-Never again....... Making these, I sure wanted to strangle whoever made the moods list. Enraged, Irate, Infuriate...... ORLY. Then there's Complacent, Indifferent, Content. For serious?????
-A bunch of moods are vague and probably way off, meh, I tried I really did but 132 with load of stupid moods are just grrrr.
-Many thanks to everyone's comments/suggestions from my Work In Progress post.

-Please don't hotlink.
-Credit is love, no credit is fine, but don't claim them as your own works.
-Please let me know if you spot any funky animations or anything funky at all, as I'm pretty much dizzy right now.

Instructions to add a new mood theme

1. Upload all the images to your web hosting, do not rename any files.
If possible use web hosting that allow bulk uploading with few easy clicks like photobucket or it would be tedious to upload 132 images one by one. Note: it seems that LJ only stores address to each mood that are no longer than 98 characters. This mean that the link to your mood folder should not exceed 80 characters (because you need to leave some room for filename too, ex. "uncomfortable.gif"). It should be fine in most cases, try not to put the folder in too deep sub-folder. Also Try not to use space bar when you name the folder as it will take up a lot of characters since each space will be turned into %20, so if you have 5 space then that's 15 characters already.

2. Create mood theme by go to Admin Console. Copy the following line into the box on that page.

moodtheme_create "CHD-Animated-Ianto" "Ianto Jones - Torchwood"

"CHD-Animated-Ianto" is title of your mood theme and "Ianto Jones - Torchwood" is the short description, feel free to change them to your liking. Then click "Execute" button. It will give you a number. This will be your mood id. Leave the page opened.

3. Use the code generator below to create code.
-Mood ID: Change this to the id that you got from step 2.
-Web host: Change it to the address from step 1.
-Leave Image Res and file type as it is.

Then click "Create Code". There will be a box with code in it. Copy this entire code. To ensure you got the entire code, click on the box once then press CTRL+A to highlight the whole code and press CTRL+C to copy. It should be 132 lines of code.

4. Go back to Admin Console page again. Paste the code into the box and click "Execute". You're done adding the new mood theme.

5. Go to your LJ customize page and the mood theme you just created should be available for you to choose.

Added Notes:
-Thanks to everyone who commented, I'm glad there are other people who like them enough to use them other than me. XD

-You can add mood theme even if you got basic/plus account.

-Thanks to celebrian_lotr for pointing out that for those who can't download from Megaupload and Sendspace, you can go to Full Preview page and save the page (Firefox: File->Save Page As) then all images will be saved into the folder.

-Sendspace link added.

Pwnd by Ianto

I've always admired people's mood themes, but it always seemed like so much work to install (let alone make!). But this may prove to be just tooooo tempting! Thank you so much. Will totally credit if used.

It's actually pretty easy. Instructions in the page I linked to are very clear. I never installed it either until just today.

Im Ianto - Girlfriend

First: This is absolutely amazing and I love you for this. Love you, love you, love you!
Second: I have a free account so I can't use them. That is sad. But I will stare at the pretty all the same.

My account is free account too. Paid and Plus account can install mood themes. I think there's also instructions to show you how to switch to plus temporary to install mood theme in case your account is basic, then you can switch back later and still can keep the mood theme.

You are an absolutely brilliant person! Thank you so much for putting up with LJ's ridiculous list of moods (seriously, half of them are synonyms of each other). The mood theme looks as amazing as Ianto is, and I'll definitely credit!

Thanks :D

Tell me about it. Maybe it's me lack of vocaburary but I mean do we really need angry, enraged, infuriated & irate?? Can't we just have 2? angry and then just 1 from the last 3 for "very angry"??

Content/Complacent/Indifferent were what drove me insane, I already had enough trouble with just one, but 3??? As you can see what I came up with are very vague at best XD~~~
