Challenge XI [21 Mar 2005|12:22am]

yrch_monger

For those of you who didn't see the last post, this challenge will be running slightly in tandem (at least for a week) with Challenge X... which is due March 25th. Sorry for the confusion.

Well, the Fates have bestowed upon us all the perfect opportunity to enjoy an April Fool's Day themed challenge. Your task is to create a humorous icon with which to have us snerking our brains out. 

::Challenge XI: The Sporking Hilarious April Fool's Edition::

RULES:
+ Must be humorous/amusing/wittily funny etc.
+ Cannot be serious.
+ You can submit up to two (2) icons.
+ Any blending, animation, etc. goes.

Deadline ends Friday, April 1st at 12:00 AM (EST). Surely the planets have aligned for this one!

NEW DEADLINE ENDS: Friday the 15th at 12:00 AM, EST!

Challenge X Extension and Other Bits [19 Mar 2005|12:50am]

yrch_monger

We only have six icons, so... EXTENSION! New deadline for Challenge X is March 25 at 12:00 EST. Come on guys, it's not so hard. Surely some of you have some old Scottish proverbs hidden somewhere. ::singing:: You take the high road and I'll take the low road..." etc, etc. Well, maybe not.

Despite this little setback however Challenge XI will be up by Monday because it happens to fall on April Fool's Day perfectly! And if I don't do a challenge for that I shall shrivel up and die. That being said... Thank you for your time.

MAKE ICONS!

Challenge X [07 Mar 2005|06:53pm]

yrch_monger

Despite the fact that our poor Ewan is rarely allowed to show it off in his roles, he is Scottish, and as we know Scottish accent = sexy... generally. So to celebrate this utter Scottitude, your challenge this week is to make an icon proclaiming Ewan's homeland roots to the world. And perhaps even the farthest reaches of space if you see fit.

::Challenge X: Scottish Men Are the Sex::

RULES:
+ Must represent Ewan's Scottish-ness. (Kilts are not a must, but there are some very interesting photos out there of Ewan rocking one.)
+ You can submit up to two (2) icons.
+ Any blending, animation, etc. goes.
+ No sea ponies.

Deadline ends Friday, March 18th at 12:00 AM (EST). Shame he isn't Irish, this would be excellent for a St. Patrick's Day challenge.

Challenge IX Winners [06 Mar 2005|09:59pm]

I know what you're thinking, but I actually waited until tonight to post the winners so we could get back on schedule and yrch_monger can post Challenge X tomorrow morning.

Anyway, we had tons of beautiful entries this week. I honestly couldn't be happier with them. That's why it was so hard deciding . . . and perhaps why we had a three-way tie for first place as well as a three-way tie for second. As a result, there will be no other awards this week. XD

First of all, I would like to issue a long overdue and extremely sincere apology for the delay in getting the voting for this challenge up. Regardless of whatever computer/social problems might have been going on, it was completely unacceptable, and I beg forgiveness from the members of this community and hope you'll stay with us in spite of our my grievous mistakes.

Anyway, to the voting -

+ Vote only once.
+ Vote honestly.
+ Anonymous votes will not be counted.
+ Submit your vote as a screened comment to this post.

Sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry . . .Collapse )

Ah, that's much better. Not nearly as many entries as the last challenge, but I admire all your efforts just the same. ^^ Remember, there are 50 of you. ... I think. 

VOTING RULES:

+ Vote honestly.
+ Anonymous votes will not be counted.

V-O-T-I-N-G, what does that spell? VOTING! VOTING!Collapse )

I apologise for myself, but four straight hours of I Love the 90's does strange things to your sanity. Not that there was much there to begin with.

Challenge VII Extension [16 Jan 2005|04:41pm]

yrch_monger

Due to several extenuating circumstances, lack of participation, general confusion, and LJ's power loss, the showtune themed challenge is being extended another week. (New Deadline: Saturday the 22nd at 12:00 AM, EST)

I also decided to post two sample icons that I whipped up really quickly to further explain the challenge, since I'm sensing that several of you didn't quite understand what I was looking for. That's entirely my fault of course, I should have been a little more clear with my instructions.

You have two choices; you can either make an icon texted with showtune lyrics (SAMPLE #1), or an icon with an allusion to musicals in general (SAMPLE #2).

SAMPLES:

1.     2.

I only ask that you not use anything related to Moulin Rouge (picture or lyrical-wise) because I'm looking for something a little different than usual. Hopefully that clears everything up, and I hope you all sumbit an icon to this challenge. Remember, the more submissions, the more icons you have to choose from.

Challenge VII [11 Jan 2005|06:59pm]

yrch_monger

Well it looks like the mods have been experiencing computer troubles lately, but since mine has recovered from last night's mess, bronzeoliphaunt and I have decided to trade weeks. So she will be choosing the next two challenges and you are stuck with me... again. Sorry.

Since we all know that Ewan has a soft spot in his heart for showtunes, I thought it would be fun if we had a showtune themed challenge this week.

This doesn't mean that you have to text the icon, jazz hands or a little Vaudeville-esque style will suffice. But it wouldn't hurt to show a little razzle dazzle, if you get my drift.

RULES:
+ Texting or an allusion to any musical, or musicals in general, must be apparent.
+ You can submit up to two (2) icons.
+ Any blending, animation, etc. goes.
+ And just to make things interesting... you can't use any song lyrics from Moulin Rouge as text, nor can you use Moulin Rouge caps for your picture.

The deadline will be this Sunday, the 16th at 12:00 AM (EST). If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I'm not sure if this challenge is exactly clear or not, and I want to give everyone an opportunity to check first if they're a little unsure as to whether they're on the right track or not.

Back to Regularity [06 Jan 2005|04:56pm]

bronzeoliphaunt
All right, my GOAL for this community is to eventually get back to a regular schedule where challenges are posted on a Monday and end on a Friday. SO don't be alarmed (or more likely, think we're lazy mods) if there's no new challenge until Monday - unless I have computer trouble, that's when I'm planning to post it.

But for now, just so no one's bored, I'm going to issue a MINI-CHALLEnGE! (I'm the mod. I'm allowed to make things up). This challenge will end Sunday at 6 P.M. Eastern Standard Time, and the rules are as follows:

+ Make a small (or large; there are no size restrictions) promotional banner for the community.
+ Any picture of Ewan may be used. For pictures, we recommend ewan_daily and ewanmcgregor.net.

Anyone and everyone who participates in the Mini-Challenge will recieve . . . a banner. Yep, a personalized banner for EVERYONE. I realize that's not an incredible incentive, but I'm afraid we'll all just have to live with that.

Have fun, participate, new (icon!) challenge Monday!

Challenge VI Voting [01 Jan 2005|03:26am]

yrch_monger

We were inundated with submissions this time, and bronzeoliphaunt and I couldn't be happier. We were however wondering why there was a sudden influx of icons rather than the usual five.

Was it because the challenge was relatively simple?
Was it because you had more time?
Were you possessed?

In any case, we'd like to know. It would help us to run this community better, not only for us, but for all of you as well.

VOTING RULES
+ Vote for your favorite three icons.
+ Do not vote for yourself.
+ Vote only once.
+ Vote honestly.
+ Anonymous votes will not be counted.

VOTING IS FUN! ... Okay, gay.Collapse )

And don't forget to help us out by leaving some feedback about the community! Do you think two week deadlines would make more sense?
