There's your problem right at the top of the source code of every page on Mudcat: it still uses ISO-8859-1 (a.k.a.Latin-1) which is a limited character set. For emojis and all other known characters to work it needs to be UTF-8, which is now default on most web sites, but unfortunately Mudcat has a HUGE backlog of stuff posted using ISO-8859-1 which would break horribly if a simple global change were made.
