Reg readers rage at comment icon outrage

Unwashed masses fire up the Tw*t-O-Tron

Shaken staff at Vulture Central are today locked en masse* in the traditional darkened room sipping sweet tea following the rather adverse reaction to our redesigned comments icons.

While a few people favoured us with thoughtful analysis of the new-look El Reg, most were venting steam from both ears while foaming at the mouth and shaking uncontrollably as they struggled in blind rage to fire up the Twat-O-Tron, having realised that we'd tweaked the aforementioned images.

Well, here's evidence of the caring and tender side of The Register: As of right now, we're reinstating the key comments icons whose removal provoked the terrible wrath of the people. (Note: You may need to refresh the comment submission page to get reacquainted with Paris and your other faves.)

And there's more. For some time, we've been considering knocking together 12 further icons to make up a new row of images, the better for commentards to express their mood. However, we're simply too bone idle to do it ourselves, so are inviting you lot to suggest what might be suitable for inclusion.

Don't bother sending images, just post a comment to this story with your suggestions and we'll create the new pics based on the dozen most popular. Fair enough? Good. ®
