Slacking with Custom Emojis
In the world of chat rooms - strong communication is key. But sometimes, you might experience a Steemit-feel that can't quite be represented through the traditional family of emojis. Within Slack, @sndbox likes to communicate using the local lingo.
And so, the Steemit Celebrity Emojis were born.

Emojis are a staple in chatroom communication, ranging from the iconic and immutable “smiley” to the “Kappa” that wallpapers Twitch chats. Since Sndbox's backbone is Steem, we’ve integrated Steemit celebrities into our daily communication. Here's a working list of our personal favorites -
@mynameisbrian’s “Happy Brian” and “Sad Brian”
@sweetsssj’s “Sweet Stare”
Stelllaaaaa... belle. @stellabelle
OG Steemian @papa-pepper
Not mess’n around w/ The Good Whale @berniesanders
The most eccentric expressions go to @jerrybanfield
Big Gainz @dollarvigilante
Trust me, it’s a bubble w/ Jamie Dimon
Got places to go @heiditravels
And we once mispelled “steemit.com” as “steenit.com” and came across this little gem
And of course, classic Steemit and Sndbox swag
All emojis posted here are png files - free and open to download / use in your chatroom channels!
In honor of Friday, we thought we'd have a little bit of fun. We invite you to submit your own emoji! We’re especially looking for ones that reference figures within the Steemit community and express particular emotions, experiences, and attitudes we find on this platform. Here are the steps to follow -
The Competition Process
- Choose image(s) of your choice
- Format the image as an Emoji, 128 x 128 pixels PNG and preferably with no (transparent) background
- Create a post on your own account explaining why you chose the image(s) and use #sndbox in the tags and [Sndbox Emoji Competition] in the title
- Link your post in the comments below!
Submissions will be gathered until next week Friday evening EST, October 13th. We’ll put it to vote amongst Sndbox members and each chosen submission ranks 1-5 will receive between 10-20% upvotes. All submission posts will receive a partial Sndbox upvote.
