Challenge #3 has been posted. Just got done working on the new layout. Hope you all like! I'm going to try to have a new layout each week to match the theme of our challenges.

Challenge #2 has been posted. A L.I.M.S. (Last Icon Maker Standing) challenge will be coming up soon featuring Tim Burton movies that have Johnny Depp in them. I think we'll get some great entries from that.

Due to personal reasons - a computer will be unavailable for awhile - therefore, I have to put the community on hiatus. I'm so sorry you guys.

I probably wont see any of the comments you leave for awhile. But thanks for your support.

Voting updates:

Livejournal user sweet_machete voted for 1 of her own icons, therefore her votes have been discounted.

(Her votes)Collapse )

So if your icon got voted for, it has been discounted. (It doesn't affect anything in the results - but I want to get a point across. I do not tolerate voting for yourself.)

Also: user a_perfect_scar only voted for 2 icons instead of the required 3 and their votes have been discounted as well.

(Her votes)Collapse )

Onto the winners!

First Place (With 11 votes - not 13)

Second Place (With 7 votes)

Third Place (With 5 votes)
a_perfect_scar


Mod's Choice (With 5 votes as well - I'm having a new rule that if there is a tie and one user already has a winning icon - their next place will be bumped down and the other user who hasn't already won will recieve the tie position.)

Voting for Challenge #3.

+ There were so many entries I had to make 2 polls! Great job, guys. Thanks so much for participating. :)
+ Vote for your TOP THREE. Since there are two polls, this still means to vote for three TOTAL, not in each poll.
- Do not vote for more than 3 or less than 3. Doing so will cancel your vote.
+ Do not vote for yourself or it will be discounted.
+ If you want to use an icon - please post a comment saying which one and then wait for a response from the icon maker. (This is because you need to give credit if you use someone else's icon)

Have fun! :)

L.I.M.S. Challenge #1 - Johnny Depp - Round 1 [
December 7th, 2005 - 4:38pm]

slicingxmod
For those of you who don't know LIMS is:

Last
Icon
Maker
Standing

Basically, you enter your icons - and then when voting begins - instead of voting for your top 3, you vote for the 3 you like the LEAST. Whoever gets the highest amount of votes is out of the LIMS challenge and cannot continue onto the next round. Based on how many entries we recieve for the first round - I might only have you vote for 2, or maybe even 1 to be ejected from the LIMS. Also, I might allow people into the second round that did not enter the first. We'll see. Onto the rules -

+ Entries for LIMS WILL be screened.
+ Enter up to 3 icons.
+ You may enter all the way up until voting is posted.

+ You may use any images from CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY so long as they have Johnny Depp in them.
- The main focus of the icon should be Johnny Depp
- I have provided a few images - but you do NOT have to use them. Sorry if the quality is bad, I do not own this movie and cannot make my own screen caps this time.
+ You may use text of any kind.
+ Animation is allowed.
+ Entries due by MIDNIGHT on December 14th + Voting starts asap
-(Based on if I'm working that night or not.)

+ When posting your icon, please post a comment to this journal entry only.
- Your entry should look like this:


http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b353/slicingxmod/sample.png
banner: (yes or no)

+ If you do not know how to link an image, use this:
- <*img src="YOUR PHOTO URL HERE">
- When posting, take out the *
- A good host to use would be photobucket or imageshack.
- If you need additional help, just ask.

8 Pictures. Remember - you do NOT have to use these.

Do not forget to get your entries in for Challenge # 3 - Edward Scissorhands/Black & White !!! They are due by this Friday.

+ For now, I will allow you to enter up to 2 icons.
-If we don't have enough by Thursday - I'll bump it up to 3.
+ You may enter all the way up until voting is posted.

+ This is a Black & White challenge which means:
- At least 75% of the icon must be black & white
- White/black borders are allowed and do count as part of the icon
+ You may only use the pictures provided.
- Click images to see larger view
+ You may use text of any kind.
+ Entries due by Midnight on Friday December 9th + voting starts
+ When posting your icon, please post a comment to this journal entry only.

Voting for Challenge #2 ends tonight at Midnight. (Just to get back on track. I know it was just for 24 hours but I don't want the whole schedule to be juggled around. We've gotten a lot of votes in so I figure it will make up for it.) Banners will be up a.s.a.p.

Challenge #2 Reminder [
December 1st, 2005 - 12:27pm]

slicingxmod
This is your reminder to enter Challenge #2!

Additionally, we haven't gotten many entries for it - so to the users that have already entered (and anyone that still wants to), I'm allowing up to THREE entries... just to make it a bit more intresting.

I'm not sure when the challenge is going to end. If I have at least 10 entries by tomorrow night - I'll end it then. If not, I'll wait until Saturday night.

I think for the next challenge - comments will NOT be screened.

When I was a member of MKA_Challenge (well, I still am but they're on hiatus), they never screened their entries and I liked that a lot. People got to compliment others. It was a lot of fun. I'm a member at 13_icontest and they screen theirs. From my point of view, I don't like that very much. It makes me too anxious and I want to see the other entries. If it's a matter of cheating - it wont happen, guys because the poll allows me to see who voted for who each week. Just wanted to let you guys know!

The following members are still only watching this community and have not yet joined.

Would these users please CLICK HERE to join the community?

I am giving you until Challenge #2 is over and then I will remove you from the "Watching" list. This is nothing personal - I'm not trying to be bitchy. But I like to send out banners to remind people to join the challenges and it gets confusing when there are so many members watching the community that aren't members that I can't remember who I already sent one to. I'd appreciate your help, thanks!

Challenge #2/Big Fish/Edward Bloom & Jenny [
November 29th, 2005 - 7:40pm]

Hey guys. I'm so sorry for the delay. I had a lot to do yesterday. I chose the movie Big Fish for Challenge #2. This time, the icon must directly have something to do with the characters - Edward Bloom & Jenny.

+ You may only use the pictures provided.
- Click images to see larger view
+ You may use text of any kind.
- Lines from the movie preferred, but not required.
+ Animation is allowed.
+ Icon does NOT have to include both Jenny and Edward.
+ When posting your icon, please post a comment to this journal entry only.
- Your entry should look like this:


http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b353/slicingxmod/sample.png
banner: (yes or no)

+ If you do not know how to link an image, use this:
- <*img src="YOUR PHOTO URL HERE">
- When posting, take out the *
- A good host to use would be photobucket or imageshack.
- If you need additional help, just ask.


For some reason - photobucket isn't uploading my images to the size they should be. I would re-host to imageshack but it would take a REALLY long, annoying time to do that. So I hope these will do for you. There are 10 photos.

Good luck!!! :) (Challenge ends Friday, December 2nd at midnight - possible mid day Saturday due to the delay.)


Also, banners for Challenge #1 will either be up tonight or tomorrow. And a L.I.M.S. (Last Icon Maker Standing) contest is going to start up soon. The subject will be Tim Burton movies that have Johnny Depp in them. :)! Fun.

Challenge #1 Winners *REVISED* [
November 28th, 2005 - 12:17am]

slicingxmod
Sorry, guys! When I posted last night I forgot to post the usernames of the winners!!!


Also, it was not until this morning that I realized that a user placed both 3rd and special in the voting. For Mod's choice - I picked the one I liked best without even looking at the users... I did not realize that they had already placed. I was wondering if you guys could tell me if you think this is fair?

For some reason it's not letting me post a poll. So if you could, please just answer this question in the comments:

Is it fair for a user to place twice in the same challenge?
- Yes, the Mod has control over "special" winners.
- No, someone else should have a chance.

If you'd like to explain yourself furthur - go right ahead. If it turns out that the majority of the members think it's not fair - I will not choose someone who has already placed in the current challenge. But for now, no_your_not32 has placed both 3rd and Mod's choice. If anyone disputes this - oh well. It's already been decided for this challenge and it will not happen again if the votes say so.

Now, onto the winners!

First Place
vanilla_pixie


Second Place
fido_the_dog


Third Place
no_your_not32


Mod's Choice
no_your_not32


Congrats to the winners. Banners and new challenge posted tomorrow. :)

Wow! I'm really excited about how many people actually entered. I was scared only 3 people would participate. Thanks, guys! Also, to anyone who sees this that hasn't entered - there's only 4 more hours until voting goes up for Challenge #1! Enter, enter, enter!

When I post voting - I'm also going to be posting a poll to see what you guys think our next challenge should be. I'd appreciate it if you'd both vote and answer the poll. Thanks!!! :)

Jack's Lament
There are few who'd deny, at what I do I am the best
For my talents are renowned far and wide
When it comes to surprises in the moonlit night
I excel without ever even trying
With the slightest little effort of my ghostlike charms
I have seen grown men give out a shriek
With the wave of my hand, and a well-placed moan
I have swept the very bravest off their feet

Yet year after year, it's the same routine
And I grow so weary of the sound of screams
And I, Jack, the Pumpkin King
Have grown so tired of the same old thing

Oh, somewhere deep inside of these bones
An emptiness began to grow
There's something out there, far from my home
A longing that I've never known

I'm a master of fright, and a demon of light
And I'll scare you right out of your pants
To a guy in Kentucky, I'm Mister Unlucky
And I'm known throughout England and France

And since I am dead, I can take off my head
To recite Shakespearean quotations
No animal nor man can scream like I can
With the fury of my recitations

But who here would ever understand
That the Pumpkin King with the skeleton grin
Would tire of his crown, if they only understood
He'd give it all up if he only could

Oh, there's an empty place in my bones
That calls out for something unknown
The fame and praise come year after year
Does nothing for these empty tears

Thanks to allmusicals.com for the lyrics

Good luck!!! :) (Challenge ends Friday, November 25th at midnight)
