How does everyone feel about having a companion symbol to the sunshine emoticon - a lovely snowflake for chilly, brrrrrr days, snowy days, frosty days, cold, cold days, icy days and just very pretty glistening white days........

sunshine got a great response (72 votes), so if you like the idea of a snowflake to grace and enhance your comments, vote now....... and then perhaps tech might, just might feel able to provide one.

......and snowflakes are very pretty!

Yes please, me too

Have you thought this through Buttercup?

What colour would your snowflake emoticon be?

And what is the background colour on Gransnet?


Butternut Fri 27-Jan-12 22:04:02

Blue/black outline - grin - it will work

glassortwo Fri 27-Jan-12 22:04:59

The snowflake could have a black or a dark purple outline, like the kids make for Christmas decorations. what tech is very clever and will have something up his sleeve grin

whatisamashedupphrase Fri 27-Jan-12 22:05:07

OMG! She wants a multi-coloured one now!!!! shock

Poor Techs.

whatisamashedupphrase Fri 27-Jan-12 22:05:48

want, want, want.... hmm

Butternut Fri 27-Jan-12 22:07:17

Well - why not jin.... (oops) - cover blown

Butternut Fri 27-Jan-12 22:08:29

I think I've cooked my goose.

I am now very, very cold and really would like to have a beautiful snowflake emoticon to cheer me.

Just to let you all know, I shall be marching for a snowflake emoticon this evening - along with all child-like pleasures and children everywhere!

whatisamashedupphrase Fri 03-Feb-12 16:59:14

He he he!!! grin

whatisamashedupphrase Fri 03-Feb-12 17:00:27

They'll ^have* to give you one now - even if it does look like an advert for Iceland! (shop not country)

Butternut Fri 03-Feb-12 17:26:34

I really hope so, whatsup.

It can't be that difficult to do I am sure. grin
