✌️ Strange emoji behaviour

When I'm using an emoji in a discussion title, the name is empty after creating the new discussion. Is this a bug in Vanillaforums?

Update: Ok, it seems to work on this site so it has something to do with my setup. Any advice on how to fix this? Should this work out of the box or do I need a plugin?

    Its most probably the database encoding. It should be utf8mb4

    I have the same issue running my MySQL DB under utf8mb4_unicode_ci.

    It might erelated to Vanilla 2.3.

    It only happens when the first character of the title is an EMoji, it's fine when the Emoji is inserted after text has been added.
