It's just occurred to me that we haven't really got a celebratory emoticon.

And it would be nice to have one.

star is great but it's more like a reward or congratulations.

It would be nice to have something like popping a champagne cork or setting off fireworks.

Which meant whoohoo, woopwoop, fandabbydosy, hallelujah, pom poms, whoopde doo.

Sure you get the picture.

There really isn't one is there.

Phone people can access those but I'd like a specific MN one please.

What do you think?

Appreciate you might have more pressing stuff till Monday wine

No-one agree with me then? grin

And I've just noticed bear in the list, I thought that was a secret one.

yes I'm bumping

This is pretty good wine

Perhaps [champagne] would do for a celebration?

BewitchedBotheredandBewildered Mon 13-Mar-17 22:32:35

Thanks Tigers, wine seems a bit everyday (for me anyway!)

I'd like something a bit more explosive and wild.

Never mind, I'll manage <sob> grin

How about a champagne flute underneath a firework burst?

No? Too much?

BewitchedBotheredandBewildered Tue 14-Mar-17 08:54:34

That would be good!

I don't mind what it is, anyway looks like no-one else is fussed grin

Thanks for posting.

I'm sure I've seen people use champagne on the site before.

🍾🍾🍾

That's people posting from phones though isn't it Smiling?

I only post from laptop.

It's a small thing but I really think the 10 original face emoticons are so out of date and yes something more joyous would be good too.

FruSkogKattOla Tue 14-Mar-17 16:01:51

This is quite a nice one on the 'secret' list torch, albeit probably not too celebratory - in fact it might be mistaken for a spliff grin

Thanks for the suggestions, everyone. We'll pass them on. In the meantime, here's some gin

I do cheerleaders

But you have to add an extra space in the pom-poms otherwise it bolds

MongerTruffle Tue 14-Mar-17 18:04:58

I've never seen bear, [footbal], halo and gin.

MongerTruffle Tue 14-Mar-17 18:05:15

football not [footbal]

Can I just say I think fireworks/party poppers would be good rather than alcohol based ones as I'm thinking it would be nice to have more non alcohol ones generally for the mners that are giving up drink due to addiction/health issues.

Of course both champagne and fireworks/party poppers would be even better so there's a choice.

Off topic but I'd LOVE an eyeroll one.

Graphista Tue 14-Mar-17 18:14:58

How do you do the secret ones?

Ooh replies, thanks flowers

I agree, a non alchohol related celebration would be good.

So fireworks or an explosion of confetti or glitter.

Thanks LouMN

I think you have to have been around when they first cropped up Graphista

I think if you type the obvious they work -

crown

tardis

torch

[bicycle]

tennis

shamrock

BewitchedBotheredandBewildered Tue 14-Mar-17 22:38:46
