The Smiley Top Eight

The Smiley Top Eight!

 

Hello to all the gecklings, geeks, SW fanatics and general denizens of the Obsidian Community :) The Mod Squad would like to invite you to participate in another Smiley event ... after much rancour, debate, tail slashing and mayhem, we have decided - after the recent board software upgrade - that 49 permanent smilies need some new friends - we want more!!! So ... we would like to invite members to recommend smilies in the following format:

 

1 :)

2 :sweat:

3 :teehee:

 

We'll leave the thread open for a while and in that time hopefully we'll have a lot of input and suggestions. The thread will be closed and all of the smilies lined up and (depending on volume) there will be 2 rounds to limit and pair down to a final Top Eight.

 

The general intent of the Forum Guidelines applies to suggestions and member's interaction. As well, only suggestions that are accessible through open source/communal smilies may be considered. We don't want any Rule's Lawyers to come a knockin'. So please don't throw the sand after submitting your ideas. If this process works, the Mod Squad would likely open up a rotating Top Eight removal/addition. Constantly pruning and adding smilies - fun, eh?

 

Well start your smilin' and get to suggestin' :shifty:

 

*Oh did I forget a new feature? Okay meta relax ... sheesh some folks ...

 

Meta had this great idea way back in the Jurassic Period to add some flare to some of the community events, so ...

 

Each member can recommend no more than 8 smilies. Then, through the various rounds, the member(s) who has(ve) smilies that make it to the Top Eight will be able to choose a Custom Title for themself(ves) (barring approval of course :ermm: ). I hope that make sense ... so get recommending, ask clarifying questions and do play nice in the sandbox ...

 

Respectfully,

 

Fionavar

Well in the wee moments of sleep, I had a thought on the Roost and the Squad seems to think I am not too far out to lunch (on this item at least) ... and that is to tweak the titles a wee bit. Everyone who has a smilie make it to the Top Eight will be able to choose a Custom Title - fun, eh :)

Thread Pruned: Was this direction too vague ... please do keep the sauce references for other fora or PM ...

Samm ... are you suggesting that some be made to reflect the text or had you intended to actually link gifs to: 1-4 & 6?

Um - Gorth - would you like to take 2 out of there in order to come in @ 8 ;)

Umm yeah. What happened to good old top tens?!?

 

If some mod would be so nice as to delete 4 and 8 (stupid time limit on editing...) :-

I really like Gorth's #3...

Can anyone else see the gifs Samm has linked, which I apparently cannot?
