Should emojis be used on our forum?

  1. Yes, the more the better, we're all young at heart.

    As we await in frustration the signing of a 20 goal striker/quality winger etc and the big season kick off, the only other really serious topic for discussion is the use of emojis on this forum.

    Five Live had a chat show last week sayin people over the age of 30 shouldn't use them as they try to make you appear young and trendy, but you ain't :( so it makes you look ridiculous.
    (see wot I did there :D )

    Our players use them on social media, with (the annoying) 'crying with laughter' and 'fist in your face' being very popular.
    On this forum we used to have Vic Road jumping scoreboard men, dancing bananas and my favourite, the rolling tumbleweed.

    All we have now is:
    :);) :( :mad: :confused: :cool: :p :D :eek: :oops: :rolleyes: o_O

    So the question is:
    Should emojis be used on this forum?
    What do you think?

    And a supplementary for the mods is:
    Can we have our jumping scoreboard men back please? #sadface.

    Haha, I know Meister, I deliberately posted in The Hornets Nest so the title is hopefully still there when you moved it. :p
    More exposure as many people don't often visit other sections. ;) :D

    If we get rid, then TVOR would be left naked.

    What is an emoji ?? It is not in my Collins English Dictionary, although I admit it is not the latest one.
    It is from when I first went to School (1956)

    They had school back then?

    Of course they had skool back then, when pupils used a personal slate and chalk, and if you asked for more at dinner you got 6 of the best with a whippy cane by a nasty teacher wearing a mortar board and black gown.

    It was hell, but my God there was discipline, and none of this modern PC nonsense. Back then teachers could clip an errant boy round the ear or make him stand in the corner with a 'D' pointy hat - or so I'm told o_O

    I posted something in the Tom Cleverley thread in the Team Bus section just now, and noticed that the little Cleverley 'emoji' is no longer available (presumably along with all the others). Are these things that can be reinstated?
