I added lots more! :D

so, I think for a next challenge, we will do a mini challenge, with say, 5 icons per person on a theme.

dunno what the theme will be (it will be simple, lol) but when I decide I'll put up an entry where people can comment when you finish your 5 icons. then I'll put up a big entry with all the icons and people can vote for their fav from each set.

that way, everyone gets a banner! :D

what do you think? I figure 5 icons is easy enough, right?

I started working on the challenge again. we're still doing the BC challenge.


check it out.

also, if any one else is doing the challenge, or has ideas for the community...please comment. be alive. it's really disheartening that I've been trying and getting no response as far as the community goes. :)

whatever it will take for people to enter the challenge, I will do it!! (how about I paypal people who do the challenge 5 dollars?? LOL)

so this place has been inactive, which is my fault in some ways but I think a good way to start it up again would be with fresh incentive.

I have no idea what is happening with the current challenge, but I think only MAYBE 2 people are doing it.

so, instead, or in addition to that, z3nyatta suggested we do a more weekly icontest process, where we have a smaller challenge, like 10 icons, and vote on them.

the way most icontests work is each member submits up to 2 icons on a theme and then all the members anonymously vote on which one should win.

but I do remember people saying it would be better to not compete, so I'm thinking what we could do, is I give you either a theme or some images, and each member makes, say 10 icons. then I post all the icons together, and all the members vote on each member's best icon in their set. this way, everyone gets a banner, and we aren't competing against each other, we are competing against ourselves.

I would post the challenge, then post voting, say, 2 weeks later.

what do you think? I need suggestions on how to reactivate this place. a new challenge didn't work, a co mod didn't work, so maybe this will. tell me :P

here is an example of what the challenge could be like, except with more icons and not all the icons of the same picture:

and here is an example of the voting, with some differences:

This is for those of you Breyer model horse collectors and/or the Rags to Riches fans.  I'm not sure how long ago this was announced but I found out today from scenceable's journal (and then went the website) that Breyer has made a Rags to Riches model!  It's on the Ruffian shape (which I think is very cool) and is beautiful as expected.  I only own Barbaro and Ruffian at this point, but maybe Rags to Riches will be the next addition to my collection!


EDIT:  I didn't exactly mean to post this here...I meant to post in go_baby_go but clicked the wrong thing.  I guess I'll leave it though!  lol

I have 13 icons done.


and also, I would like to announce that jldecker is now a co-mod here. :) hopefully that will help keep things active and running.

so, I changed the challenge idea, thanks to jldecker. hopefully, no one started it (except me, but I don't care).

I got ZERO response to the other challenge; this one...well at least I know 2 people will do it.

I don't know why it's so dead around here at the moment, but I hate posting to nothing-ness.

I like this challenge A LOT better than the boys vs girls one. it's breeder's cup themed.

if anyone did start the other challenge, and is really far or anything, let me know and I'll try to do something about it.

so, first of all, I posted the new challenge in the userinfo. the idea is a bit weak in my opinion, but I'm sure we can make it work well.

second of all, I FINISHED THE FAN CHALLENGE! finally. the last 15 icons suck, (in my opinion) but at least it's done.


next, I finished z3nyatta's banner for her tribute challenge.

banner under cut, comment when you get itCollapse )

and finally, this has nothing to do with anything, but I spent my whole day making this and thought you might like it:


it's a model of rags to riches with a carnation blanket :) lol, back to icon making now...:)

ok, so z3nyatta just finished her challenge...mine is well...underway...and I think thats it (correct me if I'm wrong) so I suppose it's time for something different.

now, I really need suggestions, because I have no idea what to do for the next challenge. so please please please someone suggest something. even if you think it's the crappiest idea ever. I don't care.

If I ever finish my challenge, I'll post it. I will likely do it sometime, but either way we need to get something new happening and bring this place back to life.

suggest away.

Hey, this is Val, I was sugar1480 until about 10 minutes ago.  I bought a rename token so I could change my username.  My old one was very outdated.  I'm posting both to let you guys know this (there's not many of us so you might actually wonder who a new person is!) and to post an update of my challenge.  I have nine icons to go and I hope to finish them this week.   Here's a link to my journal so you can see them: Clicky
I hope you all had a good day!  Good Night!
