It's been more than five years since I was active here. And (sadly) it's been five years since I did anything with pixels.

I grew up, went to uni and started a career in advertising.

Anyway, I must ask you all a favour.

If you could please click here and vote that would be swell. You can vote daily for the next two weeks if you're really keen.

It would help me win $10k, and that would be awesome.

Until 2014,

Zac

Over the past two years or so I've been logging in every few months to see what's doing. I kind of like how everything has changed, I see new layouts, a confusing groups system and perhaps most importantly; updates to the Emoticon Legend. I guess it's also a bit sad that everything has progressed and I haven't been a part of it. I suppose I'll continue to check back in every now and then.

Between my social life, my career, university and other commitments, I just lost the passion I once had for this place. But I love that it is still thriving.

But I need a favour from you all. It only takes a minute.

If you head to www.flavourcrusaders.com and click on the blue Vote Now button and vote for Zac and Cookies 'n' Cream, I would be eternally grateful. If you want to explore the website, you'll find a video of me recently getting a full body wax. And if you'd like to read more about the campaign, or what I do with my life now, check out my blog.

Keep the Emoticon Legend rocking.

+ Three New Emotes

Journal Entry: Thu Jun 18, 2009, 12:07 AM




So I haven't been around in a while. Unfortunately over the past year deviantART has slowly become less and less a part of my life. I think I'm coming up to four years on this place. That's a long time.

However it was nice to log in and find three of my emoticons officially added to the Legend. Certainly, an update to the Legend has been a long time coming, but good to see things moving along and although I bitched about it a lot back in the day, you have to give cred where it's due to deviants like mattdanna.

It appears you crazy kids that make up the emoticon community today are still thriving. Keep that up, I've heard it's a pretty rad crowd to be a part of.

I'm doing some research at the moment on 4chan, specifically /b/.

Pretend I have never heard of it, tell me what I need to know. The more detail the better. Then pretend I have a really good understanding of it, and tell me even more.

I'm not quite sure what I like about this emoticon. I think it's the randomness of it, or the fact that you expect something to happen but it never does. Mhmm.

At an unknown point in time the Emoticon Legend saw a new addition. Whilst it doesn't officially appear on the Legend it is still available for public use. The original artist is unknown and this takes the current total of "invisible" emoticons to thirty nine.

The bowl itself may not be pixelled, but I couldn't care less. The emoticons are nicely shaded and I think the whole thing is damn cute. Yum!

As of late we've seen four emoticons updated and another four added to the Emoticon Legend. Another short article, but perhaps a few deviants will be enlightened by this information.

The newly updated bullet points, all of which were designed by TheRyanFord, are:

Dear Whimsical-Dreams,

You might think I'm senile, but when I insulted your best friend it turned out to be the best thing I ever did. She loves my Oprah Winfrey imitations. And she finds my nostrils adorable.

I don't want the love letters back. And you can keep the butterflies too, they will only remind me of you and how your feet stunk after a game of tennis. I hate tennis.

Please stay out of my apartment.

Go burn yourself,

Zac

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 17, 2008, 3:19 AM
lolly,

:wheat: has been made an official emoticon.

It doesn't appear on the Emoticon Legend but is still available for public use. A stupid fucking meme has been placed as a priority over the hard work the Emoticon Community put into EmoticonHQ.

You've put Emoticon Legend updates on hold for over four years now. Except when you introduced emoticons when you wanted for your own personal benefit but finally you saw the light and established EmoticonHQ. But this is beyond hypocritical, breaking community standards after they had been officially set. I understand if the project is on hold for greater things, but if it's on hold then it's on hold. Nothing should go through.

Double standards shouldn't exist in a community.

By uploading this as an official emoticon you're fucking over the emoticon community who put a lot of hard work into the gallery and the Legend.

Of course the irony is that today is supposedly Deviant Appreciation Day.

No regards,

Zac

I've always been a man of simplicity. But look at that amazing shading and most importantly the detail of the fist. The most edible emoticon of August without a doubt.
