Community Officially Closing [09|24|06]

rekquiem
[ mood | tired ]

Hey everyone, this is __starkissed with a new journal. I feel bad about my last post and the fact that I said that the community wasn't closing, because I'm going to have to close it. I just don't have time anymore, and there really is a small amount of entries every week, so really there just isn't a point anymore. The community is slowly dying and and I just can't keep it up so that only a few people can enter. Plus, even if there was more activity I still can't do it. I apologize.

I'm not handing the community over to anyone because this has been solely my community and I want to keep it that way. I suppose I'm selfish, but I've seen how other communities wind up when given to someone else. Sometimes it's alright, but for the most part, the community still dies. So this is it guys. The official end of theoc_icontest. Bye everyone, and thank you for a great year and a half.

Winners // Challenge Forty Four [07|27|06]

__starkissed
[ mood | meh ]

So sorry these results are late guys. Life is hectic as hell and getting more and more insane every day.

After this the community is going to take a Hiatus until September 1st. It's just easier that way. Hopefully we can get some new people by then and hopefully more participation and hopefully my life will have calmed down a little bit. I'm not going to enlist any co-mod help because really all I need is a banner maker, and we have that and she's wonderful. Another thanks goes out to fading_princess for helping me out. But I do like to run this community by myself. It's just easier.

So, recap:

Community is still alive
Only on Hiatus until Sept. 1st


Results! :D

Voting // Challenge Forty Four [07|21|06]

Hey everyone, I'm putting up voting early tonight because I have to leave tonight before voting is usually put up. I apologize if you didn't get your icons in, but I don't want to wait til tomorrow because I work all day and it won't be up until after I get home from work most likely.

I am glad, though, that we actually got a reasonable amount of entries! I didn't have to extend the challenge. It's been a while since we've had just a week long challenge. Yay!

Anywho, on to the voting!

[ mood | tired ]

Hey everyone. So sorry about not getting the voting up when I was supposed to. I'm just gonna run this voting through Sunday. There just hasn't been much activity in this community, so I feel like it's dying. I'm trying to keep it going. So if you guys could please promote this community and help me out that would be great. I'll do some promoting of my own of course because it's my community. But for now we're still running, and I'm not going to shut down or anything.

But I forgot to mention that the community has been running for over a year now. Pretty exciting. :D Lol. Anyway, on to the voting.

Anyway, you now all have until June 30 to get your icons in.

__starkissed
[ mood | chipper ]

Current number of entries: 04

This week I would like you to make any icon of any SHIP from the show. I don't care who it is. It could be Ryan/Marissa, Seth/Summer, Marissa/Alex or you could spice it up and do Seth/Ryan, or your favorite couple or whatever. I'd love to see a variety. You can make up to five icons of whoever with whoever. No anti-ship icons though, I don't want to offend anyone by going against they're favorite couple.

Hope that all makes sense, if there are any questions let me know. If you need help finding pictures I can try to help you out.

Rules:
[1] You may use any pictures you want
[2] You may enter up to FIVE icons
[3] No animation
[4] Must meet LJ standards
[5] Enter your icon with the image AND the URL

Icons due Friday June 2nd @ 10:30 p.m.

Alrighty guys this is your midweek reminder for the latest challenge HERE.

There are only five entries, so I would love to see more. I'll try to get to some of the suggestions for challenges from the poll that was filled out a while ago, but they still don't seem to be getting much activity.

Are there any suggestions for challenges that you guys would like to see? Let me know in this post if there's anything else that you would like to do in a challenge.


(I've tried to get recent episode stills from this season's episodes but I can never find any. I'll keep looking. Maybe more recent photos will bring more activity?)
