    I'm not seeing Gonzo's little bow tie, am I crazy or is there something I'm just missing? I can see all the new ones.

    Jamie is the awesomest of the awesome! Thanks for the new smilies, Jamie and Phil!

    :search: If you refresh the page a few times the new bowtied Gonzo will probably replace the other one. I felt he needed a good sprucing up. Gonzo deserves the best...little blue guy. :concern:

    Ed, that's strange. I'm sure I saw you using them before. In fact, I thought it was you who tried to teach me to use them when I was unable to. Oh well, maybe it was someone else.
    Anyway, for most of them, the thing to do is go to a fresh line, type a colon, the word denoting the emotion, followed by another colon. Example,
    :flirt:. This isn't always the case though. The best way to learn is to click the link that says "smileys" under each thread. There's a handy little chart there that tells you what emotions each smiley represents, and how to type them.
    This being said, you may be able to write them, but not read them... My older version of Jaws, which was vary old indeed, read them, but this new one unfortunately does not. All that work Phill and Jamie did, and I can barely enjoy it...
    :cry: Well, as I said before, I can write them, and that should at least bring enjoyment to other people.
    :) Sorry for the slight ramble; hope this helps Ed.

    Mmm... Must've been someone else Kate. But thanks, will definitely investigate this.

    :super: << TOTALLY my fave! Grover's my TOTAL favorite SS character that hadn't gotten represented as yet!

    :wisdom: << Pretty cute.

    :insatiable: << GOOD! We needed a Cookie smiley for a while!

    Jamie, MAJOR, MAJOR kudos go out to you, buddy! I know of a way to get more smilies on here, and go over to Golden Age Cartoons for that.

    Also, love the other ones too!

    Love the new faces!

    And I have personally used the word "wembling" in a sentence, not realizing other people would have no idea what I was talking about, lol. :coy:

    Ach! I guess that's what I get for not posting in a while. The smilies section has exploded with new characters! Woo hoo!
    Love them all! And I'm SO glad to see Big Bird on here. As iconic as Kermit is for the Muppets in general and obviously necessary to be here- I consider Big Bird to be iconic for the Sesame Street Muppets and I'm glad to see him on here. And what's this? Egad! Sherlock Hemlock, the world's greatest detective! WOW! And never fear for lack of smilies, it is I, Sup........er Grover- here to save the day!:super:
    And Cookie Monster too? Me feeling hungry all of a sudden! Me feeling very hungry!:insatiable: (oh- me insatiable apparently-... Me wonder what that mean? Oh well- maybe me go ask Big Bird.)
    And it's great to even see the Doozers from Fraggle Rock represented- and The Dark Crystal! Wow- now, you know if you put that up- we're gonna have to have Ludo or Hoggle or someone from Labyrinth too!
    (well, it'd be super cool if possible- it's probably my favorite Henson fantasy film)
    And I think we ought to give Elmo a spot too- he could be for precocious or cute or something.

    But don't mean to sound greedy- I LOVE the new smilies! Thanks so much for the great work! I'm gonna have to keep posting new posts on here for no apparent reason and use lots and lots of smilies just to get them all on screen for me to drool over.
    :batty: :search: :scary:

    And let's not forget the Doozers.:busy: :coy: :hungry:

    (Maybe we can get Mokey and Boober someday to round out the Fraggle Five. - And of course, one of the Jim Henson Muppet would be pretty awesome too.)

    I love the smilies, I overuse them on every forum I belong to anyway to start with :halo: , but having them be muppets just makes it that much better:excited:

    These are the best smilies I've ever seen on any forum...ever! Really! I think I'm gonna print them out as stickers or something!

    By the way, who is this - :zany: ? Maybe I'm thinking too hard, but I can't seem to figure it out for some reason...

    :zany: is a penguin.

    Hmmm...Grover also seems appropriate for a :hug: smiley (which I'd love to see eventually); he does enjoy hugging other Muppets and kids! On a related note, are there any unused Muppets who'd be the best choice for :awww: or :cute: ?

    I'm very glad these are being received so well. The side panel is closed for smilies, but I'm workin' on a few things icon-wise. There's always going to be somebody left out. I did have a Boober ready to go and a Johnny Fiama but they were just redundant and I didn't feel like scrapping any that we already have. There's also room to consider. It's not like Sophie's Choice, but feels that way. :o

    Yes, I would have liked to include Mokey and others. If that did happen and received staff approval (hint) they would not go with the smilies on the right. ;)
