The Group

All deviants are allowed to join the Emotication group as a member. Whether you are a new emoticonist, an experienced emoticonist, a tutorial writer or just simply interested in the emote community we welcome you to us as an official member!

To join, simply click the 'Join our group' link at the top of the page and enjoy your instant membership.

Additional privileges may be opened up in the future for members, so I advise you to join rather than just watching the group, but either option is welcomed.

As a member you will be able to suggest favourites to the group. We accept both emote tutorials and emote base packs.

To suggest a fave, simply go to the Favourites page and click the ' + Suggest a fave ' button

All suggestions should be sent to the Featured folder and from there I will sort them myself into the correct categories as well as adding them to the base pack or Tutorial lists.

Please note we do not except emoticon submissions. For an emote submissions club please check out Emoticiety

Feel free to use one of our stamps or our avatar on your page to help support the group! Displaying one of these is not compulsory but all support is appreciated.

Okay, so I'm new to creating emoticons and I made several but when I uploaded them I didn't include the colon at each end. Does editing the title afterwards not work to get it to show up by typing it instead of using the add media? They function fine via searches but being able to type them in the same way one types familiar emoticons like :hug: would be nice. Does it just go back in to the waiting period or am I doing something else wrong? Thanks! :D

The emotes with colons are related to the old emote system called the emoticon legend. Previously these were the only emotes you could use in comments, and each had its own special code.

Since the add media feature was developed, dA has stopped updating this list (apart from the odd official emoticon like a new dA logo). So they only way to use new emotes is the add media feature. The old ones continue to work just because I think people would be upset if dA changed that system. So sadly adding colons to the name won't make any difference.

How Do You Put Up Your Emoticon As Something That Can Be Used By Others?

What do you mean specifically?

If you put your emoticon in the Emote Gallery, it can be used by others with the "Add Media" function.

Hiya, nice drawing :)

However this group only accepts emoticon related tutorials, so it won't really fit into our gallery.
