Default AB Smiley Competition Preparations

Hello, fellow Abandonians

The idea here is that Abandonia deserves it's own set of smileys, made by us, the members, smileys that are unique to Abandonia and not stock smileys found out there.

I suggest that the smileys we use are related to AB in some way, perhaps DOS game related ones?

Anyway: Before the competition starts, we need a list of themes, like "smile", "raving" etc etc.

In this topic, you will post what themes you would like to see smileys for. When the competition starts, a new topic will be opened where a list of your suggestions will be presented and you can post your smiley/smileys in whatever category you like.

Later, we will all vote for the best in each category, and the winning entries will be used instead of the stock ones we have now.

This topic will be open until Friday, and the competition will start on Saturday.

The list, so far:

Angry
Embarrassed
Games
L O L
Members
Raving
Smile
Sneaky

Very good idea!
I'm going to check if I have enough skillz to create the smileys...

However, here you have my suggestions:
- Ninja! we need ninjas!
- joking
- Love
- death
- jolly Roger
- Oh my god!
- Blowing up
- Crying

First check what we have :
http://www.abandonia.com/vbullet/mis...=vB_Editor_001
We have enough ninjas I think => and one death smile is there
But we could substitute them in case you don't like these.

It's not about like or dislike. It's all about having our own smileys, smileys you won't find anywhere else, smileys we abandonians can relate to as abandonians, as retro gamers, as abandonware fans. That was the basic idea behind this

I think we need a Guybrush Threepwood, or at very least, a three headed monkey. LOOK BEHIND YOU!
