November NaNoEmo 2014November is approaching fast and Mirz123 and I are happy to announce that the November NaNoEmo will be running this year!
What is NaNoEmo?
NaNoEmo is a fun emoticon challenge hosted every November to match up with NaNoWriMo in the literature community. Over the last 3 years we have had a fair number of emoticonists taking part and some fantastic emotes appearing all through the designated month.
The main purpose of the challenge is to encourage emoticonists to make emotes throughout the month of November. The most common challenge undertaken is to make 30 emotes in 30 days, though others choose to set alternative targets which better suit their other commitments or art style.
Whilst our previous NaNoEmo event hosted earlier this year was restricted to only visual purpose emotes, the November event returns to the 'normal' format where any emote style is accepted. So it is completely up to you whether you o
Emote Secret Santa 2014 - Sign Up!What is Emote Secret Santa?
EmoteSecretSanta is a fun community project which runs each winter for the emote community. The aim of the project is to encourage emoticonists to make a special gift for a fellow community member and share some art around the holiday season.
How does it work?
Anyone interested in joining the project must send a note to the group (details below) before the sign up deadline.
Once the deadline has passed, each person will be assigned one emoticonist for whom them must make a themed emote gift. In return, they will receive an emote from someone else in the Secret Santa.
These gifts are made in secret, uploaded to Sta.sh and sent to the group via note. On Christmas day all of the gifts will be revealed in an article featured on EmoteSecretSanta.
Who can take part?
The Secret Santa is open to anyone who can make emoticons. It d
