Hide Unavailable Emojis to Users Without Nitro
Emojis are a great way of expressing how you feel. Discord's feature to allow users to add their own emojis allows for a wider range of emojis. Emojis can be as simple as Squidward dabbing, to the infamous rainbow dancing blob emoji. While a user can upload and use emojis in the same server it came from, they can't use the emoji in another server if they don't have nitro.
A user without nitro is unable to use emojis from other servers. While this is expected, it also floods the emoji picker tab. To user a regular emoji, the user has to either:
- Scroll down to the regular emojis.
- Click on the regular emojis tab on the right.
While the second option allows you to easily get to the regular emojis quickly, it's a waste of space to keep unavailable emojis in the emojis list when the user can't use any of them.
You could use the two options I mentioned above, but I believe hiding the emojis you can't use without purchasing nitro would be a better option. This could either be the default, or it could be a toggleable setting. Just like how searching for an emoji won't bring up emojis you can't use, seeing a ton of emojis you can't use in the emojis tab by default isn't much better.
This would be really helpful, because I'm only in around 7 servers and the long list of folded servers still makes my emoji list crowded. What more for people with hundreds of servers?2
I'm totally supporting this. I haven't Nitro (i can't afford it because Discord haven't regional prices), but i have some useful smileys through twitch. So while i'm present on a lot of servers, i have to scroll down, to those servers with smileys i can use. That is annoying.
So option to hide smileys i can't use would be rea-a-ally nice.2
Fully support this! I think a toggleable setting would be nice, since it still would, by default give Discord the ability to advertise the Nitro emoji perk while still giving people unable or unwilling to get Nitro a little reprieve.
Related, but if you type the name of the emoji out on desktop :likethis: but it assumes it's an emoji that you can't access (especially exasperating if you're in multiple servers that have the exact same custom emoji with the exact same name), it wouldn't preview the emoji in your text as if it were something you could use. You could disable this under the same switch as above.2
