    Default Change the green thumb into an orange carrot?

    Would having an orange carrot icon in place of the green thumb have more appeal seeing that Coth is primarily a board for horse people?

    What do you think?

    No vote from me.

    I think the IT folks probably have more important things to work on, and I think the whole +thumb thing is worthless without a -thumb.

    Maybe we could have carrot and whip icons?

    Well now, if IT ever runs out of stuff to tweak, THAT would be a stellar fix!

    Can the red thumb come back in the guise of a carrot stick?

    How about a little curb chain for jingles? I like the carrot/whip idea, or maybe carrot and crop.

    I feel guilty for harassing the mods to change it again, but... the carrot idea is super cute.

    Ditto.

    I voted for the carrot also, but just as a funny idea, not so sure it would work if implemented.

    I too am in the group that thinks thumbing is for the birds, but would never want to impose on other's small pleasures and ask it be banned to the waste baskets of cyberspace.

    How about a carrot and a pile of steaming brown poop?
