Emojis

  1. This is gonna be a weird question.

    Is the set of emojis just a standard set that can't be changed, or are there other options that could be considered? I ask because the smiley face that occurs when you type the most common smiley (a colon followed by a close-parenthesis) is this:

    It looks very smug and, as weird as this may sound, I think the smugness has set off agitation in threads before, escalating the conversation to the point where the thread has sometimes needed to be closed.

    Is changing to a more neutral emoji (or even just changing/expanding the emojis) an option?

    Sorry for the delay, Julius.
    I don't know the answer but will ask of the technically-minded folks who care for the site.

    Thank you for asking, and for your patience!

    Sorry, there are no plans to change our smiley set. But, it as something in our todo list.

    No ETA.
