For HipChat Cloud, Admins cannot remove Global emoticons (the ones that come with HipChat) but these emoticons do change from time to time and if you have feedback about any of them, please feel free to reach out to the support team. HipChat admins do have control over the custom emoticons used within your own team though. As for user avatars - yes, admins can change or remove user avatars. Hope that helps.

Hi Charles,

If you are on HipChat Server (the self hosted version), you can remove global emoticons by following the instructions here. As for avatars, that feature is not available at the moment (feelsbadman). I would recommend filing it as a suggestion though.

Hope it helps!

Hi and thanks!  Is there a way to block them if we are on the cloud version?

No sorry, that only applies for the hosted version of HipChat.
