I would like to enter a plea to the Powers That Be at GN for more emotionic emoticos those funny faces etc. I feel that as a G&T drinker I am being discriminated against by having to use the wine one, and there is insufficient to express my feelings. Perhaps a "yuk" or a "hear hear/like" and especially a sign off one meaning "I have to leave the thread but I'll be back"

Do other GNetters agree and if I what would you like to see?

Well, I don't drink red wine these days, only white. And my drink of choice is a scotch and soda. Although, to be honest, the recent depletion of funds means that myself and Mr. P are more likely to be found drinking Lidls cider from a wine glass !

I think that the wine thing does fine, no matter what the drink.If we need more symbols, I don't think that ones showing different types of alcoholic drinks are exactly a priority.

PS Perhaps we should have an emoticon for ^ that?

phoenix perhaps a picture of a little duck? grin

I agree, phoenix - and GNHQ are notoriously stingy with their emoticons. Just look how long we've had to wait for jeni's 'crescent moon'.....confused

Still want the 'good luck' emoticon - horseshoe perhaps or fingers crossed, though as someone pointed out that could be mistaken for the National Lottery.

A four-leafed clove perhaps?

Nanadogsbody Sat 25-Aug-12 20:28:57

Or even clover.

An emoticon for crying - as in frustration, disbelief etc., not sadness.

AlisonMA Sun 26-Aug-12 10:32:43

I like the duck idea and one for frustration, also good luck but not sure I like any of the symbols that would need. How about one that says 'I agree with you'? Perhaps a simple tick?

What's wrong with flippin' typing?!

Nanadogsbody Sun 26-Aug-12 11:34:43

Never heard that "a picture is worth a thousand word"? JO . Who first said that?

I'm still here, waiting!

Nanadogsbody Sun 26-Aug-12 12:45:40

Waiting for your crescent moon?

Nanadogsbody Wed 29-Aug-12 16:55:06

Where did the torch come from? Has it always been there and I just didn't notice it?

JO4 Wed 29-Aug-12 16:58:35

There have been threads! hmm

Thought it hadn't posted the first time! Plus was distracted by a discussion on another thread.
