Emoji standardisation on Pixelation

on: February 22, 2016, 12:47:32 pm
I'm wondering if we should adopt the emoji standard on Pixelation. On one hand, we already use the same syntax, with non-standard names and on the other hand, it'd be a good challenge to do all of the needed emoji. Then there's the fact that now that they are standard, everyone is going to switch, and maybe we shouldn't be left behind. The amount of websites that uses the standard is already staggering.

Not sure, thoughts?

Here's the standard for those wondering (with sample implementations by a few companies):

I demand cats, robots, aliens and the poop thing!  :crazy:

On a serious note, I think this is a good idea!

Btw, for those wondering, the idea is in part that you'd be able to use your emoji keyboard (iPhone, etc) on Pixelation.
