img.ipsEmoji[src$="1f595.png"] { display: none; }

Thanks, found this ^ on that thread, but it's not working - did you do this and another thing to hide it @Gabriel Torres ?

Surprised @Lindy and team want the middle finger here (you can use it in subject lines too!) but I guess each community has a different policy for these things :biggrin:

@Joel R has a good response in the other topic about this sort of thing.

Thanks, but we've got a huge forum (nearly 300k users) and the short answer is we need a technical way to hide this emoji. If anyone can train people in general, on a global level, and both now and for all points in the future, not to post offensive content for attention, then that would be great :biggrin:

My code for images

 It is a unicode character like any other. However, we are seeing something funny here on our board. If we use the "native" emoji (e.g. entering it using a cellphone keyboard or copying and pasting it from here), the bad word filter replaces it. However, if we enter it from the emoji list (we are using the EmojiOne Style), it isn't replaced. See below.


Use Bad Word Filter to replace the middle finger

or use  jquery to remove it

$("span.ipsEmoji:contains('\u{1F595}')").remove();

It will probably be removed eventually anyway due to people getting offended by it.

 

From the IPS software? From the Unicode standard?

I can provide an answer for the latter:

Once a character is encoded, it will not be moved or removed.

The list of emoji is not something we control or have any control over. It is an international standard. You can find a list (and more information) of emoji here: https://emojipedia.org/

Well... you do have control as you can add it to the swear filter as others have suggested which prevents it from showing on the forum. You can also hide it from the smilie panel with CSS to help reduce people putting it in there - but if they do, it gets swear filtered anyway.

Just saying 🙂
