I've requested for an invite. How long does it takes to receive one?

Usually less than a week but it also depends on the number of requests we had. It might be a little longer.

How can I know how many times my posts have been viewed?

Currently we do not disclose view count to users.

How Catmoji grabs pictures and/or videos from a link?

This was done automagically using Embedly. Without Embedly, our catnicians will not enjoy their nap time as they do now.

Why some pictures or videos didn't show up on the share form?

There might be several reasons. One of the reasons is that the picture's size is smaller that 200px width.

Can I watermark a picture shared through a link?

No. You can only add watermark to pictures you upload from your computer.

What can I do with my Catokens?

Nothing at the moment. But you will be able to "spend" your hard earned catokens in the future. If you have suggestions, feel free to email us.

Can I remove my "Expression" on a post?

No. Once you have expressed your "Expression" on a post, you can only change it by selecting the preferred Emoji.

Guidelines

These guidelines are in place to make this community a better place for all. Plus, helping you to be a catsome user on Catmoji. So, please keep in mind the dos and don'ts.

Do share cats and cat-related content only

Catmoji is all about cats. So share anything about cats, and cats only. Non related content will be removed without notice and the user might be banned.

Avoid vandalism

Put effort in captioning your cat pictures and videos. It is inappropriate to submit captions and comments that lack of content.

Do give credit where credit is due

It's not that hard at all. When sharing, just use the original link/source that contains the content that you want to share. Also, when uploading, please don't watermark pictures that are not yours.

Do behave and respect others

This is a community for all of us. So, always be good, be polite and respect other Catmoji members. Remember, you earn respect by respecting others.

Do enjoy and have fun

Catmoji's mission is to make the Internet a better and happier place with cats. This wouldn't be achieved if you are not having fun and enjoying yourself. So go and have fun!

Don't spam

At Catmoji, we focus on quality over quantity and certainly we do not tolerate spam. Nobody likes spammers anyway. So please don't try to spam or else you will be banned.

Don't beg for likes, reshares, comments, etc.

Having more likes, reshares, comments or followers make you more catsome but earning those from begging others is a no-no. Share great stuff and those will come.

Don't share anything illegal
