How to annoy hundreds of developers in all 50 states - Vermont bill would allow Emojis in license plates

This would be frustrating for grabbing plate numbers I would imagine

Nah.  The problem is there’s an implication it is supposed to replace numbers on the plates which is false.  It was just the local government spitballing images to put on new vanity plates and parts of two different articles both of which said that number changes were not happening, were conflated together to make it look like it wasn’t.  Then the political trolls jumped in to complain about a government even talking about vanity plates being cause to drag down state government and it all turned into a giant mess.  It’s a “nothing burger” I believe the term is.

As a developer…if you can't properly handle all characters in a typeset, learn to code.

 

As a normal person…WTF, can we just get rid of emoji from life yet?  They are so stupid!

IMO allowing vs handling is different. I could for example have a field that only accepts numbers, or one that only accepts A-Z in upper or lowercase (though other languages are available). After that, there are standards that do cover all possible configs AFIK... but probably best not being able to enter arbitrary character sets.

I work in law enforcement.  I have to run plates all the time.  This would make running any license plate for a vehicle pulled over (assuming they're from Vermont) become a bitch to do.  Main reason because at the moment, there's no way to input emojis on openfox or through our CAD system, as far as I'm aware.


Currently focusing on my video game collection.  Here's what I got so far.  

Keep in mind I'm still grabbing multiplatform games on PC, unless they happen to be cheaper on PS4 or Switch (such as RDR2 as of right now)

 

Currently Playing:  

  • God of War - PS4
  • Splatoon 2 - Switch
  • Super Mario Maker 2 - Switch
  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Switch

(will be reset at the beginning of each month)

Put on hold:

 

How many games I'm needing:

  • DS: 53
  • Wii: 40
  • 360/PS3: 84
  • 3DS: 60
  • Wii U: 7
  • PS Vita: 34
  • PS4: 20
  • Switch: 17

Still same problem:  they’re not number replacements.  That whole claim was BS.  They’re just vanity plate pics.  Parts of two different reports were stuck together to make it look like that was what was going on but it wasn’t.

"As most of us are former law enforcement or military, we see this as a major issue. What if we are trying to find a suspect that is considered highly dangerous and may be armed? If we are looking at a license plate from 20 feet away, and we can't tell what characters we are seeing, we may send other units on a wild goose chase for multiple vehicles. No, stick to numbers and letters. It is far easier to read and it is safer for everyone." - Project Overkill team

Wouldn’t that be exactly the same problem with ANY vanity plate?  Its just a vanity plate image.

 

It’s NOT part of the number system.  I keep saying that and people keep thinking it’s not that way because of the misleading intro.  A vanity plate should make it easier not harder.

 

you hear about misinformation?  This is what it is.

I think what they're trying to say is that it will distract from the critical info already on the plate. Vanity plates are fine, and sometimes are easier to read. But, having an image on the plate is a distraction.

You mean vanity numbers.  There are a couple kinds of vanity plates.  It’s possible I’m using the wrong term.  I’m referring to the plates that have images on them.4A05C45B-FFFB-4820-9D9C-2506592150F8.jpeg.b1ea543c818e1a73d43e4fa83526488f.jpeg057245DC-9C69-4F99-BB25-24F2B666AC99.jpeg.f762873db34408f8fbd777c76436358c.jpeg

instead of a falcon or a mountain lion there would be an emoji

law enforcement: oh no how am I going to tell the numbers apart when there's a smiley instead of a fucking ORANGE!!!

 

Naughty, explicit, racist: 2017’s rejected Florida license ...

 

It's only replacing the symbol that comes on the plate. For example, we have Manatees, state bird, state solar body that apparently no one else knows about (the sun), and some fruit that's quite a bitch for some to eat.

Im confused....why did they need to pass am additional law if the emoji is just a picture on the plate? They already have vanity plates. Wouldnt that cover an emoji?

Depends on how they do it.  Every picture might require a law for all I know.  I don’t know how the pictures are picked in vermont.  It’s real possible it would.

Summary:

A proposed bill in Vermont would allow 6 different emojis of 3,019 recognized in vanity plates. 

Pathetic!

I read somewhere Windows added support for naming servers with emoji's as well. Thank you but no!!! (mostly used in dev environments to my knowledge rather than live)

You can use them pretty much anywhere such as user names or passwords

Most states can't just add vanity plates. They go through an approval process for plates for internal additions (the DMV) and bills for external additions (i.e. the people's wants). You want dickbutt vanity plates? Put a bill to a vote and get it done. #TeamMystic

I don't even play Go, I just like the emblem.
