While putting together the finishing touches on our cloud Forem a few early users asked about more reactions for posts/comments. The initial thought was that our community is coming from Facebook which has a number of emotion based reactions, so it might ease their transition to have some similar reactions in this new space.
But that got me thinking about the possibility of custom reactions. Sort of like slack's custom emojis but probably limited to common "reaction" types that could map to custom png images for each Forem. For my community we could use Harry Potter symbols instead of a unicorn for example.
Are there others that would find this valuable?
