Alice: Hatter Chair
Challenge 05 is over and we have to say goodbye to one person. Thank you for participating!


by leaute with 2 negative votes.


And the favorites!

Voters' choice:

by beauty_untold with 2 positive votes.


All negative and positive votes are added together to create your final score. For example, if an icon gets 5 negative votes and 2 positive votes, the score is -3. If an icon gets 6 negative votes and 4 positive votes, the score is -2. The -3 gets eliminated, even though the other icon got more negative votes. Positive votes can save you from being eliminated.

If your number is not listed, your icon didn't receive any votes.

If you would like to see the comments your icon received, please leave a comment with your icon number and I will send them to you via screened comment.

Most people gave reasons for their favorite votes as well, so if you got only positive votes, there's a good chance that people still left comments about your icon.

Challenge 07 will be posted shortly!
21st-Mar-2008 04:39 pm - Round 02 Bye Post
Alice: Hatter Chair
Comment to this post if you choose to skip a challenge any given week. If you don't comment to THIS post, I can't guarantee I'll remember to mark your bye down. Once byes have been dealt with, I'll delete the comment. Please provide the following information:

Username:
Challenge # you want to skip:


You must comment to this post PRIOR to the voting for the week, or you will be disqualified.

Each participant is only allowed ONE bye throughout the entire contest, unless you earn a second.

IF YOU PROMOTE THIS COMMUNITY SOMEWHERE AND LEAVE THE LINK HERE (before the voting for the first challenge goes up), I WILL GIVE YOU AN EXTRA "BYE," MEANING YOU CAN SKIP TWO CHALLENGES. (Note: Please leave the link here and not anywhere else.)

If you promote the community in a friends-locked entry, please provide a screencap.

BYES WILL NOT BE ALLOWED IN THE LAST 5 ROUNDS! (Otherwise it defeats the purpose of finding out who the best icon maker is.)

21st-Mar-2008 04:34 pm - Round 02 Sign Ups
Alice: Hatter Chair
PLEASE BE SURE TO CAREFULLY READ ALL OF THE RULES IN THIS POST AND IN THE USERINFO BEFORE SIGNING UP.

1. This is the sign up post for round one. If you would like to participate in RIVER - Last Icon Maker Standing (LIMS), please comment to this post. By signing up, you are agreeing to participate in the following contest and all of its challenges until a final winner is found. If you fail to participate in a challenge and do not have any byes left, you will be disqualified. If you will be going away/will not have internet access for a given week and don't have any byes left, let me know, and I will do my best to work something out.

2. The first challenge will be posted on Monday, April 21st. You may comment to this post/sign up until Friday, April 25th, 2008 (the day the voting for the first challenge goes up) by simply listing the username you will be entering with and the phrase designated in the userinfo. Keep in mind that if you wait until the 8th to sign up, you must also submit your icon that day. After voting for the first challenge goes up, no new contestants may enter.

3. Please help to promote. Spread the word to your friends and any communities that allow promotions! If you promote this community somewhere and leave the link here, I will give you an extra "bye". This means you'll have the option to skip two challenges rather than one. This must be done before the voting for the first challenge goes up.

4. Once you've signed up, make sure you add the community to your friends list. You don't want to miss the first challenge!

All participants will be listed under the cut. Your comment will be deleted as soon as you are listed.

21st-Mar-2008 02:38 pm - Round 01 Challenge 06 Voting
Alice: Hatter Chair
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU READ THE RULES CAREFULLY. If you don't follow the rules, I will NOT count your vote.

VOTING RULES:
- Voting will last 48 hours. The results will go up on March 23rd, around 3 PM (EST). You are not required to vote, but it would definitely be appreciated. You do not need to be a participant to vote.

- Vote for the WORST (or lesser quality) icon set. Vote according to the quality of the icons, NOT personal style preferences. (Keep the words "I don't like..." out of your votes. We want valid reasons based on actual quality.) Please try to be unbiased in your votes. Also take original cap quality into consideration when voting based on image quality. Keep in mind that the icon makers will probably be reading the reasons for your vote. Try to be constructive in your criticism, rather than saying that the icon sucks.

-Comment to this post with your vote for the ONE (1) WORST icon set. With this vote, you MUST provide a reason for your vote. If you do not 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 the comments your icon received after the voting is over. They will remain anonymous.

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

Here's an example of how to vote:
100: The texture is overpowering and the image is oversharpened.

FAVORITE
#207.

And the form (just copy and paste what's in the box, replace the #00's with the correct numbers, and replace 'Reason' with the explanation for your vote, obviously.):
