    Just wanted to throw this out there.

    I've been using the site for about a decade now, and sometimes it would be fitting to use emojis. But the collection of emojis this site has is really, really bad. If you check out what emojis Whatsapp has or any other sensible platform or forum, most often they're actually usable.

    This site is full of these kinds of emojis:
    :noodles::pickle::greatkat::village::hber::frantic::eddie::congress:

    None of which are usable, relevant or informative. I get it - I lived the times at 04/05ish when MSN Messenger was a thing, and then these kind of emojis were a bit more "funny" and maybe got used.

    But I never see anyone use those, and when I'd like to clearly convey a "uhh... okay" or "fuck yeah" or a guilty face etc, I always find I can't express it.

    Do you also feel that an emoji overhaul would be fitting for the forum?

    I’ve always thought SSO emojis were charming.

    lol I too wish we had more/better emoji's.

    I tend to use the "ok" lady, the "hand raise" lady, and thinking one's a lot on google Chat and fb haha

    The lack of a heart emoji is a pretty glaring oversight. :sponge:
