Back in August, we ran VP NaNoEmo. This is a special event that focuses on "Visual Purpose" emoticons, which are essentially emoticons that are created to be admired as art, not with the purpose of use in chats, etc. While the turn-out was not stellar, given the lull in the emoticon community over the last year or two, the number of emotes created for the event was impressive, nonetheless.
As we very quickly approach the launch of NaNoEmo (and yes, Synfull
and I plan to co-host it again this year), I thought it was about time that I did the re-cap of the Visual Purpose event. I would like to thank everyone who participated. Whether you made one emote, or manage to make all four, we thank you for taking part.
Again, a hearty thank-you to everyone that participated. We hope to be back on schedule for the next "visual-purpose" event, come July.
