Change emoticons to Blobs
They are better and have way more variety.
No. Just no.

Ew the blob emojis are so ugly. I'll cancel my Nitro subscription if the one's we have now get replaced by them.

@MazeFrame "Blobs" refers to the old look for emojis on Android, they're little yellow blobs.
Emojis are part of Unicode (together with skin tone modifiers according to the american drivers licenses). Unicode beeing an international standard makes working with them easy on server and client side.
Blobs? I work quite the lot with IT and never even heared that term.
Can I down vote ideas?
I like blobs, but Google emotes is already a thing, private and soon-to-be nitro-only, but yeah...
Overused and ugly
Heck no, blobs are a lot more dumb looking and not nearly as visually pleasing as normal emoticons
This is something I can get behind.
Many people like blobs more than twemojis so how about changing twemojis to blob and google has also open sourced them
So using blobs as default would be great
If people insist on this then do what Slack does and allow people to choose what they personally see (or a server setting that forces a style).
I really don't want blobs, I much prefer the ones we have now
If anything, it'd be much better to be able to change whether you want blobs or other themed emotes
Just FYI, Google are changing their emoji style and moving away from blobs.
I don't think this is possible 'cause (as far as I know) the blobs are mostly copyrighted, but if possible this would be quite cool.
I agree, however this should be an option
Currently this is what Slack uses: https://gyazo.com/242787be3e09ac642cab95a6c96ffd34
You can switch your emoji theme to different types (blob, regular, etc)

How 'bout no?
Please make blobs global, they're so much better than the regular emoji. The blob server is obviously a freaking mess to manage, but it's because people love the blobs.
