelashes with the frown face. Again I think if the goal is to make him seem less over the top with emotion then changing the smile alone might not be enough to do it.

Hmm, so I edited the smileys so that they had matching smiles.. looks different alright!


Joking aside, though, I really did give them the same smile
Here

I guess it WOULD look cuter but I guess this is a discussion meant for other people, I'm indifferent to how he smiles

Also.. looking closer, I think the male sad eyelashes are supposed to be tears since they're sort of blue/grey but.. I guess we will never truly know xD

^That does look cute.

I looked around and found an old discussion thread about the emotes and their look. I will post this thread there and possibly get some discussion from other Staff.

It would still be helpful to know if users support this change, so please keep posting your opinions.

The first image gave me nightmares.

Looks great. It's not the end of the world or anything if it doesn't get changed so I'd like to see people's opinions on this.

The edited version _AnimalCrossing gave is cuter in my opinion.

The 's smile emote was actually changed a few years ago to what you're seeing now. It used to be just like the 's smile. Titandwedebil did this change and also created some of the newer emotes. Not sure if he still has the old smile one or not. This could probably be voted via poll.

So that means there were three versions of the male smiling emote. Wow.

As you can see today, the anniversary versions of the emotes both have the same, shorter smile. The normal emotes should be the same.

The "boy smiling even more" version can still be seen on the Halloween version of the emote, if you're wondering.

I personally don't see it as a huge issue, to be honest. Emotes are meant to help express how someone feels or show the tone of someone's message. So I don't think its appearance is that much of a problem.

It would be a bit more professional if the smiles were the same on the male and female emotes, but it doesn't cause any problems as far as I can see. I didn't even notice the difference until it was brought up.
