Create a lip-biting emoji
Have you ever experienced an emotion that you couldn't find on the emoji keyboard? Can you recall the frustration you felt coursing through your veins when you had to resort to a less accurate emoji? Us Apple users demand that this emoji shown above be made available in the next iOS update. It has been too long since the creation of Apple emojis in 2008 that this facial expression be excluded. It is absolutely outrageous that we have 13 different emojis for trains/railroad cars in varying sizes and colors, 14 different emojis for arrows pointing in differing directions, 24 different emojis for clocks at every hour and half-hour mark of the day but not a single one describing anything even remotely similar to this emotion. For the past 12+ years, we've been forced to resort to emojis like such: ��� none of which properly convey the emotion we are feeling. The fact that graphic designers have decided to take this matter into their own hands and create the emoji shown above reveals the extremity of this situation. Please. As Apple users, we are demanding you to do better. Create. This. Emoji.

Bring back the original "Grinning Face With Smiling Eyes" emoji to iOS
Everyone loved the previous "Grinning Face With Smiling Eyes" emoji. It was ambiguous enough to connect it with different emotions and sweet enough to make you say anything without being slapped in the face afterwards. A perfect combination of shame and joy. As Slate put it: During the golden era of emoji, we used their flexibility to transmit hard-to-articulate emotional nuggets of significance. Take, for example, that weird indistinguishable grin-grimace emoji: [no emoji support at change.org]. According to emojitracker.com, it’s the 15th most popular emoji on Twitter. Its slightly-guilty-slightly-pleased-slightly-embarrassed-but-still-excited expression made it a favorite, I suspect, because we often experience this dynamic maelstrom of feelings in real life. Like when you ask someone for a big, irritating favor that will also deepen the intimacy of your bond. Like asking a new friend to borrow their car for a weekend. Or asking your boss to let you leave early to go to a concert. A lot of asks occur, for better or worse, over text, and the grin-grimace was a trusty analog for this complex shame-joy we experience. Humanity needs this emoji. Period. Once again I quote the article from Slate: Apple's designers fundamentally misunderstood what made emoji great. This is the death of emoji, or at least the beginning of the end. RIP little friends. Amen to that.

Make the Thanksgiving Turkey Emoji
A Thanksgiving turkey emoji has been proposed to Unicode, the non-profit organization that oversees the coding standards for texting and emoji. We at the Butterball Turkey Talk-Line — the people who talk (and text) about turkey more than anyone — echo the feelings of Thanksgiving-loving folks everywhere when we say, “It’s about time.” Every other major holiday has at least one emoji. There’s fireworks, champagne, and noise-makers for New Year’s Eve; cupid hearts for Valentine’s Day; ghosts and jack-o-lanterns for Halloween; and so much more. But Thanksgiving, the most-celebrated holiday in the country, doesn’t have an emoji that truly captures the occasion. “But there’s already a turkey emoji,” you might say. And yes, there is. But it’s not a delicious Thanksgiving turkey. So—just like Christmas got a Christmas tree, even though there was already a perfectly good pine tree—Thanksgiving deserves its own emoji too. Because Thanksgiving is one holiday that’s really for everyone. And if any Thanksgiving symbol is going to become an emoji, it has to be that iconic symbol of the holiday—a perfectly roasted turkey. So please, let Unicode hear you, and sign the petition.

Please make the Lion Emoji happier
The current set of emoji's contains only one lion, and its face looks quite sad. Sadness is not the first thing people think of when they imagine a lion. Some alternative lion moods could be courageous, fierce, or playful. So tech companies who have the power to edit and publish emoji's / emoticons, please redesign the sad lion picture into one that is either happy, fierce, courageous or playful, or make one or all of these options available as an alternative (in addition to) the sad lion.

Is Jam Your Jam? Help Us Get a Jam Emoji!
It has come to my attention that there isn't a jam or jelly emoji. For some reason, I remember using this emoji in the past. It would be very useful to have such an emoji. A strawberry jam emoji would make the world an all-around happier environment for everyone. This emoji will be able to add so much emotion to any conversation. Have you ever send a text to one of your friends and wanted to add a strawberry jam emoji, but you were unable to find one? Have you ever been texting your grocery list in emojis to a family member and wanted to add strawberry jam, but then you didn't get any because there wasn't an emojj? If you have, then we are in the same situation. Strawberry jam is also very beneficial to everyone's mental health. Most people enjoy toast, right? But what makes toast better? Jam, of course! You can't have a peanut butter and jam sandwich without jam, can you? Of course not. Our keyboards need strawberry jam like this petition needs you, desperately. How else will we share the wonders that strawberry jam does for our mood with our loved ones? Why don't we take this a step further and make all the jams! Perhaps you don't like strawberry? No problem, we have blackberry jam, too! Oh, you're allergic to blackberries? Lucky for you, we have orange jam, as well! You're not a fan of sweet jams? We made pepper jelly just for you! Imagine the diversity in taste that we can express with jam emojis. Who needs face emojis when you could use jams and jellies instead? I'm in a blueberry mood today, how about you? How are we supposed to properly express our fruitalicious feelings without jams?!
Petition to Apple
I started this petition because I feel that through these troubling times there are men and women risking everything for us and we need to thank them for it. This simple emoji can just be one act of thanks for these folks that fight for us. I hope that you all feel the same and want to thank our soldiers. Let’s get this emoji created!

Add Progress LGBTQ Pride Flag to all Emoji Banks
I want Unicode, Apple, Google, and Microsoft to add the Progress LGBTQ Pride Flag Emoji to all the Emoji banks because we have the Rainbow flag and the Transgender emojis on the list already. We need to add the Progress LGBTQ Pride flag because it would be more inclusive.
