When my manager saw forum feature in Redmine he said:

Where are smileys? No smileys? Forum without smileys?! It's not a forum!!!:)

I think it would be very nice to have smiley-feature in addition to standard text formatting features like bold, italic, etc.
It must be something like this:

What for?
Redmine isn't a "sweety blog", is it?

#4 Updated by Nikolay Kotlyarov almost 13 years ago

It is not "just for fun" feature as it seems ex facte.
They are really relaxing the working atmosphere.

Just give it a try.

mmh, don't you think plain old ACSII smileys are just as relaxing as iconic ones?
Plus, they are portable and I think they're of good taste, for bare metal programmers ;-)

Don't underestimate.
Programmers are only a small part of all Redmine users:
managers, testers, editors, scenario writers, designers, authors, clients, end-users, etc.

A design would be storing the smileys as plain old text smileys, but (optionally) replace them with (configurable) smiley images when rendering the text to HTML. Alt text of images could be set to the original text smiley for bare metal users whose browser is still lynx or so! And they will have no problem entering the smileys: they input their familiar text-only smileys.

aka emoji, emoticons and emotes! +1. I can't imagine any platform which would have a Forum and wouldn't have emotes, especially in 2018.
