Challenge 3 Voting [

01. Anyone can vote. You do not have to be a member or participant of the community to, and it is greatly appreciated. (We will love you forever if you pimp this voting post to get more people to vote!)
02. We're going to be voting off only TWO icons this week. So, please only vote for the two you consider to be lesser quality. This does not mean a certain style you don't like, but the overall outcome of the icon and how it was made. You must give an explanation to why you voted a certain icon off. . . meaning constructive criticism, meaning no 'it's ugly' comments. Something more like 'the text doesn't match' or 'the texture takes away from the composition' are more appropriate comments.
03. When voting, you will also vote for your favourite icon. You can give the reason why it's your favorite, but you don't have to.
04. Please do not just do half of the voting, as any incomplete votes will not be tallied.
05. Each comment left here will automatically be screened, though the comments will be sent to the maker if they ask (the comments will ALWAYS remain anonymous).
06. Make sure your icons are not posted anywhere else before the voting is over--if we find out that it has been, then you WILL be disqualified.
07. The number of the icon is below the icon, not above.
08. marishna is disqualified for not submitting her entry.

Please use the following format when voting:

Lesser Quality Icons:
#31 - comments
#53 - comments

Favorite Icon:
#121 - comments are optional

Bye Post -- Round 1 [

[ mood | sleepy ]

Comment to this post if you choose to skip the challenge this week. If you don't comment to this exact post, I can't guarantee I'll remember to mark your byes down. Once byes have been dealt with, I'll delete the comment. You must comment to this post prior to the voting for the week, or you will be disqualified.

How byes work: each contestant automatically gets one bye. There is only one other way to earn a bye, and that is by making a post specifically for pimping spn_lims in your journal/community. You can earn up to two more byes by pimping (if you pimp in a very popular journal/community, then it's automatically worth two byes). If you did this, then reply to this post giving us the link to the post. We'll then add your name to this list of byes. However, byes CANNOT be used on either the first, or last two challenges.

The cropping was great and I really love the excluded colors and how the text matches nicely with the background. :)

Well, it's now the second round at spn_lims! Congratulations to those who are still in the competition, and thank you to those participated. :) There were some major issues with the last round, but hopefully everything will be clearer this time around. This round will be two weeks, to get back into schedule.

[ mood | groggy ]

Sorry about all the confusing during the voting, first I didn't screen the comments, then I posted my comment, and it wasn't screened. . . just, eh. And I don't know what was the problem with #7 and #15, because apparently they didn't show up for a few of you, it must have been their server. . . next round I'll upload them to my own or something.

So, the first challenge is finished. . . the second one will come up some time later today. Unfortunately we must say goodbye to the following 3 people for this round:

by made_by_lily with 14 votes.

by aracale with 7 votes.

by alleycatfish with 5 votes.

And now the favorites...

Participants choice:
by bessyboo with 4 votes.

If you would like to see your vote comments, please leave a comment with your icon number and I will send them to you via screened comment. NOTE: You will only be able to read them through your e-mail notification - must have that feature enabled to see my screened response. All comments will remain anonymous.

[ mood | hungry ]

It's finally the time to vote!

Unfortunately there were some people who did not get their entries in on time, and therefore will not be able to participate in any of the rest of the challenges. These people are: drankmywar, beeej, octagonal, partitioning, and marchsky.

So, now comes the actual voting process. There is no poll, but you must leave a comment here instead.


VOTING RULES:
- Voting will last 24 hours. The results will go up on March 13th, around 11 PM EST. You are not required to vote, but it would definitely be appreciated. You do not need to be a participant to vote.

- You vote for the WORST (or lesser quality) icons. Vote according to the quality of the icons, NOT the style you like the least. Please try to be unbiased in your vote.

- Comment to this post with your vote for the THREE (3) WORST icons. With these THREE votes, you MUST provide a reason to why you have voted for them. If you do not follow the rules and provide an explanation as to why you've voted the icon off, your vote WILL NOT be counted. If I find that your reasoning is biased toward an individual icon maker or an individual style you may not like, your vote will NOT be counted. Comments are screened, and you will have the option to view your comments after the voting is over. They will still remain anonymous.

-After you vote for the THREE lesser quality icons, you'll be voting for your ONE FAVORITE ICON. You don't have to give a reason, although you can if you like. JUST CHOOSE ONE FAVORITE.


Here's an example of how to vote:

31: The cropping is very distracting, and the image quality is very poor.
43: The text is really hurting the image, and too overpowering.
54: The image is oversharpened and too smooth.

FAVORITE
#55.

[ mood | blah ]

So. . . we only got a total of 17 entries out of the total 26, which would make this contest too short, so PLEASE if you haven't already turned in your submission, do it by tonight. This already messes up the schedule, but I'll just have the voting go for a whole week instead of just a weekend.

Sorry to those who have already submitted their's, and now have to wait longer.
