:birb_fish: Since birb.site loves and appreciates all species of birbs we are adding custom emoji so that all animals can be birbs. :birb_dog: :birb_cat: :birb_cow:

@minego There seems to be something off with the transparency? They look perfect on birb.site, but this is how this toot looks when I crosspost it to another instance.

@Anke Ugh... The first version I uploaded was broken. I deleted and added them again but I guess the other instances didn't notice.

I'm not sure how to fix that... What instance is it?

@minego tootplanet.space
Ah, I don't know if there's a fix for that. The admin there, @InspectorCaracal noticed something like that when adding emoticons and changing them, too.

@Anke @minego Yeah, when a custom emoji federates to instance A from instance B, it stores that emoji for instance B locally and there's no mechanism for updating the remote copies aside from the instance admins manually deleting the copy and having it re-federate.

@InspectorCaracal @Anke Ouch! Good to know. I guess deleting and adding again is the only real option then.

@minego As a note/tip, I've taken to using temporary :testthing: short codes to check out emoji before actually uploading them to the final shortcode to mitigate that issue.

@InspectorCaracal That's a good idea and I will use it in the future.

@InspectorCaracal Nice! Thanks.

I'll probably end up renaming tomorrow anyway to take care of other instances.
