Emoji Key

So you may have noticed a few small symbols, here and there, hanging out next to tor as part of my links. These are, as I’m sure you’re aware, emoji – Small images that have made there way into just about every modern means of accessing the internet.

I am using them to convey information about the links in question so it might be helpful for you to know what they mean. Here goes:

๐Ÿ“ฝ๏ธ – This link will take you away from my written work and over to Youtube, where I post some (slightly less professional) video reviews. I hope you enjoy them.

๐Ÿ”ฅ – This link contains (im)mature content. It may feature suggestive shaping, use of expletives or simply stuff that’s too hot for even me and my friends to keep down. The reasons for this symbol can be a tad varied so, for a better understanding of what it might mean, please take a look at my censorship policy.

๐Ÿ’ฐ – This link will cost you nothing to click on but somehow manages to make me money regardless of that fact. Chances are that it’s a link to a chilli-based producer or retailer who’s willing to give me a cut of their sales. Currently, I have none of these on my site but hey, a guy can dream, right?

๐Ÿ’€ – This link talks about a “dead” product. It’s sad but not everything is around forever and sometimes my reviews outlast the original item. If you’re still interested in reading about it, though, please do click the link.

๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ – This link, on the other hand, doesn’t talk about anything dead and gone. Its product still exists but simply isn’t in the UK any longer. If you’re situated elsewhere or simply interested in what I had to say about it, the review remains on my site for your veiwing pleasure. And, while the US version is the most likely one for you to see, I may use other flags as well, depending on where the product is made.

Those five are all for now but I may well add more at some point in the future, so do check back here if you find an icon that you don’t recognise.

Thanks for reading,
