        You’re missing the bottom row of dark hands. Please fix this before I spend all day thinking about it.

        It also wouldn’t hurt to change the font size on “this” so the middle row doesn’t bulge out.

          How bout this? Sync doesn’t support subscript so I’m not sure how this looks.


          Opened in browser, superscript looks better, still jacked in sync tho.

            It just put ~s on either side so it bulges more. I appreciate the effort though.

            Yeah, that looks good in browser. I guess jerboa doesn’t support subscript either.

      Do people actually use them like this? I’d assume its part of the joke, but then again I’m so old neither I nor my contacts use any emoji - we all “xD” and “:'D” each other like we did during the war I ought to tell you younglings about.

        I think it’s those who didn’t grow up in the internet age and came here much later. What Gretchen McCulloch calles “Pre Internet People” in her book Because Internet. Meaning they grow up before internet and were introduced to it much later. Think of boomers who get their first smartphone because their son in law is afraid they get lost in the forest or something. You get the vibes.

        So I think in this case it is part of the joke, making fun of older conservatives

        I think “I’m so old” doesn’t make the most sense as reasoning, considering that especially Boomers and old people are often famous for over-using emojis.

          It depends. Not using emoji is certainly a trait most often found in old people, it’s just that very old people swing in the other direction.

          It’s more of a missing middle. Boomers and some Gen x use emojis literally while Gen Z and some millennials use emojis ironically or humorously.

        My (very kind, sweet, wholesome) 70 year old boss at work uses a lot of emoji. Not to this extent, but more than one a text seems like a lot to me and he has used 4-5.

        I use :) and :D really much (the former extremely much, like really in every second sentence). :( also sometimes. But there are also quite some Emojis I often use, especially 😅. And being on Discord, there are also many custom emotes like :KEKW: I frequently use.

          Can confirm. Am millennial and I only use emojis ironically. And to acknowledge messages I don’t want to actually respond to on Teams.

          Woah now hold on there just a second buddy ol’ pal, we millennials are all about emojis! We called them smileys and emoticons sure, for forums and MSN Messenger etc, but we were all over 'em!

          Then text messaging and Facebook came along and didn’t support that stuff and we were sad, but now they’re back!

          Except standard emojis suck, they’re better on stuff like Discord now where you can just upload whatever emotes you want and use them wherever, and they can animate too! Really feels like being back in the forum/MSN Messenger Plus! days 😁

            The odd emoji at the end of a message is fine. It’s embedding them throughout the text that makes it borderline unreadable.

      Yeah… tbh it’s the main thing I miss on Reddit. The userbase of Lemmy seems to be older and unrelatable to me. Also tbh the meme subs were wayyyyy more dank on Reddit.

        I mean, it is a bad thing when you can’t relate to anything. We should strive for age diversity to account for this.

        I still don’t and probably never will understand why people use the same emoji more than once in a row.

        Every other word is tacky and hard to read but I get it’s like… just a thing for people who grew up with emojis instead of little text emoticons. Or like older people trying to be a fellow kid kind of thing.

        But the same one 5 times in a row? That’s just nonsense.

        (I know I’m responding to a copypasta. It’s just on the topic.)

          Don’t get too hung up on emojis, they’re just a new form of text! Most people I know use them ironically or to respond to coworkers that you don’t want to type text to.

          As far as I remember, text filled with emojis was used by FB-era people to do like MLM (mid-level-marketing; pyramid schemes) ads. First time I saw it used not ironically.

          Their text style was ripe for mocking since it was tacky af.

          Some me-melords turnt it horny and usually a lil gay and you’ve got purposely tacky and over the top copypastas! Like this one (personally, not enough emoji for me):
