New steps for Slack on Twitter: “@thorduri 😣 You can always disable emoji conversion in Preferences > Emoji > Convert my typed emoticons to emoji. 👍”

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/09/18

After: @thorduri You can always disable emoji conversion in Preferences > Emoji > Convert my typed emoticons to emoji. [WayBack]

We live in the form-over-function era [WayBack], so of course this setting is not reachable by URL, only reachable by using these steps:

  1. Click on your username
  2. Under your account name, you see “Preferences”. You’d think these are your **global** settings, but they’re team-specific.
    • Yes you **have** to change the default behaviour for each and every team you’re part of. This is the Web-something-dot-zero era. Duh!
  3. Do **not** Ctrl-Click the Preferences (that will bring you to https://gexperts.slack.com/account/settings where gexperts is your team name) which are different settings than you’re after.
  4. Click on “Preferences” which will give you a small sidebar menu (again specific to your team)
    or top menu (if your display is narrow)
  5. There you click Messages & Media which brings you to the settings you want:
  6. Look ma, slack without graphical emoticons!

    Look ma, slack without graphical emoticons!

    There, I made these selections (see screenshot on the right):

    • Emoji Style -> None: plain text only
    • Disabled Show JUMBOEMOJI
    • Disabled Convert Emoticons

Probably these will change (as they already have since the above tweet) but this should give you a head-start.
