Welcome to the Emoticon Gallery! :wave: - NaNoEmo by a-kid-at-heart

For years, many emoticonists on dA have been suggesting,trying,working,petitioning,polling and writing journals to get dA to organize the Emoticon Gallery in a simple and effective manner. While miscats such as photo packs have always been a nuisance, the implementation of Add Media has encouraged massive numbers of icon related works to flood our gallery. This makes finding emotes and the people who create them near impossible, and as a result the community which forms around those works is equally challenging to maintain.

Here you will find a simple gallery structure for you to submit or find emotes, and a friendly place to find emoticonists. :grouphug: by a-kid-at-heart

The rules here are simple:

Anyone can join :incognito: by a-kid-at-heart
Anyone can submit (emotes, obviously) :happy: by a-kid-at-heart
Submissions that do not fit the descriptions given for the folder it is placed in will be moved. If you are consistently careless we'll come after you... :irritated: by a-kid-at-heart relentlessly... it won't be pretty . :kinky: by a-kid-at-heart
Any questions asked or requests made in the comments below will be answered as quickly as possible Top Uses for a Tard - Stamp Licker by a-kid-at-heart
Any questions asked or requests made via notes will usually be answered quicker

This is your gallery, so feel free to offer suggestions or make requests and the Admin team will do what we can to improve things.

Does anyone here do custom emoticons?

What are you looking for?
1tiptip1 Featured By Owner May 5, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
I was looking for images of some emoticons showing cat owner issues.  Like messing with the keyboard and helping themselves to drinks.

Why did you decline my emotion? I believe I put it in the right folder-
a-kid-at-heart Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2017
Sorry, but we don't consider those emoticons. Shrug

Kinda sad this group is even needed, but I love the idea! What happened to the emoticon community, though? It seems to have died down to such small numbers, or is that just me? I've missed a lot, apparently.
Synfull Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2015
I think another factor was the fact the community was relying on around 5 active members to run all of the contests and the groups. When they were unable to devote as much time to dA (either by needing time off or needing to focus on offline life) no one else came forward to keep things going.

There were equally a couple of scenarios where a few people said some unkind things towards other members inside the community. It turned a people off making emotes to avoid the drama, and split the community apart. And as soon as the art started to dry up, the community just died off.

I think dA has also changed as a website. I am no longer passionate about the site and whilst I pop in daily, there's nothing here to keep me on the website for more than 5-10 mins. The groups platform is still unfinished and doesn't inspire me to keep working at it. The chats seem so unfriendly nowadays. There's few contests (because they receieve far less entries than they deserve) and I can count the number of recent projects on one hand.

Now it's just difficult to get anything moving. When people do try, they get no recognition or enthusiasm from the community, which is a real buzz-kill. You spend hours trying to start a new project, and get maybe 5 entries. That hardly inspires people to try. And as the community has dried up, very few people are joining. Without the newcomers, there's little new inspiration to pixel, as people aren't developing new themes, skills and techniques.

All in all, it's extremely sad to see a thriving community just about die out. But I've been hurt too many times in the past to want to put time and effort into getting things moving, and I think many people feel the same.

Very sad indeed. :(
