We currently have several emoji sets to choose from and can add custom emoji to those.
I would like to propose either or both:
- disable/enable individual emoji from the default sets
- ‘empty’ emoji set(s) where the admin adds only custom emoji (or copies them from the existing emoji sets)
On my existing (non-Discourse) forum I have a rather limited set of emoji. I personally feel that having only a few basic emoji to convey basic emotion benefits the discussion.
