Dear Pandys. I know this is not really a big deal, but a few of us have been wishing for a couple new emoticons, as these are thoughts we like to pass out so much. We've been typing them as we would some of the others, like so:

:blanket: :cuppa:

Any chance you could get them filled in for us? If it involves buying an image, I would pay. I think you have a thingy for direct donations? Here are nice images I've found:

Got this from photobucket. There's a nice animated version, too, although I don't know that's necessary if it's too heavy in resources.

Anyway, I thought I'd ask.

those are cool, but I think we might have met the qouta for emoticons. I hope not, but it doesn't hurt to ask.

Hi Sheepy,

Thanks for bringing this up with us. We added new emoticons not long ago but will discuss these new ones as soon as we can. There is no charge. You're sweet to offer though! :) Animated emoticons and avatars are not allowed as they tend to slow the board down. They can also be disturbing to some members. You can check back here for an answer in a few days.

Take care,
Susan

Silly me! I was looking for a different kind and didn't see it right before my eyes!

Thanks

Thanks Kate, those are awesome!

Just curious, can there be different colored balloons added?

Not trying to be a pain or too picky, just thought I would check.

Hey Angelsun,

What kind of colours are you thinking about? We try not to have too many emoticons that are the same, otherwise it gets a bit cluttered in the emoticon box - but if you let me know what you are thinking I can see if adding another one would be possible or not :)

1249, I'll change the settings today so that some of the newer emoticons show up in the clickable box. It's probably time for a rotation of the emoticons that show up in the quick box! ;)
