Lightbulb emoji's in posts

I see a lot of hieroglyphics posted rather than the intended emoji. Perhaps the emoji posted is not supported by the GBO VS software, but that is supposition on my part.

GBO has a menu of emoji's that are supported. I suppose we can petition for more, if that suits the Membership. The users of emoji's that do not post should start a request in the Administration "Forum Support Team to Tech".

Seeing the hieroglyphics in a post does nothing of interest for me, but I could just be being curmudgeonly this morning...

your probably seeing the cub scout code. A few posters use cell phone characters to swear and put down others in code.

For some reason I can only have access to posting emojis if I start a thread. If I do a reply to anyone other's posts I cannot access them.

At least I know what's going on now. I never could figure out what they were all about.

Jim...you and me both. I thought it was emoji's but never really investigated until this morning. Now I know for certain. Still I don't like seeing the unsupported ones and hope those that use them will request Tech support.

It's called a Grawlix, scrambled letters and symbols which means "profanity."
They have nothing to do with emojis.

I used to use smilies, I still call them that, from other web sites but the good sites are gone.

Not true bug. When I do it you can count on it being a Grawlix as you call it. I have checked on deeís who I know you are referring too and his are emojiís... I thought the same at one time and out of curiosity did a search. I was wrong. Please donít tell my wife she will mark it on the calendar...

Well ok.
what kind of emojis are they??
A bunch of scrambled letters and numbers are just that, a bunch of scrambled letters and numbers.
Dee was asked about it and he just said emoji, he gave no further explanation, which, to me, means that he didn't know.

Plus, I've seen many emojis here such as machine guns etc. that worked.
