Hello, I had in mind for quite some time the idea of creating an emoticon pack here on Dev Wiki. I was thinking of adding EmojiOne since they have a free license. Since MediaWiki:Emoticons is just a list of image URLs, there is no need for anything complicated, but only for a place where upload the emoticons and then create the list of them.
Adding the whole EmojiOne pack is a bit too much so I was going to add just the "basic ones". However, we are still talking about 225 images therefore I wanted to know if it was ok to upload here that many images.
I was wondering, maybe I should add all of them after all? They are a lot (~1800) and I won't make a list of them like EmojiOne (too much work), however by uploading them here on dev wiki, we allow anyone to use any emoji by simply changing their unicode.
I believe you can upload the font here (unless the file extensions have been disabled). From there it's probably a very similar set up to FontAwesome/code.css, although I'm not sure how you'd go about making emoji fallback to that font.
