So I'd like to run an emoticon contest. I think we could use a few more for the shoutbox. So here's the deal: You have two ways to enter an emoticon. You can scour the web and find them or you can make them. A third alternative, if you don't have the means to make one but have a great idea is to post your idea and one fo the many graphic designers on here can iconify it. I will allow both animated and static entries, but in the end, I will probably only choose one animated total since the extra resources for animation can slow down the shoutbox if used in excess. So: Post your emoticons here in this thread. Post only one in each entry. I'll let this go for a while as long as we have interest. Then, people need to use the 'like' feature on each post to thin down the pool. We'll also weed out any that won't work for logistical and/or distasteful reasons. Once we get the short list, I'll make another thread with a poll and everyone can vote for his or her favorites.
