    Sorry if this isn't the right place to put this.

    1) This: :rolleyes:, it says it's supposed to be eyes rolling, to me, it looks like a "dreamy" face, like the person daydreaming about something. Is this just me, or has this icon got to change?

    2) What does it mean when it says "Time-Out" under someone's name when they post, is it the same as a temporary ban?

    Thanks!

    1) Take it in context.

    2) Yes, it's the same as a temporary ban.

    This should probably go in the site and forum feedback forum.

    not really, the site forum feedback is more to express views about the site to the gods, this is a community matter

    The :rolleyes: eyes are rolling upwards and indicate sarcasm. Although in my opinion a lot of people miss this fact and take some users' comments too seriously!

    And here's a quote from the MacRumors FAQ for your other question:

    I think the emoticon could be used both ways. ie:

    • Ahh, Macbooks are so beautiful. *imagines* :rolleyes::apple:
    • Aren't PCs much better than Macs! They're so cool. :rolleyes:
    Always depends on context. :D

    ...And the verdict is ":rolleyes:" is fine. By the way, :confused::(:D:cool::apple::mad::)

    I find it interesting that most people who want a "new look" or "change" to this site are new users. The majority, probably over 90% of the users, like how things are.

    Interesting.

    Keep the avatar the way it is.

    I think a site revamp would be nice, not an overhaul, keep the same theme and just modernize it a bit.

    If you hover over a smilie (with most web browsers), you'll see an explanation.

    This smilie --> :rolleyes: says "Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)" as a hint that it should be used with care.

    A handy tip! Didn't realize that. I wasn't confused, but if I ever become so, this will be useful.

    Coming back to my old thread from a year ago, the icon looks fine now.

    Hankster, your theory is correct.
