With the availability of the new ASCII Emojis, I am issuing a new style directive on the Diner.

In the titles on the Subject Line of your post, stick to ONE Emoji, either at the beginning or the end of the title.  Let's not overkill here.


I don't now how to find all these new emojiiii's aND ALSO DON'T KNOW HOW TO PLACE THEM IN THE TITLE?

ASCII Emojis are just like text you keyboard.  They each have a code behind them and each platform has its own version of the character.  So what you see on Apple looks a little different than what you see on Windows or Google or Android.

The easiest way to add them to your text is to go to https://emojipedia.org/ and copy/paste into your text.

Procedure is as follows:

1- Open up a window with the https://emojipedia.org/ website
2- Click on the category of emoji you are looking for or type the keyword in the SEARCH box at the top of the page.  If there is an emoji for it, the search will find it.
3- Click on the emoji you want to use, and a new screen for that emoji pops up.
4- Click the "copy" button for that emoji
5- Go back to the window where you were keyboarding and paste (ctrl+V) wherever you want (including in the Subject (Title) Field)

No html or bbcode tags are necessary.  It's just like a text character.

Knarf, so far no ASCII Emoji for the NTHE Symbol.  You do have the Skull & Crossbones though!



RE's advice is good and proper. But RE didn't mention what I immediately became confused by and I'm sure you were confused by as well. Teaching is not RE's strong forte, to put it mildly.  ;)

Here's the deal:

1. Those dad gum emojies do NOT show up in the preview, but they DO show up when you post in the title or in your post.

2. Just put a bunch of them in a wordpad document and copy and paste the one you want as the occasion requires it. (i.e. go to the https://emojipedia.org/nature/ web site and copy and paste into a blank wordpad document you label as Emojies text fun and games).

3. Save your emojies wordpad document and open it when you are posting.

4. I have my emojies document open now and I will now copy and paste an appropriate representation of a lousy teacher: 🦀 This can be placed in the title the same way.

5. In the body of your post you can make it bigger by just making it bold and increasing the font size too🦀

6. Have fun but remember RE doesn't want us to have too much fun or he will rain thunder upon we mortals.  

7. One more thing: The font that Microsoft interprets the emojies as having is Segoe UI Symbol. This means a few of the emojies don't show properly in your document. I haven't figured my way around that. I hope da godfader is in a good mood and will kindly show is how to do dat widout to much hair pulling and so on. 🐉

Sampling of Segoe UI Symbol Emojies that don't show up right on a wordpad document (i.e., they show as vertical rectangles  :():

🦓🦒🦕 🦖 🦔, etc.

As you can see, they do show up fine here, so if you can manage to tack these graphics with cut and paste from a paint graphic print screen onto the wordpad document next to their corresponding vertical rectangle , you can then ID them before you use them.  8)

Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life. Pr. 13:12
