The site is good but the emoticons are absolute crap, surely they can do better?

They should use the ones from the MSN groups they are far superior to these.

NO. no more icons. we do our own here. [determined]

and no stoopid buttons to press and no moving ones. leave well alone.

Still think a sleep deprived one would be good. Wild eyed and slightly mad looking... Or is that too much to ask?

They may be outdated, but I am rather fond of them. When I first joined grin always made me laugh as it is such an evil grin, and of course hmm is classic. MN wouldn't be the same without them

Flamesparrow Thu 05-Feb-09 11:39:57

I am happy with them all as they are. No more, no less. I did like [frank] though!

grin makes me think people are slightly deranged, love it.

is either nice and happy, or pure bitch.

angry say it all

blush I always get the feeling is really open up floor and swallow

looks soooooooo upset

envy doubles up as [sick] (you just put envy <-- sick)

hmm is just inspired!

My only complaint is where I have had to zoom in with new MN, they are fuzzy

Oh God - not more emoticons. Psychomum will go crazy!!!

<one too many actuallys there>
<should have previewed> hmm

I actually used the [conf] emoticon here on mn, back in Jan. [smug]

I actually think the msn emoticons are crap/blousy/in-your-face awful.

Ours are very refined and understated and I like them that way.

hmm is inspired... and useful in oh so many situations.

Often I am overwhelmed by mners inner strength! I would love a 'strength' emotion bigtech! smile

thumbwitch Thu 05-Feb-09 10:52:40

it doesn''t have to be vomitous (understand the emetophobes pov entirely) but just a screwed up disgusted face.

thumbwitch Thu 05-Feb-09 10:51:05

not bad, BigTech, not bad - now what about the [ewww] one? grin

PlumBumMum Wed 04-Feb-09 13:07:53

a light bulb one would be good

PuppyMonkey Wed 04-Feb-09 13:06:46

I think leave it as it is.... you can have too much of a good thing.

smile

Tinker Wed 04-Feb-09 13:01:35

raisinggrrrl's one is very funny [laugh out loud emoticon]

But no, less is more here.

broguemum Wed 04-Feb-09 12:51:31

can we have a sleep deprived emoticon please? with mad staring eyes? It would serve as a caveat on all my posts at the moment.... Thank you..

ContainsMildPeril Wed 04-Feb-09 12:09:29

Sorry - that was supposed to say sentence LOL!

smile

ContainsMildPeril Wed 04-Feb-09 12:08:47

No matter what the repentance is if i put a smile in it it looks as if i'm being sarcastic.

smile.

Yes I think everyone agreed no vomit emoticon for that very reason last time it was brought up (no pun intended!) SauerKraut

SauerKraut Wed 04-Feb-09 11:48:44

Please, please, no vomit emoticon. A lot of emetophobes would be scared off...

JustineMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 04-Feb-09 11:46:25

Confused emoticon is designed and on it's way by the way... but there's a few things ahead of it on the list. Shall I ask BigTech to give you a preview?

Squirdle Tue 03-Feb-09 21:33:48

Soupy, the second one is fab!! We need that one!!

SoupDragon Tue 03-Feb-09 21:13:08

Actually, I can see a use for this one.

Ans possibly this.

Words are far more eloquent though, don't you think?

Gunnerbean Tue 03-Feb-09 21:04:37

Psychomum I'm only saying what I think, which I'm perfectly entitled to do as far as I'm aware.

I'm not saying I don't enjoy this site, I just don't particularly like the emoticons here.

So why don't you "feck off" yourself? Or "feck off" this thread if you think it's as pointless as you quite clearly do?

who was it who was queen of comedy porn typos? someone used to do it all the time!
