Just thought I'd put this out there as it's one of those things that slows me down when I'm replying to or writing a post on Blab... but the Smiley "button" that you click on to select the emoticon you want (when you can't remember if it's :"wehaveawinner" or :"haveawinner"!) has some .. outdated (?) emoticons that I know personally I never ever use. So then I've got to go to the "More" button which opens up another browser window, and scroll through everything to find what I need!

The Hamsterdam and Spam take up the most room and if taken out of the quick-click menu, would leave so much more space for the more popular and commonly used emoticons/images. Am I making any sense? Just wondering if this affects anyone else, and if it's something that could be considered by management going forwards :) Thanks for reading!

....Are you saying you are annoyed by Spam??

I know what you mean though, sometimes I'm just :diggin
However, I do think that there are some that don't get used enough. I don't think I'm ever going to find a proper use for Hamsterdam...
or this ----> :outhouse

I only remember the keyboard strokes for a few of them, and otherwise I'm too lazy to go hunting, so I'm emoji-impaired. Sometimes people think I'm being serious when I'm not, or that I'm kidding when I'm dead serious. I've considered just making a list of the ones I like and putting it next to my keyboard, but so far I haven't done it. I try to use my words, har! (or say "har!" in an annoying way)

I was just noticing recently that no one uses Hamsterdam anymore. I don't think most new folks know what she's for.

That's a pretty good idea. I try and remember the ones I use the most and keep trying to expand that. But when I don't rmember I go scrolling through. I see ones I've forgotten about and am like "I should remember that to use it" cause there are so many. Then I don't remember and just keep using the same ones :D

On a computer you can hover the mouse pointer over an emoji in someone else's post and it will tell you the keystrokes. That doesn't work on my phone, though. :grump. I'm not really grumpy, I just couldn't think of another emoji I know. :toothy

Ooh hovering with my finger on my tablet shows me the keystrokes. Nice to know! Thanks!
And I will admit that I have no clue what hamsterdam means xD I never thought to ask though. :lol
I'm editing my post to add that I understand what the Original Poster means about the smiley tab on this page. I've never used the spam or hamsterdam icons myself. I primarily use hugs, laughing ones, and I'm always looking for ones that show my impatience over waiting for a package or frustration that something did not go as planned. I used to look for the welcome icons to say hi to new folks and birthday icons to post on the birthday threads, but I have a hard time finding them when I click the More tab and look through the long list of icons.

I try to memorize the keystrokes of the ones I use the most, but if I can't remember the code, I just go to "More" then hold CRTL+F. You can then search for the one you want, or the section that you want. Makes it a lot easier to find things :)
