  •                 We are looking to update the PV smileys and we need your assistance! Find some of your favorite non-copyrighted smileys on the internet and post them here over the next week. We have a few restrictions since the forums haven't been overhauled since Al Gore invented the internet. These are some helpful characteristics:
     
     1. Can be any size but look best at 15x15 pixels
     2. Must be in .gif format
     3. Can be animated
     4. Look best with transparent backgrounds
     5. Smileys can be happy but feel free to "vamp" it up.

     I've never used one in my whole life but I'll keep an eye out for some interesting ones...

     Excellent.  I'd be glad to overhaul some smileys for PV, but I can't seem to find any decent freeware programs that support .gif editing or can convert other formats (like bitmap or .jpeg) to .gif without causing horrible color loss.
     
     Sure, MSPaint supports saving to .gif, but it never saves the palette correctly.  Any recommendations?

     It's possible a free program like Gimp could do it.

     Thanks - the GIMP worked marvelously.  I used to convert bitmaps to .gif using GiFFY, but it seems that GiFFY's no longer available anymore, at least as freeware.
     
     Anyway, here you go...
     
     
     
     I hope these are OK.  I tried to keep them consistent with the existing smiley icons on PV by using them as a base for these.

     There's a bunch of animated free ones here:
     
     http://www.buddyiconmonster.com/buddy-icons/1.Video-Game-Buddy-Icons/page-1.html
     
     There's a whole bunch on google using keyword 'free' that way they aren't copy-righted... usually.

  •                 Here's some from an RPG site, don't think they are copyrighted though I don't know.
     Wish I could find some Vampire Emotes.

     I like Nrvnqsr Chaos's, I would definalty use them, wish they could animate.

               Trust me, most of the names I have been called you can't translate in any language...they're not even real words as much as a succession of violent images.

     The ones from Dilapidation were pretty cool for their time too. I remember the headbanging smiley got alot of use in that forum.

  •                 At the request of La (well, kind-of a request...), I decided to make a "Pervert!" smiley for PV.
     
     Here:
     
     Also, I came up with this one a little while later... it was inspired by my thoughts about some of the posters around here (No, I'm not gonna say who.)
     
     
     
     Wee for my first animated .GIF!  Now, as for my second... you're gonna love this one...
     
     
     
     EDIT: Forgot to remove the "In reply to..." line.  I hate it when lines are automatically added to my posts.
