Hi @ryan4257, @SkylineUK and @stevefoster.

The issue with the emojis is a known bug with Discourse, our Community platform. We’ve raised a ticket highlighting the issue with them, as I certainly want it sorted too! Hopefully we’ll get an update from them soon - keep your eyes peeled (insert eyes emoji).
