Okay guys so in response to another thread if you think there should be an emoticon on the board that we don't have you can use the blank I have provided below to fill in your own expression! Emoticons should be used to convey emotion or set the tone of a sentence (like the the sarcasm ^o) smiley on MSN/Live Messenger. You're all welcome to submit as many emoticons as you like but when it comes to graphic design I'm a right d**k so don't be offended if I don't upload your emoticon. On a similar note if two emoticons of the same type are submitted and one looks better than the other the better one will be chosen. Please submit the emoticons in .gif format and bear in mind that the gif format uses a boolean alpha channel, basically this means a pixel in the image is either transparent or it's opaque - no in-between. This means you might have to merge your layers to preserve anti-aliasing and then take out the white background colour (the background behind semi-transparent pixels should be white even though the forum post background colour for this template is blue). Also try employ anti-aliasing/shading techniques where necessary. tl;dr: Here's a blank emoticon: give it some feeling, if it doesn't fit in with the current emoticon set it won't get added. ____________ On a legal note please realise that by posting your emoticon on here you're releasing it in to the public domain for anyone to distribute/edit. If you intend to keep your work copyrighted don't submit it.
