Hello all

I'm still here, still alive. So, who wants a round 2?

I'd love to get one going but to do that I'm going to need a little help. I'm looking for a co-mod. Ideally I'm looking for someone who wants to get heavily involved, posting challenges, results and voting etc. However someone who is mostly up for making banners and helping out when real life gets in the way and I can't get to the computer would be welcomed to. It doesn't matter if you've had any experience with running icontests or not, just willingness to get involved is all that's needed.

If you're interested please comment here. There's a very simple little copy and paste form for you. :) Comments are screened

Copy and Paste


In the meantime I'll be giving the comm a bit of a make-over and hopefully we can get this all up and running again very soon :)

Time to announce the winners of Round 1.
Winners banners are behind the cut along with participation banners for everyone who made it through to Challenge 10.
I've really enjoyed running this round and I hope you all have. Everyone entered fantastic icons, so congratulations to every single one of you!

Okay, these are our final challenge results. I will post up the winners of Round 1 tomorrrow after I've double checked my adding up and everything, the tally won't be updated until then. There will also be banners for the winners and particpant banners for everyone who made it to challenge 10!
In the next couple of days there will also be a survey/feedback post which will include the question of whether you want a round 2 and if so when you would like it to start. Keep an eye out :)

Final voting and we have some gorgeous icons for you to vote on.
Remember you get a point for voting and for several of you that could make the difference between placing and not placing!

Rules
  • Vote for your 3 favourite icons. Remember, you are voting on the quality of the icons not just because you like the character.
  • Also vote for the 1 icon you think best meets the requirements for this weeks special category. You can pick an icon you've already voted for above. The special category this week is 'Best Use of Negative Space'
  • Please leave a comment stating why you chose that particular icon for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. These comments will be made available to icon makers after the results are posted, if requested.
  • Incomplete votes will not be counted.
  • You do not need to be a participant to vote
  • Anonymous votes will not be counted.
  • Don't vote for yourself, but encouraging friends to vote here is fine (just don't tell them which is yours).
  • Votes will be submitted through screened comments.
  • Voting is weighted as follows: 1st = 3 pts; 2nd = 2 pts; and 3 = 1 pt. These totals are added to determine challenge winners. SC votes are tallied separately.
  • Voting will close Monday, 9th November, 2009 6PM, GMT.

We really could use a few more votes before I close voting for Challenge 9, literally every place and category has a tie right now and I'd like to avoid an endless round of tie-breakers!
So if you haven't already voted please do so here

Voting will be extended 24 hours to allow for this

Be aware the rules are slightly different for this voting since we have sets instead of icons.
When you're voting for Best Individual Icon please give the set number and the letter (either A or B). Numbers and letters are above the icons.

Rules
  • Vote for your 3 favourite icon sets. Remember, you are voting on the quality of the icons not just because you like the character.
  • Also vote for the 1 icon set you think best meets the requirements for this weeks special category. You can pick an icon you've already voted for above. The special category this week is 'Best Range of Emotion'.
  • Also vote for 1 individual icon for 'Best Individual Icon'.
  • Please leave a comment stating why you chose that particular icon for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. These comments will be made available to icon makers after the results are posted, if requested.
  • Incomplete votes will not be counted.
  • You do not need to be a participant to vote
  • Anonymous votes will not be counted.
  • Don't vote for yourself, but encouraging friends to vote here is fine (just don't tell them which is yours).
  • Votes are submitted by screened comments and will remain anonymous.
  • Voting is weighted as follows: 1st = 3 pts; 2nd = 2 pts; and 3 = 1 pt. These totals are added to determine challenge winners. SC votes are tallied separately.
  • Voting will close Monday, 2nd November, 2009 8pm, GMT.
