    I'm getting board with the limited amount of emojis we have here. While I realize we need to be youth friendly, a few more emojis wouldn't hurt.

    Sorry, no bananas that need to learn manners.

    I agree. I want an emoji for everything, so I can communicate entirely in a weird pseudo-hieroglyphic language.

    Words are for chumps.

    I'm just waiting for 1x1 pixel emoji so we can type our own images to each other. Eventually maybe somebody could interlace these images and make moving pictures in a Great Interlaced Format file—or GIF for short.

    But if everything is emojis, we won't be able to use Roman numerals for arithmetic any more, since all the letters will be gone. Then how will the bankers and financiers survive? No one will want to visit Vth Avenue or XLIIth St.

    Maybe we should use those cool (and scary) Mayan numeric glyphs. Not the dots and bars, but the face glyphs, where the number is represented by the face glyph of the "patron deity" of the number. Also cool (and scary): base-20 (though technically a modified base-5).

    Is this more emojis in general, or more emojis on MacRumors?

    Doesn't matter to me either way really
    If there were NO emojis at all, I would be fine
    But I don't care if there are thousands, as they become meaningless anyway
    And who can keep up with them all?
    And apparently some of them have hidden meanings that are lost on me, so there's that

    I will occasionally send my wife a smiley or a heart, but other than that, not so much
    And I don't interact with anyone who sends an abundance either

    I don't understand the hatred of them though
    Take 'em or leave 'em
    And don't sweat the small stuff in life
    *its all small stuff

    Agreed. While I don't use them, it doesn't bother me when others use them or send them to me.

    Only thing I wouldn’t mind is a search box in the emoji keyboard as it’s ridiculous to just scroll through a million emojis looking for the one you want. I might use them a bit more often then...

    Apparently Apple has neglected everything except emojis so Arn should just call up Tim and ask him to lend Macrumors their massive emoji team. /s

    I think we should have a second WWDC in the year just to Apple can go through these new emojis one by one.

    Apple should start an Emoji-a-Day club and charge a membership fee.

    For extremely dedicated members, for whom one per day is insufficient, other denominations could be provided at different fee levels, say a Peck-per-Fortnight, or Firkin-per-milliCentury. And yes, I expect there to be emojis for peck and firkin.

    These three express my reactions to most posts here, especially in PRSI:

    :confused::eek::mad:

    I don't think I need any more.

    This.

    I’m not fussed. I find the site already allows a perfectly good way to communicate in the form of words.

    Back in my day we printed them on papyrus.

    Since the device was connected to a computer, we called it a line-papyrater.

    They should even dress up as different emojis, so we get the real deal.
    Just imagine....:D
