Civic Mirror Adds Emoji Support to the Forums

The Civic Mirror Team is proud to announce partial support for the various emoji characters that are found on iPhones/iPads and other mobile devices. From Wikipedia: ” … the word literally means “picture” (e) + “letter” (moji). The characters are used much like emoticons elsewhere, but a wider range is provided … ” Up until now, attempting to use these characters could result in forum posts not saving properly.

We initially discovered this problem when we received automatic notifications from the forums, telling us that certain posts were not saving properly. We tried to contact some of the posters to gather more information but in case we missed some, we would like to apologize to all students and teachers that may have encountered this problem. We would also like to extend our thanks to all students and teachers that helped us solve this problem.

There are literally hundreds, or possible thousands of emoji characters out there, so there may still be some that are not yet supported.You may find that after saving your post that some characters are converted to a slightly different looking picture, or a completely wrong picture, or a question mark. You may also find that some characters may appear correct on your own mobile device, but not to other devices and desktop computers. If you find a problem with a specific emoji, please report it here  and follow the instructions.

We encourage everyone with access to a mobile device to try out some emoji the next time you get a chance!!
