Well I’m not sure what happened to the old website but over time the performance got worse and worse, it was harder and harder to edit and a couple of times it seems it was even under some kind of attack. Plus I never really liked the last site design. Therefore I decided to rebuild the site, make it much better and move it to a much better web host.
Well you guys had me a little bit worried there for a bit. I didn’t receive any entries for this contest all month until right before Christmas. I almost thought no one was going to enter but in the end we got a good amount of entries at pretty much the last minute so it’s all good. Thank you everyone for entering and a big congratulations to Carolyn. Your two Christmas kaomoji cookies have won you a Kaoiro kaomoji emoticons stamp! I’ll be sending you an email soon to coordinate getting you your prize. Here are Carolyn’s winning cookies: We also received a lot of other awesome cookies: Tyler’s very Japanese and delicious looking cookie: Brittany send in several different cookies: Christina made a whole plate of kaomoji cookies: And finally here are the Japanese emoticon cookies Alison made: Thanks everyone for participating and have a happy 2015 everyone! ﾟ*｡☆ヾ(´∀｀)Д Ндррч Йёш Чёдя！(´∀｀)ノ☆｡*ﾟ Featured image credit
I’m pleased to announce that I just finished another big update and the number of emoticons on this site is now more than 10,000! The actual number is currently 10,054! From now on I’m probably just going to slowly add emoticons to the site and not really do any giant updates with thousands of emoticons at once. Thanks everyone for all your support and as always, feel free to suggest more emoticons for me and I’ll get them added to the site as soon as I can. Image Credit

I just finished another big update and the number of emoticons on this site is now over 9,000! 9,130 to be exact. That’s all I really have to say. I added emoticons to pretty much every category on the site and I’m working on one more big update after which I should hopefully have some news about the app update so stay tuned! Image Credit
