HIATUS
by Ashley (takemebaby_xo)
at April 14th, 2007 (10:12 am)

Well, the challenge ends tonight, and we still haven't gotten a single entry. I decided that rather than shut the community down for good, we're going on hiatus for a while. We never really picked up again once we came back from winter break. And my show opens next week, so I'll be very much overworked between my job and performances, so I'll be too tired to keep up with what's going on here for a few weeks, anyway.

Results will be up some time tonight when get off work. I'm leaving the current challenge open, so you can still participate during the hiatus. Assuming we actually get entries, the hiatus will end and voting will go up on May 25th. I'll try to post an occasional reminder, but like I said, I'm going to be very busy. If May 25th rolls around and we STILL don't have entries, I'll extend the hiatus to the end of June (everyone will be out of school by then), and we'll go from there.

So, yeah. Don't let the community die! Lol. You have over a MONTH to get your icons in! I think everyone will have time in a month to do at least ONE icon. :P

at April 9th, 2007 (11:23 pm)

Results will be up later this week. If you haven't voted yet, please do!

And so far, we have NO ENTRIES for the current challenge.

By Friday if we don't have enough entries to put together a vote, I'm probably going to close the community. It's not a threat, I swear! Lol. I just don't want to nag/harass you guys into participating, and it's just too much trouble to keep up with a dead community, you know?

So, yeah. Entries due Friday!

Alright, I know I said voting was going up last night, but I was too exhausted (my job likes to run my life and hardly pay me for it). I am leaving to go to work again in about 20 minutes, which means you have an extra day to get your icons in! Due 10 p.m. tonight, and then voting and the last results will be posted.

Icons are due TODAY at 10 p.m. EST. We still don't have that many entries in, after two weeks, and with the lack of participation since December, I'm seriously considering shutting down the community. Or maybe going back on hiatus until finals are over. :P

Comments are screened, so feel free to leave any questions, comments or suggestions in this post if you have any.

So you may have noticed the voting hasn't gone up yet. Well, that's because I decided to officially go to two-week long challenges. So icons are due on FRIDAY this week! We only have I believe one entry, so make sure to get those in! We've been slacking off a lot lately, ever since we came back from the hiatus. If we don't start picking up, we may shut down the community. We'll see how things go over the next couple of weeks/months.

Get your entries in! :)

MIDWEEK REMINDER
by Ashley (takemebaby_xo)
at March 1st, 2007 (07:50 pm)

Well, a little late. But anyway, icons are due Saturday, and we only have one entry! Make sure to get your entries in!

And just a heads up...we might start doing the challenges for 2 weeks instead of every week. I was just cast in a community theatre production, and I now have rehearsal 5 nights a week after work. I don't think it'll interfere with my modding responsibilities, but in case I start getting really backed up, we'll temporarily move each challenge to last for 2 weeks.

And I guess you're all interested in knowing who the new banner-maker is going to be! We had a few applicants, and it was a realllly hard decision to make, especially since I'm on my own now, but I came to a decision!

OUR NEW BANNER MAKER IS....

Erin!!!
aka icontastic17

Congrats, Erin! And, if you choose to accept the position, I'm putting you to work right away, lol! The Rose McGowan and Cher banners need to be made. There's no rush or time limit; those are just the ones I haven't gotten around to, yet. Let me know if you've changed your mind or not, and if you're on board, I'll add you to the maintainers. :)

Alright, well you may have noticed that the SMG results haven't gone up yet, and neither has the next set of voting.

The results haven't gone up because of two things: I've been busy and I've been slacking, lol.

The next voting hasn't gone up because we only have 2 entries. We need more than that, guys. You don't have to have seen the movie! Most of the images aren't from the movie. So let's aim for Wednesday. Get your icons in by Wednesday!

I'll get the Sarah Michelle Gellar results up later tonight.

NOW HIRING
by Ashley (takemebaby_xo)
at January 21st, 2007 (06:34 pm)

Well guys, we've hit a turning point in this community.

Abbie (scarlettrose_) and Heather (pixar_eve) have to go their separate ways because of, well, reality. Abbie canceled her internet, and Heather's computer is broken, plus there's those pesky jobs and family, and just...well, reality, like I said. :P

So, I need a co-mod/banner maker. In the meantime I can do the banners, but it would just be easier on me to have some help, since I run several other communities in addition to this one.

So if you're interested in this position, leave a comment with your name, examples of your work, and all, if any, experience you have in modding a community. I'll make a decision in the next couple weeks.

Comments are screened.

Alright, as you probably noticed, we're a little behind in things. This is a crazy time of year, so we're all working pretty much non-stop. Plus, Abbie's internet is broken, and I'm going out of town next week, and Heather works for UPS, so you can imagine how busy she is, AND she's pretty much taking over iconstillness single-handedly. So for the time being, this community is being put on hiatus. Not a long one, just for about 2 weeks. The next challenge will be posted on January 5th. So we'll see you then! :)
