Consolidate repeat emoji
I'm in many servers that are all part of a larger community of people and as such a lot of them reupload the same emoji from other servers so that people who don't have nitro can access them. However this means that as someone with nitro, I end up with 15 identical :plus_one: and :rainbow_heart: emoji. It would be nice if Discord could notice when emoji have the exact same name and image and not duplicate them.
Considering the emojis are all sourced from individual locations and are tied to a separate originating file this would be nearly impossible to detect. Currently the emojis just append a ~# to the end to distinguish between them.-1
This really doesn't seem even slightly difficult to do. We're talking about bit-identical files uploaded from the same original source. It would be easy to, for example, hash the files on upload and consolidate emoji with identical hashes (or even consolidate only if they have both identical names _and_ identical hashes, if you want to be conservative.)
It seems like there is already a system for emoji to exist in a shared global pool, so all you need to do is point into the existing pool instead of adding new entries if someone uploads a detected duplicate.2
It would also be nice if Discord could tell when a Twitch Integrated Emoji is a duplicate.4
Bump. Still seeing duplicate emotes all over Discord. Including stupid -1 ones.1
