[Feature Request] Favorite Emojis, Hide Emojis in menu

    100% support! I've been wanting a feature like this for ages. The current "frequently used" category is great, but incomplete.

    To illustrate with an example as to why— There are emojis that I like using in certain situations (my own "stock reactions" if you will), but because the context where I'd use that emoji comes up less frequently than contexts where I use other miscellaneous ones, they fall out of the "frequently used" category and back into the depths of my many servers' custom emoji banks where I have to type it by name to use it with ease.

    And, like all automated "frequently used" ease-of-access features, it becomes an infinite loop. Those emojis are easier to get to, so they're used more often. Then they stay there, whether or not there's one I might prefer to replace it with. Having pins or favorites for emojis would solve that well!


    Hiding is just as important of a feature, honestly, if not doubly so for a system where server managers are the ones in control of what emojis you get for the server (and you always see those first), rather than the individual. I can't tell you how many times there's been a custom server emoji that's bothered me to no end. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I'll never personally use it. But, if it isn't my server, I have to see it up front and center each time I click into the emojis tab to react.

    If I can't control the emojis available to me on other peoples' servers, I'd at least like to be able to hide the emojis they assume will be useful/relevant when they aren't.

    As an extrapolation to this— for those of us with Nitro, it'd even be nice to be able to sort all emoji in a custom order altogether. Whether just arranging server emojis outside of where the server is on our list, or burying a server's emoji under the default ones. A bit more of an undertaking, I'm sure, but just a thought!
