Is there a guide somewhere to implementing custom emoji? Like, not "how to load a file" or whatever but from the beginning i.e. how the emoji files are constructed in the first place. ping @ticky

@hugh I’m not sure what you mean by “constructed?”

@ticky me either, I think that’s my problem!

@ticky I guess the actual character just a small jpg?;is there a standard for sizing etc?; how does one link a shortcode to an image such that typing the code renders the emoji instead? I’m assuming there’s some documentation somewhere i just haven’t the first clue (clearly) where to even look for it.
