Banners for Week 39 - Yellow [Saturday
April, 14th, 2007

aquahaute
A couple caveats:

The first-place winner for week 39 was m1ch1ru, who, as you can see by the username tag, has deleted her(?) journal. If you are still watching this community under another username and would like your banner for week 39, please comment and I'll be happy to do it.

The mod's choice for week 39 was by rabanastre, but as you can see in the winners entry, the icon doesn't appear. rabanastre, if you would like your banner for week 39, please comment and let me know where I can see it and I'll be happy to do it.

Therefore, below the cut are banners for karoru and _joha.

Below the first cut, banners for rabanastre (2x), nejlbana, rusalkatrix, and kanrinin. (There was a tie for first that week, but the banner for the other first-place-winner was made long ago by hocus.)

Below the second cut, banners for rabanastre and kanrinin. (I was the third-place winner that week so I don't feel comfortable making my own banner.)

Hope these are okay! I also have some banners done for weeks 39 and 54, which I'll try to have posted before the end of the weekend.

So I thought I'd spend today not working on my Chinese homework catching up on overdue banners. Here be the the second half of Week 44's banners, for oceanicblue and karoru.

I also got started on banners for Wk.46, but I can't guarantee I'll have them finished today. I'm having a texture-matching issue that's driving me crazy.

[Mod Post] Moving! [Tuesday
March, 20th, 2007
]

hocus
Well, it's finally happened: got the new fused community up and mostly running! What does that mean, exactly? That means that, for all intents and purposes, game_hush will be closing down. In fact, with the exception of overdue banner posts [which will be posted both here and the new community] there will be no new posts to this comm. If you would like, you may go ahead and take this comm off your friends list. However, I greatly encourage everyone to go and join the new community! [You will, won't you? Pretty please?] Because I am not horribly creative or original, the name is game_synthesis. There's no new theme yet, as I wanted to make sure there'd be enough members to participate, but there will be one posted either this coming Sunday, or a bit earlier.

So once again, the new community is game_synthesis, and I hope to see all of you there! :)

Should have caught this sooner, but my online time has been pretty limited of late. In any case, we have a three-way-tie that needs to be broken!

Please vote for your favorite of the following three icons; if your icon is one of the three, please do not vote.

A
B
C


In the meantime, Week 55 is also being extended. If you have the time or find yourself struck with inspiration, I'd love to see your entries here.

The new deadline for submissions is next Sunday, March 18th at 9PM EST.

Thanks to everyone who submitted this week (yay last minute submissions!) we have a total of twelve very awesome icons. (No kiddin'; you guys amaze me.) No Mario, but this was definitely a week for Link fans. XD

Howdy, everyone! I'm going ahead and posting a new theme because I'm putting Week 54 on a short extension just until Tuesday and I don't want to get too off-schedule. ^^; That being said, Week 55's theme is Multiplayer, and you are free to interpret it however you'd like, but I've outlined a few suggestions as follows:

1. Icon any game that has a multiplayer option.

2. Use two or more characters/mecha/etc. in your icon.

Okay, so that's only two, but you guys are more creative than I am, so have fun with this one! Interpret as you will.

All entries are due next Sunday, March 10th at 9PM EST.

ALSO: Please note that Week 54 - Nintendo is going to be extended briefly, just until this Tuesday, March 6th at 8PM EST. I'd like to see just a few more submissions, so if you haven't yet submitted, why not check out the submission post?

[Week 54 - Nintendo] Extension [Monday
February, 26th, 2007
]

hocus
Only three entries so far, which means we're in need of an extension. This surprises me a bit, because, well: Nintendo. (Mario fans, where art thou?) But I imagine it's partially my fault, for forgetting to post reminders. In any case, I know there are more Nintendo fans out there, so hopefully it was a mere lack of free time than some bizarre Nintendo boycott no one told me about. ^^;

In any case, the submission post can be found here, and the new submission deadline is now next Sunday, March 4th at 9PM EST.

[On another note, no new progress on the community fusing. I have created a new community for that purpose--tuition payments knocked my bank account into ze negative numbers, rendering the rename token idea useless--but at the moment it's nothing more than a name. I have midterms this and next week, which makes me think I couldn't have chosen a worse time to spring this whole fusion idea on you guys. So I apologize for, well, the bad planning on my part, and the overall general wonkyness of these past few weeks. Things will be changing. Eventually.]

Despite initial fears, we ended up with no ties this week! (Thank you, amazing voter turnout!) I can only imagine how hard voting was this theme; I had enough trouble just trying to select a Mod's Choice. Really, it's times like this I wish I could get away with giving out more placings. But then the banner makers would kill me.

winnarz!Collapse )

Congrats, guys! If you'd like a banner, please comment to this post saying so.

Oh, and don't forget to submit to Week 54! We have no entries thus far. ;_;

I was hoping to have gotten the community fusing over with this weekend, but as it turns out, I really haven't had the time. Maybe next weekend, no?

In any case, this week's theme is Nintendo. You can icon a console, a game, anything that fits, really.

Thanks so much to everyone who submitted this week! The turnout was amazing, and I loved seeing how each of you utilized the provided textures. I know things have been shaky recently--what with the lower-than-normal participation and slack modding--but I really can't thank those of you that have stuck with us enough. You guys are awesome. ♥

Good luck, everyone! A new theme will be up sometime Sunday, and we'll begin the new Sunday-Sunday submission period then. ^^

I apologize for the wait! We technically have enough entries to move onto voting (you guys have all been amazing this week!), but I'd rather try to get back on schedule than post a new theme without giving it a full week again. So instead, this week will have a short extension just to this Friday (so anyone who didn't have a chance can submit!) which will hopefully get us back on track.

I also wanted to thank everyone for their imput regarding the community fusing! You've all been very helpful and supportive, and as a mod, I couldn't be happier. ^^ As it stands, it looks like we will go on ahead with the fusing; the only thing I'm currently debating is whether I should fork out the $15 for a rename token (actually quite a feat for a poor college student with a tuition payment coming up...) or just create a new community. Hopefully I'll have this resolved by this weekend, but any further imput or suggestions are always welcome. ^^

In the meantime, Week 53's submission post can be found here. (I apologize to those of you who've already submitted! Please just bear with me for two more days!) The new submission deadline is Friday, February 16th at roughly 8PM EST. The plan is to get voting up early Friday night, but if something goes wonky, feel free to keep submitting until the voting has been posted.

[Mod Post] [Wednesday
February, 7th, 2007

hocus
[ mood | anxious ]

Attention members:

First off, I apologize if you have to see this twice; it's being posted both here and at game_lyrical, and since quite a number of you are members of both, you're getting double the spam. (Particularly since there have already been so many posts this evening...)

In any case, I've been thinking for some time about ways to not only boost participation but also to make this contest more exciting and interesting for all of you. Unfortunately, I am really not all that creative. ^^; However, what I came up with will not only make things easier on me as a mod, but also be appealing to all of you, as well.

What I was thinking of was combining both game_hush and game_lyrical into a single community (kind of like what happened with anime_hush and anime_chorus a while back, for those of you who remember). Things will run just about the same as they have been, except that there will be two themes per post (a lyrical and a hush theme) instead of just one. This doesn't mean you'll have to submit to both themes or anything, but you will certainly have that option. ^^ (For a working example of what I'm talking about, see anime_medley.)

In addition, submission times will also be changing (probably to a Sunday-Sunday submission period) so I'll be able to make post deadlines on time, instead of keeping you all hanging all weekend as I have been. If anyone has major issues with this though, feel free to speak up!

However, because I want to make sure everyone's okay with the idea I'm putting it to a vote. (The whole thing was to make things easier/more interesting for you guys, anyway. ^^) So really all I'm asking is that everyone please, please respond to this post with either a simple YES (for "Go ahead, community fuse away!") or NO (for "You and your community fusing are silly; I want my icontests separate!") If you have any comments or suggestions, or you just feel like chatting, feel free to do that as well! All comments will be screened for privacy.

In the meantime, there's still Week 53 awaiting submissions. Also, if you have any questions reading this post and you'd rather direct them to me in person, you can also email me at [becbet @ msn.com].

Thanks for reading and putting up with all the rambling. ^^

[ mood | content ]

This week's theme is one of my personal favorites, it's also hopefully an easy theme. ^^; In any case, week 53's theme is Textures. Simply put, I've provided you guys with some textures, and you make icons using them. (See? Easy, no?) You can use one, two, or even all of the textures if you'd like, and you can even use outside resources; you are not limited in any way in what other textures/brushes/etc you use. Subject matter is also entirely up to you; provided your subject is game-related. ;)

Since the theme was late being posted, I will tentatively say entries will be due this Sunday, February 10th at 9PM EST. If an extension is needed, it will be given. ^^
