Greetings!

There are some changes to the Emoticon Gallery structure that I'm excited to announce.  Months ago Synfull suggested this layout:

Category conceptsThis is my set of category concepts for Moonbeam13. They were inspired by BlissfullySarcastic. Feel free to ignore. Its on this account to not detract fom the explanation on my Synfull one
:bulletred: Emoticons
:bulletyellow: Chat friendly
:bulletgreen: Small - up to 25x50
:bulletblue: Static
:bulletblue: Animated
:bulletgreen: Medium - up to 50x50
:bulletblue: Static
:bulletblue: Animated
:bulletgreen: Large - up to 150x150
:bulletblue: Static
[Bullet; Blue] Animated

[Bullet; Yellow] Visual purpose
[Bullet; Yellow] Packs
[Bullet; Yellow] Projects
[Bullet; Green] Bases
[Bullet; Green] entries
[Bullet; Yellow] Misc


and the response from the community has been entirely in favor of this structural change!

While I have made most of the changes the category currently looks like this:

:bulletred: Emoticons
            :bulletyellow: Chat Friendly
                     :bulletgreen: Animated
                     :bulletgreen: Large - up to 150x150
                     :bulletgreen: Medium - up to 50x50
                           :bulletblue: Static
                           :bulletblue: Animated
                     :bulletgreen: Small - up to 25x50
                           :bulletblue: Static
                           :bulletblue: Animated
                      :bulletgreen: Static

Not completely there! :( but the reason for this is because there were existing Animated and Static categories under Chat-Friendly where many of you have uploaded your emoticons to.  So what does that mean? I'm glad you asked! The floating Animated and Static categories will become sub-categories of Large - up to 150 x150.  I appreciate this isn't the ultimate solution as not everyone is going to want to classify their emoticons as Large, unfortunately I'm unable to give individual attention to each deviation so this is going to need to be a team effort!

If you have emoticons that are in chat friendly emotes -> animated category or chat friend emotes -> static you may want to move your emotes to a more suitable category if you don't want them to live in the "Large" category. 

Otherwise, if you are fine with them living there you need do nothing at all! This change will happen automatically once Devious Technology has completed the move of the categories :)

Thank you to Synfull for an awesome suggestion and the community for the overwhelming support of it, it made this decision easy to make :)

Since it says up to 150x150 in large, what about bigger than that?

Bigger than that should probably be placed in pixel art or something :) It's not really emote sized and chat friendly if it's bigger than that. 150 x 150 is pushing it as it is :)

so will the old icons be automatically moved to these categories or whats going on there?

Only the emotes that lived in chat friendly emotes -> animated category or chat friend emotes -> static were automatically moved into the "Large" category. Everything else will need to be moved manually by the artists as they see fit :)

:grump: i had a bunch of chat friendlys that were much smaller then that :stare:

Well FINAL- LY!
The previous emoticon gallery was a mess. It's a good thing you've finally organised it so now they're much easier to find. :)

I still find some difficulties in understanding this .If I have an emote that is 40x75 or 100x40 where should I put them ?
Reply
:iconmoonbeam13:
Moonbeam13 Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
I would base that on the largest side so both would be under 'large'

that was when they removed some other categorys that they added last year. this change is related but all of the emotes where moved to another category (or probably a categorys name was changed and moved around) and they gave no notice of such.

I just have one question, are these categories now blocked from everything that is bigger than the given sizes? For example if you want to submit an Emote to "Small - up to 25x50" but your emote is bigger than that, will you get an error message that it hasn't the required size?

no that sort of code is very complicated we need people to pay attention this is going to have to be a group effort right now I'll work on trying to hard code something but it won't be immediate.

Seems bad and confusing to me especially because there's an animated and static sub category straight away, then the categories based on sizes. Her suggestion eliminated those and everything is based on size only.

Not to mention that having a category for up to 150x150 doesn't seem very 'chat-friendly' to me... :B

:iconmoonbeam13:
Moonbeam13 Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
the animated and static options right aware are being moved to the Large category they are only there temporarily
Reply
:iconprosaix:
prosaix Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2012
Ok :o

But are emotes that go up to that size really 'chat friendly'? Why not have a different category for the biggies/fatties instead of a sub category in the chat friendly emote one?

It'll take some time for the browser cache to update what emote are you looking at?

Well I'm not a very experienced emoticonist so I can't quite give a very valid opinion on the matter, but looking at the categorization in the submission process it does look coherent and well structured to me :) so good job! I hope everyone will be pleased with this change!
