Torchwood Rumble - A Different Kind of Icontest
Torchwood Rumble ♦ Rumble Basics ♣ Entries ♥ Voting ♠ Bonus Points
Welcome to torchwoodrumble

A rumble is an icontest similar to a LIMS but without the eliminations. Instead of voting a person out each week everybody stays in for the entire round, earning points each week and winners are decided at the end based on their cumulative scores.

Points are earned each week by entering each challenge, by voting on each challenge and then extra points are awarded to the top 3 placing icons from each challenge. There is also a bonus point to win each week in a special category.

The idea for this community came from firefly_rumble and the rules and guidelines here are adapted from those.

torchwoodrumble is a rumble centered around Torchwood. Challenges will be focused on the show and it's characters.

Since this is a new community we need promotion to get members. To encourage promotion there are bonus points to be won by promoting the community during the sign up period.

★ A total of 3 points can be won by promoting the community. This can be done by posting a banner or a link to the community in another journal and then commenting to the sign up post with a link to your promo (or a screencap if the post is locked). Please do not promote in any of the main Torchwood communities - unless you own them yourself - as I will be promoting there are people will get annoyed by hundreds of identical promos. Any journal or community that you yourself own is fine
★ A total of 1 point is available for creating a banner for others to use to promote the community. To do this please comment on the banners post with a link to the banner you have made to earn this point.
