Poll! 📊 Emoji Reactions to Forum Posts

Shh, don’t tell anyone but my Monzo Mole* has left me a secret message to say that the reactions we had on the forum the other day were accidentally turned on by Discourse - the software and hosting provider behind this forum.

But! They also found the knobs to twiddle to turn reactions on - if the Community wills it.

No guarantees that our wishes will be enacted, but I’m excited to present my first semi-official-kinda poll!

Do we want reactions back?

  • :+1: Yes
  • :thumbsdown: No

We need custom emoji as well

What emoji would you like?

If people vote incorrectly yes then we’ll need a follow-up to determine the options!

:+1::heart::joy::shushing_face::grinning::unicorn::bacon:

Basically yes

You’ll have to explain the bacon and the unicorn…

Oh dear, I’m the outlier with my solitary vote against. I’m not a grumpy old man, honest.

They was already on my quick menu, lazily pressed them 🤦

But yes we need them, it adds to the posts by been able to react differently

It’s a no from me, unless all emoji are available and I can react with :roll_eyes: or :neutral_face: or :eggplant:

But honestly, I think it complicates a simple system. Not everything needs to be Facebook

Been able to react to a post in another matter doesn’t complicate anything. Anyone who doesn’t want to use it, simply doesn’t use the reactions.

Likey - or - No Likey

Keep life simple.

Next, we’ll be having a debate if the :fu: emoji can be used as a reaction.

Jeez, love that I managed to get the fu emoji in a post. Without insulting anyone.

So, speaking of which…

… looks like the masses have voted incorrectly embraced an emoji-filled future.

Now, the question becomes which emojis to include.

Thread your emoji suggestions below please!

I think this was a fair poll to put up (I asked @Peter_G to help pull it together :man_shrugging:)

Think I’ll give it til tomorrow then the results will define the future of reactions…

P.S the fu reaction is a big NOPE.

I’m off to drum up support for the No campaign.

Can we have Monzo staff as reactions?

If something is funny, it’s Jack.

If someone accidentally reveals what they’ve bought everyone for Christmas, it’s Dan.
