Custom emote suggestions

Recommended Posts

Read this entire post before posting in this thread! We have very specific requirements for submissions.


Please refrain from posting in this thread if you're not here to suggest an emote. I want to keep this thread clutter-free.

If you see any ones you like, use the "Like this" button to show that you want it/them added.

List of current custom site emotes: https://scrap.tf/emotelist


Requirements for a new emote:

  • Upload the file using the forum's file uploader, or imgur or feen.us.
  • It must be a 1:1 aspect ratio square, you can create padding around it if you don't want the content to be square.
  • It must be a PNG file with a transparent background.
  • Must be scaled correctly, if it appears stretched it won't be added.
  • Must be high fidelity and low noise/compression. Don't convert from JPGs!
  • Must conform to the site rules, so no NSFW/suggestive stuff.
  • Only one emote per post allowed. You may suggest multiple but not in a row or so close to each other.
  • No emotes that are just bad memes or used for shitposting.
  • You must submit a name along with it. It must be all lowercase with no spaces. You may use _ but not -
  • Only post one version and one name for your emote. We won't choose for you!
  • If your emote is of a non-original character your emote name cannot contain your username.


Resolution requirements:

  • On the site, your emote will be displayed at a size of 32x32 px but you must submit your emote in a scale factor bigger than that.
  • You may submit: 128x128 px (4x, recommended), 96x96 px (3x), or 64x64 px (2x).
  • The higher resolution you submit the sharper your emote will look on high dpi displays ("retina" in apple-speak).
  • You may not just upscale low resolution graphics, you must use images in their native resolution.


Animated emotes:

  • You can suggest animated emotes now.
  • They must be in the animated PNG format. You can use APNG Assembler to create them.
  • Animated GIF's are not accepted!
  • Do not just convert GIFs to APNG. This creates very large files and they won't be added.
  • You should create your own animations using clean PNGs or vectors, then convert them to APNG using APNG Assembler.
  • Maximum file size for these is 50 KiB, but please try to keep it lower. Think of the mobile data users!
  • All other resolution requirements apply.


If you've previously submitted a custom emote, you can post a higher resolution version here for it to be updated, or you can request its deletion.


If you don't follow these guidelines your post will be hidden or ignored.

I wanted to make them 16x16, but the corrupted shadow and melting details don't show right in that resolution.
