Who has the permission to add those emoticons? And does anyone have the email of such person to ask him to do this?

I like them all. I'd slow the eyes animation on :shiftyeyes: just a hair. And Ninja Twinsen...he kind of looks more like a bandit. Maybe tighten up the portion covering his face and then add more to the top portion?

Oh shoot. Surely El would have permission to the directory. Is there any way to contact him?

If I could get ahold of him, then I will rework the speed of shiftyeyes and the ninja and continue to make more of them.

Too bad we have to wait for El to be able to upload some images.

BTW, there is a way to get rid of those weird edges on images. But it's really hard. For me anyways.
The trick is called translucency, rather than transparency. If you could use the alpha channel to gradually make the edges of the image transparent the more you get to the border, it should allow the background colour behind the image to render through the translucent edges, and blend together automatically on the screen regardless of where it is used. Transparency cannot do this. You'd need something better than Paint or Irfanview though.

Great emoticons!
Funny I was just about to open a thread asking if someone was willing to make new icons, and I was hoping you would reply positively (Zee).
Would be really awesome to have the other species too, if you are motivated...

I don't think the GIF format supports translucency.

Another true fact... but doesn't vBulletin support PNGs for smilies? Because in that case, what a strange piece of software.

I used photoshop to make these. MS Paint is too difficult to work with. Plus photoshop allows the use of a grid. I have a program specifically made for this kind of thing but I have every aspect of photoshop memorized so I find it the easiest for me to use.

I'm not sure why the emoticons have that ghostly border around them though. Kobold mentioned it as well but even the originals have a border > I use the Dark Monk skin of the forums so its noticeable for me. But I wanted to stick as close to the base of the originals as possible.

If I find a way to contact El then I will make more of whichever type of emoticon that everyone wants. It doesn't take long at all to make them.

True that, but I was just covering the white edges problem, not specifically the animated smilies.. I guess it's a dead end there...

I've always preferred the "shy3", "bigsmile" and "bye3" smilies of my example. The bye one because it's such an extremely piteous goodbye smilie that it's cute.

Or, to be more correct, animated PNGs arnt supported by all browsers yet.

Heres one though;


In some browsers (Opera and maybe Firefox) you get a lightening effect after a second or two.
Sadly not in Chrome/Webkit.

I'm sure Chrome cannot stay behind FireFox/Opera, now can they?
The lightning shows in both my Opera and Firefox, but Chrome doesn't indeed.
I'm not even trying Internet Explorer.

But, if I may ask, for what purpose would GIFs still be used, if/when all browsers support animated PNGs? If I'm not mistaken, GIFs are lossy, and PNGs lossless. So if the latter'd be animated, and all supported, wouldn't that obsolete gifs completely?

GIF is lossless but it only supports 256 colors and index transparency. APNG is (sadly) non-standard and is popularized by Mozilla. According to Wikipedia, it's unlikely to become standard since it was officially rejected.

Hmmm. Stupid png-haters... Lets make a poll about keeping a petition about asking for a second opinion.
