The current server emoji organization is sorted by reverse alphabetical order, leading to either a) an unorganized emoji menu for members or b) a need to include prefixes before the emojis to have some resemblance of order. Especially for servers that have lots of emojis (and even more so for boosted servers with additional emoji slots), the current configuration makes it difficult for server owners/staff to manage the emojis. Hence, I propose a concept of better organization, which includes:
1) Emoji Search Function:
Similar to the Role Search function, searching for emojis will allow admins to easily edit or delete emojis instead of scrolling through a lengthy list.
2) Drag & Drop / Custom Ordering:
In this setup, emojis are default ordered by date added. However, if desired, admins can rearrange them through dragging & dropping, which allows them to customize the order by which emojis appear in the emoji menu of their members. Custom ordering can also allow easier management of the emojis that disappear when a server boost loses a level. For example, if a server drops from Level 2 to Level 1, instead of the latest uploaded emojis being grayed out, it can disable the last emojis in the list. Admins can thereby adjust the order to choose which emojis are gray.
3) Emoji Folders:
Grouping certain types of emojis by folder allows admins to organize emojis that are the same "family". Furthermore, this has the function of mass-rearranging the order of emoji families, as folders should also have drag & drop capabilities. In the example concept above, if an admin decides they would like the blob family to appear first, instead of at the end, they may simply drag the folder to the front of Wumpus. Unsorted emojis will automatically appear at the end of the last foldered emoji. Clicking into an emoji folder should also allow arranging options within the subcategory.
