    Totally agree. I hate that smiley. Slight smile is a pretty sad smile, like someone trying to smile while beeing sad. Its really really ugly and I dont know how this could happen. In our Discord groups we are already really annoyed after a short while when typing ":)" and seeing this sad sad sad smile :( a good friend used to use :slightsmile: always when he was mad at me. :(

    Glad we weren't the only ones which want it changed again. You get a clear YES from me. 
    The current one looks like he's secretly concocting an evil plan..

    I genuinely like :slight_smile: being the default for :). Maybe it's being me being British, but the old smiley always bugged me because I couldn't express a gentle "no worries" smile with the two simple keystrokes I'd come to use to express it elsewhere.

    Then, as if someone had read my mind, it was changed.

    For those of us that express themselves more subtly in day-to-day life, :) as :slight_smile: makes perfect sense.

    There's still :D for when you want to do some beaming.

    I'm all for the :smiley: emote for :) mainly because I got used to it so much that now I screw up all my texts to my friends when I want to express my joy and end up looking underwhelmingly unexcited instead. BUT I see what I think should be rather simple solution to this: either give people the chance to choose which smiley to get for the :) or just add another combination that would translate into :smiley: I dunno like :)) or whatever you think it could be appropriate ^_^

    I can get on board with the Ariel's second suggestion!

    Would indeed love to be able to change the default, I always feel like the slight smile looks kind of sarcastic :sweat_smile:
