HQ Could we please have an eye-rolling emoji? Bathsheba mentioned it on another thread and I agree that it would be a good one to have. Please! ๐Ÿ˜Š

๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„ whatโ€™s wrong with the one you used?

Doesnโ€™t hmm do that too?

I told my son to stop using the eye-rolling emoji in reply to me, so now I get this from him: ๐Ÿ‘+๐Ÿ”

I can't see the emojis squiffy or you used.
Yes, hmm does it for me Maw

Nina Iโ€™m using an iPad. They are just there as an option. So much easier than the GN ones.

That really made me laugh Grannyknot - I have a son who would do something exactly like that! grin

That is much clearer to me grannyknot often I can't tell what an emoji is supposed to be conveying as they are too tiny.

If you have a touch screen just enlarge the emoji Moscow so you donโ€™t get the wrong message I quite like this one, no one can get that wrong ๐Ÿคฌ

Pamela I'm useing the mobile site for GN, the emojis are very simple to use, just two clicks.
I'm using an android phone, a lot of the ones used from other devices just show a blank rectangle to me, as does BlueBelle's

Testing, can everyone see these ?

Pamela The one I used is on my phone, it's not on the GN emojis.

To answer you Maw and Nina, I think the eye rolling is more lighthearted than the hmm IMHO! It's more along the lines of the one day that you don't take your umbrella with you is the day that it rains - hmm doesn't quite cut it for me, whereas an eye roll would!

The hmm emoji means โ€˜hmmโ€™ which is much the same as an eye roll anyway.

DanniRae smile

Anyways, I think eye-roll is different to hmm. An eyeroll is rejection:

An article in Slate suggested that eye-rolling isnโ€™t just an affectation. Founding human ethologist Irenaus Eibl-Eibesfeldt noted in his 1989 book Human Ethology that many cultures have โ€œsimilar gestures for rejecting, all involving looking away.โ€

Yes Nina.

PamelaJ1 Thu 12-Jul-18 19:46:31

I always use the ones on my iPad but if they canโ€™t be seen, as Nina said, then Iโ€™ll stop. So can anyone see these?๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ

Yes if you are on a smart phone or tablet then it's easy to add your own. Otherwise...well we are limited to certain ones at the moment but should we have the opportunity to extend our repertoire we will note that request!

Squiffy Thu 12-Jul-18 20:45:50

Thank you Cari! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Š

ninathenana Thu 12-Jul-18 23:37:27
