Hey everyone, 

 

I have some great news! We've updated the available emoticons on the O2 community! The new emoticons are now live and you can see them under the emoticon option (shown below) when creating a post. wink

We've kept the animated ones as their quite popular but you will now have a much wider selection to express yourself! heart_eyescoolupside_downalienexpressionlesscatthumbsupwave

 

Here's a challange for you! See if you can tell a story ONLY using emoticons in the comments below! grinyahoosee_no_eviltongue_winking

thumbsup the new emoticons.

 

I  heart tv and clapper as they say quite a bit about me. I also thumbsup frog but that's because I thumbsup frogfrog.

 

Best I can do but agree with @Cleoriff  it's tiresome having to keep opening the box


Also @Glory1 I couldn't understand hardly any of your post until I replied (quoting your message) then the names of the emoticons were revealed I got heart (Love) and guessed tvwas TV....but no idea that clapper was clapper!! I got the thumbs up part and could see the frog frog but couldn't understand it.

So ...more work definitely needs doing on these emoticons. As @Beenherebefore said, you can't see what they are when you hover your mouse over them...which sadly renders them pointless. You could have been talking in Swahili for all I knew joyjoykissing_heart No offence intended either wink

No offence taken @Cleoriff 😁

What I was attempting to say was I love the TV and clapperboard emoticons because as I like TV and films it say a lot about me. And I also like the frog emoticon simply because I like frogs 🤣

I did read @Beenherebefore's comment about not being able to see what the emoticon is when hovering your mouse over them. But, of course, as I use a mobile it's totally different for me. I can't 'hover' over the emoticon but get its description when I click on it.

Anyway, let's see what Martin makes of it on Monday. He'll probably be as confused as you which should tell him something about the new emoticons 😉

I appreciate the bigger size but for me I hate how they aren't defined. Far too blurred for my eyes. They have been enlarged but the resolution is all wrong @Anonymous-O2 frowning2

Ok then so with my Miss Marple head on Happy Dance....

You use mobile to post and use emoticons....I mainly use PC. Can you, via mobile, see a description of the new emoticons before you use them?

Point being that the OLD emoticons do show a description when I mouseover...the new ones don't poop

So therefore I could insult you (or anyone else) by posting robot or skull or grimacing as there is no description UNTIL I post it....(Hells teeth I am confusing myself now triumphHelp)

No I don't see a description when I click on the emoticon but it's as @jonsie says I see the description when it's added to the post. 

 

To be fair I only used the emoticons I was sure of. Of course I didn't stop to think that no one else would have a clue what I was talking about Thoughful
