Why is there an orange square after the hand?

Do you know why there's an orange square after the hand emoji?

:raised_hand:🏻

That's a good question, maybe it's something to do with the forum not recognising skin tones for emojis yet? Did you type it with the normal emoji keyboard on an iPad/iPhone or pasting it from somewhere?

It seems to display in the preview when I type from keyboard:
:raised_hand::raised_hand:🏻:raised_hand:🏼:raised_hand:🏽:raised_hand:🏾:raised_hand:🏿

oh, I see when I stop editing, those squares appear. I think it's to do with the forum not recognising skin tones yet, but skin tone support for emojis is a planned feature :smiley:

Like t1 said, it's for emojis with skin tones. :D
