Are there plans to support the slight_smile emoji? It kinda irks me that
:) gets translated to . Here’s what would be ideal, IMO:
:slight_smile:(rendered from the
.aiassets added to Twemoji in #67)
x)--> this one should be U+1F60A (smiling face with smiling eyes) but it’s unfortunately been adopted in some emoji packs (including Twemoji) as
:blush:. Not sure what can be done to rectify this. There is no Unicode emoji specifically for a blushing face; if there is one eventually,
:blush:can be mapped to it rather than U+1F60A and a different emoji code could be used for the latter. I’m not holding my breath, though.
Just for kicks, I’m listing below the corresponding eyes with the standard mouths. I added a checkmark or cross to indicate whether the shorthand is currently translated to the face in Discourse. It would be nice to have those mappings added.
;D--> (missing in Unicode emoji, apparently)
xD--> (this is kinda redundant with the current
:)--> , so I guess there wouldn’t be much lost if the
:)mapping was changed)
