They did not come through on the goodie. I sent you a goodie with a note on that. Those showed up as the question marks.

Those came through. However, those are more of the basic ones and browser's can have trouble reading those to post them correctly, especially if they are more complicated than the ones that you posted here. So, you may want to either stick to the more basics with smiles and hearts or not use those on the site without using the Add an Emoticon button in the areas that have that option.

Yes, I'm adding them with my phone, which is a Sony Xperia Android.

I sent you a goodie, and when I checked it after sending it, all the emojis are turned to question marks. Do they show as emojis or question marks at your end? What about here?

Heart


Smiley face


Kiss
😘

Are you adding those with your phone or another way besides using the "add an emoticon" button?

Thanks Denise. Yes, I have added you as a friend so you can now see my Spark page album, which is set to private.

Just to clarify emoticons and emojis....

I just learned that emoticons are characters on our keyboard (such as a smiley face with a colon and bracket), whereas emojis are the little pictures (like a heart or yellow smiley face) .

So my message should read that I'm having problems with my emojis being translated into weird and irrelevant characters. I am *not* having problems with emoticons.

Can you give me a link to an example of where that happened for you so I can take a look?

Could someone please help me with my emoticons/emojis? Sometimes they're turned into symbols or question marks after I've sent them and sometimes they're not. It has caused great confusion with one of my dearest friends when I thanked her for her kind support, which was followed by a bunch of question marks instead of a sweet emoji. So of course it reads as a very sarcastic message that upset her.

On looking at other messages I've sent and also my photo album, I see it has happened often - though not always. Can anyone explain why and how to prevent this problem, please?
