For every person who accepts your referral, you will receive 1,000,000 Slingo Coins AND 1,000 Rank Points!
If you meet all these criteria, you are in the running for the prestigious POTM title!
The Slingo Player of the Month will receive a coin award, Slingo Rank points, have their name up in lights on the Community home page for all to see, and may even win some other goodies for their profile!
One of these new features are the use of emoticons to express yourself in fun new ways!
How to use them:
Some of the emoticons are set to replace commonly known text emotes such as: :) , ;) , and :D . For these you won't need to do anything other type them as you normally would.
There are also a number of extra emoticons built into the chat system to let you express yourself in fun new ways!
The basic format of the extended set of emoticons is a keyword with a colon on either side ( :<keywordhere>: )
For instance, if you want to use the cat emoticon, all you have to type is :cat: and when you press the send button *poof* it will be replaced by a cute little kitty!
Make sure there are no spaces between the colons and the keywords or it will not be replaced!
Here's a list of a few of the emoticons you can use, however some of them are 'hidden', and you'll have to experiment to discover them all! Looking at how the keywords are chosen for each emoticon can serve as a clue to figure out some of the hidden ones.
- Big green grin = :grin:
- Heart = :heart:
- Sleeping = :zzz:
- Whistle = :whistle:
- Clap = :clap:
- Huh? = :huh:
- Rose = :rose:
- Faint = :faint:
- Cry = :cry:
- Mean = :mean:
- Dog = :dog:
- Cat = :cat:
- Thumbs up = :up:
- Thumbs down = :down:
There are also a few emoticons we've built in as a result of common sayings that members JUST LIKE YOU have established to talk to one another.
- Darn Devil = :dd:
- So Sorry = :ss:
- Way to go = :wtg:
- Good Game = :gg:
There are a multitude of emoticons available in the chat right now, but we plan to add even more over time, so keep checking back here for more information about the new and unique ways to talk to your friends on Slingo!!
