    I haven't checked out all the new emoticons. What's that one supposed to signify? Primal scream??

    When you point at it, it says "disgust." It looks more like ready to hurl to me, which, I guess, goes well with disgust.

    I use emoticons a lot, but some of the new ones, I don't think I will be using them much.
    Those are really not quite adding to what I have to say, but detracting from it and, honestly some are right down ugly and puzzling.
    A few no one really can tell what they mean, like this one .
    That one looks like a bird that swallowed the wrong worm.

    Back in the Erin as moderator days she swore we'd never get a hurling emoticon, and people complained they wanted one. Now we have one, and people find it horrifying. I'm so glad I'm not a forum moderator.

    I am an occasional visitor to another board that has an epic amount of smilies. Users can even create them. They're all here:

    It does make it quite fun. The posters do not over use them (usually!)

    OK, I give up. I can't find the new or even the old emoticons. I printed out the oldones yrs ago and keep them on top of my monitor for easy reference. Would someone please tell me where to find the new and old ones.

    I miss the "eek" guy's eyes popping out! This new one just isn't quite the same.

    He's hurling? It looks like he has a mustache, to me.

    Quite fitting for Movember.

    In the "reply" box you need to hit "Go Advanced" and then all the regular emoticons show up again. (It took me a week to figure this out.)

    Why does the guy have a mustache? What does that mean? I'm a little slow. Is he supposed to be a Mexican emoticon?

    Default Less terrifying in the light of day

    Maybe it's like one of those optical illusion portraits. The first time I saw it, it was giving me the benign and folksy in a 70's variety show kind of way -look. And then suddenly it switched on me and I shrieked "Exorcistcomputerhead!"

    But that's in no way meant to imply that I don't appreciate the mods immensely or that I won't use this emoti. Creepy hollow eyes and all.

    As in:
    So my neighbor comes up to me and says," Hey HillnDale, you like horses. I'm thinking about getting one to put out back, you know, like Mr Ed, and I'm considering this inbred Gypsy Vanner. Whaddya think?!"


    Or:
    Those vaquero riders sure are impressive. Maybe I could have been agarrochista if things had gone a little differently.

    Or:
    People who rolkur their horses are total oinking 's

    And lastly:
    I really should eat more salad!!!

    Some of these are great! While we probably don't need a edo: emoti, the headbang and the guy putting on his glasses like he's about to seriously pontificate would prove useful.

    Some are seriously not for this board, being x-rated. The Canada flag is cute, the hurling one is long overdue :barf: - and I don't understand a whole lot of them. Oh well, learn something every day, they say.
