Emoticonists on dA (14)

Tue Feb 28, 2012, 6:45 AM
:iconkrissi001:
 
   I asked in a previous Journal that every Emoticonist should write a comment there.  
I sent notes to all of those who commented there and asked them a couple of questions.  
And now I am going to feature all of this deviants and their answers :dummy:
 If you saw that I have featured you and i didn't include all of your answers/or any answers, you could write a Journal and include all of your answers there. ;D 


What is your first reaction when you find a new Emoticonist? 
My first reaction when i find a new emoticonist? Pride in the community for pulling another one in :giggle: and then i watch them


Pick 5 of your most favourite Emoticonists and describe why they are special to you, what makes them stand out from the others?  
5 emoticonists? hummmm...
Gotta be Lushbob as one. I mean, he was the reason I got into emoting 'n' all that, plus a really great friend who's helped out so much and always been there. Not QUITE sure why he still listens to me.. :shrug:

CookiemagiK Is there really much else to say?

Ricsmond he kinda new to the trade but.. Wow, he can animate like a beast, and an all round nice guy.

otohime I have many :heart:'s for this gal, I mean, she's reheally nice and an awsome, emoticonist/animator/pixeller 'n' all.

Indae I mean, what an awesome.


  Is there anything that you want to say to the whole Emoticon community? 
Hey y'all. How ya doin?


How could we strengthen the connection within the Emoticon community?
should like... do some supercollabs that involve ALL THE EMOTICONISTS :iconallthethingsplz:


  What kind of things do you want to see less / more in the Emoticon Gallery?  (miscats excluded :stare:)
Just MOAR EMOTES. no less.


Do you have any words of encouragement for the next Emoticon Community Volunteer? Anything that, you think that, could be important for the next CV?
you're quite good-looking :iconheeplz:

What is your first reaction when you find a new Emoticonist? 
I check out their gallery and more often than not follow them.


Pick 5 of your most favourite Emoticonists and describe why they are special to you, what makes them stand out from the others?  
This one is really hard to answer since I'm new and have been going through the galleries of so many amazing Emoticonists lately and everyone has been so great. So no favorites for me yet, I just love the overall community :D


  Is there anything that you want to say to the whole Emoticon community? 
Thanks for such a warm welcome :hug:


How could we strengthen the connection within the Emoticon community?
I love all the different projects and they way they bring the community together.

More random acts of kindness. Don't wait for a project to show appreciation for your favorite Emoticonist, just creating something for them out of the blue.


  What kind of things do you want to see less / more in the Emoticon Gallery?  (miscats excluded :stare:)
I'd love to see more elaborate emote pieces with pixeled backgrounds. As for what I would like to see less of, nothing really (still baring miscats because they are out of control), I pretty much love everything I see lol.

I'm sure you're going to do a great job, just focus on keeping the community active.
 
 
  If you are new to the Emoticon community:  Do you feel welcomed?  What could be done to make new emoticonists feel welcomed?
I have felt extremely welcome in my first month in the community. In fact, it already feels like I've been a part of it for some time. In most communities, newbies feel like outsiders for a while but here I felt like a part of things immediately.

What is your first reaction when you find a new Emoticonist? 
'Oh hai'


Pick 5 of your most favourite Emoticonists and describe why they are special to you, what makes them stand out from the others?  
  wisekidk was very talented and made amazing stuff (And was a fellow GIMP user!), shame she left.
ROBlNHOOD was also very talented and... I'm repeating myself.
Steph1254 is always nice to everyone.
Cmotes was very talented and made very good emotes and was amazing etc...
Krissi001 is perhaps the most dedicated to the community emoticonist I have ever seen.


  Is there anything that you want to say to the whole Emoticon community? 
Buy my prints Get yourselves in #WeEmote and meet people! When I was new #WeEmote was awesome, but it died. It's god a new lease of life recently and I want it to raise from the ashes.


How could we strengthen the connection within the Emoticon community?
Get in #WeEmote and talk. Talk outside of there too. TALK DAMMIT. (I admit I'm not a good role model for the whole talking thing)


  What kind of things do you want to see less / more in the Emoticon Gallery?  (miscats excluded :stare:)
Miscats... Uhhm. Idk. Emotes I guess.


Do you have any words of encouragement for the next Emoticon Community Volunteer? Anything that, you think that, could be important for the next CV?
Uhhhm. Do well. I guess. :shifty:
 

  What did you like and what didn't you like in the time when I was the Community Volunteer?
Didn't like the miscats but I never did anyway Uhm. I'mma be opinionless. :paranoid:


If you haven't been really active in the community, what could be done that you get more active again? 
:shrug: I just lost motivation for making emotes. I don't know what'd give me that motivation back.
 

  If you are new to the Emoticon community:  Do you feel welcomed?  What could be done to make new emoticonists feel welcomed?
A new emoticonist wants to be well known. The fit in with the 'popular' emoticonists. When I was new I saw the popular emoticonists and wanted to be like them, as good as them. Pageviews and +favs are nice but comments in particular are special.

What is your first reaction when you find a new Emoticonist? 
I add them to my watchlist. :dummy:


  Is there anything that you want to say to the whole Emoticon community? 
Don't let anybody tell you that you aren't awesome, because all of you are fucking awesome. :heart:
And create more Emotes. :iconanimefaceplz:
And If you have a twitter account you should follow #dAemotes, most of the Emoticon related things will get featured there :paranoid:

Oh and if you find an awesome Emote (that is DD worthy in your eyes)  don't be afraid to suggest it to the next Emoticon CV, he/she will appreciate it! But make sure that the deviant didn't receive a DD within the last 6 months ;D  

If you have problems with the personality or the attitude of somebody, don't let it influence your view on their art and their support for the community!  Support their efforts in the community, it is your community after all and everybody who tries to keep the community alive has to get the support of all Emoticonists, even if you might don't like them. :pat:   Ignore what happened in the past and concentrate on what you love.


How could we strengthen the connection within the Emoticon community?
We should feature each other more!  And I don't just mean to feature Emoticons, I mean Contests /Projects /news Articles.  There will be always deviants/Emoticonists who don't watch all of the Emoticonists and they will miss those Events if they are watching Emoticonists who don't feature those things. :nuu:  


  What kind of things do you want to see less / more in the Emoticon Gallery?  (miscats excluded :stare:)
I want to see less EC/OC related Emoticons :shifty:    I want to see more complex Emoticons, not just those with backgrounds but those with tons of frames. :giggle: 


Do you have any words of encouragement for the next Emoticon Community Volunteer? Anything that, you think that, could be important for the next CV?
You are awesome :heart:
Don't feel obligated to feature something just because tons of people suggested it, just feature it if you are 100% sure that it's an awesome piece.
And if you feature something that has been suggested by many deviants, don't feel obligated to put all of the deviants in the description. Just send a note to the deviant who received the DD and tell him/her who suggested it and what they have written.  

and good luck and have fun. ;D
 

  What did you like and what didn't you like in the time when I was the Community Volunteer?
I didn't like that I separated myself from the Community, it feels like that I was closer to the community before I was a CV. But that's probably because of  the tons of new Emoticonists that appeared within the last 15 months, I just hadn't the time to talk to them.   And maybe I didn't want to look like that I would just feature my friends xD.
I should have written more Comments/Critiques in my time as Volunteer, that could have helped to get closer to the Community. :giggle:

Love your icon, BTW. Never gets old- I continually laugh my face off. :giggle: <-inaccurate representation :stare:

Okay, I think this is appropriately novel-esque now. :thumbsup:
