Uh, hi guys. This is long, long overdue and for that I apologize, but on the bright side, this is just in time for NEW FUTURAMA! WHO'S EXCITED? Damn! This is just to announce that your new mods, if they're still interested, are whamicon and sekitou! I hope you guys are less lazy than I am and manage to get this contest up and running again.

Mods! [24 Jul 2006|12:20pm]

supermeghan
Recently I recieved an additional two requests to be mods/co-mods, which reminded me that I have yet to choose one/some. Some say they "wouldn't mind" modding, others have all but given me their résumé, but I still can't choose the mods! Settling it with a contest seems unfair, and so does choosing them based on experience and whatnot. I've decided that I'm going to unscreen the comments in my last entry and just let the four of you discuss it. If that doesn't work, then I/we can try to think of another way to decide, but for now I'm going to give this a try.

Having said that, the offer is now closed. whamicon, tragedy, losttheskyagain, sekitou, prepare to battle it out! Just kidding, please be friendly.

[ mood | sorry ]

Heeere's the drill. gorthead and I are both fully aware that we suck at updating more than anyone on LJ, except for those emo kids who go on hiatus all the time. The point is, we feel kind of bad and think that we shouldn't be the ones in charge. We obviously can't handle it. So who would like to replace us? Be the mod, the Man? Come on, you know you want to!

Soon I will post the results of the last challenge, I swear. And feel free to point out anything else we've forgotten to post, and I'll try to take care of those things as well. Other than that, we are officially not posting until there is some news on the new moderator(s).

Have your résumés on my desk by tomorrow morning. And by that I mean comment on this entry at some time before May 1st if you want to be a mod. If you would like to co-mod, that works, just tell me that you would like to and with whom.

Election time! You know, up until now I didn't think putting a limit on the amount of icons one person can make was necessary. I'm going to, er, add that as a rule next time. GO!Collapse )

- Vote for three icons, favourite to least favourite
- Don't vote for yourself
- Voting ends Sunday at 9:00pm

Challenge 20 reminder [07 Mar 2006|07:27pm]

supermeghan
Sorry, I forgot to mention that last week's challenge needs to be extended. We have a million icons from one person, but unfortunately we need at least one more person to enter!

And, as for my question concerning voting for challenge 19, one person did ask that we go through with it. Unfortunately, that was only after someone else had asked me if she could post the icons she had made for the challenge in her personal journal, and I said yes. Therefore, I don't think we should go through with it. It's not very fair, in my opinion.

Challenge 18 Winners [26 Feb 2006|09:29pm]

supermeghan
Well, this is also long overdue. Whoops. Apologies, once again.

A little one-sided, eh?Collapse )

In addition, while this is mostly my fault for not posting reminders, too few people entered challenge 19 to warrant voting. There are enough individual icons for the voting system to work, but it doesn't seem right with only two people having participated. So, what do you guys think we should do? We can:
a) extend the challenge on top of the current one
b) let it go--that is, do not vote
c) make do with the icons already posted, and just vote for those

Challenge 20 [26 Feb 2006|09:04pm]

supermeghan
[ mood | sorry ]

Uh, hi guys. Please stop throwing those rotten tomatoes at me, they don't smell very nice. I think gorthead and I should never, ever take breaks from posting here, because it seems we always take months to start up again. Unfortunately, we only take these breaks because usually we are gone and can't possible stick to the schedule, and we are already bad at that even with consistent Internet connections. You know how we pester you guys to enter icons every week? Well maybe you should start doing that for us when we leave and don't come back. Not that this is your fault. Anyhow, here is the challenge that has been sitting on my desktop since before most of you were born. Every cap's got a photograph in it, but you are not obligated to use the photograph itself for your icon, if you find fingers and Leela's cleavage more aesthetically pleasing. Some of you might, who am I to judge? IS THIS REALLY A CHALLENGE?! OH MY GOD, IT IS!Collapse )

Rules
- Post as many icons per cap as you'd like
- Don't use or post your icons anywhere until voting is over
- Post entries with IMG SRC and URL
- Entries due by 9:00pm Friday of next week
- No holding grudges! Please!

Challenge 19 Reminder [16 Dec 2005|09:53am]

gorthead
[ mood | nervous ]

I am off to my biology exam (oh crap), but on the way, I thought I would take the opportunity to remind you to enter Challenge 19! We have had one person enter and there are now only 11 hours left in the contest.

I know this is a super-busy time for everyone, what with finals and the politically correct, secularized "holiday season", so what I would like to know is as follows:
Have you not entered because you just don't have time, which is completely understandable as I have been a bit overwhelmed too, in which case we will extend the challenge, OR is it because you don't like the caps, in which case we will end this challenge and post the next one.

Thanks for your help, and Merry Xmas everyone. :)

Challenge 19 [11 Dec 2005|10:52pm]

gorthead
[ mood | tired ]

We will now be resuming the "one cap from each episode, in order" theme. I've decided not to apologize for my absence, because I'm allowed to deal with real life stuff every now and again, and it turns out that senior year - between finals, projects, and University Applications of Doom - is HARD. I am really kind of grateful for this community, though, because as I am capping I have an excuse to rewatch my favourite episodes.

Same rules as always:
-Make as many icons as you like, using only these caps.
-Icons are due Friday, December 16, at 9PM EST.
-Don't post your icons anywhere before voting is over.
-Post both IMG SRC and URL as a comment.

That sure is one platonic view!Collapse )

...Wow. I asked for one more entry, was hoping for two, but got three! SCORE. That was pretty exciting.

Vote!Collapse )

Good luck!

Challenge 18 [05 Dec 2005|02:40pm]

supermeghan
Have you ever noticed how often things are glowing on Futurama? Well, that's the guideline I used for selecting this week's caps (hey, I told you I'm running out of ideas). And yes, gorthead said she'd do that one-cap-from-every-episode thing, but, um, she didn't post. I think she was away last night. ANYWAY, here is your challenge!Collapse )

- Post as many icons per cap as you'd like
- Don't use or post your icons anywhere until voting is over
- Post entries with IMG SRC and URL
- Entries due by 9:00pm Friday of next week

I was a little worried for a bit that we weren't going to get enough icons, but we did! Yay! And two new people entered the challenge, which is cool.

And here they are!Collapse )

Oh right, yesterday was Tuesday. Oops!

Please, please enter some icons. We have none so far, and I really don't want to go back to our old ways of extending deadlines--less challenges = less fun!

This week's theme is Lost in Space--caps that show the night sky.

Good luck!Collapse )

Challenge 16 Voting [27 Nov 2005|11:56am]

supermeghan
As you may or may not have noticed, there has been no voting post. This is for the same reason as missed updates usually happen--forgetfulness.

In my defense, the challenge post was made by gorthead, so I couldn't have the entries emailed to me, making it harder to keep track.

Anyway, my apologies. Voting will end Tuesday evening, and the challenge will be posted tonight as usual.

And here they are!Collapse )

We've been asked about the results for Challenge 15, and why they haven't been posted yet. The reason is that I don't think we have enough votes. When this community was just starting, three people voting would have been acceptable because that was the best we could get, and there weren't as many icons to vote for. Now, however, we usually get many more than three, and I'd like more people to vote so people have a fairer chance. So, if you haven't voted yet, please do!

Challenge 16 Reminder [24 Nov 2005|03:53pm]

[ mood | disappointed ]

Uh, guys? We have ONE icon. ONE. If you've got any smarts at all, you don't need me to tell you that that's not good. I don't like things that aren't good.

All I want for the American Thanksgiving is a few more icons.

All the cool kids are doing it!
