Better Late than NaNano - VPNaNoEmoThe fun begins August 1st!!
Last year we ran a special NaNoEmo in June.  It was solely for Visual Purpose Emoticons. What does that mean? It means emoticons that are created to look at, not for use in chats or comments. Basically, pretty emoticon pictures. However, visual emotes can also include useful things like icons, stamps, etc. The key is that care is taken to create an emoticon "scene", usually with a detailed background.
I am gonna defer to the journal written last year by Synfull. It outlines what the challenge is about and how to participate. The good thing about VP NaNoEmo is that the goal is not one-a-day, but one-a-week, and smaller emote scenes (like avatars) count. So, get boned up, and if you're ready to participate, sign up.
Note that I know we're 2 months late, and notice of this is really last minute. My apologies. However, NaNo has always been a big motivator in the emoticon community and I hope it inspires a few old-timers, and newcomers, t
    A Wild Challenge Appears! - FINAL DAY!I'd like to propose a challenge to the emoticon community: a 256x256 "high definition" emoticon. What does it look like? What style is it? Is it pixellized? Vectorized? Drawn?
Entries to this challenge should be submitted to the Visual Purpose Gallery, and then will be collected here.
Due Date: September 1st, 2014, 23:59 MDT (-06:00).
At the end of the challenge period, I'll post a poll (or journal) where members can vote for their favourites. The voting period will be two (2) weeks, and will end September 15th, 2014, 23:59 MDT (-06:00).
First Place: 6 months premium membership (or 1272 points :points:).
Second Place: 3 months premium membership (or 636 points :points:).
Third Place: 1 month premium membership (or 396 points :points:).
