The Emoticon that was modified for Christmas still has its Christmas hat. Please revert back to the original.

I have a couple of suggestions for new smilies:

Can we please have a "Green with Envy"?

Also I remember seeing in the past on another Board (no longer active) an animated smilie running up against a brick wall.
I think that would be a useful addition .... and may get a lot of use at the moment.

Finally would it be possible to have the emoticons available for use for Personal Messages as well please.

Thanks. :-)

I agree, Jeremy

..... Christmas hat should be gone!

Many people still believe that all Christmas decorations should be gone by Twelfth Night ............... which was January 6.

If it´s anything like the Rememberance Day poppy it will still be there at Easter.

No longer does have a Christmas hat.

The :-) was nice for the Christmas season here but looks silly now.

This thread is proof that no-one from GR is reading this board! :-)


Island Report 12 Jan 2012 17:58

I think you'll find they might :-)


MargaretM Report 12 Jan 2012 18:09

WOW!!! :-)

Only the advert for cosmetic surgery with falling snow and 'all I want for Christmas' to go now.

Just saying.
It really doesn't bother me.

Errmm....I thought you hated emoticons Margee? :-)
Just saying.


MargaretM Report 12 Jan 2012 18:48

I do, I do and I swore that I would never use one but the devil made me do it!


JerryH Report 12 Jan 2012 20:49

Thankyou Phil

The hat is gone! :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)

What chances are there on the other suggestions?


Kense Report 12 Jan 2012 21:06

For a moment I thought you had jumped the gun Jeremy, because there were five hatted Santas in your post. F5 magically removed the hats though.


MargaretM Report 12 Jan 2012 21:20

They were removed just minutes, maybe seconds before my post at 18:09, That's why i said Wow.


Joy Report 12 Jan 2012 21:24


Still a santa hat :-S
This reminds me of when I saw a screen shot of the site - two computers, same room, but one had Christmas stars, the other did not.


MargaretM Report 12 Jan 2012 21:37

Joy, I don't see the Santa hat, why do you? Is this site driving us all cuckoo?


JerryH Report 12 Jan 2012 21:44


Maybe you need to press F5 - or possibly Ctrl F5 ? :-S ;-)


SylviaInCanada Report 12 Jan 2012 22:03

I can still see Santa's hat :-S :-S :-S :-S :-S :-S :-S :-S :-S
