Entries will be due on the Sunday evening of the week in which we have recieved enough entries to proceed with a full contest. So, the sooner the entries come in, the sooner we can proceed. Of course, with the holidays and the end of the year about us, I understand that everyone is quite busy!

Rules

o1.] You may submit three icons for this challenge.
o2.] You must use a line of at least two words in each icon.
o3.] Submit your icon in a comment to this post. (Comments are screened.)
o4.] Submit in the following format:



Which should look like this:

Challenge o4: Voting! [18 Dec 2006|11:37am]

rampala_quistis
[ mood | excited ]

Woo! Finally getting this challenge up for voting with 13 beautiful icons!

Please vote for first, second and third and the special category (Best Show of Emotion) like this or in any such recognizable fashion:

01:
02:
03:
BE:

Remember, votes are weighted! Votes for first place get three points, second gets two, and third gets one. You have until 11:59pm EST on Wednesday, December 20th to cast your votes. Anyone can vote, and it goes without saying-- no cheating, don't ask your friends to come vote for you. You may, however, vote for your own icon if you truly think it is the best icon present (or 2nd or 3rd best, etc.).

When voting for icons you should consider the icon as a whole, the quality of the picture(s), the placement of lyrics, the clarity of the text, and how well the lyrics fit with the graphic(s).

I threw you the obvious...Collapse )

Hey all! I am very excited and happy to announce that we are going to have enough entries to run the contest for "3 Libras"! Thank you everyone-- all the entries so far are gorgeous! :D I am very excited.

However, this means if you still want to enter you have until tomorrow night (Sunday, December 17th at 11:59pm EST) to submit any more entries. So go submit!

Challenge o4: Extention [07 Dec 2006|01:01pm]

[ mood | distressed ]

Well, I really don't know what to do about the lack of submissions, I've tried advertising where it might be relevant, but I certainly can't make people submit. All the same, I can't bare to let the few beautiful entires we have recieved go to waste. I've been trying to think of how to handle this problem other than just extending the deadline and ultimately being disappointed when it rolls around and there still aren't enough submissions. I wish I understood why I could be doing to fix the problem (suggestions certainly welcome) or if the situation is out of my hands.

Until then, I've decided to use a rolling deadline for Challenge #o4 until we recieve enough submissions to run a full contest. That is, I will continue to post reminders and the deadline will be Sunday night, 11:59pm EST on the week in which we've recieved enough entires to hold a full contest.

So, please, everyone, Submit!

Your "3 Libras" icons are due tonight at 11:59pm EST!

Submit your icons here!

By the way, the "3 Libras" MP3 is up (has been for a few days now)-- so go download it if you want to hear it.

Also, as of right now we still don't have enough entries to run a full contest, so I'm hoping we'll get some more before the night is out. Come on folks, I know you have it in you! *crosses fingers*

While the entries we got are gorgeous, we still don't have enough to run a full contest. As such, I'm extending the deadline again until Sunday, November 19. Make sure to have your entries in by 11:59pm, EST!

I'm also going to advertise in roselinedcoffin, maybe we'll get some more submission. If anyone wants to spread the word about the contest, that'd be wonderful. We really some more submissions (on a regular basis)!

Thanks all-- can't wait to see what we get!

Is it working? [15 Oct 2006|03:50am]

[ mood | tired ]

All members, please vote!

So, the last challenge was a complete bust. Even after adding the second song, there was only one entry. I know I've been insanely busy lately, but if no one is entering, there's not much I can do. We have so many members, but practically no one submits. I'd really like to keep the community going... but I'm not sure if you guys do. So... let's evaluate things.

Poll #845137 The Fate of Utena Choir

Should we keep the community up and running?

Yes! I submit, I love it! Don't close it down!
3(75.0%)
Yes, definitely-- but some changes have to be made.
1(25.0%)
No... it just isn't working.
0(0.0%)
I don't know... either way.
0(0.0%)

Do you submit icons to the community?

Of course!
0(0.0%)
Yes, but only when I have the time.
3(75.0%)
Sometimes... only if the song strikes me.
0(0.0%)
No, but I vote.
1(25.0%)
No, I just watch.
0(0.0%)

What do you think can be done to improve the community?

Here's a reminder than your "Stockholm Syndrome"/"Can't Let it Go" icons are due Friday, September 29 at 11:59pm EST.

Submit your icons here!

Note to the community: Hey guys, I still only have one submission for this challenge and it's from before the song addition. Considering how the challenge has been going... well, if we don't get some more icons, I really don't know what to do. I could just extend the contest yet again, but that doesn't seem to be helping much. Suggestions are welcome.

Song: I don't have this actual Goo Goo Dolls song (which am I very sad about) and can't find it at the moment. So, if anyone has it, mayhaps they can send it to me or upload it to say, MegaUpload and post the link? I would be eternally grateful. In the meanwhile, I am going to keep looking for said song. But, the lyrics will have to surfice for now. My apologies!

Challenge o3: Extention/Addition [21 Sep 2006|04:24pm]

rampala_quistis
[ mood | busy ]

Well, obviously "Stockholm Syndrome" was a complete bust. So! I am doing two things:

(1) Extending the challenge until Friday, September 29th and
(2) Adding a song to it. That is, if you still want to do icons to "Stockholm Syndrome" or any icons with those lyrics that were submitted (there was one) will still be valid. However, since it was a bust, I'm adding another song to the challenge which will be up momentarily with lyrics and hopefully an audio file.

Any problems, please let me know! Thanks!

Hey all, I've gotten no entries for "Stockholm Sydrome" and am going to extend the contest until next Friday, September 15. Remember, entries are due by 11:59pm EST.

Of course, due to lack of entries I'm wondering, is everyone just busy or does no one like the song? If it's the latter, let me know! I need to know these things to make them right. ;)

Submit your icons here.

Also, I'd like to apologize about the lateness of this. Moving back in up at school has proved to be much more stressful than I originally predicted. My room's not even entirely set up yet. >_< And I just set up my computer now. Banners for both challenges one and two will be up tomorrow. Again, I'm very sorry about the delay! I didn't forget about you guys!
