Hey, guys! You may or may not have noticed, but with the most recent forum update we've been given the option to add a whole ton of custom smiley faces to our forums for your use in day-to-day text conversation. And in order to make it a little more inclusive, we've decided to open up the ability to choose what those custom smileys and whatnot are - to YOU!
If you have a knack for art or just want to see your favorite emoticon included on the forums, then this is exactly the way to get that done. Here are the rules:
1. The smiley must be 18x18px (or some multiple of this, for high-def images) in size, with a transparent background if it's not perfectly square. Additionally, totally square icons are less likely to be included, since they have a bizarre clipping issue most of the time unless properly formatted. We'll make every effort to include it, but it might just simply not be possible.
2. The smiley must not be vulgar or offensive. This should go without saying....
After spending a great deal of time investigating the various different client-side modifications that are usable in Minecraft, and having to hear from both sides about what should and shouldn't be permitted, I felt the need to clarify the existing rule. Note that the rule is NOT changing, per se, but instead it is being clarified so that there are no further problems regarding it's implementation.
Partially due to misunderstandings amongst folks who aren't as technically inclined as others, there's been a big grey area about what is and isn't permitted on the server regarding client-side modifications. There are a few reasons for the approach we've chosen thus far, the most notable simply being that we can't possibly come up with a definitive, all-inclusive list of what either should or shouldn't be permitted. This clarification will attempt to give a general idea of this, though, without being absolute since there is no feasible way for us to really do that.
