Mod Edit: This should be up to date as of 11/04/2018

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.

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.

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...

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 (9644 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 <>.

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.
