Why not both?

What do you mean? How are we supposed to use both? You either get these ones that incorrectly express emotions, or the cute af gummy emoji.

Why not zoidberg? :smile:

I dislike the current emojis and would prefer the others.

I don’t think there is anything wrong with the emojis we’re currently using, but I don’t really use them that much so… I was just thinking that perhaps we could have both, but if Google’s are that good, I don’t see why we couldn’t use just those :smile:

I personally do like the android ones the best. I wish discourse had a client side flag that could be set by users to change emoji, that would be best.


That could also be dangerous :wink:

How? I am not suggestion they upload their own. That would be dangerous, just like sponge install something around the lines of 5 or 6 emoji libraries then you pick your favorite out of a drop down list on your preferences page.

The current emojis are adorable! :frowning:


But the Android ones are more adorable and better represent the emotion.

Moved to Meta so everyone can join in the discussion.

Was just tryin to liven up the Lounge .-.

Then make a non-poll thread then :wink:

Can confirm, 404 spongie inspired by :frowning: emoticon

How is that not cute? :trollface:

This is the best emoji ever.


Here you are @the_Snake

How about this? Here is a userscript to change the emojis to a type you like. It uses the emojis already hosted by sponge. Just edit the top part of the script to change the type. Enjoy, feel free to modify / make more efficient I made this in all of 2 minutes.

// ==UserScript==
// @name         Sponge Emoji
// @namespace    http://your.homepage/
// @version      0.1
// @description  enter something useful
// @author       You
// @match*
// @grant        none
// ==/UserScript==
var types = ["apple","google","twitter","emoji_one","none"];


//Sets emoji type set number of emoji type you want.
// 0 - Apple
// 1 - Google
// 2 - Twitter
// 3 - Emoji One
// 4 - Remove Them!
var select = 4;


var emoji = types[select];

var all = document.getElementsByClassName("emoji");

for (var i=0, max=all.length; i < max; i++) {
    var e = all[i];
    var a = e.getAttribute("src");
    a = a.replace("emoji_one", emoji);
    e.setAttribute("src", a);
    if(emoji == "none"){

In the short attention span I gave this I could not find a way to fix the emojis that appear in some way shape or form that is not accompanied by a browser refresh. I was hesitant to put a setInterval in there for fear of the potential lag it could create. If you want it to do that DIY.

This should be runnable on greasemonkey or tampermonkey, though I have only tested it on tampermonkey.


Seems to only work if I paste the script into the console. Greasemonkey does seem to execute code, but seemingly not in the page. Which is weird.

@Owexz input please?
