Separate the emoticons function from MediaWikiChat and WikiForum into its own extension
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Separating the emoticons would help, as it could be made so that it would work on other places of the wiki. It could be used in Comments, WikiForum, inside a blog (via the BlogPage extension), talk pages, user pages, etc. It'd also have to require including a config which would accept a array of whitelisted namespaces.

Sounds like a good idea

I may be wrong but I thought WikiForum had its own emoticon functionality already?

@georgebarnick It does, but according to the documentation on https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:WikiForum#Configuration, the text follows as:

$wgWikiForumSmilies - Array of emoticon text forms => image file names. This configuration variable will be removed in the future and replaced with a better system for configuring emoticons. Do not rely on it.

@ashley can provide more information on this.
