This is just the beginning [02 Dec 2005|10:05pm]

OK so this isn't working is it? This comm seems to have died, and there doesn't seem to be much interest in competing in these challenges. Challenge 6 is now closed.

Moreover, icon_vibes as you know it.. is no more.. *insert dramatic pause*

dontlickit and I have been thinking, and we decided we need to take this community an entirely different direction. A direction other communities don't take, something more original than your average icon challenge.

We're not revealing our plans just yet, but keep watching this space! This is going to be especially interesting for all you people out there who love creating icons.

Until next time! Over and out =p

Your friendly mods

[ mood | anxious ]

Icons for challenge 6 are due tonight and we only have THREE entries so far!

*pleads* Pleeeeeeease submit your icons to this post. We are hoping for at LEAST two more submissions. If we don't get those, the challenge will be extended for one week.

The theme for this challenge is BLACK & WHITE, but your icons may have a splash of colour! Personally I thought this was quite a cool challenge, I mean, look at the icons already submitted!

Winners for challenge 2! Well done to the winners and everyone who participated. We were really impressed with the icons this week!

Also, since there seemed to be some confusion over how we calculate the votes, I'm adding something to the userinfo to explain it (and it's also explained in a comment to this entry).
