Hey guys! We've decided to make a blog for you all to request emoticons for use in the chat room.
You may suggest a code name for the emoticon (what you want to type to see the emote) and provide a link to the image/gif you want to be used for it. Make sure they are appropriate and do not violate our policies. Keep in mind emoticons are very small, so whatever picture you choose will be shrunk to fit the height of one line in the chat.
An admin will check your requests and approve it before adding it to the MediaWiki page. We may tweak the code you suggest if the code already exists or for other reasons.
