New emoji ("smileys") in Discourse 1.0.1

(Silver Quettier) #1

My apologies if a similar topic was created before. I could not find it.

So, I updated to Discourse 1.0.1 yesterday morning (to the latest “test-passed” version at the time), and among other things, I noticed that the emoji changed.

The old ones or the new ones being better is not really subject to public debate, as it’s a matter of personal preference, but let’s just say I now have a few users gathering in my street with pitchforks, and I think their number grows.

  • Can admins select a different emoji package?
  • If not, what would be required to offer that possibility?

Fifth from the top of the list in the UX Latest Category :wink:

The previous emoji have unclear licenses. The new ones are explicitly open source.

Selection is a good idea, but the previous default was unsafe.

You can now select from four Emoji families, and even add your own!
