I’m seeing super huge emojis today.   Is this is a user or forum thing?  How do I go about not seeing them anymore?

Forum support suggests that the huge emojis are being copied from other applications or sites. The only way for us to get rid of them is to ban certain kinds of links and attachments, which wouldn't be our first choice.

If you want to link to the threads where you're seeing these we can investigate further?

They aren't being copied from other sites, it is the regular forum emojis. They show up huge when some people post but not others--may depend on the device used? Sometimes an emoji that is normal size in the initial post will turn into a giant emoji when someone quotes that post.

Here's a link to a giant emoji in the Book a Week thread:

https://forums.welltrainedmind.com/?app=core&module=system&controller=content&do=find&content_class=forums_Topic&content_id=684450&content_commentid=8326108

(I'm typing from my desk top, as I haven't been able to sign in on my phone or ipad for over a week.)

ETA: I had one pop up in one of my posts, where I'd quoted some text that included a normal-sized emoji; it turned giant when quoted in my post. This was from my creaky desktop computer.

They are definitely the emojies from this forum.

You guys must have done something new to them, as before this happened I could only see black and white ugly emojis on my computer, and now they are in color - but when you paste them they're huge.   But it's only happening to some people, so I have no idea what's up with that.  Like this: 😎

The 'Default' emojis that are more similar to the ones we used to have, that are waaaay down at the bottom of the emoji list, don't do this: :smile::ph34r::wub:

LOL, I've been using those since the forum switch-over anyway, because the other emojis were so small and black-and-white that I couldn't tell what emotion they were supposed to portray...  I really wish we could get all the old emojis back!  I miss willy-nilly and svengo and the dude sneaking out of the room, the group hug, and the jellybean people having a party...

Hm, seems I do not have giant emoji power today.

But I made someone's emoji big in a quote yesterday. Maybe I was posting from the kindle not my phone?

Okay, I'm quoting this small one again with my phone. My phone has always had the new emojis in color (unlike laptop), so curious if it acts differently...
