PE: Community Week PLZ Accounts

Tue Nov 20, 2012, 7:23 AM
PE 2010 stamp by projecteducate



Community Week - PLZ Accounts

:bulletred: Overview :bulletred:

Can you spot the difference between Glad You Like It Sign - Nano1 by Mirz123 and :icongladlikeplz:?

If you hover your mouse over it, you’ll see that the first is a link to a deviation (fav.me/d5judp5), while the second is an icon for a special type of account called a PLZ account.

PLZ accounts are deviantART accounts made for the sole reason of being an emoticon. Anyone can make these accounts. (For more information on making PLZ accounts, see this previous Project Educate journal fav.me/d3jjwiv.) The deviant chooses an account name that represents the image he/she wishes to display, and usually adds the phrase ‘PLZ’ at the end, so other deviants are aware that that account exists to be an emote (in the example above, the account name is “gladlikeplz”).

To use the PLZ account, you merely type in the account’s name the same way you do for any other deviant when you wish to show their icon:

:icon(deviantname):

For our example, type:

:icongladlikeplz:

And, voila, we have :icongladlikeplz:.

It’s true we could use the thumb code for this one with identical results, but :icongladlikeplz: is so much easier to remember. Also, thumbs don’t work in comments, while icons do.

If you ever see a PLZ account you like, and might want to use later, simply hover over it to learn its name.

:bulletred: Let’s Get Fancy :bulletred:

PLZ accounts can be placed side-by-side, for added effect. They can be divider lines, like these:

:iconheartsdividerplz::iconheartsdividerplz::iconheartsdividerplz::iconheartsdividerplz::iconheartsdividerplz:

:iconblackdivider0redo::iconblackdivider2plz::iconblackdivider3plz::iconblackdivider4plz::iconblackdivider5plz:

:iconemoteline1plz::iconemoteline2plz::iconemoteline3plz::iconemoteline1plz::iconemoteline2plz::iconemoteline3plz:

:iconbutterfly1plz::iconbutterfly2plz::iconbutterfly3plz::iconbutterfly4plz::iconbutterfly5plz:

:iconbummy1::iconbummy2::iconbummy3::iconbummy1::iconbummy2::iconbummy3:

Just repeat the pattern for however long you want your divider to be (or, in the case of the black divider, just :iconblackdivider5plz: ).

Or they can fill up a screen. Why have one bunny, when you can have a hundred or more?

:iconrabbitsplz::iconrabbitsplz::iconrabbitsplz::iconrabbitsplz::iconrabbitsplz::iconrabbitsplz::iconrabbitsplz:

:iconrabbitsplz::iconrabbitsplz::iconrabbitsplz::iconrabbitsplz::iconrabbitsplz::iconrabbitsplz::iconrabbitsplz:

:iconrabbitsplz::iconrabbitsplz::iconrabbitsplz::iconrabbitsplz::iconrabbitsplz::iconrabbitsplz::iconrabbitsplz:

:iconrabbitsplz::iconrabbitsplz::iconrabbitsplz::iconrabbitsplz::iconrabbitsplz::iconrabbitsplz::iconrabbitsplz:

Okay, enough of that. :iconnotimpressed-plz:

Also, if deviantART's default font isn't snazzy enough for you, and italicizing or bolding just don't cut it, try PLZing it with these alphabet PLZ accounts:

:iconalphabetars: :iconletter-bplz: :iconletter-cplz: :iconletter-dplz: :iconletter-eplz: :iconletter-fplz: :iconletter-gplz: :iconletter-hplz: :iconletter-iplz: :iconletter-jplz: :iconletter-kplz: :iconletter-lplz: :iconletter-mplz: :iconletter-nplz: :iconletter-oplz: :iconletter-pplz: :iconletter-qplz: :iconletter-rplz: :iconletter-splz: :iconletter-tplz: :iconletter-uplz: :iconletter-vplz: :iconletter-wplz: :iconletter-xplz: :iconletter-yplz: :iconletter-zplz:

:iconaqua-aplz: :iconaqua-bplz: :iconaqua-cplz: (etc.)

:iconanimeace-plz-a: :iconanimeace-plz-b: :iconanimeace-plz-c: (etc.)

If finding all the individual letters is a bit daunting, you can use a premade message like these:

:iconthxfavplz: :iconthankyouscript1::iconthankyouscript2::iconthankyouscript3: :iconyourwelcomeplz::iconyourwelcomeplz2::iconyourwelcomeplz3:

Here are some useful status PLZ accounts: Status Stamps + Plz Accounts by SweetDuke

And I'm sure you've seen these (or something similar): :iconyouareplz::iconallowedplz: and :icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:

There's many, many options to choose from.

can you say please, how you are italicizing and bolding? bcoz I can't find that anywhere
Reply
:iconsingingflames:
SingingFlames Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
I'm using HTML. For italicizing you will need to use this code <i>your words</i> and it will show up like this: your words. Bolding is similar, using <b>your words</b> which will appear as your words.

Other useful ones are <u>underlining</u> (underlining), <s>strikethrough</s> (strikethrough), and <small>small</small> (small).

And you can add a divider line with <hr>, like the one below. Watch out, spacing gets odd with it though (it adds a hard return after the line - I did not add that extra return).


(If you're curious how I added all the HTML tags without it coding the words, I added extra italics tags inside the < > of each opening tag, and that broke the HTML code.)

Heh, I know you didn't ask for all that, and I hope I didn't bore you. If you need anything else, or it didn't make sense, please feel free to ask. I'm happy to help. :)
