Emoji letter-avatars 😁

I just implemented this on my site and it’s great! (and kinda hilarious)

Requires a new emoji font for the letter-avatars service, and a plugin to add options to the system avatar template url.
I considered a variety of ways to let the user provide an emoji but I ended up simply extracting the first emoji out of the user’s Name or “About Me” bio.

Discuss this on our forum.
