5 deviants said These are in the source code, look it up. Be a nerd for a couple seconds. :icon8buckplz:

With the start of the month of November, comes one of the most looked forward to emote-related projects all year: NaNoEmo! NaNoEmo for this year is already underway with multiple emoticonists participating.

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

There's also a few other events going on that you should take part in, or help promote! :dummy:

:santa: This year, I volunteered to take over the project because Krissi001 discovered she was unable to due to time constraints.  Bear with me, as it's my first time organizing such a project. :slow:
:snowflake: What is an Advent Calendar?  An advent calendar depicts the 24 days in December ending on Christmas Day. :dummy:
:snowflake: Okay, so what's special about an Emoticonist Advent Calendar?  It's special because the calendar's days are filled with things made by anyone who makes emotes, or emoticons!
:snowflake: Who can sign up for this awesome project? Anyone who can create an emote!  Skill doesn't matter, but you must be willing to commit to the day you choose. :stare:

I'll also be adding some cool entries from NaNoEmo, and the recent submissions to the gallery in general very soon. Keep promoting and starting activity in the gallery, everyone! :happybounce:

I'm some guy that likes emotes a bit too much.

I'm currently the Emoticons CV! Read below for my guidelines on suggesting Daily Deviations!

Personally, I created :icontheemoteawards: TheEmoteAwards and :iconemoteaday: EmoteADay. They're both incredibly awesome emote related groups, you should go focus your optical receptors on them. :paranoid: I'm also a moderator for :iconweemote: WeEmote on dAmn and :iconemotication: Emotication. You should go check those out too.

Offline, I'm a Computer Engineering student up at Clarkson University in Potsdam, NY. This place costs $214,000 to go to for 4 years oh lordy lordy please I need some money

If you wanna get in contact with me, add me on Skype under Waluigi-Prower. If you let me know that you added me and possibly why, that'd be cool. I also have an e-mail you can contact me at

Have a good rest 'a your day, dudes.

Daily Deviation Guidelines


The CV for Customization > Emoticons, at your service.

  • I only take Emoticon suggestions. I cannot feature anything else, including other things in the Customization gallery, but not in the Emoticons gallery, or scraps.

  • Make sure that the deviant hasn't already received a Daily Deviation within the past 6 months. FAQ #313: How can I find out if someone already has a Daily Deviation?

  • Send your suggestions to only one Community Volunteer! Considering that I'm the only Emoticons CV, this probably won't be a concern for anyone. :B

  • You can suggest your own artwork for a Daily Deviation, HOWEVER, suggesting it yourself makes me very much less likely to feature it, unless it's some of the best art I've ever seen. So it's better to wait to see if I see it myself, or if someone else sends it in for me, unless you're extremely confident.

  • I try not to feature people that have too many DDs under their belt already, or DD pieces that were submitted more than a few years ago, but given the current state of the gallery, this is merely a preference rather than a rule.

How to suggest

Just send me a note with the following:

:bulletred: "DD Suggestion" as the subject
:bulletyellow: The thumb code (or URL) for each deviation you want to suggest. You don't have to limit yourself to one deviation per note, but make an attempt to keep the note orderly, please.
:bulletpurple: Including the reason why you think the deviant deserves a Daily Deviation in your note isn't required, but it's highly recommended.
:bulletgreen: You can also mention if you want to suggest anonymously.

I may not reply to all suggestions but I do read, consider and appreciate every suggestion. :heart:

Hey! :la:

Thank you a lot for the watch, and obviously the feature! I appreciate it a lot! 

The admins should probably disable the spam filter for me for a while, I'm replying to people like a madman. And I love it! =P
