Thanks for the feedback and discussion / ideas!

We want to limit the reactions to VERY specific and distinctly separate emotions. There shouldn't be any ambiguity in what a reaction means. This is why we will always have a very limited set of reactions, but a larger variety of emoji's.

That said, there are some reactions we might consider adding... like one that conveys "care/support" and "informative".
This is the benchmark we use with regard to reactions (and also to an extent with smileys)

Regarding a "question mark" reaction: My reply to the idea of a "confused" reaction is the same:
We probably wouldn't add this as it's more appropriate to reply to the thread / post with a specific request for more information / details and specifically what about the post was confusing. Just showing confused doesn't really help get us to a better place of understanding.
If someone insists that they would rather use an image to express confusion or a question vs. a more specific "Sorry, I'm confused, could you help me understand what you meant by xyz", then using a smiley would be a 2nd best option:

:confused:

He understands that, but he has already stated that he does not want a confused reaction because it makes more sense to use your words.

If you want to react with a ? or a confused face, you can reply and put in an emoji expressing the same thing.
Okay, that's that then. Thanks or letting me defend and express my point.

It made sense at first to have a question mark reaction, but as I’ve read through, I think it does make more sense to simply reply. Leaving it at a question mark would not benefit the situation, as it couldn’t explain WHY it was confusing, and couldn’t help get to further understanding.

I think that the ℹ reaction, could be helpful. The informative reaction would be like a flag that encourages other people to read it. I

Hi all (especially mods)!
I was wondering if you could add more reactions to this site. I am on another forum that is pretty similar to this one and it has a ton of good reactions that come in hardy all the time. Here is a picture of the reactions:
From left to right: Like, Love, Haha, Cool, Agree, Wow, Sad, Informative, Clapping, Optimistic, Hug, Welcome, Creative, Thanks. View attachment 2380255
I think that it would be helpful if you guys could add some of these. Agree, wow, and thanks are very useful. Thanks for hearing me out!
Just a ♥ would be good to add! I feel awkward using 😍
