I see there is a prominent "amiga-tick" reaction available for messages. I loved my Amiga 2000 and the Amiga community. What does it mean when you use the amiga-tick reaction?

To me, amiga tick means exactly the same as šŸ° or šŸ‘ or āž• or šŸ’Æ or ā¤ļø or āœ… or āœ”ļø. It's just a way to signal a positive reaction. Choosing to use one or another in any given situation is a matter of personal taste and style.

Kartik's glossary: ā€¢ ā¤ļø: I love this, nice work. (Usually for demos.) ā€¢ šŸ’Æ: Absolutely agreed. (Usually in debates.) ā€¢ āœ”ļø: Done. (Usually in my work Slack.) ā€¢ šŸ‘šŸ¼: Acknowledgment. I like this, but not enough to throw you a ā¤ļø ā€¢ šŸ°: Ivan got here before me, and I couldn't work up the energy to find the right emoji.

Additionally: ā€¢ šŸ‘€ : I will take a look (or already did), and don't have anything more to say yet ā€¢ šŸ‘ or šŸŽ‰: I celebrate this, high-five, nicely done. ā€¢ šŸ˜‚ or šŸ˜­ or šŸ£: Damn, that sucks, sorry. (I use hatching chick for this whenever there's an element of naivety, a la f-around find out.) ā€¢ šŸ»: Thank you for doing that thing that I probably should have done. ā€¢ šŸ˜‘: I despise this but can't be arsed to dignify it with a powerful reaction. ā€¢ šŸ§µ: Hey, this is a cool thought, you should start a whole new thread about it. (Kudos to @Kartik Agaram for setting up this particular emoji+meaning. Also note that the šŸ§µ emoji used to have a different meaning ā€” hey, this top-level post is a reply to the top-level post above it, and you should use the threaded reply feature ā€” but I've personally decided that a quick DM is a better way to handle that situation)
