How to use emoji

Hey everyone,

You may have noticed that when you're posting on the boards, the little emoji button:  only gives you 12 emoji to choose from! :scream:

But fear not! The boards do have a lot more to choose from. :relieved:

If you're using a computer (not a phone), the easiest way to add emoji to your post is to type a colon : followed by the name of the emoji you want.

As soon as you type a colon you should see a list of suggested emoji pop up. You can start typing the name of an emotion or facial expression to refine the list and find the right one:


If you're on your phone, you can simply use your phone's built-in emoji.

Here is the full list of emoji built into the new boards and their codes:

    Mike can we have a hug emoji soon? If it's possible. It's the only thing missing. 
    Some people think I am unhappy. I'm not. I just approach silence in the world that never stops talking.

    Hey @Abigail

    We do need a hug emoji! It's not something that's possible to add at the moment, but hopefully it's a feature Vanilla will add soon :)

    Just updated the main post with a newer list, with what appear to be new additions, including but not limited to: :mrgreen: and (my personal favourite) :bleep_bloop:
    All behaviour is a need trying to be met.

    Everyone is special in their own way. We make each other strong (we make each other strong.) We're not the same. We're different in a good way. Together's where we belong. We're all in this together. Once we know. That we are. We're all stars. And we see that. We're all in this together. And it shows. When we stand. Hand in hand. Make our dreams come true.
