I don't think Chrome even requires an extension on Windows for emoji input. Just right-clicking in any input field shows me an "Emoji" keyboard option. Because I keep accidentally selecting the damn thing....😒 Certainly won't mind if/when phpBB decides to replace the default smilies picker with an emoji picker instead, though.

I do use them but personally I don't like emojis. It reminds me of thirty odd years ago when you couldn't rely on a diskette you copied on one PC to work on another PC. They're fine for mobile use but they resolve differently on (proper) desktop machines. At least :shock: will be :shock: correctly at the receiving end. I don't see the point of a phpBB built in emoji picker, every keyboard I use already has one.

I don't see what the big deal is. they are just smilies. better graphics maybe but still just smilies.

If i remember it correctly that symbol was stolen from people who worshiped The Monkey King. Haven't used emojis a lot, but some are nice.
