UserScript: NF Forum emojis

Recommended Posts

EDIT:

Emojis are now part of the forum software thanks to @ahartzog, scroll down to see how to use them  🎉 ☺️

 

 

Original post in spoiler:

Spoiler


I found the emojis that are included with this forum software to be weird. I often couldn't find a fitting emoji to use with my posts Poo. And the emojis that are there I have no idea how or when to use... Like :adjoint: or :satellite: what do they even mean? Thinking 

 

So I've written a TamperMonkey userscript that gives you a box of more modern emojis to use. So when writing a forum post Book, just click on one of the emojis and it'll be inserted in to the message.

 

This is what the box looks like:

There you can also see all the emojis I've added so far. You can easily(-ish) add your own. Or you can request an emoji to be added by replying to this thread :) 

 

The script can be installed from here: https://openuserjs.org/scripts/tlundberg/NerdFitness_forum_emojis

@Tobbe yeah, I had to run a ut8 --> ut8mb4 conversion in the DB so it can correctly store emoji. It was mostly automated but timing out so I had to jump through some hoops and update a bit of config. No other cool features, sorry! Although I believe the forum software will now auto parse smileys and such to emoji.

And by typing colon-emoji name-colon, like this 😃

On windows you can also get an emoji selection dialog by pressing Win+. on your keyboard ⌨

@Tobbe This is awesome! thanks so much for doing this.   If I may make a request, we desperately need a :massive eyeroll: emoji :) .  

 

  :rolleyes: <--- This one looks way too satisfied and  🙄 <--- this one just looks confused/scared.   Not sure how possible that is but I'm sure a good one would get loads of use around here

Now that we went the way we did with the emojis I can't really control what emojis there are or what they look like. It's up to your computer/phone to decide what they look like. 

The eyeroll emoji is notorious for not being all that great. For that one in particular there's even a warning that it looks very different on different devices.
