more emoticons - list preferences here

The options are so limited


like there is no laugh ones like :lol or :rofl or for frustration :headwall
or a hope one where you have an emoticon is praying :hope

or to expess shock like :jaw or :crazy

or the express love as you think the pup or kitten is a love :Wub

I don't know if this link will work but it shows all the one from another forum that I am used to using http://forum.greytalk.com/index.php?...CODE=emoticons

I don't expect all to be used but feel a bigger variety would be nice

These 2 the :king: & :queen: never seem to get used so better to replace them with something that would be used more often

Ok - We 'll look into it again.

There was a technical issue of all the emoticons showing up on one screen...we'll try to solve it this week.

In the meantime - please list a few emoticons that people feel are missing or would be useful.

Too many emoticons makes the reply boxes larger and lets you see less screen without scrolling - but we're prepared to add maybe 10 more....so please list your preferences.

thx

Marko

a head banger! for sure (like OG posted) and the laugher, the drooler
we need a drinker!

These..:king: :queen: , the two flags even.. are not really used often, and maybe could be replaced with ones that offer a broader scope.

Emoticons for frustration, lots of laughs,and tears would be nice additions.
Maybe a candle for comfort/postive thoughts.
Another one for would be good too.

I asked for the clown to be removed months ago, and Marko said no. So now I've gotten attached to the little freak and you all want him gone?!

As for these: :queen: :king: we don't use them often, but sometimes they come in handy. Like "We made Boo a cake of 3 different kinds of canned food mixed together with some of his favorite cookies poked into it..:king:" lol No?

And if we get rid of the flags, what will my signature be?

Ok, regardless, I don't mind what happens as long as there aren't any puking ones (please).

Especially no puking ones with sound effects-eeewwww!

I feel like I need a "D'oh!" or a bone-head one. Not that I'm prone to doing silly things or anything .

I would love to see a head-banging frustration emoticon and one that shows shrugging shoulders or something like, "Im sorry I tried" with the slanted smile.

new smilies

Hi everyone,

Ok - based on your suggestions and other input we added 9 more smilies.
(Frustrated, shrug, off-topic, pray, RIP, candle, yell, cat, cloud9)

Note - none of them are animated because we find that they are distracting.

Thanks for your patience and we hope you like them

Marko

Thanks for the new smilies Marko.


I agree with Prin....where's the doggie one? You should really trade the downright ugly clown for a cute doggie.


I also agree with Mahealani that looks like he's covering his ears.

Ok Ok - The clown is dead. Let's light a candle for him

We added a new doggie smilie in it's place.

I can see that the shrug smilie can look like it's covering it's ears. BUT it also does look like it's doing a shrug...doesn't it?

Thanks all,

I do believe that this will be the last addition to the smilie set for a while, so thanks for all the input everyone!

Three cheers the ugly clown is gone.

Very cute doggie.

Thanks, Marko.

I guess if you look real close it kind of looks like a shrug. but more like "I don't want to listen"

Either way, it works! It can be a shrug or "La la la, I'm not listening!"

I like the shrug guy. If he's covering his ears, where do his arms originate?

Marko, I got attached to the clown too... Maybe, he could replace this guy: I don't see anybody using that guy unless they want to start a fight...

btw, thanks for the and the and the - I have a feeling I'm gonna be using them the most.

I thought of that, and you might be right. If so we'll change back to the clown. But we should at least give it a chance.

For now the clown is dead I he is in a better place.
oh sweet freaky clown.

Ok, we'll try out the off topic guy....

Mr Creepy Clown, I won't forget you. (temporarily)


We have a lot of angry smilies. Are we angry folks here or what?
(it's ok, because the happy ones outnumber the angry ones...)

Thanks Marko for all the new emoticons...we love them!!
I am so floating on now!
However, I was soooo hoping for the guy who bangs his head against a brick wall...I wonder where people go to get that one?
Gees, how angry this little guy is lmao!

OMG...No !!! Pleeeese cremate him.

I think we need to give a chance too. Lots of times we go a tad bit off topic in some posts. I just wish he wasn't frowning though.

And, the party guy looks like a dork. Couldn't we find a better party guy? The crazy guy looks like he'd be a more fun at a party.

And, I think we need a "Congratulations" smilie so if you decide to axe the off topic guy :sad: then replace him with a congratulations smilie.
