Forum Emojis

Post by Justintime » Tue 30 Apr, 2019 10:13 pm

Can we have some new Emojis on the forum please?
I've been tempted to use the builder mooning on numerous occasions but ultimately felt it broke rule one...
Perhaps we could have some new, more inclusive Emojis?
Gender neutral/politically aware etc...
I'm not sure these fit into the "Be Nice" rule.. :finger: :foobar: :mooning:

I think that the current selection are probably just the standard ones that are included in the forum software package. As far as I can make out, this forum and various others are probably all hosted on the same server and all use the same generic software package / template.

As far as knowing whether such icons can be used from elsewhere, I have no idea.

Just one thing to bear in mind when linking to external images, though.
If you use https rather than http in your image URL, it keeps the forum's web page secure.
