This is a "last icon maker standing" competition which basically means exactly what it is. Each week a challenge
will be posted and little by little the participating icon makers will be eliminated until there is just one last icon maker standing.
ngl I picked a random image based on how it would look trend-whored. Only one banner this time around because I have no mind for anything rn.
Sign-Ups / Rules / Affiliates
Alright first off, the time zone we're going by is the Mountain Standard Time. Here's a clock you can go by;
CURRENT TIME; So you can calculate your time from that. Ask any questions if there's an issue.
· Saturday: Theme closes (at 11:59 PM MST or so, never earlier) & voting is posted.
· Sunday: Voting closes, results are posted & a new theme goes up.
· Monday-Saturday: Submissions
On average the submissions will close @ 11:59PM MST & voting will go up afterward.
Voting will not go up before 11:59PM MST, that is unless all entries are received.
If theres an extension or a delay I will make sure to notify you all.
I know time can be an issue, so if there's a concern tell me please :3
Series: Lovely Complex
Image Used: One
· You must be signed up for this round to participate.
· Submit ONE icon. Icons must be brand new.
· Must fit LJ requirements (.png/.jpg/.gif, under 40kb, 100x100, etc. You know the drill)
· Do NOT post your icon anywhere before the results are posted, doing so will disqualify you.
· Oh hey, blending is allowed, as is animation.
· Stock images, brushes, text, coloring, textures, etc, are all allowed. Fan art & doujinshi for the time being not so much*.
· Keep icons SFW (safe for work) & don't use hentai images or really suggestive ecchi images.
· If you don't submit, a skip will be used for you automatically.
* This is being done for the obvious reason that some artists don't like it when their fan art is used in icons
w/o permission or used in general. So I will do my best to keep that from happening.
3 reminders (usually on Wednesday, Friday & Friday) will be posted before voting goes up!~
· No voting for yourself in general, that also goes for getting others to vote for you.
· Anyone can vote. Participants MUST vote please, if you had time to make an icon you have time to vote. Plus it will make the results be more balanced.
· Comments for eliminated icons are mandatory, comments for favorite icons are optional, though highly recommended.
· Vote for 2 icons for People's Choice and 2 of lesser quality. Vote based on quality of the icon (textures, quality, coloring), not because you like the character, js.
· Be constructive & positive. chacusha made a great voting guideline for wd_lims on how to vote, so have a read at it. :D
· Also if it's in the voting post, I accepted it, so in b4 it doesn't fit the theme, js.
Skips & Disqualifications/Eliminations
· When you sign up you will get 1 skip. Once you use it's gone.
· You can earn an extra skip by promoting the community in a public entry before sign ups close!
You can earn a maximum of 2 skips (default skip & the promotion skip.)
· Once all your skips are gone & you don't submit, you will be eliminated D:
· If you need to drop out or there's an issue, please tell me if you can. I know how circumstances can
change & you may not be able to submit.
Disqualification & Elimination
You will definitely be disqualified if you do any of the following things:
· Post your icons before the results from a challenge go up.
· Cheat during voting, if I notice anything suspicious during voting I will investigate it & if assumptions come
out to be true, you will be disqualified & banned from participating, which would suck. So don't cheat. Please.
You will be eliminated if you don't submit an icon, don't have a skip to use, or you just don't submit.
· Will be posted on Sunday or Monday, it all depends on voting turnout.
· Will include 1 People's Choice & 1 Mod's Choice along with the eliminated icons & tally's.
I think that's it & have fun!~
If you have questions, concerns, comments, &/or feedback be sure to tell me :D
