Emoticon Suggestions

Postby GeneralOfDeath » Wed Mar 09, 2011 7:13 pm

I was thinking that we could use some more emoticons on the forum, so I have a few suggestions. These are full-sized pictures, to be shrunk to about the size of :sbr:, and text added.

First: in the vein of :protip::

Reading, "Hey! Listen!"

Next:

"Can't let you do that!"

I'll get some more up tommorow.

Good ideas for capshunz, but not sure the images are iconic enough.

No additional capshunz need apply.

All suggestions so far are crap we do not need at all. They lack connection to Lego/Brikwars nor have they any connection to forum shenanigans most other emoticons are derived from.

I suggest something like this instead. Only in a more artistic way (i am not an artist and cannot photoshop):

Awesome, it only needs to be done in sepia (black-n-white).

Just what do you think you're doing, Rody? Rody, I really think I'm entitled an answer to that question.

The Hal image is iconic enough mated with the "I can't let you do that" caption. This is the only acceptable emoticon idea so far.

Everything else is crap as inted for emoticons, even the blobot idea as an emoticon is crap, however, the blokbot image and caption are pretty cool in and of themselves (and yeah, Zahru is right, sepia would improve that); they would make a great forum battle banner or rulebook image.

HAL 9000 never said "I can't let you do that."

The quote is "I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that," which is rather less BrikWarsy.
