Emoji and sports team codes

so for those who want to use some code shortcuts for team names:

code to type output
$bc :bclions: BC Lions
$cgy :stamps: Calgary Stampeders
$edm :elks: Edmonton Elks
$ssk :riders: Saskatchewan Roughriders
$wpg :bombers: Winnipeg Blue Bombers
$ott :redblacks: Ottawa REDBLACKS
$ham :tigercats: Hamilton Tiger-Cats
$tor :argonauts: Toronto Argonauts
$mtl :als_red: Alouettes de Montréal
$cfl :cfl: Canadian Football League

feel free to use these for the GCC pool.


:bclions: BC Lions
:stamps: Calgary Stampeders
:elks: Edmonton Elks

They work but it looks like any comments to be made have to come at the end a space or two down. I can live with that.

I see. nice, don’t know where the smiley face came from though. I had typed bracket colon bracket but that came up

Emoji is the word.

I stand corrected. I was wondering about that.

It’s a derivative of the word emotion, as they’re often used to show emotion.

Could someone post below the list of NHL emoji shortcuts?

I’m likely the WORST person to give tec. advice…but I’ll try.

When you click to send a message, at the top of the red box your typing in you should see about 15 icons. The 8th icon is a happy face. Click the happy face, wait patiently for icons to load. scroll down to the very bottom. You should see NHL emojis.

The other way is… type
: Knights :
But without the spaces between the : and the team name



Let’s go, baby!

Thank you very much!
