When will Quora support emojis?

If you’ve ever tried to type Gothic or Linear B in Quora, you’ll know that it’s not just emoji that the Quora editor does not support; it’s anything beyond Plane 0 Unicode.

(For an added bonus, the 300 character limit turns out to be 300 bytes: The two Gothic sentences above blew up the 300 character limit.)

It’s felicitous for Quora that they don’t support emojis. But don’t underestimate the technical debt of Quora “Product” “Management”.

EDIT: as Uri Granta has discovered, Plane 1 (including emoji) work in comments, but not the question editor.
