since kerravonsen is pretty busy, I am going to be 'taking over' this community - however, I can't do it alone and thus I am looking for someone to share the duties!
It wouldn't be too much work - I'll run September's challenge and the next co-mod could then run October's and so on. Running the challenges mostly involves writing the intro post for each challenge - kerravonsen has thought of quite a few things we could have as challenges, so you wouldn't need to be creative in that direction (though it is certainly not discouraged!) -, after that post, a few reminders need to be put up and of course the voting and the winner posts at the end of each challenge need to be posted.
You really don't need any experience with comm moderation for this, just a bit of time and teh ability to post things on time :)
If you are interested, just send me a PM. Thanks everyone :)
What should we do next month?
A normal challenge
Another amnesty month
Encourage people to make icons for help_haiti lightning round
Other (answer in comments)
I have no opinion
Open to: Access List, detailed results viewable to: Access List, participants: 10
The previous poll and comments indicated that some feel that the current amount of time given for challenges is too long, that it encourages procrastination. What length of time would you prefer?
Keep it two weeks long
Nine days (including two weekends)
Other (explain in comments)
(Note that I still intend there to be only one challenge a month)
Please don't disappoint me.
A lot of icon-challenge communities are fandom-specific, and while that's good, if one is interested in other subjects as well, those tend to get neglected.
This icon-challenge community is about stretching our creativity by giving challenges based on some style or technique, without saying what the icons have to be about. Icons can be from any fandom, or non-fandom, or whatever. I just ask that they be "work safe" as far as the content goes.
This is not an intense challenge community; I know you have a life and want to do other things as well. So each challenge will be monthly, lasting for a fortnight.
This is born of the LJ community of the same name http://community.livejournal.com/
( General Rules )
This community has not reached critical mass. It's been the same four or so people participating in challenges, and while you've all been terrific, of course it is understandable that you can't always participate. Unless we can get fresh blood in this community, there's really not much point in continuing. The obvious way of getting fresh blood is to promote the hell out of this community, but I don't have the time to do that. I'm quite happy to keep on running challenges (I certainly haven't run out of ideas) but we NEED a "publicity officer". Please? Someone?
Also I'd really like you to suggest challenges that you'd like to do. No, I haven't run out of ideas, but if my ideas are stupid ideas, then I'd rather get better ones.
In the meantime, vote in this month's challenge if you haven't.
And pimp this comm to get more people joining in the fun. 8-)
