Mmm… it seems they even retro-actively changed the emojis!
A few days ago, you could still see the previous versions with the ?v=5 modifier.

:door: updates in emojis

I mean, we cannot go back and edit old posts, but they can?!

I am afraid to look at how messed up threads like these will be:

Hmm, I can still see the old crazy face in that thread (current one is :crazy_face: )

I remember that happening before. I was sad when my second emoji in this post changed - it was an open-mouth dismay kind of look which IMHO was much more fitting and amusing than the sad face it’s been turned into. I used to like looking back at that early interaction, hurrumph. (I’m also not sure what happened to the quoting there but that’s beside the point.)

I guess this will happen occasionally as they update them.

I was about to write it like that, but I was afraid to be too cryptic!:sweat_smile:

No, they didn’t. They simple changed the graphics of the site, but the codes of the emojis (which are embedded in the messages) remain the same.

Anyway I have the same problem since I usually choose the emoji on the smart bar of my computer. Sometimes after posting I find the corresponding icon in discourse isn’t fitting.

That’s quite odd. They share the same code.

I saw yesterday there was something new when I noticed this face: :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
I cant see anymore the old heart-shaped eyes face, even if the new one has a whole new code

For a few days that was a blank space in my emoji list.

This one :heart_eyes: ? :worried:
(Do you mean in old posts, or any posts? I can’t remember it looking any different.)

I used to think :exploding_head: was an emoji for a joke/reference going over someone’s head. With a little red arrow above his head.

Also, I could never work out what emotion :triumph: was supposed to be for. I used to think those white things were hands. Now they look more like steam coming out of his nose. Still think it’s a weird emoji for “triumph”…

Ok, let’s just go back to the good ole colon-n-parentheses :-)

Ah yes, makes sense. Well it doesn’t, but you know what I mean. Still it is cheating the versioning system. :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

Yes, it was “picking both noseholes at once” :rofl:

I think it is steam coming out of its nose as of your holding in some anger… so if you used it for that and then they change it in 6 months to a moji that holds up a trophy because that’s the new “triumph”…

I thought that was a life ring at first glance!

I’m thinking a lot of the ambiguity comes from designing them close up and then losing the detail when they’re smaller.

However, those seem to be left-handed.

That would be quite useful, actually. So far we have had to use two

Are you seeing the same doors that I see?

I would open that door with my right hand, and a flipped version of that door with my left hand!
(Just tested this on a door in real life.)
