Welcome to Emojicons, your one-stop plot of internet land for every ლ(╹◡╹ლ), ¯\_(ツ)_/¯, ಠ_ಠ, and (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻ you can possibly imagine. We're here to serve your every textual need, providing a relentless number of ways to refine your chats, tweets, IMs, Facebook posts, YouTube responses, Reddit comments, forum flaming, rage quitting, trolling, and every other type of written discourse. Emoticons, kaomoji, facemarks, and smileys galore!
So indulge, coddle, and rampage through this site to find every emoticon that speaks to your whimsical soul, then fling copious amounts of it all across the internets :).
What else can you do?
Suggest new emoticons
Got some emoticons we don't know about? Click on the orange plus on the top right corner to inform the middling monkeys running the site and they'll spend time researching and curating your suggestions for possible addition to the site.
Create Your Own List of Emoticons
Craft your own collection of emoticons that best encapsulate the funky way you do things online, then send your page to friends and enemies and kittens and grandparents.
A Fancy Schmancy Bookmarklet
Access all the emoticons you've hoarded in a handy-dandy bookmarklet that pops up on any site you visit so you can flip a table everytime it's necessary. We're building Safari, Chrome, and Firefox plugins too. Maybe even IE!
What else is coming?
Tons. We (well, mostly I) built this site to catalog all the neat ways people online (and off) are using emoticons given the freedom we now have with ascii/unicode support on most websites/browsers/phones, in hopes of expanding our collective knowledge of these fine linguistic tools. There's a gigantic, poorly organized list of tasks and features we want to add, including things like an API, browser extensions, mobile apps, limited edition t-shirts and skateboard decks, huge Hollywood parties with performances by Taylor Swift and Kanye West, a huge Rilakkuma plush mounted atop a RC blimp we can fly around the office, and funky little emoticon candies, all of which we'll get to if the time ever comes :). So hang in there, holler at us, and spread the word on this dapper little project.
Caveats (for you nerds)
Some issues that I've come across building and using this that you may claim victim to:
- A proper typeface for Linux-based OSes (Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, etc) that handles all this unicode isn't in the font stack due to lack of testing time/resources.
- Haven't worked out kinks on mobile/tablet browsers yet. Bare with me :3.
- Multi-line emoticons are possible, just avoiding adding them for now to reduce complications with displaying them, but they'll be in here eventually.
- Fixed-width emoticons, similar to above, will also be added once proper appropriations in the code have been made.
