Did you know... %Emotication offers information on various Emoticon scripts to use on deviantART?
With some popular emotes not being included in the official Emoticon Legend, various internet browser scripts have been created to help make it easier to use thumbs and icons of custom emotes around the site, including in the Forums, dAmn, and comments.
To take advantage of these scripts, however, a certain set-up is required. Only certain internet browsers are compatible with these scripts, usually Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. If you don't have these browsers, a quick Google search will lead you to the proper download links. Certain add-ons are also required to properly use these scripts, either Greasemonkey or Stylish, download links for these add-ons will be provided at the end of this article.
Each script that is made has a different function and purpose. A few examples are: emoteCLOUD / superdAmn
script allows you to easily use custom emotes on the dAmn chatroom network. Forum Cloud
allows you to use custom emotes in comments, which includes the deviantART forums. dA Emoticon Refresh
replaces the images used in the official Emote Legend with revamped versions, allowing for a more sleek, stylish look.
These are just a few examples of all the possible scripts that you may find on your own if you do a quick search in the Browser Scripts & Extensions
You can download Greasemonkey for Mozilla Firefox here

FAQ: The script I downloaded isn't working, what do I do?
It depends on the script in question. One solution is to see if there is any troubleshooting guide to what problem you're experiencing. Another is to make sure you're using the correct browser with the correct add-ons, and then redownloading them. If the script ends up interfering with your browser, you can always disable and remove the add-ons themselves by uninstalling Greasemonkey / Stylish, or disabling the individual script in the Manage Scripts option.
