    No, I'm pretty sure that's different from the eye rolling one the OP's talking about.

    Yes, it is different. The eyes rolled up in the head and then it kind of blinked. The new one is dumb.

    The uhoh one was there on the old board too. It was always called uhoh.

    Me too! ARGH! (as Charlie Brown would say, in this situation...)

    And The new one is in *no* way adequate to portray the emotions behind eye rolling.

    Yeah, I kind of loved the animated action of the old rolleyes icon. Although I suspect the mods got rid of it because let's face it, a rolley-eye icon is usually found in a a pretty condescending, snarky response post. The animation just reinforced the negativity.

    I find the "disgust" one underwhelming too , but maybe it's because I'm on another forum where the animated disgust icon actually turns its head and vomits
