So, participation in the latest porn battle made me realise that we still have keen and eager members of this community. It's with that in mind that I bring to you our latest challenge. Everything we've done so far has been fic-based, so this one will be a little different. Drum roll, please...
An icon rumble is an icon challenge where participants submit earn points for the icons they submit. The winner is the person who has the most points at the end of the round. If you're really unfamiliar with how this works then I suggest taking a look at plusone_rumble or torchwoodrumble.
There will be ten weekly challenges where you will be asked to submit ONE icon (unless the challenge states otherwise).
Each challenge will be focused on the Doctor and/or Martha. A challenge will consist of working with specific screencaps, and episode challenge or anything along those lines.
Points are awarded for each challenge: 3 points for 1st place, 2 points for 2nd place and 1 point for 3rd place.
You will automatically receive one point for entering the challenge. You will also receive one point for voting.
After all ten challenges the person with the most points wins.
You must enter the first challenge. After that you can miss a challenge. However, if three consecutive challenges are missed then you will be disqualified.
If you want to participate you must sign up by commenting to this entry.
Each challenge lasts one week and each new challenge will be posted on a Sunday.
All entries must be brand new icons and must be your own work.
Do not post your icons elsewhere until voting for that challenge has ended.
Icons must fit LJ standards: 100x100 px, 40kb, .jpg, .png or .gif.
Make sure you read the rules for each challenge as they may differ week to week.
You do not need to be a member of the community in order to participate, but you may wish to watch it so you know when a new challenge and voting is posted.
The voting period will last two days.
You will be asked to vote for your three favourite icons, in order, as well as the icon which you think fits that week's special category.
ANYONE can vote; you do not have to be participating in order to do so.
If you enter an icon then you must vote. (Remember you get a point just for voting so it is worth your time.)
You cannot vote for your own icon and you must not ask your friends to do so either.
In order to get this rumble really working we're going to need a number of participants so I'm going to ask you to promote this yourselves. If you promote this in your own journal or your own community you will receive 3 bonus points. To receive these points you must leave a comment to this entry with a link to your promotion or a screencap if the post is locked.
Feel free to copy this code to promote:
Now you have read the rules you are ready to sign up by leaving a comment to this post*. If you have any questions then please feel free to ask them here as well.
The first challenge should be posted Sunday 4th October.
*So that I know you've read the rules thoroughly, your comment to sign up must include the quote, "She was brilliant."
