emojis are not a problem for me
Yes, because Windows use a different font to display Emojis.

@Catweazle No you've partly missed my point.
...are NOT available to you external to the forum software. Lookee here:
Here's a post [well, the final three words] of mine, to which my friend later attached two reaction-emojis [as indicated]. The fab thing about this tool is that we can react to posts via one or multiple emojis without even needing necessarily to actually create a written reply-post. Your windoze & other forum emojis cannot help you here, unless the forum itself has this tool natively, as is true of Discourse fora with this plug-in enabled by the Admins.
Here's the temporary reaction-emoji pop-up from which we choose our response:
Obviously you'll recognise the individual emojis themselves; they're not what's special. The special part is simply being able to respond pictorially, quite separate to needing a formal post.
The emojis that you mentioned are only useful to you once you have begun drafting an actual post... not at all what i'm talking about here.
@Steffie , ah, Ok, so I got you wrong. I was referring to the emojis available for the written response, of these there are quite a few, also in this forum in two menus in the edit bar.
In another forum we also have some emojis to put them as a rating apart from just the 'Like', but only 4 basic ones. It would be nice to have it here, true, but I don't see it as important either.
But to return to the topic, it should be added that in certain social networks the Like button is directly a spy that provides data about the user that is added to other metadata and it is therefore not recommended to use it on these sites.
@Ayespy Thanks for the link. News to me.
