Jaw dropping smiley?

Post by Dunno » August 31st, 2011, 9:16 pm

From time to time I really regret we don't have a jaw dropping smiley, especially when someone makes a magnificent piece of work and you can't find words to express your astonishment. Shock ( :shock: ) somehow looks shocked in a negative way, in my opinion, and a simple smile is just not enough in those situations. After quick googling I found this , personally I think it's just a bit too large and grotesque but I like the general outline and idea. I've never done anything deserving a jaw-drop but the way I see it, it might be nice to see someone dropping their jaw when they see your new portrait for Wesnoth, for instance. What do you think?
Thanks,
Dunno
Oh, I'm sorry, did I break your concentration?

Nah, too lazy. Besides, smiley-free posts are nicer.

Call me ’ol fashioned, but I like colons and parens far better than obnoxious images.

If this was Facebook I'd like this. Smilies distract the reader from the true point of the message. And the side-bar of the smilies also distract the writer of their message, as well.

powershot: I thought I had made it clear I wasn’t willing to add more smilies.
