smilies anyone?
 
I don't like the smilies we currently have. Can we like add cuter or more graphic Smilies later once everything is settle?

Cthulhu 12/17/2008 10:05 AM

Re: smilies anyone?
 
Sure, updating smilies is either a matter of installing a new smilie pack, or manually updating 'em one by one. If anyone has a smilie set he/she would like to see done, lemme know.

I'm not sure if we'd be allowed to use the old ACF smilies btw.

Naw, just remembering some dhrama where a disgruntled staff member from ACF left and demanded the smilies she (I think it was a she) made were taken off the site, threatening with copyright an' shit.

Re: smilies anyone?
 
Well, are there any guidelines to follow? Such as, do you want them all to be a certain color?

Cthulhu 12/18/2008 06:50 PM

Re: smilies anyone?
 
Would be neat if they'd all be in the same style and didn't jump out of the main theme's color scheme (i.e. bright yellow ones). The colors for ye olde AC smilies worked.

Also, they shouldn't be too large on average, the current ones are on the small side so they could be a bit larger.

I really dislike the character smiles, maybe if they were a bit bigger than what ACF had them.

Cthulhu 12/18/2008 09:47 PM

Re: smilies anyone?
 
I remember those, they were pretty tiny though. I'd go for the plushie-sized ones, but I think they're too large - cookie monster's about the largest I'd go, and I'm referring to the smallest variant of that one :monster:.

Since the smilies discussed here will / should probably be used right in between posts, having oversized ones would break up the posts like :monster: already does, not to speak of the big variant of that. Although that one's mainly there for the lulz.

Tennyo 12/19/2008 01:09 AM

Re: smilies anyone?
 
I'm not sure how I feel about yellow smileys. I think we should try to make them one of the colors that are in the site banner.

Also, it might be good to make a small emote sized Cookie Monster like what ACF had.

Maybe the size of this one: http://tennyomelime.deviantart.com/a...Hands-91178974 Just not pink unless we have couples. lol

OneWingedDemon 12/19/2008 05:28 AM

Re: smilies anyone?
 
Some variation of blue?
I think even if they're not the same color, at least get them close enough. I think everyone is kind of in love with the cookie monster. That definitely stays. I keel you if you touch it.

Tennyo 12/19/2008 05:52 AM

Re: smilies anyone?
 
Well I figured we could make a smaller version of the Cookie Monster like what ACF had so that if fit better and didn't break up the posts.

Or maybe we could have both so people could choose?

Re: smilies anyone?
 
hmmm i made some for acf... maybe i could remake those for here, and some new ones. I'll try to put together a base later. Kinda light turquois, lifestream coloured.

Cthulhu 01/03/2009 12:33 PM

Re: smilies anyone?
 
That would be awesome slash epic.

Pixel 01/04/2009 02:02 AM

Re: smilies anyone?
 
I really liked the style of the acf ones, so ended up with something similar *coughcompletelyrippedoffthestylecough* :monster:

http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y27.../TLS_blank.gifhttp://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y27.../TLS_smile.gif

I'll get to work on them if you're happy with the style

Tennyo 01/04/2009 02:36 AM

Re: smilies anyone?
 
I think they're cute. Might need a tiny bit more gradient, though. And I prefer wider mouths and shorter eyes.

We could always do pink: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...nnyomelime.gif

lol Kidding. :)

Cthulhu 01/04/2009 04:20 PM

Re: smilies anyone?
 
Looks fine to me, although I don't really care since I believe the only smilie anyone will ever need is :monster:.

That and :duhard:.

Tennyo 01/04/2009 09:33 PM

Re: smilies anyone?
 
Yeah I really don't know what I was thinking. I was thinking more contrast in the gradient but when I tried it myself it just didn't look right.

Also we need more than that! We need a glomp and a hug emote as well!

Cthulhu 01/04/2009 09:58 PM

Re: smilies anyone?
 
:massivemonster: and :duuuhard:, period.

Note to self: Replace massive monster smilie with one who fits the post thingy pervfectly.

I dunno, lol ¯\(°_o)/¯. But the entire thing is 800 pixels wide, minus 16% (?) for the post bit, minus some extra pixels for margins and whatnot. I think you'd be able to get an exact measurement using Firefox and the Web Developer extension.

That's also my favorite. Very great job, Pixel. You're talent astounds me. :monster:

And if anyone cares I used the base to make a paranoid one: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...aranoid001.gif

Wow, I never noticed the white spots! I will have to clean those up!

:monster: still > any of those, no offense intended :monster:.

If / when a full smilie set is made, I can add it, fgj. Just add your desired smilie name (i.e. : monster: ) fgj.

Or, you know, print screen -> Photoshop -> measure.

Pixel, what program do you use to create animated gifs? I used to use Paint Shop Pro because it had a fairly simple frame-by-frame GUI, but Photoshop's system (with only being able to move and/or hide layers and whatnot) just baffles me and I find myself unable to actually save more than one frame.

I started to make a package of Vincent emoticons a while back, when I had very short-lived plans of putting a forum on my own website. I would not mind donating them to the cause. http://img378.imageshack.us/img378/1848/76510669oe0.gif

In fact, attached. :monster: Do with them what you will.

I made a few for ACF's Ghost Past.... none of them were of any real use other than my buttsex smilie which I love. :3 But I recall something being wrong with the buttsex smilie, but can't remember now... :/

Pixel, have a look. Maybe you'll want to redux them with your fancy new colour because I cba right now. Maybe I will later if you cba or don't care. :monster:

I approve of these smileys, and we also need several more depicting a broad range of sarcasm. I love the cookie monster and all, but I'm getting a little sick of his large blue face trying to STEAL MY FUCKING COOKIE.

I didn't want to make a new topic, but Neoseeker have used the old ACF plushies on their forum. I'm not sure if Pixel cares about that, but I thought I'd bring it up anyway.
