I want tickers and avatars .... I appreciate others may have an opinion on this, which is lovely, and good for you. I'm not going to be dissuaded though.

The site is a smorgasbord board of pointless lary coloured sales pitch and bumph.

It's bursting with venomous spite and bilious stupidness some days (amongst the stalwart niceness soldiering on regardless) , so on those days I'd like to see a spot of cheer.

A unicorn crapping a rainbow, or a humorous meerkat picture with a whimsical caption.

I want kittens and puppies and flowers.

I want tickers telling me how long it was since the poster last handed out grips.

We've been told Mumsnet is moving on.

If it is, I want the the future to be sparkly and twee to the fucking max.

<<resolute>>

<it's been 27 seconds since I last posted ffs on a Christmas thread in fucking MAY>

Nocomet Thu 22-May-14 10:34:13

As requested

Maryz Thu 22-May-14 10:35:02

While we are at it, can we edit posts?

I don't want to edit my posts, I just want to edit other people's tickers grin

Sigyn Thu 22-May-14 10:41:31

What would be nice is if we could have a choice of pastel background colours <muses>

And those cutesy emocions! They are great because if you are an adult woman, having a range of "don't take me seriously, I'm really just a kewpie" emocions is marvelous.

HoneyDragon Thu 22-May-14 10:43:09

Yes, a delayed edit facility please.

Sparkly shit

And tickers

How about coloured thread titles so you could have a Brown Klaxon to warn against poo

Yes!!

I want sparkly, glittery tickers

It's been 7 minutes since I last rolled my eyes at a thread

It's been 4 minutes since I spotted a troll

It's been 11 minutes since I felt like a terrible parent.

I would like to be able to edit other people's posts and tickers

I want colour. And glitter. And sparkles.

It's been 1 hour since someone mention bullying or cliques or royalty

grin
grin

It's been 30 seconds since someone mentioned entitled

It's been 1 day since someone noticed a baby drinking come out of a bottle.

MNHQ

ARE YOU TAKING THIS ON BOARD?

Hmmmmmmn

Are are you all trying to look really busy in the hope someone else will deal with it?

The only acceptable answer is

Yes Honeydragon, as always you are right. We've contacted tech and it will all be rolled out by next Wednesday.

GingerRodgers Thu 22-May-14 11:06:29

blushshock Tantrums!!

I hope you meant coke?!

grin

Maryz I love having a good 6 months worth of ffs from you about Christmas, glad it's started early this year grin

TortoiseUpATreeAgain Thu 22-May-14 11:10:48

This kind of thing?

(I would have gone more specific, but I couldn't find the thread)

Its been 5 minutes since I failed to proof read my posts grin

I meant COKE

FourForksAche Thu 22-May-14 11:19:40

gasps at tantrum's epic typo grin

FourForksAche Thu 22-May-14 11:20:23

Tortoise, that looks disturbingly like comic sans [narrows eyes]

DrankSangriaInThePark Thu 22-May-14 11:23:50

Actually, I think, on reflection, that all things considered, and at the end of the day, the whole site should have comic sans as its default, n'est-ce pas?

....and Tantrums, leaving aside the typos, if it's been as long as 4 minutes since you've seen a troll, then you ain't putting the hours in girl.

FourForksAche Thu 22-May-14 11:38:55

it's a well known fact* that comic sans can induce rage and hallucinations when used in the wrong hands.
