Yeah… I really liked the old version of :cry:. The new version is far closer to :disappointed: (but still doesn’t look as good)… Is it possible that we could have them changed back, or is this a new “initiative”?

If it’s a change it’s Discourse’s fault. :slight_smile: Best to complain to them. https://meta.discourse.org

I found Emoji and Discourse | Blog interesting

:crying_cat_face: :cry:

IT IS NOT EVEN CRYING!

Moving this to a new topic because this is a matter of utmost importance!

I’ve noticed that :cry: and :wink: are actually pulling from the wrong files when posted.

Instead of https://sjc3.discourse-cdn.com/business6/images/emoji/twitter/cry.png?v=3 it’s https://forum.choiceofgames.com/uploads/roblox/_emoji/cry.png?v=3

WAIT! That posted the right ones! Hrmmmmm

@Parrotwatcher @Eiwynn Can you try again? Is it fixed? Is the emergency over? Are the emojis back?

WAIT no false alarm, it’s back to the ugly ones.

Hrm okay it keeps changing. I don’t know what’s what anymore!

If I type the emoji in then it seems to show up. The moment I use the emoji interface though it switches the emojis to the ugly ones. (Or if I edit the post)

And now it didn’t again… (It looks like the edit thing’s failing, too, now.)

Everyone’s emojis look normal at the moment to me, not the ugly ones. They flipped when you edited.

Nope! Back to being ugly!

Maybe discourse are messing with someone. Hrm.

Clearly the only solution is that this is an attempt to force us to stop using emojis and instead rely upon our words! OH NO!!!

But how will people tell if I’m joking or being serious? I might accidentally offend someone (or they might think I’m joking when I start talking gay rights… :disappointed:).

It’s all the fault of a certain French panther, or so I’m told. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

the emojis are taking a stand against humanity!!! :scream: call in the cyber squad!!!

So the emojis are in rebellion! The first to revolt were @FairyGodfeather, @Cecilia_Rosewood and @Eiwynn … since I’m :innocent: mine must have been set up by the others…

:frowning:

@Snowpanther did finish a Girl’s Prison Gone Wild game for her class today - so it must be her wild inmates; that’s a neat story we can all write about.

Yes, happy, cry, wink and anger :grin:

I’ve contacted Discourse support to ask them to clarify.

EDIT: They’re investigating.
