    Strava now allows emoji. So we convinced the Emoji cabal to include the Team Bikenetic logo. ⚛️ That and unicorns.

    They are just unicode symbols, so you can copy and paste into the name you use on Strava, and they show up. And this site has listings of them.

    You just opened the floodgates. The Individual Points list is about to get real messy with emojis!

    DO NOT CRASH THE DATABASE. Anyone found crashing the database will have all their points donated to Steve O's team, unless the person is ON Steve O's team, in which case their points will go to whichever team is right ahead of Steve O's team.

    Errr... will the emojis really kill the DB??? Because I was kinda liking my new name: Death Snail Fries

    If you think it'll be a problem, let me know and I'll be plain again.

    it's probably ok. Databases and funny characters usually don't go together well. Do not ever copy a curly quote from MS Word and paste it into anything. If it's just basic unicode you're probably ok.
