Extension. . . [09 Apr 2004|11:23pm]

[ mood | annoyed ]

I'm giving an extension. . . I've only received one entry, and that was in the last half hour.

C'mon people, recruit more people to the community!

This round's theme is very broad - Unrequited Love. People who should have been together but weren't, this can include slash pairings.

To give you some ideas. . .

Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Buffy/Xander, Xander/Willow, Anya/Willow (at least I think so)

Lord of the Rings - Frodo/Sam, Aragorn/Eowyn, and so on. . .

I'm only giving you one more week. That's because I want to fit in another contest before I go off to Italy for five weeks in May.

Winner! [24 Mar 2004|11:45am]

[ mood | anxious ]

Okay, a few hours late, but oh well. . . . All the entries were absolutely beautiful this week!

Winner!Collapse )

Banner will be posted at some point tomorrow, since I'm currently at school, and busy tonight. New theme will be posted at the same time.

Oh, and the referral contest is still on!

Allright, roundup! [22 Mar 2004|07:35pm]

[ mood | blah ]

Still not as many entries as I would have liked. . .but oh well. Hopefully the next subject will inspire people more.

So here they are. . . .someone suggested putting individual links, instead of the icons, but the problem with this is that in several cases this can inadvertently reveal the name of the entrant. I didn't notice a speed difference, some of the icons were slowed down to begin with. If it is a problem for you, right click to just show the images individually, and I'll trust that you don't look at the address bar to see the name of the iconmaker.

Apologies to anyone on dialup, since some of these are absolutely HUGE. That is why the roundup hasn't been posted til tonight, since only yesterday did I return from my parents' home in the country, where they only have dialup, so it would have been near impossible for me to do the roundup on Friday.

Anyways, the deadline for voting will be 8 am EST Wednesday morning. I'd do it that night, but Wednesday nights I'm otherwise occupied, so. . .

Oh, and no voting for yourself!

Entries! Vote!Collapse )

People, people. . . [13 Mar 2004|02:00am]

[ mood | cranky ]

. . .only five entries!

I know we can do better than that. We had seven last time.

Where are all the people who I see complaining about LJ size limits when making their contest entries? There are dozens upon dozens, I've seen them in many a challenge community. In case you've forgotten the challenge, it's using lyrics from "Into the West" (see original post here).

So I'm going to extend this contest to next week, March 19th, 10pm EST. And adding a new contest - whoever can recruit the most new members by the new deadline, will also win a banner!

Now, these new members that you recruit also have to submit icons to the contest, so no just having everyone on your friends list join. These new members must mention their recruiter's name in their entry email, as well as in a comment to this post.

Entries? [06 Mar 2004|12:18am]

[ mood | cranky ]

I've only received 3 entries so far. . .and it's past the deadline.

I'm going to extend it another week. . .there's over a dozen of you in the community, I would like to see entries by each of you! If you're really busy, or writing papers and essays for school like I am, I'll forgive you, but if you can spare the time, it would make for a much bigger roundup!

So entries now due March 12th, 10pm EST. The roundup should be done that night in between bouts of studying for the midterm I have that Saturday, and the new challenge should be up Sunday night, before the three papers I have due that week. So hopefully not everyone has all the schoolwork I do!

Three and a half hours to go! [22 Feb 2004|06:33pm]

[ mood | restless ]

Three and a half hours of voting left, so if you haven't voted, please do. We currently have a three-way tie for first, so if no one else votes to end up breaking this tie, I will cast the deciding vote.

Roundup! [20 Feb 2004|09:45pm]

[ mood | blank ]

Here we go! First round of voting here in unusable_beauty.

Please vote for your favourite icon, taking into account all the factors. I have the fandoms listed next to the icons, but do not discriminate based on the fandom, vote for which you think is made the best.

There is one still icon in this roundup, I decided to allow it this time since it's the first challenge, but in the future, remember: This community is for icons *over* the LJ limit, and still icons aren't going to have that. So only icons over the limit!

Voting will last til Sunday night (10pm EST), when the winner will be posted. There will only be an award banner for first place this time around, which will change when we get more entries.

Onto the icons!Collapse )

Reminder! [19 Feb 2004|09:16pm]

[ mood | creative ]

Icon submissions are due by 10pm EST tomorrow (that's Friday) night!

I have six submissions so far, more are welcome, but I will run the contest with just those entries if no one else enters, since we're still getting off the ground.

Email the image links of your submissions to daughterofnyx@yahoo.com.

First challenge! [04 Feb 2004|10:29am]

[ mood | crappy ]

The first challenge will be from this selection of lyrics by Nightwish:

Would you do it with me
Heal the scars and change the stars
Would you do it for me
Turn loose the heaven within

"Ever Dream" by Nightwish

You don't need to use all of the lyrics provided, just some of them.

Entries are due by 10pm EST Friday February 13, the contest deadline was extended since this community was started in the middle of the week.
