Can we get a more modern Thumbs up Smilie in our list? I think that some posters are posting stuff that is coming thru as code.

just isn't as cool looking as some of the modern 👍s.

I was asking because several posters are using a thumbs up or other emojis that as coming thru as just code, unless it is only displayed as such on the Safari browser.

The reason that some emojis are showing as code is because users are using the ones directly from their phone and not the ones hosted on the site. The site's software isn't able to read them so it shows it as jumbled code. We're working on getting this fixed so users will be able to use the emojis from their phone.
