Option to Disable Automatically Converting Text Emoticons to Animated Emojis
It's extremely irritating to me when messenger programs decide they get to dictate what emoticons I can use, because they want to "conveniently" substitute their own emojis for the text emoticons. I went to look for an option, given nearly all modern messenger programs have one, but as near as I can tell, Skype gives me zero control over it. I realize this is likely convenient for most people, hence why I'm asking for a toggle. I really like the look of text emoticons, and wish to be able to use them as I please.
