Barf smiley issue.
Posted 16 March 2013 - 06:38 PM
I have a concern with this smiley. It defeats the purpose. I always believed a picture is worth a thousand words. A smiley is no different. Im not saying we need to remove the barf smiley. It throws up followed by a smile. Usually when using that smiley, I am relating to an experiance I had in my CSA. The barf is appropriate way to express feelings but the smiling in the end needs to go. I usually have to post something like this.....
"This sex experiace made me wana :)barf/> (Without the happy face)"
Im not gona be happy about my CSA. This barf smiley should barf followed by a sad face. I made this a public request so other members can see it and see if they agree with me.

If a person wishes to source a small and most importantly, tasteful, emoticon that illustrates this emotion - and one which fits in with our current style of emoticons, they are very welcome to and can contact us. It's also important that the emoticons are sourced from a free use site. From time to time we can look around for emoticons, but often there are more pressing things that come first, so it can take a little while!

Anyway, if it'll be helpful let me know. I agree the current one seems pretty inappropriate at times.
