Thanks for the information. Does Unicode make public the source images received from vendors? Or, is there somewhere else you would recommend for me to look?


Kindest Regards,

We were getting so much traffic on the emoji pages that we had to produce an abbreviated version to reduce the load (without skin tones, it is about half the size). 


We are looking at improvements to the infrastructure and/or chart design that would let us restore them, but people are busy with other Unicode projects right now.

Hello All,

The Full Emoji List [1] had, in the past, displayed Emoji with all skin tone variants. It seems that this is no longer the case. Does anyone know if it is possible that this could return in the future?

This data was useful for myself, as scraping this data allowed for me to identify "homographic" Emoji from a variety of vendors. Additionally, I could see how vendors approached skin tone variants for difficult-to-distinguish Emoji (for example, SNOWBOARDER often features a person with no visible skin).
