back to article El Reg mulls commentard icon portfolio shake-up

The El Reg Central Overseeing Commentard Soviet has been instructed to put out feelers to determine whether you, our beloved readers, fancy some extra comments icons to add to the mighty arsenal available to better express your feelings on topics of international import. It's been 18 months or so since we last had an iconography …

Re: If animated gifs are allowed...Self head slap

I would suggest that an image of Rush Limbaugh banging himself with a microphone be used instead of the image proposed.

Re: Male Chicken Icon

And:

A snout in a trough (for the sort of graft that the UK now does so well)

A bishop's mitre (for all sorts of religious and unscientific beliefs)

A justice statue with scales that don't balance (where there's one law for us, one law for them)

Some police line tape (for "nothing to see here, move along!")

And most importantly, what about the ability to combine up to four icons? So if discussing some spurious technical angle to Margaret Moran's expenses, we could have a snout in a trough, a thumbs down, an imbalanced justice, and some police tape.

"A bishop's mitre (for all sorts of religious and unscientific beliefs)"

Also acts as an alternative to the male chicken - possibly for religious scandals?

That's another one: police tape

Bring back the old ones...!

I would like to have Steve Jobs with a halo back again.

Also, can we have a different icon than the Anonymous mask for anonymous posts. They're not the same thing.

Also, can you put a block on Bob Vistakin using the Linux logo? Some of us Linux users find it embarrasing.

As for icons - ditch the whole thing. It's just irritating and childish.

Another vote here for bringing back the old ones, they were much better.

The angel/devil ones now are awful, the fanboi one makes no sense, troll guy is from 4chan, and we really REALLY need the El Reg gravestone back.

Ooh, ooh! Please sir, can we get our hand grenade back?

I miss the hand grenade icon. It allowed a warmer and more personal response than nuking from orbit.

Also, how about a "Where's the bacon angle?" icon, possibly featuring a perplexed pig.

Finally, perhaps an icon of a toilet obscured by a red ring with a diagonal slash, indicating an objection to toilet humour etc, to be used whenever that Hard Reg chap feels the need to squeeze a peurile and lunch-ruining bodily functions gag into a console review and we need to remind him that El Reg isn't Viz.
