    I came here to suggest this be implemented. I have a server that uses numbers and symbols, and the fact that they can't be grouped together makes it very difficult for them to be used properly. We're hesitant to add more emotes because it's that more likely that the ones that should be grouped together will be lost in the chaos.

    I'm also a moderator for this server, and I think that emoji folders would honestly be a fine addition, if it's easier than what we're suggesting. But yes we've had multiple people complain, including some members of staff.

    I agree. Being able to sort emojis would be very useful.

    The emojis are sorted in Z-A alphabetical order. You don't have to delete anything. Just rename them according to the order you want them to be sorted by.

    There isnt an easy way to do that where it wouldn't disrupt people who type out the emoji codes. My server tried that with underscores, and it was supremely unpopular. They preferred it the way it was now in comparison, and I wouldn't have come here if it was fine how it was.

    It works just fine for all four of my servers, and I've never had a complaint. They actually prefer it in my experience, cause everything is grouped together and it's easier to type one letter and get all emojis in that category. 

    For example, I have various sign emotes (Yes, No, Stop, Wack, Fail, etc.) and they all start with "s_". When a member types "s_", Discord shows them all the signs in my server automatically and they can select or finish typing out the code. I do the same thing with emotes based on memes ("m_") or emotes that look like faces ("f_"). And some I have sorted by emotion/feeling "sad_", "lol_", "mad_", "d_" (for dance), etc. etc.

    It's not that difficult.

    I'm certain it isn't "difficult" to organize them with emoji name changes, but the issue is that we explicitly tried something to this effect. It didn't work. People hated it. I forced people to deal with the new changes for a week, and while it was an upgrade for people who didn't type emotes out, it was *not* successful with everyone else. I was inundated with complaints.

    We held it to a vote, and the server voted they would rather things stay the same for now until a better solution could be reached. For our server, "s_" isn't really on the table. However, Discord is capable of coding a way for admins to organize emotes the way we want them to, and from the people I've talked to, it wouldn't be a major hassle.

    PLEASE DO THIS

    I have over 50 custom emojis in my server, and I want to be able to group them by purpose/genre without giving them strange names to get them in the right order alphabetically. Surely this isn't a difficult improvement to make.

    Any updates for this idea? Would still be very, very useful!
