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 :)

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 :)
