reddit alien

Submitted By Alexis Ohanian (kn0thing)


the adorable and informative reddit mascot is available in AdiumDock-form.
if you like the mascot, there's absolutely nothing to suggest that you'd also like our site -- but there's only one way to know for sure...

//shameless plug below is a community-driven news/content aggregator (basically, a place to go to find what's new and interesting online). if you haven't reddit yet, you should. if you already have, you should read my blog OK, that's all I got.


version 0.5
I updated the "awake" look to include a chat bubble in the background, thanks to a suggestion from HunterTV and changed the "flap" animation to be more pronounced.

version 0.4
No major changes. Darkened the outline (again) so it'd be #00 black and updated the preview images. Also made small change to flap animation (hand on chin) to exaggerate the surprised look ;-)

version 0.3
Darkened the outline to make the alien stand out a bit more on a cluttered desktop (like mine).

version 0.2
Added extra frame to "Connect" animation for a better effect.
Included a shameless plug in dockicon description.

w00t! if only the reddit mascot, adium duck and tux could team up...they could fight crime together.

This is nice, but my only problem is that the icon is smaller than the rest of my icons on the dock :S

Thanks barmycarmy, let me look into this problem and I'll see if I can fix it for the next update.

I took a look and this may be a bit of an optical illusion, since a good chunk of the dock icon is taken up by the alien's antenna -- making the overall body look noticeably smaller. Not much I can do about that, sorry.

Your post is very exciting and informative. I am planning to decide on a career move and this has helped me with one aspect. Thanks man!

# by irononstickersnet on 08/28/14 at 06:21:45

I will do that... I got a batch of new Mo-Fi LPs and they all had the residue so maybe it is the sleeves.... I'll check into it..
