    Re: tick and cross icons

    I type the commands longhand for ticks, crosses and "Hi". I use "Go Advanced" for strikethroughs.

    Re: tick and cross icons

    I don't even know what the first and third are supposed to express. The second is self-explanatory but I've never used it.

    Re: tick and cross icons

    I've been eagerly waiting a very long time now for that perfect opportunity to use a rainbow afro. Finally, I think today is the day.

    Re: tick and cross icons

    I use the sniper and the beers clinking occasionally. I don't think I have ever done the rainbow hair.
