After all, you're going to need to replace them with the Burn's NIght smileys soon?

Only 350 days to gofgrin

Um .... Burns Night is on the 25th January. So I'm looking for the little Scottish Tam O Shanter which goes on the smilies - not the Santa Christmas smilies which should now be long gone grin

I'm not amused <cats bum mouth>

And I can now see that there have been a number of threads over the years asking where the Tam O Shanter went. It seems to have come and gone at Tech's whim on an annual basis hmm

But its only two days after Christmas day if you're an Orthodox or Coptic Christian. And St Nick was Greek. fgrin

Ah, I wanted an easter bunny smiley.

I thought they were always there if you knew the codes.

tbwink the problem is remembering the codes if it isn't something obvious like dragon or tardis, or doing a bit of lateral thinking to work it out.

FruJustFru Tue 10-Jan-17 17:52:38

I tried to remember the damn code - but I couldn't <wails>

Lorelaiandrory Tue 10-Jan-17 17:55:18

But will they now not need to stay all year as it is after 12th night

TheMortificadosDragon Tue 10-Jan-17 18:02:39

The code isn't obvious tbh.

FruJustFru Tue 10-Jan-17 18:05:21

I know <another wail> and I've been here for years <sobs>

Oh fuck it, fgrin fgrin

paxillin Tue 10-Jan-17 18:07:23

TheMortificadosDragon Tue 10-Jan-17 18:11:18

I worked it out by c&ping yours to see what it was. tbgrin But why tb? I'd have thought either bn (burns night) or tos or to for tam o'shanter. tbconfused
