    OK, let's discuss to see what emoticon contest we're gonna hold next.

    Here are some I suggest:

    -Starcraft 2 unit
    -Original Warcraft Race

    Almost a year has passed since the last one was held... So i suppose it's time for another one. Roll in your opinions guys, and if you are for the contest, roll in your theme suggestion (If you don't like the up 2 there).

    Seems like a reasonable suggestion if enough people show interest but I doubt we'll be having any more added to the hive's selection :p

    It's still nice to make them. And seeing that we have a SC2 theme, and seeing that the Hive officially became a SC2 community as well as a WC3 one, it deserves at least some decent SC2 emoticons.

    Starcraft emoticons would be nice since this site also supports Starcraft 2 modding.

    I already made some Sc2 related Emoticons, a year ago, for UDmod. I think that Sc2 related emoticons contest is a great idea! :D

    Yes, Starcraft for the win! I mean, this is WC3/SC2 modding community after all...

    Meh, I often find themes like "warcraft" or "starcraft" at a lose for creativity in contests, it just seems so painfully obvious that it's not much of an effort to come up with an idea, what about a more general type "theme," like Anger or a specific emotion? In that way you'd also be able to explore the different ranges of said emotion instead of just doing a full spread of all emotions, like varying degrees of anger

    I think it's not because we lack of imagination, it's because the hive lacks of sc2 emoticons. so at least, make a theme with sc2 in it. Like Anger with sc2 units

    Well it's not just emoticons, I've seen it in plenty of other contests too where entries in "Warcraft" or "Starcraft" type themes end up overall at a lack of creativity in the entries - I'm guessing it just doesn't force people to think creatively enough, it's something they're familiar with so they don't have to stretch their perception in any way to adapt - of course not everyone goes this route, it just seems there's a more abundant supply of uninspired entries when the theme is something so easy to picture, something so familiar.

    But whatever I guess, if the site needs emoticons why not get a bunch of people to do them up

    I knew it... I knew most of the people would agree to have a SC2 emoticon contest. Anyway, let's wait a couple days more to see if someone suggests something (I highly doubt, though) or we could go with this one.

    Such an excellent idea should have never been closed. ^^
