KITTY!!! That's MY pot pie!
« Reply #25 on: March 02, 2003, 07:15:51 am »
Considering we have so many users wanting to do emoticons for the board and only so many emoticons I can sanely add to it, I'm going to have to put my footpaw down here. '<img'>
 
I only want ONE set of canine emoticons and I want them to fit the scheme of the feline emoticons already in place. This means the size and expressions have to be pretty much the same.
If we end up getting more than one set submitted for these emoticons, we (Kada, WS, and/or myself) will choose the most appropriate set.

To post emotions set for review e-mail them to benjamin@furtopia.org and to kada-ru@kcff.net .  The emoticons will then be posted for staff review.  We will then hold a staff vote on what to add to the board.  Good luck! '<img'>

I have a question about these emoticons. Can they be rotated say, every 3-6 months? I don't know how to create them otherwise I would also be trying to create horsey ones!  '<img'>

But, this way, all the ones that are submitted by others can also be used in a rotational manner?

The first 3 months we have the fabulous kitties. Then the next set for the next 3 months and so on.

Good idea Kada-Ru,

I think that would work very well.

Or maybe letting the user chouse there set from the menu.
I am not sure how this board is set up..

Benjamin, what options do we have for this ?

Personaly I'd like to see a set of each available.  Not zillions but the feline/canine/dragon one set of each all useable all useable.  Benjamin knows how much work would be at stake applying these and could let us know more.  As to what could be chosen staff could vote.

My opinion into the pot. '<img'>

I think there's a few ways it could be done. I want to avoid cluttering the clickable smilies box too much, but the excess can go into the emoticon help card so that they're at least usable. I just don't want the system piled up with a huge amount of emoticons and would rather see some consistency between the sets so that it all looks good together.
The staff will review Chaz' emoticons once they're submitted, and if we like them, we'll use them. After that, getting some dragons could be cool, too.

And as WhiteShepherd stated before, ANYONE that wants to submit some ideas for the emoticons is welcome to and the staff will look at ALL submissions. (Now, I just wish I knew how to create horsey ones!'<img'>

How about putting an option in the user's personal profile section (where we set our birthday and avatar pic) that lets us choose which set we want to use. That way the 'enter your post' page doesn't have to get cluttered with more than one set, it would just reflect the user's choice made in the personal profile.  ':p'

That's a lot more easily said than done, really.
It's an interesting idea, though.
I'll try and suggest that over at the board where the iB script hackers mostly reside. It could be an interesting feature if it's at all possible to do.

@Benjamin, how difficult would it be to do the rotation thing if Sumarra's idea isn't plausible? I like hers. Like the emoticon box is hidden but available. hmmms.... I mean what about a box that has ONE of each, one cat, one dog, one horse, one dragon etc., and the user can click on the one they like and it brings up the box with those emoticons. Then they can choose from their fave animal. Is that pausible?

I'm thinking more along the lines of letting them choose which set they want to have shown in the clickable smilies box by an option they can set in their user control panel.
A hacker friend of mine likes the idea, but we'll see what they can come up with. I'd rather keep the system as simple as possible in order to avoid as much user confusion as possible. '<img'>

Ok. Well, that is how one improves on anything, suggestions not thought of before and then trying to implement them to see if it can be done. (giggles)

Yes, simple is best.

Benjamin   CPRs an old topic! "Clear!" *bzzzt!*

Thanks to some work by Vararam, we have a few more kitty smilies in our emoticon line-up. One of them has been added to the clickable smilies box, and we have a few other amusing ones added in to the general emoticons listing.
Here they are...
 
':?:' You talkin' to me? Are you talking to me?
 
':joke:' I'm kidding! Really, I am!
 
':lightning:' I think I just wet myself...
 
':jail:' Here's me... in the bad fur box again...
 
Thanks, Vararam! '<img'>

I was really just playing around with them. This: ':?:'  was the only one I really intended to have added here. As for the others..

'<img'> + eyes from ':.' = ':joke:'

':.' + lightning in the back = ':lightning:'

':cry:' + bars = ':jail:'

So now everyone can use them. '<img'>  Say Benjamin, do you care if I make more?

Be my guest, Vararam. There're some pretty crazy emoticons on some of the other BBSs that I've seen. Would be fun to have some weird ones in furry themes. '<img'>

These icons are just gif files. It you have a program that can edit those then you can make them (photoshop for example). These don't even have a tranparent background. I could make some like that though. In fact, that wouldn't be hard at all. I made these with a black background because that's what the other ones have.

Quote
':lightning:' ':.' ':.'  Notice these have a black background. (You may have to look closely at the last two, but they do have a black background. Also, you my not be able to tell if your screen is very dark.)

By the way, I've set up the emoticons so that their backgrounds are invisible. Thanks for the heads up on that. I forgot that the quote boxes are slightly grey, since my monitor's a bit dark. '<img'>
