List of emoji shortcuts

Is there someplace that you list the text shortcuts for the various emojis?
For example, :point_up: in your text will be replaced with the "finger pointing up" emoji, and :+1: will be replace with the "thumbs up" emoji.
Where is a list of these shortcuts? I don't want to have to click and scroll to find the emoji I want - I'd rather just type ":thumbsup:" or something (which used to work in the old client, BTW). But, I can't find the list of shortcuts!

Additionally, there seems to be some conflicting code around entering emojis with shortcuts. It seems there are two ways - using the "word surrounded by colons", and using the "punctuation" method made popular on mobile devices.
For example, I can enter a smiley face by typing ":)" or ":-)" in my text, which is common on mobile devices. Or, I can use the "RC way" of doing it by typing ":smile:".
However, these two methods seem to battle with each other sometimes. For example, to enter a "face with tongue sticking out" using the first method, I would type ":-P" in my text. However, when I type that in, as soon as I type the "P", RC thinks I'm trying to enter an emoji using the "RC" (colons) way of doing it, and pops up with a helpful list of emojis that start with ":p", like ":person_with_pouting_face:". With the old RC client, if I typed ":-P" and hit enter quickly enough, it would get replace with the "tongue sticking out" emoji, but with the new "unified" client, it is replaced with the "person with pouting face" emoji - a MUCH DIFFERENT emotion!

This really needs to get cleaned up if RC is going to be a viable chat client. Your competition has a much more polished interface and feature set, and you seem to be taking steps backwards with the new unified client, instead of making things better! :-(
