    I think adding Emoji One support could be usefull, instead of stripping all of the emoji out of the posts you could leverage this library to have cross platform support of all the emoji.

    We already have emoticons, I don't see how using emojis would be an improvement

    To make this post not completely off topic I'm trying to figure out what you're asking. Are you saying to replace the currently emotes with the Emoji One emotes? So that users on other platforms can see them as well? I've only been on Windows but on which platforms does it strip the emoticons?

    Not replace, just add missing ones.

    We have missing emotes? I guess you cant miss what you never had. I like our custom collection of emotes.

    There are tons in the Unicode spec that are not usable here.

    We already have support for an alphabet full of letters which can be used to make words. When used correctly these are much more versatile and expressive than 'emoji' which are the pictorial equivalent of monosyllabic grunts.

    Well, clearly this was a stupid idea.
