lrrFRUMP
Matt Wiggins looking acutely unhappy. Drawn by Mike Lunsford of Supernormal step and Desert Bus poster fame. Used by fans to express disappointment.
lrrSCOOP
A simple transfer scoop. Used by fans to imply that defeat is inevitable, in reference to the gaming term meaning "forfeit".
lrrCREEPY
An extreme close-up of the creepy doll, a running-joke character created by Kathleen. Used for various purposes, but most often for surprising/disturbing imagery.
lrrAWW
A disappointed muffin, with art derived from a preorder shirt that has since returned to the store. "Aww, muffin" was a catchphrase in commodoreHUSTLE that indicated sarcastic empathy, but LRL commenters often use it for genuine sadness. LRRBot displays the sad muffin when incrementing the death count.
lrrSPOT
A doofy looking dog. This puppy prop has cameoed in dozens (if not hundreds) of LoadingReadyRun videos, so the game "spot the dog" became his name. When fans spot a new subscriber, they greet them with Spot.
lrrEFF
A cartoon Kathleen on the verge of cursing, drawn by fan Havtorn Epsilon. Based on Kathleen's frequent cursing and frustration during difficult games like Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne, fans share in the streamers' frustration with this emote. LRRBot posts EFF when adding to the Tilt count.
lrrAWESOME
The inverse of the Aww Muffin emote is the similarly named Awesome Muffin, also with art from a LRR shirt. The emote, of course, expresses joy.
lrrGOAT
A happy goat drawn by Featherweight. When Alex played Goat Simulator, the recurring phrase "got there!" became "goat there!". So, this emote celebrates the completion of a challenge.
lrrSPOOP
A bug eyed ghost with chubby cheeks. Spoopipher the ghost is the mascot of Let's Nope, and is immortalized in the "Maximum Spoop" shirt.

This was so good, I added !explain commands to LRRBot with these descriptions, though with typo corrections and added that featherweight_ drew the lrrGOAT emote.

I think the Checkpoint logo could be good, but I know LRR wants the emoticons to be more widely applicable. To that end, it could be an icon for unnecessary achievements (a la the "Checkpoints" joke). Though maybe that's too similar to "Goat there" anyways.

Perhaps an Adam face of some sort could become lrrGREED . Widely applicable, too.

One or the other would work well, maybe not both though.

Yeah, Alex's logo would do well for that.

Well...I feel 'lrrFRUMP' and 'lrrEFF' kinda fill that role already. :?

There's only so many slots available for custom emotes.

Well, Graham was complaining last night about how they have too many empty slots, so, suggestions for filling them up is not too unreasonable. :)

I think FRUMP is for general unhappiness, while EFF is for a targeted rage at a specific character screwing you over. I think a FUDGEMS emote would be for a time when it's a whole situation, not just a specific character, is making you rage.

Oh! I missed that; we must be giving them LOTS of subs/followers/etc, yeah - so I'm game for lrrFUDGEMS (as you say 'systemic tilt' ;) ), and something for lrrCLENCH...

I'm still game for lrrBAWK for the truly random or surprising shit. We have positive and negative emotions represented, but nothing that truly encapsulates the sensation of "WAT!"
It's all over but the crying. And the taxes.

We should also have lrrBUS or lrrSPLAT or something to commemorate the great game...

Just thought of this: lrrSMASHCUT for a bleached white skeleton! (Or skull... That works, too.)

It's important that any emotes can be applicable to most streams. With that in mind maybe something for panicking. For when a game situation make the players panic. So maybe the emote can be like an alex panic face, like that seen in the Stolen Jokes Comic,

Another Idea is a specific death emote, Like a skull but make it in such a way that it's reminiscent of the stream. The only Idea I have for that is to call on Featherweight again with some of his art like here,
