Wow, these look really nice.

Is there any chance that I could use these on another forum? They're really slick.

Wouldn't it be up to the people who made the smileys? =)

4) dont expect credit to be given whenever somebody posts a smiley once integrated.  By posting these here, you are allowing pixelopolis to do with as they please with your piece.
Pixelopolis thus owns the piece. Therefore it would be up to the mods.

Mm, pixelopolis is allowed to do with the piece as they please, but that agreement doesn't say anything about taking away the rights of the artist  :)

I think what's being said, though, is that we're all members of the community here, freely giving our work to be used as part of the community, thus handing over 'ownership' to the mods. the smilies are, I think, meant to give the board more of a comfortable, unique (for lack of a better word) feeling. Like, they're something unique that the members contributed, and as such the boards become more personalized, more like a, well, community. So yeah, it's up to the mods, cause we gave up out work to them. No one took our rights, we gave up our pieces willingly.

Didn't mean that to sound as ranty as it might come off. Just voicing my thoughts on the matter. I'd say, though, if you want custom smilies for your boards, I'd, like, ask around, see if any of the members can contribute anything. That way you'd have a more unique site anyway. :)

Btw, i am at it implementing stuff, i just am very busy atm so it might take a while longer before they are up and running.
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

That makes good sense, Tremulant  :)  I will honor the desire for distinction, and actually make some smileys of my own instead of leeching ;)

this activity is now closed as of the 30th.  The mods will now discuss which smilies will be implimented into the forum.  New smiley rounds will be held every so often (most likely bi-annually) which consists of 2 seperate events each.

event 1:
anybody can submit a smiley in their own style within the designated time limit.  At the end of that time, the community will vote on which style they will use for event 2

event 2:
much like we have done here, people then submit all of the different emoticons in that designated style for use in the forum.  you would then have the option to choose which smiley set you'd like to use on the forum as we gain more and more collections of them. (much like choosing a skin for the forum)

more details will come in future months. for now, great work everybody with the smilies! they all look great.  I wish i could have contributed more myself, but i'm actually out of town on vacation right now.  these things will hopefully be implimented soon.
