What does CC's wrench emoji mean ?? Does it mean "you need to work on this ?" Or maybe "this is good to know, I'll stick it in my tool box for later." ?

Any thoughts ??? Also any other emoji you're confused about??

Good to know !

When giving reaction emoji's clicking the Show All link next to it shows all the ones given, by who, and what the given emoji means.

I don't blame you - I thought it was "I don't like your post so much I am about to dismantle you."

It means....you have a screw loose.

Hold on that would make it a screwdriver.
Here we call it a spanner as in 'throw a spanner in the works. ' i.e fix it!

I thought the blue i in the circle meant useful or informative.

the zzz one I think means 'your post puts me to sleep' or 'its wayy to long' or 'BORING'

the alarm clock Im not sure. Maybe it means 'wake up!'

On my laptop the hearts reaction is labeled "friendly." I expected it to be labeled "romantic..."

The surprised emoji seems like it should be a wow emoji. I feel like there needs to be a 'wow' as in wow, that's incredible emoji and a wow, as in, "just wow, I'm speechless, I can't believe you just said that" emoji.
Also ABC could be, this is so elemental, kind of a nice 'duh' emoji, but alas it is for the few on here who are annoyed enough about someone who didn't use spell check's advice? Their, there, they're, is up there in my top 10 "gets under my skin" spelling errors, but I seriously wouldn't use the ABC on a post unless I was really having a bad day.

I am glad you brought this up. :)

I also think there is a difference between, haha funny and crying funny. So @17Bees. imagine the "that's funny" emoji reaction I gave you was minus the tear. Where, ware and weeeir definitely get under my skin too. Lolz (no tear again)
Also, let's talk about the heart. So a simple, "love this" yeah, this is great, glad I read this. is so different than a "I CRAZY LOVE THIS!" which actually if I crazy love something??? I'm probably just going to not react, and just leave it as a 'wow in my heart' moment.
But... WHERE did you get the poop emoji? Am I still such a newbie here that I am not allowed having the poop yet? Wait, :rainbow: is that how you did it? I will have to wait to see if I made a rainbow appear.

Emojis I'm missing here at CC that I use all the time: Cry as in actual crying face emoji, upside down smiley, various plants and flowers, chicks, birds, sunshine, globe, umbrella, all the various forms of water emojis. Where do I get these? Are they part of the award system here?

Where do I get the poop? Well, you might not be seeing the header tools at the top of the page if on a phone or maybe a tablet. But if you are, then click on the smiley face and Mr Poop is all the way at the end..... appropriately enough.

My favorite emoji didn't survive the site's makeover. :cry: I used it all the time. It sort of looked like this guy:

if you press or click on the emoji reactions it comes up with the word describing what it is.

The alarm clock means 'old' and the zzz means 'boring'
