    Oh good thing someone wants to have this contest. 2 years ago, I opened up a theme discussion however I got lazy and did not start a theme poll (also the amount of themes and people participating into the discussion are few)

    IMO, 6 emoticons (with no min and max) would be the one for me since having a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 12 would be just unfair for me since people would vote for someone who have more emotes.

    Emoticon Contest #3 - Theme Discussion

    I may not be able to host this one tho, maybe @Heinvers can. But there's a possibility for me of joining or judging.

    Im thinking about the judges.

    4 emoticon maximum. Quality over quantity.

    Animated = more points.
    Looping = more points.

    Thats it. Hiveworkshop reforge should be the theme.

    Looping for animated one should be a requirement imo

    Wouldn't more points for both animation + looped animation give too much of an advantage to animated? I'm not sure how it would be judged, but it's not that hard to make a looping animation. :p

    Can someone elaborate on the reforge theme? I don't really understand what the theme would be, reworking existing emoji's in higher quality?

    Couldn't really agree more, 4 is just the right amount IMO too without min & max.

    I'm not sure if I would join tho. Thanks for the tag btw, @Scias !

    I don't think 4 is the right amount, since after not having a emoticon contest for so long to do so little is a bit of a shame, I say take advantage of this opportunity and put more effort in it - 6 isn't that much of a difference!
    There's also not much different expressions/moods to be created in a "set" of only 4 emoticons, so it wouldn't be all that useful in the end.

    I would rise the max size to 40x40, like it was in Emoticon contest #2. So there's more space for artists who aren't used to working on tiny scale to work with, and more space for animations. Also we could possibly have some entries that match (at least in size) the winners of emoticon contest #2.
