Welcome to another installment of Emotional Emoticons! It's really warm outside where I am, and I'd like nothing more than to dip in a pool and have some iced tea. But first, I'll show you the features for this week's issue, which were all found with the search terms of Summer and Hot.

Sand castle building by Synfull Sand castle building by Synfull just wows me with the amount of time put into making the sand castle, and :grump: doesn't look to pleased, but does he ever? :giggle:

Pool Party Collab - Synfull by BlissfullySarcastic Pool Party Collab - Bliss by Synfull Pool Party Collab  by BlissfullySarcastic and Synfull makes me want to jump in the pool and cool off. CANNONBAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL! Check out Synfull's version here.

Summer Ice tards by Droneguard Summer Ice tards by Droneguard Don't they look yummy?

Water Ski by madb0y Water Ski by madb0y Although I've never learned to water ski, this emoticon makes me want to go out and learn! Bonus points for it being made in GIMP! :faint:

:poolparty: by stuck-in-suburbia :poolparty: by stuck-in-suburbia makes me want to get out my swimming trunks and go for a nice refreshing swim. *does the backstroke*

Icemote by Droneguard Icemote by Droneguard makes me want to go down to the local ice cream store and ask for a cone with emoticons on it! :dummy:

I found litecrush and Indae’s entry to the ‘Opposites’ themed collab event a really interesting twist on the theme. Both sides have been nicely pixelled with a clever link between them to make a single great piece of work.
I just love how ROBlNHOOD has managed to animate a range of different water themed items into H2O in one fluent emoticon. Each has a great feel to it and some of the special effects really shine through
Character emotes aren’t always easy to master, but :devsparklyde

CodePLZ? What the heck is that? CodePLZ - What is the plan?:idea: The plan, in part, is to have a discussion.
As we began to examine the Emoticons category we quickly learned that we had a bit of a mess to clean up, but fortunately it's a very cute mess and very fun to think about. :D
As a category, Chat Friendly Emotes isn't going to cut it anymore. There are Emotes in it that come from various inspirations, meanwhile,  a very clear culture that has formed around Emotes that deviantART specifically has always supported. The ones that are 15 x 15 pixels in size doing all wonders of things. Providing a category for this specific, and very popular style is a must and this would split those  Emotes from intermingling with other sized, shaped and styled Emotes.
The thought was to make this style reside within the new category, "Chat Friendly PLZ" but let's discuss that! Changing a category name takes us a matter of seconds to do, so we would love your input on the final name for the category - home to the adorable

For a more user-friendly guide, see CodePLZ - the emoticonist versionhq has just announced some more information on the whole 'codePLZ' concept and tbh, i had to read through the journal about 3 times to understand the termonology used. Therefore i decided to write up an 'emoticonists' version. This is my interpretation of what has been written. Let me know if any of the details are wrong.
What is codePLZ?
CodePLZ is a new feature that is currently in production to replace the current Emoticon Legend to allow more emotes to be used anywhere around the site. This means we wont be confined to only emotes on the 'official list' but allowed to pick and choose any 'chat friendly' emoticon available.
This feature would be implemented in the place of the long awaited 'emote dictionary' you may have heard about.
How will it work?
When you submit a chat friendly emote to your gallery, it will be given a unique code (similar to a thumbcode - possibly :emote2523422: ) which could be used in areas of the site where thumbcodes are not normally allowed (ie regul

You know, if you're going to feature a collab, you normally credit both artists equally. :paranoid:

Edited it to have both in there.

I know, but I had already featured `Synfull. :B
BlissfullySarcastic's avatar
Then you shouldn't have featured the emote at all. :B
BlissfullySarcastic's avatar
You featured `Droneguard twice and give him due credit. :lol:

:cough: Yes, I know. As well as `stuck-in-suburbia. :B

...Yet you don't give `Synfull equal credit?
Tsk tsk.
