Why does it look like I'm having an impudent laugh when all I typed in is "" ?
It's indeed not a huge deal, but I feel like it sometimes may reflect inappropriate to the clients, likewise from clients to freelancers.
Is it possible to improve, even replace them? Maybe Facebook-like emojis would be good? I mean I'd like having "" untouched, but if it has to be an emoji, I think it should be a good one.
Any efforts on this, Upwork?
p.s. Community emojis are different than the emojis in Upwork Messages. Community ones look much better, and I have no complain about them.
Well I was already horrified by the smiley that I didn't even try the 'grin' emoji. Thanks for the warning.
I also don't think using emojis is somewhat inappropriate; being in a professional relationship doesn't mean that we shouldn't be putting any feelings into what we're doing. But seems like I'll be keeping it away from them unless Upwork makes some changes.
I agree that I don't love the basic smile emoji in messages. The first time I saw it from one of my freelancers I was a little taken aback, then I realised it's just Upwork's choice for the emoji. I (and my freelancers) quite often use basic smile emojis in communication and I've got used to it now, but I do think it could be a bit more restrained.
I was talking about "colon followed by paranthesis", but sure when you do that it automatically converts to the emoji.
The emojis here are fine, I made that statement to the smiley in the Upwork Messages.
I had to search to see if anyone else is bothered by this issue
Upwork, how about changing the default emjoji for : ) to instead of
Its super akward everytime i throw in a smiley and it looks like im laughing hysterically at my own statement.
