Welcome to ultimate_LIMS aka Last Icon Maker Standing. This is a community created by miss_sarac and detoxcocktails. Originally thought of and done over at disney_hush; we have modified a few things, and now we have this. The premise: a weekly competetion & elimination to find out who is the 'ultimate icon-maker'! This community for icon makers of everyone kind: every fandom, all skill levels.
(01.) First you must SIGN UP HERE. You have until Tuesday, FEBRUARY 28th(the day first round of voting goes up) to sign up. Then don't forget to join the community because you must be a member to participate! Don't forget to put "Q-tip" somewhere in your comment or subject to show us that have read the rules! This is important---we won't add you to the list until you remember the word.
(02.) The first challenge will go up Friday, February 24th. You will then have FIVE days to make & submit your icon to the appropriate post. If you have not signed up & entered by the time the first voting poll goes up, you will not be able to participate. Additionally you must enter every challenge until you are voted off. For this second competition of LIMS, you will be allowed to skip ONE challenge. If you any more than your one challenge or break a rule, you will be disqualified.
(03.) On the fifth day, voting will take place. However, instead of voting for your favorite(s) icon, you will be voting for your least favorite icon(s)! You are voting someone OUT of the COMPETETION.
(04.) At the end of the voting period, the person(s) with the most votes, will be disqualified from the contest.
(05.) All submissions MUST remain anonymous or you will be disqualified.
[x] This is a contest for icon makers of all fandoms and all skill levels. Everyone is welcome to particpate here. However, if you won't be able to handle getting 'voted off', don't join.
[x] Each we week will provide you with a different image. That image is the only image you are allowed to use. Stock photos, brushes, textures, etc are all allowed unless otherwise noted. All genres and subjects will be featured here ranging from the popular to the not-so popular. You must make an icon of the provided image whether you like that particular subject or not.
[x] All entries must remain anonymous! This means you cannot post your icon anywhere until after voting is over for that challenge! If we, the mods, see it anywhere before then, you will be disqualified. You will submit your icon via screened comment to the corresponding challenge post each week.
[x] You must participate in each challenge. If you fail to enter in time, you are out of the competition. If you know you will be away or unable to enter a certain challenge, leave a comment at the latest challenge post saying how long you will be gone & be sure to incluse your email address, and one of the mods will email you that particular image. This means that you must submit your icon earlier as well. You can find more details on this in the Rules & Info page: HERE.
[x} Each person will be allowed to skip ONE challenge provided they 'pimp' ultimate_lims somewhere. Full details on how to earn your 'skip' can be found HERE.
[x] The goal: to find out who is the best icon maker around (ideally anyways)!
