so new door emoji?
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.
updates in emojis
retroactive updates in emojis ! I mean the new one might bring across another message
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 )
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!
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:
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 ?
(Do you mean in old posts, or any posts? I can’t remember it looking any different.)
I used to think 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 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.
Yes, it was “picking both noseholes at once”
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
or something like that.
I’m sorry I must use your own words, mate, but…
…they bloody don’t!
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.)
I was literally looking at doors when I wrote that, and you´re right.
But this seems to be a push handle, which is why I assumed you would use with the hand closer to it.
I´m still a bit tired.
