Old topic!
The last post in this thread is over 60 days old. Posting in this thread will be considered a bump, so please make an attempt to be courteous if you go ahead with it.

If the last post is over 6 months old, it may instead be a better idea to start a new topic. If you aren't sure about what to do, feel free to ask a staff member for help, or try to locate a 'general questions'-type thread if it exists in this (sub-)forum.

I believe that having Emoji support would make the forums """better""". Because when ever I put a emoji (Smiley, B Button, Another B Button) it just vanishes. This might also happen with some Unicode characters but I haven't tested it that much.

Emotes already exist. :critter:
But they're not all 8 billion unicode characters. How am I going to paste Ancient Sumerian Characters or Mahjong Tiles (or many other unicode characters)?

Tbh, it'd probably get annoying if we have that one person who adds laughing emojis at the end of each post they make as if it were instagram.

Actually, the forums would actually block them if you tried typing them on a phone, lol

To me it sounds like that's just a matter of getting bigger unicode support. But honestly for a forum I don't really think the need is that high.

It's a forum software thing and while it would be nice i don't think andwhy would go to such effort to make it work for what little tangible benefit there would be

Also it could potentially cause security risks.

Idea: for maximum memeing, add the B button as an emote.
