Week 8 Banners [27 May 2005|03:30pm]

They're finally here - sorry about the lateness, crazy week for me.

Extension~ [20 May 2005|01:07pm]

Yes, an extension, as we only presently have one entry. One.

And I highly doubt we could gather another 5+ entries within a day, so I'm extending the animation challenge for one week.

Your entries are now due @ 6 PM ET Friday, May 27th.

And remember, feel free to ask questions about this week! I know animation can be tricky, so direct all questions to me via commenting on either this post or the challenge post.

I suppose that's all for this update, I'll just edit or post again if I'm forgetting anything. (MCAS has turned my brain to mush, sorry!) So, hopefully I'll see you all by next Friday!

Week 9 ~ submit [15 May 2005|06:39pm]

This week's challenge is a technical challenge: animation. Your icon must have some sort of animation in it. It can be anything from blinkie text to mini movies to...well, you name it.

If you have any questions, whether about making animated images or if your icon will qualify or anything else, just comment on this post about it. ^_^

Submit as usual by commenting on this screened post with your icon and its URL.

All entries are due Friday @ 6 PM ET. :)

Hey guys! Here's the banners for week 6 - week 7 to follow soon.

EDIT: I've now included both week's banners in the same post (so as not to spam all your f-lists). ♥

Week 6Collapse )

Challenge #8 - submit [08 May 2005|05:51pm]

This week's theme is "simplicity".

Usual standards apply: you can use any effects, brushes, etc. that you want as long as you adhere to the theme. You can either use the word (or a variation, like "simple"), or make a simple looking icon. Either is fine.

One catch though: do NOT use anything from the song "Simple and Clean"!

I know for a fact that I'd get a ton of icons that say "Simple and Clean" on them, and I don't want that. Be more creative than that everyone, I know you can be. ^_^

Entries are due by Friday @ 6 PM ET. Submit by replying to this screened post.

Let's try to get a bit more than we have been lately. :)

I'm here to announce a short extension, because we only have 4 entries. ._.;;

You now have until 10 AM ET tomorrow morning to submit.

That's IT though. If I don't get at least one more, I really don't know what exactly I'll do, but I've got to crack down on the extensions, it's too crazy. @_@

C'mon guys!

Challenge #7 reminder [05 May 2005|09:20pm]

Challenge #7 entries are due tomorrow at 6 PM ET. Click here to submit and/or get the required images for this week.

We currently only have 3 entries, so if you all can't scrape together at least two more, I'm going to have to extend again. The constant extensions are really driving me crazy, so please guys, try to get some more entries in!

On a semi-related side note, what kinds of challenges do you prefer? Are you more likely to participate in any certain type of challenge?

Yes, I'm trying to encourage more participation.

So, if you would like, please comment telling me what types of challenges you like. Do you prefer lyrical ones, one word themes, or provided images? Or is it fine with the varying challenges?

Or do you have any suggestions? Any comments are welcome. Comment on this post regarding this, but please do not submit to this post! ^_^;

Thank you to those who have submitted thus far and continue to participate. I know we can get together some more really nice icons, so please do! I await your wonderful entries!

Challenge #7 submit [02 May 2005|06:00pm]

Challenge #7 time!

This one is another image theme, in honor of a magazine I managed to find in the dealers room at Anime Boston 2005...

The pictures!Collapse )

You can do whatever you want with the icon as long as you use at least one of the images under the cut.

Entries must be in by Friday @ 6 PM ET.

Let's get a better turnout than in the last challenge guys, I know you can do it~

Reminder [27 Apr 2005|04:06pm]

Your spring icons are due in by tomorrow, Thursday, at 6 PM ET.

We've gotten 5, so the show will go on, but honestly, that's not too great considering you've all had nearly two weeks. ._.;;

Anyway, this is your final reminder for this challenge, so be sure to get those entries in!

Extension [22 Apr 2005|05:59pm]

This is the official note that there will in fact be an extension. You have until Thursday, April 28 @ 6 PM ET to get your "spring" entries in. We have only 2 entries so far, so be sure to get your icons in by that deadline. :)

Week 5 banners + Week 6 reminder [20 Apr 2005|10:13pm]

Les banners.Collapse )

Now, the reminder.

We only have ONE entry so far for Challenge 6 ("spring"). Now, unless I get a massive influx of entries by the Friday deadline (or unless anyone objects), I'll most likely be extending it to Thursday, April 28th, at 6 PM ET.

Why Thursday? I'm going to Anime Boston Fri-Sun (Apr 29-May 1), so I don't know when I'd be able to get on Friday. ^^; So there's a heads up for a possible late posting on that Sunday.

So, regardless, click here to get those "spring" entries in, but if you feel you need/want more time, take it, because in all likelihood there's going to be an extension anyway.

I guess I'll see you all around then! :)

Challenge #6 [18 Apr 2005|06:18pm]

Another word theme this week: spring. It must be, however, in the sense of the season spring, not the object.

This means you can either use the word or express it visually. You're all creative, so I know you'll do well with it. It's pretty open-ended.

As usual, you can use any brushes, effects, etc. you want; effects can include animation, transparency, etc. As long as it fits the theme. ^_^

Submit by replying to this screened post with your icon and its URL.

Entries are due Friday at 6 PM ET. :)

Challenge #5 results [18 Apr 2005|06:12pm]

Well, we had no more votes, so the tie stands. Sorry for all the delays everyone. @_@

Here's how it played out.Collapse )

Congrats to everyone. Banners coming within the next few days I hope. New challenge coming shortly. :)

One last extension. ._.;; [18 Apr 2005|10:36am]

This is the last one, I swear.

We somehow STILL have a tie even with more votes, so I'm extending it for the last time to 6 PM ET today. If there's still a tie, I'll just have to award the place to both entries. (If everyone thinks it's okay!)

The new challenge will be up then, just after the results.

I must say though, I have a massive presentation to prepare for school this week, so the banners will probably not be ready for results time this week. ^^; Gomen! I hope to have them up within the next few days if I can't manage them for later. ^_^

So, I'll see you all at 6 PM!

Voting Extension [17 Apr 2005|06:10pm]

We haven't received any more votes, so I'm going to extend the voting period.

Not a lot; you have until 10 AM ET tomorrow morning to get votes in.

There's still a tie, and I'm not ending this voting until there isn't a tie...or it lasts another week, whichever comes first.

C'mon guys, you're disappointing me here, I know there's more of you who've voted before who can vote now... ^_^;

So get to it guys, I'm relying on you here!

Voting reminder! [17 Apr 2005|08:38am]

You have until 6 PM ET today to vote!

I usually don't do voting reminders, but we presently have a tie for one of the places. We don't have enough entries for me to be dishing out tie banners, so please, get out and vote if you haven't already!

It amazes me, the mediocre turnout we usually have with voting...c'mon guys! I often have as many votes as or less votes than the number of entries! We have 19 members who can vote. It takes less than a minute to vote, so please try to!

Click here to vote!

The regular submission reminder. [14 Apr 2005|07:48pm]

All entries for Challenge #5 are due tomorrow @ 6 PM ET.

I'm glad to say we already have 6 entries, but remember, there won't be a fourth category unless we get at least 8! I have hope that we can reach that this week, since I usually get at least 2 entries on the last day. ^_^;

Click here to submit!

See y'all tomorrow for voting! :)

EDIT: My bad, there's only 5 entries so far. Get 'em in everyone!
