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:

Plain text list:

:-1: (thumbs down) :+1: (thumbs up) :angry: :anguished: or D: :astonished: :bawling: :bleep_bloop: (space invader-type thing) :blush: or :3 :cold_sweat: :confounded: or :s :confused: or :/ :cookie: :cry: or :'( :dissapointed: :dissapointed_relieved: :dizzy: :expressionless: :fearful: :flushed: :frown: or :( :grey_question: (question mark) :grimace: or :$ :grin: or :D :heart: or <3 :heartbreak: :hushed: :innocent: or o:) :joy: :kiss: :kissing_blush: :kissing_wink: :lol: :love: :mask: :mrgreen: :naughty: (devil face) :neutral: or :| :no_mouth: :open_mouth: or :o :pensive: :persevere: :rage: or >_< :relaxed: :relieved: :scream: :skull: :sleeping: :sleepy: :smile: or :) :smiley: or =) :smirk: :star: :sunglasses: or B) :sweat: :sweat_smile: :tired_face: :tongue: or :p :triumph: :trollface: :unamused: :warning: :weary: :wink: or ;) :worried: :yum:<br>

    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:

    There's a part of me I can't get back.  A little girl grew up too fast. All it took was once. I'll never be the same.

    Plain text list added for those who can't read images. :)

    For any techies: any idea how to make the line breaks show up as line breaks rather than the code <br>? It's using the 'code' wrap which strips out any formatting and replaces it with code, so admittedly that's what it's meant to do. I'm just pretty sure I've managed to get line breaks appearing in a code box before, but I've no idea what I did differently this time for it not to work. Might just be me!

    For anyone who happens to use a screen reader: I assume the <br> is super annoying?

    Yes i wondered what that was. No idea how to fix it but reads a bit funny with my reader

    @Mike this doesn't really answer your question but @liam made a list of the emoji codes in written text here (https://community.themix.org.uk/discussion/3596838/emojis#latest? If that's useful?

    That’s not all of the funky code stuff @Eleanor

    @liam yeah but if you put the words in colons then you get the funky code stuff 🤣

    Ah! I had no idea this thread existed - that's a good way of doing it. As @Liam mentioned, I wanted to include the colons, but that might not be possible while having it look good. :tongue: 

    Cheers for the input @independent_ - I've just removed all the line break code for now and left it as a list of code. Not sure how useful that is, but either way we've got @Eleanor's thread too. :3

    I personally think :cookie: is underutilised
