Re here: https://emojipedia.org/folded-hands/
Can we please get a praying hands / folded hands reaction? 🙏🙏🙏🙏
It just seems like a respectful way of saying "thank you", or "I appreciate it"
Thumbsup sometimes doesn't fit. Seems too utilitarian and dismissive. But it's often used to express gratitude. I think it possible it falls short.
In some cultures the thumbsup gesture is actually rude. And in "Western anglo" culture, a thumbsup can be rude depending on context.
But the GitHub thumbs up reaction is meant to be a "thanks" or "I agree". I think it works for "I agree", but not great for "thanks".
I don't think "heart" covers the thanks use-case because not everyone wants to associate a very strong love emotion with a simple and grateful "thanks".
In short, heart and thumbs up are overloaded and certainly have their places. This is not a suggestion to remove any reaction, just to add one that fits for "Hey, thank you, I really appreciate that."
Could help to make OSS even more good 👍
