So, I know there are still some paying members that still do not know how or what emote icons are available to them in chat. So I figured I'd create a quick FAQ for anyone wanting to look that up. If I missed any please post the icon with the command and I'll update it in case new icons are added that I don't know about. If there is already a resource for this information then I suppose this can be deleted but as far as I know there isn't and there are still plenty of paying members in chat unaware of this feature.

Bookmarked! Good thread.

I'm not a paying member, but I say this needs to be pinned to top of the main forum page.

I wasn't when I wrote this 4 months ago, NOW I AM!

I missed the original tutorial and this is very handy to know, hurrah.

I thought it was better when people had to figure these out, but oh well.

FINALLY! Never knew how people used them.

About time someone did this.

Who's Edgework? An engineer?

Yep.

#13 Edited by Demoskinos (14574 posts) -

So... it seems Edgework's emote is gone?

#14 Posted by TurboMan (7408 posts) -

I demand a Will Smith cum face emoticon by the end of the day.

For sure. Definitely need one of those.

You guys''ll just have to add more for folks to figure out then.

Yep.

Not only that but he's an engineer for GameSpot and Giant Bomb and currently is in charge of the chat redesign. Anyways he had to reset the chat to a previous state so some of the more recent emoticons aren't currently active.

Also everyone who uses this thread is a cheater, and I think less highly of you.

The current version of the chat client is 2 versions behind due to other issues with the site. This is why the icon isn't working. Also bugs fixed after Thursday are back.

It should be updated back to date today.

So helpful! I'm was so damn embarrassed cause I never knew how to do it in the chat. Thanks.

#20 Posted by Chemystery (214 posts) -

Someone should also explain the <> at the end of the show that everyone types.

#21 Posted by Noblenerf (311 posts) -

Great idea. I think it takes everyone a while to figure out how the emotes work so this will be very helpful.

Just be sure to keep it updated. I'm confident there will be new emotes soon...

Yep, but that means someone needs to draw him in Persona style.

Given recent podcasts and puppy chats, I'm wondering if GB is allowed to use the Will Smith Cum Face picture.

#32 Posted by Video_Game_King (36047 posts) -

So are these premium only now? I tried using them during Alex's live stream today, but it turned into something to the effect of "you don't get to use emotes".

#33 Posted by CornBREDX (4821 posts) -

finally someone shares this information.

I know what I was doing wrong now =P

#36 Edited by AlwaysBeClothing (1446 posts) -

You're a saint. A bonafide saint.

#37 Edited by TheManWithNoPlan (5249 posts) -

Didn't know about some of these. Thanks for linking it in the chat recently and posting this thread @demoskinos.

#38 Posted by mrpibb (460 posts) -

you're missing one :)

We'll probably do an emoticon cleanup in the coming week (lots of other bugs to fix, but it was part of the chat refactor).

#39 Edited by Hassun (971 posts) -

The Brad Muir one is good but a lot of the minor ones (ian, sweep, zombiepie, mirpibb, etc) should probably be deleted.

Maybe get a better one for Dave Lang and Alexis as well.

The The Sims diamond looks nice but I definitely wouldn't want that to replace <>.

Sick burn on all the mods/site engineers. You seem great at making friends.

#41 Posted by MB (12020 posts) -

@hassun: you should be deleted.

Also, just so everyone knows, we all sit there in secret hidden chat wondering when you guys are going to figure out all the other emotes that haven't been seen in the wild yet.

@mb: @bisonhero: Nothing to do with making friends or me not liking the staff, the staff is doing great work. It's just too much clutter.

Great post and nice to see all this info in one place. Been looking for something like this for a while!

#45 Edited by Hassun (971 posts) -

Maybe limiting it to 'on camera' people/objects would be a good idea.
