How do we remove the middle finger emoji from Slack's symbol set for our team?
1I would like to disable some emoji too. But it seems like it is not a feature yet as far as I can tell.– WillowAug 18, 2016 at 3:33
Speculation: Is it possible to change the appearance of the emoji?– Andrew GrimmJul 28, 2017 at 3:27
For others reading this, it is possible to add / change custom emojis (e.g. the rainbow parrot).– TahlorSep 5, 2019 at 18:49
This is not an official feature but there is a theoretical workaround, if you don't want users using the middle finger emoji in conversations. The easiest way is to delete messages containing the content.
To do this you must create a bot with moderator privileges, and ask it to delete any messages containing the phrase or prevent such
This is the middle finger symbols emoji code. Theoretically the bot will prevent them from ever posting a message that contains this symbol. If your trying to ban other emojis as well, you can find a list of codes here
