:pentagon: Discord Emoji contest :tetragon:

A common pain and desire has been fueling us all. As a cold winter is upon us, it is time to bring warmth to our hearts and to our Discord, in the form of new emojis!


Contest rules :memo:

  • Two types of submissions are welcome: fixed emojis or animated emojis (usable by Nitro users). Fixed and animated emojis compete in two separate categories.
  • Each user can submit up to four fixed emojis and one animated emoji .
  • Submissions must be related to Curve Fever (CFP) in some way. It could be, for example:
    • in-game assets,
    • in-game art,
    • art or contribution related to CFP but not actually existing in-game,
    • etc.
  • You can also submit emojis that are related to “community inside jokes.” Please make sure these jokes are not offensive, leak private information or target a player in a negative manner.
  • Any effect or alteration on your submissions is allowed.
  • Please name your submissions (e.g. CFP_Red_Ship)

General rules :woman_judge:

  • Once sent to the contest host(s), you cannot change your submissions. You do not have to send all your submissions at once.
  • Don’t share submissions publicly or privately by any means, except with the designated contest host(s).
  • Voting only for your own submissions is not allowed.
  • Asking others to vote for you is not allowed.
  • Using alt accounts to vote for your submission is not allowed.
  • Copyrighted content is not allowed.
  • The submissions must be in agreement with the Discord Terms and Service and our own Community Guidelines.
  • Submissions failing to respect either of these rules will be automatically disqualified.

What happens with the submissions? :star2:

Community vote. :revolving_hearts: All submissions will be submitted to a community vote on Discord for all users with the role NOVICE or higher. This will lead to rewards and will influence the final selection of emojis to be put on the server.

Implementation. :wrench: The final choice of emojis to be implemented onto the Discord server will be made by the Staff. The results of community voting will be heavily taken into consideration but the Staff will decide on which emojis to implement at its own discretion. The emojis selected will be gradually implemented onto the CFP server.

Technical stuff :hammer_and_wrench:

As much as possible, please try to meet the following technical criteria for your submissions. You can still submit even if you do not strictly meet these criteria. However, meeting these criteria would be very appreciated as it would make our job much easier, and it would also increase the chances of your emoji being implemented (as it wouldn’t require as much work on our side). :clap:

:partying_face: The results are in! :partying_face:

Please note that since we are talking about Discord emojis, the announcement on Discord is much more helpful as it includes a lot of the emojis in question. This forum announcement will therefore just give results and names, but to see the actual emojis, please check out our Discord server!

Again, I am super happy with the submissions that came in, so much good stuff, definitely a good part of them that will make it onto the servers in the weeks/months to come – and a couple of them have already been added. :cowboy_hat_face: We will figure out the details for the rest soon, but definitely something to look forward to!
Until then, let’s talk GEMS and PRIZE… Here are the results for the FIXED category:
