#8935 new enhancement

Unify smilies among protocols

Reported by: Afief Owned by: salinasv
Milestone: Component: custom emoticons
Version: 2.5.5 Keywords: unification


Usecase: I'm chatting with two friends on MSN and XMPP, I use the MSN smiley X a lot, so I tend to type it in the XMPP conversation as well, but the smiley is not defined there.

Expected result: Both protocols support custom smilies therefore it should be possible to send whatever is not defined in one protocol as a custom smiley.

Logic: The protocol icons were removed because users shouldn't care which client/protocol they are talking on as long as it is the same buddy. By the same reasoning a user shouldn't have to check which protocol he/she is on to know which smileys he/she can use.

I guess this is related with #7140 I'm working on that patch and it's almost done.

Yes it seems to be very similar, but #7140 is about making what pidgin users see equal what MSN users see, this is more about unifying the smilies everywhere.
