Thank you, Josie, for suggesting this great one what_the_heck  - now added.

As we cannot add too many more to our bulging emoticon bank, let's just add one or two every quarter in 2011. And maybe drop some less popular ones to make way.

To start - any suggestions for the least popular ones, or those that you think are hardly ever (if ever) used? I would like to drop maybe five or six if all are agreeable.

Never knowingly underfed

Hmmm, lets see.....

Don't see these being used much- smilefrownwinksmuglaughkisschef.

The static ones don't seem to be very popular, the ones that don't really do anything.

How about a cold smiley?

If you can't be a shining example, be a terrible warning!

Well, this one cry and this one frown are similar, we could probably do away with one of them.  This one angry and this one steam are similar also, but I like this one steam better. There's SIX drinking ones Mr. Irishman, pint sloe_gin wine champagne cheers medicinemebbe we could do away with one or two? (I've not seen this one pint used since I joined.)

I use the smiley face, laugh and the confused face! And I like the peace dove and the dog and cat.

My list to go:
angry  yell heartbreak heart champagne pint chef

Never assume anything - except an occasional air of intelligence.

Oh I like the star star  and the champagne champagne   is a good one for celebrating all sorts of things.
