I'm over the moon with the new smiley - rolleyes smiley - it's excellent! It's one of those tags I've been using for *years* already, and now it's an actual smiley! Hurrah!

Now all we need is a smiley - shrug and my lexicon will be complete.

Anyone else want it?

Yea.... I think smiley - shrug is probably one of the most needed. Or at least used even though it has no smiley.

and smiley - badger would satisfy a few of us also, but I'm not holding my breath.

Hey, maybe a ?

A few questions...

Why is there a smiley - friedegg? Or a smiley - bluelight? They just seem kinda out of nowhere.

Also, why does smiley - shhh take three aitches to spell it even though it only shows two?

And why are smiley - rolleyes and smiley - shhh not antialiased like all the other smilies? It makes them look very "8-bit" in comparison.

A shrug smiley is definitely needed for all those times when you don't feel like typing, "I don't know," or you otherwise just don't know how to respond!

Give Shrugs A Chance!

smiley - erm pretty much says (to me), "don't know, oh drat".

But a well placed , in context, could say:

"don't know, don't care", ... or ...

"I'm bored, see ya later", ... or ...

"I've pretty much given up on trying to interact intelligently with you, and so rather than cause deep and irreparable emotional harm to you, or really express how I feel"

Oh the uses are nearly limitless.
