Where do you want to use the emoji?

If you want to try out a sample of the emoji first, join the official Discord server :D.

Are you an admin?

If not, you'll need to ask your server admin if they can add the emoji for you.

If you have Discord Nitro, you could instead make your own personal server for custom emoji. This means you can use whatever custom emoji you want anywhere without asking your server admin(s). You can follow the next steps with your own private server.

What computer are you on?

You need to be on a computer running Windows, macOS or Linux to upload emoji to Discord. You can't do it on tablets or phones with iOS or Android.

1. Download and unzip the emoji

Download the emoji package below.

Then unzip the download. If you're on Windows or macOS, you should be able to do that just by double-clicking the .zip file.

2. Add the emoji to your server

Check out the link below if you don't already know how to add emoji to your server.

3. Attribute

Attributing is a legal requirement, but it's also generally cool because every designer deserves credit, and it helps people find the project! Don't worry, it's really easy.

Copy the text in the box below and paste it in a #readme / #about / #rules channel, or any kind of channel that users can't chat in or edit. If you don't have one, make one!

copy + paste this:

Are you an admin?

If you're not an admin of your instance, you'll need to ask your admin if they can add the emoji for you.

Do you want to add all of the emoji, or some of them?

If you want to add some emoji, go to Option 1. If you want to add every emoji, go to Option 2.

Option 1 (some emoji)

(Instructions accurate as of 2.3.0)

  • Go to Settings.
  • Go to the Administration Section.
  • Go to Custom emojis.
  • Scroll to the bottom and click the Upload button.
  • Add the image and type the shortcode (usually the filename of what you've added).

(Instructions accurate as of 2.3.0)

  • Go to Settings.
  • Go to the Administration Section.
  • Go to Site Settings.
  • Copy the text in the box below and paste it somewhere in your Instance Description:
copy + paste this:
<p>This instance uses <a href='https://mutant.tech'>Mutant Standard emoji</a>, which are licensed under a <a href='https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0/'>Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License</a>.</p>
  • Scroll to the bottom and click Save Changes.
4. (Optional) Provide instructions

If you are providing all of Mutant Standard's modifiers in your instance, you might want to put this quick reference guide somewhere in your instance for your users.

Done!


Option 2 (all emoji)

You need Mastodon 2.5 or higher installed on your instance to use this option.

Keep in mind that Mutant Standard is in beta and some shortcodes are expected to change over time, which may cause conflicts or older emoji that don't get replaced. Mutant Standard also has a lot of emoji, which might cause bandwidth or page loading issues when your users are using the emoji picker.

If want this option, it's recommended that you use this unofficial script (made by multiple creatures), once you've imported the emoji. This hides all of the colour modified emoji from your instance's emoji picker to save your instance's bandwidth and resources.

If you don't feel ready or capable of managing this, go to Option 1.

1. Download and add the emoji

Download the latest Mastodon package by clicking the button below:

Mutant Standard emoji
Shortcode, Mastodon TAR package
30.6MB
2. Add the emoji

Unpack the .tar.gz download, then unpack and import the emoji.tar.gz bundle inside of it. Consult Mastodon documentation to find out how to import. (This is a bit complex and out of my depth to offer as instructions, I only know that this is possible, sorry!)

1. Download

Shortcode
Codepoint

Codepoint emoji have machine-readable filenames based on Unicode codepoints (ie. 1f642, 1f3b4, 1f44d-1f3ff).

Use this if you have complete control over a web app and want to replace Unicode Standard emoji sets with Mutant Standard emoji, you want to browse Mutant Standard emoji by codepoint, or you just want any kind of software to go through Mutant Standard for you.

Codepoint packages don't have all of the emoji that are in shortcode packages. Find out more here.

2. Use

If you're not sure how to use the emoji, this page has guides for various apps that might be able to help you.

3. Attribute

If you're just playing around with the emoji personally, you don't have to do this. If you are using them somewhere in public and fair use doesn't apply, then attributing the project is a legal requirement.

Don't worry, it's really easy. Just copy one version of the text below and paste it somewhere based on some of the tips below.

If it's a website or social app, put it somewhere static.

Put it in a static place only admins can edit (like a readme channel, about page or footer) and where anyone can easily see it. It should not be put in a message or post.

In other visual works, place it somewhere noticeable.

If you're using the emoji in some non-moving visual work, place it somewhere next to it wherever it is presented so people can see.

If the emoji are appearing in a presentation or video, place the plain text small version somewhere that works for you.

Use the full size if you can, but use the mini version if you can't.

If you can, place a full-size version, but if you don't have space or time, just use the mini version.
