Change the Smiley Cat Emoji

The Smiley Cat emoji. You have probably seen it. If not, here it is:

If you're looking at it from the close-up enlarged image, then it's perfect; you can see the smile, it's great.

However, here's the issue. When looking at it inside of the comments at 100% zoom, you can't see the smile. It looks more like a scared cat to be honest, because instead of looking like this: It looks like this: . If you don't think it's meant to be a smile, it is. Just look at the code to create it in the comments: _:)_ It's a smile.

I think that the emoji should be changed to make the smile a lot more visible to convey what it's actually supposed to be, instead of just a “hmm” face.

Here's a quick mock-up I made of the new design:

How do you like it?

Yeah, that's the one. In the comments, you can barely see the smile.

Support, I noticed this a lot while using it in the Happy Birthday, Scratch! studio, where I felt it was more neutral, and it kind of annoyed me.

Is this where you thought this too?

I like this idea, I used that emoji to welcome a new user and in the end, it just looked creepy. It'd doesn't need to be insanely happy, but just a bit more smile-like.

I like it. But we may need to use the smaller comment size to do a fair comparison.

I don't know why, but I just feel like the blush is a bit odd for the Scratch Cat. I respect blush being used in other things, its' just I feel it's a bit weird on the Scratch cat, unless it's a specific blush emoji.

OK, here's how the emoji actually looks in the comments:
And here's how it could look:

(I got the first one using the Snipping Tool on the normal emoji at 100%, and got the second one through barely editing the first one.)

I was worried that it wouldn't look much better after you made it the small size, but this is clearly not true. I already supported, but that looks much better.

Tbh I thought that was the neutral face. I didn't know it was a tiny smile. XD

So yeah, so that it'll become less confusing.


I'm running a small experiment, mind taking this?
