Where is the :lolflag: emoticon?


On Ubuntu Forums, there is a :lolflag: emoticon that depicts a smilie holding up a sign saying "LOL!". How come it doesn't exist on LQ, seeing as though LQ uses the same BB software?

Here's something similar to what the emoticon looks like:

Although, this is similar, not the same.

Okay, I posted this because I was wondering why the :lolflag: emoticon wasn't available on LQ despite the fact that it is available on other forums that use vBullETin, not as a brainstorm post.

This link goes to the emoticon list in use on the vBulletin forums. I would assume that they stay with the default smiley set. However, the available smilies can be expanded if the administrator wishes to do so.

The set in use here is a mix of default smilies and a couple of others, many have been in use since the very early days of LQ. So that emoticon isn't used because Jeremy hasn't added it - whether because he isn't aware of it or doesn't want to use it here.

Seriously, those 'moving' smilies are really irritating! They divert attention,
we have TWO and they're more than enough IMHO.
