This is awake let me give you a rundown of the emote schema:
The baseline emote height is 123 pixels
move up or down 10 px depending on content (i.e. some images look too large at 123 and some high detail emotes look better a bit larger)
try to scale according to content... for example: if you have an apu without headgear at 123... and an apu with a hat - the emote for apu with a hat should be larger than 123 to ensure you don't have apu's with differing head sizes...
so try 133, 143, 153, and 164. You can go to 200 and larger if it is warranted but we try to top out at 164px just for chat's sake.
Optimize your emotes for a black background... you shouldn't see any pixel "crust" on the edges of the emote... if you need help cleaning it up just @ me when I'm around
obviously we have some fucked up emotes in there but those are treasured for their terribleness... e.g. apulick
Tasty gets mad when I clean them up because as well as practicing the art of Samurai and the blade, Tasty also celebrates the Japanese idea of "wabisabi" or beauty in imperfection.
The last time I tried to clean up an emote Tasty called me a "baka gaijin" and wouldn't speak to me for a week.
