Title: "Should the police emote be removed from the forum" poll
Post by: de_la_Nae on 30 Mar 2021, 23:11
I don't know how possible it even is, and obviously this is just some user making a poll, utterly non-binding. but it just occurred to me, i don't use the emotes much and i was looking through and realized it was staring at me and i don't like it, all things considered. maybe you don't care? that's possibly fine. but i'm curious! i don't really care too much if you say your vote, just click the poll thingy. there's a thread or three in Discuss forum if you want to actually talk about serious things

Well, it's a friendly policeman...

But it's not much used.  Perhaps simply moving it to the "more" section so you don't see it all the time would meet your needs?

wouldn't even call it a need, paul, though i appreciate the thought.
just like, it struck me and i wanted to ask what others thought. i'm not actually asking for it to be moved or removed, at this time

I'm not personally offended about it, but strikes me as a step towards defunding so I am all in favour of it going :mrgreen:

I rarely ever use the emotes, and honestly didn't even notice it was there, but I am all for eliminating even the appearance of supporting police just on principle, so if it is an option I'd be for getting rid of it.

I don’t generally use them, as well.  Although, if the copper one continues to stick around, I think that a proper “Bobbie” tit-head helmet should be exchanged.  Where policing went wrong is when it ignored Peel’s principles.

Proposal: replace it with the pig face emoji.
