    What I would like is a smilie that conveys agreement with part of a post but disagreement with other parts. We don't really have a rep smilie for that and most posts that I've read have some parts I agree with and others I disagree with.

    Perhaps use the "yin/yang" symbol.

    Teh Baba can never be removed, because doing so would invalidate the entire rep system.

    Also, there should be a dick rep for when someone is being a dick, or if they're just a bit cocky.

    I'd be surprised if you prudes actually made a "dick" rep with a penis icon, so I'll settle for a "cocky" rep with a rooster icon.

    So, does "angry" mean you're angry at the poster making the post or at the information they've relayed?

    Please don't get rid of tldr. If not for validating my existence think about how it would stop @Ten Lubak from saying I love you after every one of my posts. Without tldr I am nothing.

    I'm still of the opinion we need a GFY icon distinct from :finger:, which has a more cheeky connotation than the occasional DIAF connotation needed.

    Eh, I get why you'd want one, but there is a theme to the rep smilies, in that they are all taken with a pinch of salt. Even "dumb" looks like a goofy shit, which makes them all tongue-in-cheek. I'd rather save the full on "go fuck yourself" for actual posts.

    Still, it's not my decision, just offering some reasoning behind why they are the way they are.

    I second this. I already use the GFY rep only when I want the full FU meaning, but the icon softens that a bit. And what is Wordforge if not a place for deescalation!

    Not really in favor of adding yet another rep emoji but I wouldn’t mind adding something like this to the smilie selection here:

    Agreed to the smilies, and if another were added to rep, that'd be perfect for what I want :techman:

    Since we have a "Thank you" rep, we should also have a "You're welcome" rep. A silver coin, perhaps?

    If you guys want something like that, it can be implemented.

    Of course, if I were going to add a new rep smiley, it would be this:

    And it would mean "No, because you wish it."
