Okay, so after a few days (and less than 24 hours left), we have a rousing total of zero icons entered in Week 01: Burnin' Love.

Therefore, I have decided to extend the challenge until next Friday, December 12 @ 6PM GMT 8+. One extra week to play around with the lyrics sounds about good to me. :) So please submit!

Your icontest mod,

I'm in an Elvis Presley mood today. (And yes, I know I'm early. :D) So our very first theme is...
Lyrical: Burning Love

Out of the following lyrics, you must use at least three (3) consecutive words as your icon text. After (or before) those three words, feel free to play around as you wish with your text. Liberties such as changing "and" for "&" are also allowed.

You're gonna set me on fire! )
- You may submit a maximum number of five (5) icons.
- They must be made "fresh" for this icontest (meaning no reusing old icons).
- They must follow Lj's standards (under 40kb, etc).
- Icons must be either feature Robin, Raven or Robin/Raven. Only official art, screenshots and scans from the Titans Go comic are allowed. Please no fanart.
- When submitting, include the img src of the icon and the URL:

This theme will end on Friday, December 12th @ 6PM (GMT 8+). Have fun with it and advertise this to all your fellow Rob/Rae shippers! Any questions? Feel free to ask in this post.

Greetings everyone! I'm the new mod in charge of the icontest around here and I would like to give you a rundown of how our timeline will go.

Timezone: I will be using the GMT 8+ timezone so if we don't live on the same longitude, I suggest using the Time Zone Converter to find out what times you'll need to remember.

Timeline:
Day & Time:Event(s):
Monday (6PM GMT 8+)New theme posted + results of previous week
Friday (6PM GMT 8+)Theme closed + voting post
Note: There might be some weeks where I might be a little late with posting. Please bear with me on those weeks. :)

Themes:
These will range from image provided, word themes, lyrical themes and anything else I can think of. :) If there's a theme that you would like to suggest, just comment on this post (comments are screened).

Submissions:
You may submit a maximum number of five (5) icons. They must be made "fresh" for this icontest (meaning no reusing old icons) and follow Lj's standards. When submitting, include the img src of the icon, the URL and (only the weeks when we have two themes) the theme you are submitting under.

Theme: First

Voting:
As stated above, the voting post will be open from Friday (6PM) until the following Monday. Members will have chance to vote for the top three and a special category. Members of the comm may vote even if they did not enter the icontest. More the merrier! :D However, you may NOT ask your friends to vote for you. I believe that's called cheating.

Results and Banners:
Once voting is closed, I will be posting a public comment on the voting post to say so and then post the results. If the winners would like a banner, I will have to ask for the following: (This is so that I can make better banners that match your winning icon.)
Original Image:
Font used:
Any major textures/effects used:

The future home of the icontest archive )

In closing, I would like to encourage you all to participate and have fun in the icontest! :) Advertise the comm to your fellow shippers, whether they be graphic-makers or not. No starting drama or flaming. :) Have fun!

So, September has been busy and stressful for me. I just got promoted at work, Ive had zillions of hours and not enough time to sleep. Ive hardly had time for my own purposes as it is and it is clearly not going to be slowing down.

Ill begin posting fanfiction prompts again soon, though they may not continue to be weekly, alot of that depends on my schedule.

I am however looking for someone who wishes to take over the Icontests.
Applicants need the have/be the following:
→ Graphic savvy: as you will make the winner's banners
→ More timely than me: since you will need to post contest related posts on a set timeframe
→ Desire to moderate this community: Little moderation is really needed, but you will need to keep an eye out for things.
→ Ability to properly tag your entries! Im a huge stickler about this.

Icontests will work off of the schedule I had put in place that I havent been able to follow yet. I want the contest going on often enough to keep activity going, but spaced out far enough that this community doesnt become nothing but an Icontest.

If I get no applicants, the Icontest will be removed temporarily or permanently depending on my schedules.

Anyone interested in taking over the Icontests, comment to this post with a little bit about why you wish to take them over. Comments will be screened.

    Since there was only one person who entered, we dont have enough icons to actually vote.

    [livejournal.com profile] estrella_blanca: Will you choose your favorite from each catagory for me? Those will be the ones I make you a banner for. Post them here.

    Ill post a 'winners' post (for archive linking purposes) that will display all her entries.

    All banners will come this week since I have some extra time.

    WINNERS )

    Im really pleased with the turnout. Considering only three people entered, it went over pretty well. I know alot of people were worried with Hurricane Dolly and all the weird weather throughout the country. I hope to see a higher turn out next time.

    The next Icontest starts on August 1st! I hope to see everyone participate :D

    This is your final reminder.
    Week 000 ends on Tonight


    In all fairness though, I work in the morning.. and Im not going to check timestamps. Ill be disabling comments to the entry when I get the voting prepared.. so until that happens, you can still enter. Its just one of those things. My job's hours has me wimp out so Im never awake at midnight. *shrug*

    This is a reminder.
    Week 000 ends on July 25th


    Tomorrow is the last day. We have enough to vote, thanks to so many of our wonderful members who helped raise my hope back up. The contest will continue past this, but will be subject to how many times we have to cancel due to lack of submissions.

    Because of that, I am still looking for someone interested to be a bannermaker, and warn winners that until one is found they have a good chance at being late because my schedule is hectic enough to delay them.

    The contests will go into rotation begining on the 1st, 10th, and 20th of every month.

    We are at the midway point. We need to get more icons in so we can vote. Even if a catagory cannot be voted in, that catagory will not disappear. However, if we dont get enough icons to vote in either catagory, the contest will not continue. Someone else would have to be appointed to run it. I refuse to waste my time if I am the only one who will participate in it.

    We need to have 10 icons per catagory to vote in that catagory. We currently have no icons for catagory one and 5 for catagory two. Ive added the running tally to the original entry as well and will update it each time entries are submitted (and Im online).

    EDIT: We've started getting some entries. Thanks guys. You really made me feel better. v.v;; Easy to lose faith now and again right?

    Ill be posting more reminders for this first contest than I will other contests. Just to help get the word around I suppose.
