    It's my understanding that there are 8 emojis aka smilies (mad, adoration, blush, dancing, dunno, phbbbbt, prayer, and tee hee) that are currently hosted on an old server and not working with certain browsers.

    I would like to know if there is any intention of moving these 8 emojis from the old server to a new server that supports HTTPS. I hope this is not a huge ask, but I wanted to make this formal request as my question is getting buried in the technical thread.

    Stretch goal: Since the last emoji update I believe there are more Star Wars related emojis available. So if the move of "the 8" is happening, it would be cool if we could get any new ones added to the current library if available.

    Thank you for considering this request.

    From the "post technical questions and issues" thread for reference:

    I would use the heck out of a thumbs up emoji.

    Why do R2, Chopper, and BB8 all have 2 emojis, and there's none for Wedge, or Poe?

    Genuinely curious are the Star Wars emojis custom or did you get them from somewhere

    They are adapted and resized versions of the official Star Wars emojis. Yes, that’s a thing! I have a full second set ready to go, and I’ve had for a long time, but as you may know we are dependent on a third party to access the server. Less than ideal, but it’s what it is!

    If there's is no Jaxxon emoji, then what's the point?
