If you're interested in creating your own emoticon that others can use around deviantart, this is your guide.
The process is very simple! Just log out of the account you are logged in as, and create a new account. Your account name should describe the emoticon you want to create, and it should contain "plz", "pls", "plx", or "stamp"
in the name. You may need a new email account, so sign up for a new Yahoo
, or Hotmail
Once you have created a new deviantart account, simply change your avatar to the emoticon you wish to use, and voila! You have a new plz account! Typically, you won't need to log in to your account ever, but sometimes plz account holders like to put deviations related to their emoticon in their plz's gallery, or answer messages from users, but it's unnecessary. Now you can use your emoticon by typing :iconplzaccountname
: in any text box.
The final step is to add your newly created plz account to our database! Visit helpplz
, and submit the name of your plz account. Your emoticon is now accessible by thousands of people each day!Note:
Creating too many plz accounts might have violate the deviantart terms of service. I seem to remember it saying in the #faq
that 3 plz accounts could be created per user, but I cannot find that text any longer.
