Emoticon Awards Voting - Extended:iconupdatedsignplz: At the request of several people, and to allow as many people the opportunity as possible, we have decided to extend the voting period for one week. The new voting deadline is March 14, 2013.
Kindly note there was also some questions as to some of the deviants listed in the newcomer category and the fact that their first emote was created in late 2012. Due to the fact that the Emote Awards had an erratic timeframe before now (an uncertain date from December to December), we allowed those additional 2 nominations as they would have been in a window where they would have been excluded. Now that we have moved to a Jan 1 - Dec 31 timeframe, that should not be a problem in the future.
We'd like to welcome everyone to the 2012 Emote Awards.
First of all, we would like to thank everyone who took the time to make nominations. We were staggered at the number of people who participated! Now, before w
Chat event venue movedKristen and I were due to host a emote themed chat event in the #Seniors chatroom this weekend as part of the Seniors Chat Event Week. However, we have just been informed that the chat event week has now been cancelled and whilst we can use the chatroom for our event, we won't have the same level of access as anticipated.
Therefore, we are moving the chat event back into #WeEmote. All other details are will stay the same, and we have no intention to change our plans because of the move.
We still aim to include:
A emote themed trivia session
Non-digital emote challenge
Pixel emote challenge
Thanks to some very generous donations we have some amazing prizes on offer including quite a few and some awesome art requests. So don't forget, the event is now on:
Saturday, 23rd Feb @ 9PM GMT (4PM EST) in the #WeEmote chatroom
Please help spread the word to ensure everyone knows of the change of venue. Thank you and hope to see you

Saturday, February 23rd, at 9PM GMT (4PM EST)
After a month-long break from chat events (the double chat event took a lot out of us, we needed some time to rest up), `Synfull and I got together to organize a chat event for February!
We tried extra-special-hard this time to make our chat events as open to everyone as possible--both people who have little to no knowledge of emoticons and those who are experienced in them. If you would like to donate any prizes to the cause, post here: http://synfull.deviantart.com/journal/poll/3489926/ Any pimpage towards the event (in poll, via tweet, in journal, or whatever) would be very greatly appreciated. Thank you all, and see you Saturday!
Edit: The chat event is moving back to :#weemote: chat room instead of in the :#seniors: chat room. We hope to see you there!
Minor Edit: Some events at :#seniors: have been put back up! We will remain at :#weemote: (to avoid further conf
