Change the 5 default Emojis

How can I manually change the 5 default emojis that come up when typing a colon?

I would have thought those 5 defaults would update by my actions (favorites), but they don’t, they are the same regardless. Which means I have to click on “more” and go to the full list every time, since my favorite emojis are not in the 5 default.

Sincerely,
Mike

Hi @Mikael_Baggström,

we don’t have any way to change this at the moment. It’s hardcoded here:

While that might not be hard to add it to the API, no one has ever asked this, so we are well under our rule of 3. If it was accepted it would be very low priority probably.

@zogstrip ?

Ah well, never hurt asking at least. And I of course trust you prioritize well in the development process. :slight_smile:

I would personally love that feature :stuck_out_tongue:

I think we could get started with using local storage to count the # of times specific emojis are being used and use that to improve the list of the default emoji used (when we have enough data).

We actually already have “discourse_emojis_emojiUsage” in local storage (used for recently used emojis), but it’s used for the big picker, I could mix them and ensure each of them is populating the same one.

Less work is even better! (I had a feeling we were already storing that information somewhere)

Yes that would be a nice feature, the default is fine but if we have info on which emojis are being used the most by that particular user we could replace it with a better, more specific list.

Does it store the tone value too?

Eg. :+1:t2: :+1:t2:

Yes it does, it will store in this format:

["woman_pilot:t4","smiley"]

This seemed like a nice feature to start the day, pending review/merge, that should do it:
