Weirdmotes, perfect for people who like to use some of the weirder text emoticons. I did not make these. They are by darkmoon3636 on DeviantArt (they can be found here). It says in her FAQ that people can feel free to use them in IMs. I wanted to be able to use them in Adium, and after I got it all figured out, decided to post them so other people could quickly and easily use them too.

You can use = or : for eyes, with or without a - for a nose.


1.0 - The original set by darkmoon3636, shown in the first image.
2.0 - Added the second set by darkmoon3636, shown in the second image.
2.1 - Added a :D smilie made in same style for a different project by darkmoon3636.
3.0 - Added the third set by darkmoon3636, shown in the third image, including a slightly different version of the :D smilie. There is now at least one smilie for each capital letter! lol.
3.1 - Added updated version of the :< smilie. Plus, added some variants, such as the ability to type :p as well as :P

Adium Moderator's note: The set by 'darkmoon3636', of which this is a port, is called "Tardmotes". This name is not acceptable by the standards of the Adium community because it is potentially offensive, so the AdiumXtra has been renamed "Weirdmotes".

Nice set. Really appropriate for some people on my buddy list...
Thanks for pointing out that error in Window Controls, I think I have it fixed now if you want the updated version. (I couldn't find any other way to let you know so I figured I would post it here.)

They're adorable!
I just noticed that she came out with a second set of Tardmotes. Are those to come?

# by drock on 10/13/06 at 12:28:26

Yes, I just saw those a few days ago, and I've slowly been working on adding them. A new version will be released soon.

# by kineticturtle on 10/18/06 at 15:22:24

I love these so much!
Could you perhaps add = variants to the definitions?

like =) and = and =D

Then they'd be perfect!

# by drock on 10/19/06 at 02:45:59

You already can use = or : for eyes, with or without a - for a nose. The only time the equals sign won't work is for =0, =3, and =x, to avoid problems if you are IMing about math. But the equals sign should work with everything else!

# by kineticturtle on 10/19/06 at 04:54:31

Haha, hey, I'm totally crazy, you even put that in the description.
Totally my bad, I wasn't thinking.

What I meant was some particular smileys like =D that don't work, but in reality, I'm just a lazy little man and I should add those myself if I want them so much.

That being said, =( doesn't work. Is that because of math as well?

You're awesome thanks!

# by drock on 10/19/06 at 13:49:06

No, there is no =D or =( because Darkmoon didn't draw those, at least not yet. She was going more for weird emoticons like =C or =[ or =

# by drock on 10/19/06 at 13:54:29

I said "equals less than", and it thought I was writing HTML and cut me off. *ahem* Tardmotes is more of a supplemental emote pack of weird emoticons, so if you want the normal emotes, you can use a different set for those, and then use Tardmotes also to add all the weird ones, like =J. Since the Tardmotes are supposed to weird, I doubt Darkmoon will add any more normal ones besides =), but if she does make normal ones in the same style, I will be sure to add them to the set!

# by kineticturtle on 10/19/06 at 14:04:49

Yeah, I'm just a glutton for consistency though, so I'll probably force it for the time being. ;-)

# by drock on 11/30/06 at 17:51:41

Just letting you know that =D has been added! I hope darkmoon makes more Tardmote style-emoticons at random like this one.

# by kineticturtle on 11/30/06 at 17:54:30

Sweeeeeet! Thanks for letting me know!

# by twalichiewicz on 12/03/06 at 18:34:24

Here are some I'd like to see:


# by drock on 12/04/06 at 17:09:30

Do you think I should set :1 as a variant for :T and :7 as a variant for :J for the time being?

# by twalichiewicz on 12/04/06 at 23:16:49

yes the for :1, but :7 is more like sader than :J

# by Imon on 01/22/07 at 14:22:07

# by Imon on 01/22/07 at 18:45:25

oh, and i forgot:
they are missing!
greets :)

# by highpass on 01/23/07 at 09:16:27

Indeed, i noticed the missing wink. Probably one of the top 5 most used emoticons yet sadly this set doesn't seem to have it. Apart from that, love these to bits.

# by lightxs on 03/28/07 at 23:28:56

This is my favourite emoticon set. Only sad thing is, there isn't a wink emoticon. But other than that, it's perfect!!

# by azzua on 04/16/07 at 01:23:55

These are simply the BEST emoticons I've ever seen for any program anywhere. I love them! These are the emoticons I use on a daily basis, hahah.
You might consider adding in the future:

# by solly3 on 03/15/08 at 07:59:03

How do you make your own smiley set?

# by pinkfish on 06/08/08 at 00:26:36

They are called tardmotes or tard emoticons. ^^

# by Juniper on 10/30/08 at 18:02:46

# by arisen on 08/18/10 at 07:06:51

These are, by far, the best emoticons I've seen on any client.
