Emojis split up on react and showthread 2 (ancient bug)

Problem Summary
Emojis split up on react and showthread 2 (ancient bug)

Problem Details
When typing certain emojis on ST2, they split up into several forms, they don’t say in it’s original format like it would on every other website.

I would have hoped that TSR would have fixed the issue on the react system but the issue still occurs.

I’ve noticed this bug for over a year BTW.

Additional Information
Look at screenshots to see what I mean.
IMG_2009.png The unsubmitted is how the emojis are supposed to look (original format), the submitted version is how it appears in practice (emojis spilt up).
Thanks for reporting this. I can reproduce it and will log the bug.
I'm linking to your posts with the examples in for reference.
Edit: Please note these are in a forum helper forum so not all users can access them!
Example here and here
Example emojis that do this are:
Face in clouds 😶*🌫️
Woman technologist 👩*💻
Woman singer 👩*🎤
Woman facepalm🤦*♀️

Yep good point. These are some example emojis that will display incorrectly, as you pointed out, in case anyone can't see those links:

Many of the others display incorrectly as well (some of the flags I think for example but I not going to check this).

Thanks 🙂 Yes, there will be others too I just wanted to include some examples for reference so we can see the issue when we come back to it. There are some emojis that are actually two emojis combined together and I think it is these that we don't currently support and display properly (but I might be wrong!).

I see, thanks. Hopefully the issue will be resolved on ST2 and react or at least react.
