No emoticon for what I'm feeling...


I was thinking that there should be two more emoticons added to LQ. A really frustrated emoticon, (head banging against a wall) , and a laughing emoticon. Sometimes the mad doesn't quite cut it for showing frustration, and smiling or grinning icon isn't enough, either, for laughing real hard.

I agree.
Even more than two would be nice. There should be a lot of variety, and a range of intensity and emotion.

I too like that one and there are surely a lot of occasions for its use.

@colucix: THAT is EXACTLY what I was talking about! I know there is a better 'laughing' one out there though. I sure hope Jeremy will add at least the frustrated one that was posted though.

a) Technically we're talking smilies (images) here not emoticons (text).

b) I agree we need more.

c) The one I want is tongue-in-cheek. I have never seen a smiley for this; but I have seen at least 3 emoticons, & IMO the best of them is: :-J

:-)

My favourites are at http://joel-nosal.com/blog/?p=220 though it must be said that a number of them are definitely not work safe, so browse them somewhere else.

I'd be happy to add more smilies where appropriate. colucix, can you verify the source of the one you posted, to ensure we're able to use it here at LQ?

I'm adding some new smilies now, based on the link provided by XavierP. This includes the smilie referenced earlier.
