Emojis - out with the old, in with the new?


Staff member
Hi Folks,

Q tells me we can add some more emojis and maybe get rid of some of the less popular ones.

I'd like to see these go  :icon_321:  :alien: :greed: :unsure: :cautious:

I really like these ones:  ;) :eek: (y) :hug: :sneaky: :coffee:  :beer:

....and I'd like to see one for digging, which someone posted once but I can't find it.

I'd appreciate your feedback please on emojis you'd like to replace and ideas for new ones, thanks, Pegasus  ;)

I like emojis but will never use

:ang:    :D    :bow:    :read:    :mad:    :greed:    :hug:    :kiss2:    :spank:    :alien:    :mad:  :blink:    :chair:    :coffee:    :cautious:    :halo:    :icon_321:    :idea:    :tease:    :unsure:    :yucky:    :cry:

Ideally I would like an emoji that says "I am joking, do not believe what I am saying is true because it is obvious to everyone, a joke, everyone but you it seems"


I like emojis,  They can add all important context to comments.

Anyone who doesn't like them is an idiot  :mad:

Anyone who doesn't like them is an idiot  :tease:

Anyone who doesn't like them is an idiot ;) :LOL:

All have very different tones. 

The more the merrier I say,  no really need to get rid of any, but I guess I can see why  :icon_321:  might not be wanted.

UKbouldering as some good ones that I use on there, but are not available here.  (Same software, so would have thought they were available).

Can see why the blue one and perhaps the green one may not be needed, not sure about the others as seem innocuous enough.

Can anyone find a digging one???


I've hardly ever seen these ones used:
:cry: :greed: :kiss2: :alien: :mad: :blink: :cautious: :icon_321: :idea: :cry:

Also not sure why there is :ang: as well as :halo: ?

My favourite Teams emoji is a dancing penguin, though it's hard to see its relevance to a caving forum.
Then again, it's not really relevant to the office.
