Hello, I have a suggestion

I've recently become very aware of an aspect of our wonderful forums that is very much lacking.

Many users lack the ability to express themselves coherently in a brief, concise, and picture-friendly manner. Especially in sub-forums such as The Pit, the ability to express a concept in a manner that requires as little literacy and intelligence as possible is an invaluable option for many of our fine users to have a more enjoyable and stress free experience browsing and contributing to a wide array of threads.

Specifically, I've noticed a desire for the implementation of a :pimp: emote with either a cool character having a smoke with some rad clothing on or a "blinged out" cup with glittery pimp writing on it. That's just one example of lacking concepts that come up quite recently in which a picturized manifestation of this idea would smooth over communication and prevent disputes and hostility.

Thank you very much for your time and have a wonderful day,
Thrashtastic15.

And to all my awesome Russian members of the UG staff, good luck on the ice out there in Ufa and keep on keeping on embracing your inner :pimp:

PS, the community has singled out two emotes they would very much appreciate becoming postable options through the site.



or



Have a wonderful day. The tabs rule by the way.

We could definitely use some more emoticons. I have tons of times where I want to post one, but none of them that currently exist quite suit what I wish to express.

So much yes. I was actually going to create a more serious thread here requesting that a while ago, because an emoticon showing a general but unentheusiastic agreeance with a post, or a nonchalant expression of approval, could be rather useful.
It would require a red cap, of course.
