Emoji / emoticons?!

Should the new emojis stay or go?

I know some people don't like them, and the latest version of the forum software now gives the option to remove/hide the new emojis altogether and just keep the DOSBODS originals. There is no middle ground sadly, they can either be active or not. So do you think the NEW emojis should stay, or go? I will keep the original DOSBODS ones.  Please vote!

For clarification:

New emojis:  😐😺👟

Old DOSBODS emojis: ;):Old:B|

I voted for the old ones, not only are the new ones just new fangled pish and teenager-ey, but they fuck up my phone as there are so many of them. I really don't like them. 

Modern rubbish, and we are quite capable of expressing ourselves on here without stupid little faces. The old ones were ok though, and useful sometimes.

:PissedOff:

Also if I type "tree" on my phone it gives me the option: 🎄 , sweet 🍬, cow 🐮, ski 🎿, plane , etc, etc. No need the the new ones.

They're pish anyway.

I reckon.

Agree with @Carl Fimble .They're a bit of a pain to select when using my lowly powered 'not so smart phone' . The original ones are sufficent imo.

Yeah, mine is supposed to be a smart phone but it isn't half thick sometimes, and it struggles with the three trillion new emoticons.

Yes they're messing my phone up, for some reason the developers didn't add a lazyload type feature, so they all load at once and it freezes my smartphone, a Samsung S6 which isn't even that old frankly.

The Masked Tulip

The first version of MS Messenger had a pair of handcuffs and a whip emoji. I can not begin to tell you how depressed I was the day that MS ditched Messenger, which worked, for that rubbish Skype that Balmer paid billions for and then had to justify paying for... so he closed down messenger.... just when Whatsapp was taking off.... What an idiot....

Anyhow, the lack of such emoji's seriously cramped my onlie dating techniques. Back to the crusty rolls.

/end rant

Bad developers! I thought it just my phone being a bit slow, it really doesn't like those new ones though that makes sense if they're all trying to load at once, there are loads of them!

Good they are offering a way to go back to the old ones.

I was happy with the Dosbods emoticons but don’t mind if the new ones are kept or deleted therefore I’ve voted for the third option in the poll.

I've hidden them now, this site seems slower than normal lately and I don't know if the new emojis were the cause.
