Can be applied to something you have done or said yourself, a slightly different effect to the embarrassed smiley, some behaviour you have witnessed or to something posted by another :twisted:

OK but I'd see the first of those as more 'despair' and the 2nd Star Trek as thoughtful - if the head shook (no) then changes to Oh dear ...
But if you chaps like it then I am sure we can use it .....:)

:lol:

Actually, how did they do that? I just posted and it said no more than 8 smilies because I tried to include the whole reply from Toltec along with mine but I’m sure I once saw about 50 in one of their posts, most of them popcorn :D

They can't see this I hope :dighole:

I set a limit :) I can reset it if it seems to be frustrating people - thought it maybe wise ...
I actually have lost the really good heli smilie that I had (originally a forum user here sent it to me - I must find it !) :)

Isn't "meetong" how a Brummie describes his tongue :D

Just kidding. Ya gotta av a laff eh :bunker:

How about motorbike and cycle ones? Actually there is one I saw somewhere I like which is 'smug'. It's looks.. well.. smug.

It's like a smile but the mouth is higher and wider and deeper. Quite funny and useful I think.

Where did I see it?... :scratchchin:

In case anyone's wondering, I've moved some of the recently added smilies to the second page as it's a bit offputting to have big animated ones on the default set on the posting page. I can see :tumbleweed: and :headbash: getting plenty of use here :lol:

The smiley limit is currently set to 8 per post, btw, which seems reasonable to me. We didn't have one before, which is why some posts had a lot more.

Well they are bash your head against a brick wall, book ends ! :)
Seriously I see the red headed chap as an angry bash your head ...
and the 'normal' chap bash your head as an annoyed / frustrated bash your head against brick wall .... so less 'severe'. :)

If you hate the fact there are two - which I can understand some may - I would plumb for the yellow headed one - But some previous posts may then no longer have their smilie ....
