We have two new affiliates, natalieicontest and sw_chorus! Check them out, join, etc!

Also enter Challenge 7 here. We only have two entries, and I'm not going to run the voting until we have at least 6.

Hello there. It's been a bit crazy here, going through two maintainers already, but I hope that this community will survive. I'm Kati, your new maintainer, and mommydearst is another mod.

I'm going to keep the same challenge going that the previous mod had, you can submit here. There's no deadline at this point, I'm going to go around and promote a lot, get some affiliates, etc, and then I'll end the challenge.

I've also changed a few of the rules, such as asking for a banner. You'll all get banners unless you specify that you don't want one. I'll be making the banners for the last challenge as soon as I set up my computer (it's in boxes after moving out of my dorm). Also, you ARE allowed to vote for your own icon. It'd be dumb not to.

Anyway, happy iconing!

*sigh* I'm sorry guys, but I can't keep moding this community. School is getting more and more demanding, and the lack of participation is really getting to me. I tried to make this icontest work, but it's not big enough to have decent contests and I don't think it's fair to those who enter.

I had this contest going for 2 weeks and we only got one entry. What point is there to keep this community open if I'm just going to keep delaying the same challenge?

So unless someone is up to it and thinks they can fix up this community, I'm going to close it down. Any takers?

<3 to you all

Challenge #6: Green Day [10 Apr 2005|03:57pm]

crazymol4588
[ mood | geeky ]

Hey all! I'm you knew mod here at gstate_chorus. hopelessfangirl is the co-mod, so you'll probably see her posting around here, too. I've loved Garden State since before it was even in theaters, and the music in it makes it that much more special.

So here's this week's song:

Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life) by Green Day
A pretty perfect song for Garden State, if you ask me. And the fact that it's acoustic makes it that much more amazing.

RULES (In addition to the basics)
-Blending is allowed.
-Manipulations are allowed.
-Animation is allowed.
-You must use at least four consecutive words.
-Please indicate if you want a banner if you place.
-Deadline for submissions is Friday, April 15, 2005.

It's something unpredictableCollapse )

Also, I'm looking for someone to make banners for the winners at the end of the week. If we get a couple who volunteer, then we can make some sort of system where you do have to do it every week. Please reply here if you can do it.

SOMETHING LIKE BAD NEWS [01 Apr 2005|09:10pm]

less_abandoned
[ mood | blah ]

I'm giving up my spot as Maintainer for the community. It's too much stress, and I can't keep being irresponsible with the posts like I've been. It's not fair to you all.

Unless there's someone that would like to take up maintenance, I'll put the community on hiatus until Summer Vacation, when I'll have more time to sit down and pay attention to the challenges and posts.

Please leave a comment if you're willing to take over.

Sorry this is so doggone late... I've been trying to get online at my grandparents' house for a while...

I'm thinking about maybe turning the community over to someone who can take better care of it. If anyone's up for the job of maintaner, please drop a comment.

Thanks. Please keep voting on CHALLENGE #FOUR. As of right now we have a tie, so I'm giving it one more day.

Also, get those entries in for CHALLENGE #FIVE. You have until Sunday evening, since I won't be back home until then.

[ mood | blah ]

You have until 11:59 tonight to get your entries in for CHALLENGE #FOUR as well as CHALLENGE #THREE. Right now, we really don't have enough entries to vote on for #four... so it'd be awesome if y'all got some in before the deadline. If not, we'll just go with the two we have so far.

Thanks, everyone.

CHALLENGE #FOUR // APOLOGY // REMINDER [14 Mar 2005|06:11pm]

less_abandoned
[ mood | stressed ]

I am so sorry about how late this is. I've been way too busy for my own sanity this week, as I'm sure many of you have been.

Challenge #Three is still open, and will be open until Friday, March 18th. Which is, conveniently, the same due date for THIS challenge. Ha-ha! So, without further ado..

CHALLENGE #FOUR LYRIC
heaven's not a place that you go when you die
it's that moment in life when you actually feel life
so live for the moment

and take this advice live by every word
love is just a hoax so forget everything that you have heard
and live for the moment now

- "The Tide" by The Spill Canvas

• animation or stillframe is fine
• post your icon(s) as a comment to this entry

EXTENTION CHALLENGE #THREE // NEW CHALLENGE ANNOUNCEMENT [04 Mar 2005|03:25pm]

less_abandoned
[ mood | flu-y ]

Okay. Here's the deal.

We still need more entries in CHALLENGE #THREE, but I figure that this community could do with another real challenge.

I'll post one up on Monday, but you still have time to make entries for CHALLENGE #THREE. I'll close the challenge up when there are enough to vote on. As of right now, we could do with more buttons. Therefore, I'm gonna let everyone enter two of each, if you so choose.

Okay? Muah, all. Get those entries in and promote the community. :) The only way this place'll get any more exciting is if a) we get more active members or b) the members we have now get more active.

<3

PS: (Sorry MODs. I know this is probably all confusing for ya. Drop a comment if you need clarification)
