Too many Emojis

  • Since the new update, all I see are Emojis.
    Please, Forum Moderators, don't use a: :wave: every Hi and a :tropical_drink: every Bye.
    I know you are proud of this new function but please don't overkill me, I like it every now and then, not every line. That was all :end:
    Thanks :slight_smile:

    P.S. The emojis were a bit ironically used in this post :envelope:

  • I keep imagining that in some future epoch, archaeologists digging back into our then-ancient ruins will be baffled about the meanings of all our 'modern' hieroglyphics, on everything from traffic signs to data embedded into flash memories. I sometimes wonder if we're reverting back to an age of picture-writing. ;)

    probably since we already lost our ability to levitate things and read minds.

    1. Clicking on the "emoji" button hangs my Firefox for quite a few minutes. A pop-up flagging some 'unresponsive script' issue.
    2. I lack (some of) those simple yellow smilies. Also, starting to type a 'tongue' (however it didn't work eventually), the forum bogged me with a dropdown with several "P" starting emojis (which I don't need); can one disable that?

    We can awaken it.

  • Some suggestions:

    • A more grouped emojis.
    • Custom tab to add user's selection.
    • As Mobile's OS, "recently used" emojis tab.

    Windows 10 (x64) | Anniversary Update
    Opera Stable · Beta · Developer

    Test profile | Back up Linux · Mac · Win

  • Tongue is usually ; and P (I had to insert something in there to make sure it wouldn't give me :P ) And it suggested every other emoji that starts with "P", arranged alphabetically.

    If you are using an old browser, it may not give you all the emoji. Some of them didn't exist yet when Opera 12 was out.
