Norks is on her hobbyhorse again

Hello tech geniuses (a bit much?)

Please could you sort it so that both [ thanks ] and [ flowers ] make thanks

I am not the only person who would like to put in a bunch of flowers for a birthday, or get well or to cheer someone up, and I type in [flowers] to try to get the flowers. I see it all over the place.

Can't be tooooooo tricky, can it? It isn't adding to the list of emoticons, it isn't sparkly, it isn't a ticker..

Thanks

thanks

Tech geniuses, they'll love that!

<flattery gets you everywhere you know>

Will find out for you Norks....

See, clearly what was needed here was the most INSIGHTFUL and CONSIDERATE member of MNHQ, and you came along just at the right time Catherine

(are you buying this?)

I am grateful, though, and so will LOADS of other people be
thanks [flowers]

This is a good idea!

Why are a bunch of flowers only for thank you????

Hadn't used that one [not here often enough] but yy could be for all sorts of flower giving opportunities.

It's just to do with the history of how they came about, Mary. But it is cOnfusing.

doctor is wise thanks

mary brilliant name! in Will &Grace, Ellen Degeneres is a nun with a confectionary company called "We have a friend in cheesecake" ...makes me giggle ever time I think of it thanks

Ooh, and a little one for bumpage purposes thanks

I agree!

Add my name to the petition. I'm stupid always trying to remember if it's thanks or thank you.

It would definitely make me a nicer person if I was handing out flowers all day. Think of the wider reaction. Think of the joy it will bring! Won't someone think of the carnations????

Hooray for the magnificent and proud CUNT thanks

The campaign may be growing. Please ask your friends to pop over and register support. thanks

I agree. When someone is going through a really tough time and I want to give them flowers it feels wrong to type in [ thanks].

Hooray for elephants thanks. That is one of the reasons. I do think we need to be able to type in either word, so that people can use both, and those who are used to typing [ thanks] can still do it.
The number of threads where someone writes [flowers] and then pops up on the next post to say 'oops, I meant thanks

Hooray for elephants

I like that sentence. thanks grin

I am 150% behind Norks' proposal and think MNHQ and especially the Tech Department at HQ are the best in the entire world. thanks

::mutters:: How was that, Norks? Too much?

Nah, tee let's lay it on REALLY THICK. Poor tech bids only ever get crap thrown at them usually.
thanks

Ahem, that should say 'tech BODS' thank you iPad gnome.

Well, DarrenMumsnet knows how I feel about him ::flutters eyelashes:: and Tech, the marvellous Tech, the wonder Tech, what else can we possibly say about the practically perfect in every way Tech? thanks thanks

Tech who writes witty 'the site is down' messages, trying to convince us they aren't down the pub.

Darren, who brings us loverly (well, nearly, it's getting there) apps for our phones and tablets.

I cannot think of any other specific Tech names as I've not finished my first cuppa this morning, but if I could I would extol their virtues with lashings of wine, biscuits. brews and thanks.

Hmm, I drive for four hours to deliver DS to SPACE SCHOOL and come back to find tumbleweed sad

There is a campaign going on here. I need to self-bump thanks
thanks for those who are here with me

thanks
