Custom Statuses: Prevent Animations on Custom Status Emojis

Description

In an effort to reduce distraction in the channel sidebar, we should prevent custom status emojis from animating.

In the following locations, animated emojis display as static emojis and the animation plays when hovered over in the tooltip:

  • Channel Sidebar

  • In-Channel or DM

In the following locations, animated emojis display animated:

  • tooltips for custom statuses - when hovering any custom status, the emoji shows as animated within the tooltip

  • Profile cards - display as animated without any hover

  • Status menu - displays animated without any hover

  • Custom Status Modal - displays animated without any hover

Ideally users would also have a setting to disable custom status emoji animation everywhere for themselves.
