Switchfoot Icon Challenge [entries|friends|calendar]
Switchfoot Icon Challenge


This is a Switchfoot Icon Challenge community. It will feature icon challenges about those guys in that band.

Once a week, a challenge will be posted. The types of challenges will vary. One week we might use a certain base, another week a group of pictures, another song lyrics, etc, etc. Because of this guidelines might vary from challenge to challenge, so PLEASE make sure to read the instructions for each challenge!!! The most basic and important guideline that will apply to every challenge is this: do not steal or copy anyone else's icon and submit it as your own. We want to see what you can create. We also want original, creative icons! [And, yes, you can join and vote even if you don't make icons.]

New challenges will be posted at the beginning of each week and will go through Friday. Voting will begin on Saturday and go through until Sunday or Monday.

Submitting Icons
Icons will be submitted as comments to each challenge post. Include both the image and URL versions. (You might want to use photobucket.com to upload your icons.) These comments will be screened so that no one copies icons and voting is based soley on the icon and not the person who made it. To keep voting purely based on the icons and not the users, I also ask that you not post your submitted icons anywhere else until AFTER voting ends. I know it's hard because you want to share your icons, but just be patient! You can do whatever you want after voting ends!

Also, the number of icons that can be submitted may change from challenge to challenge (although, it will most likely be 1 to 3). Please pay close attention to the instructions for each challenge to see how many icons you may submit.

Voting will vary depending on the challenge and number of submissions. However, you will usually be able to vote for 1 to 3 icons (in order by your favorite). Your vote will be a screened comment to the special voting post.

There will be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners. There will also be one honorable mention/moderator's choice. Banners for winners will be provided.

I've finally realized I'm the worst community moderator on earth.

I don't want this anymore. If any of you do, let me know.
WHAT I MEAN: I want someone to TAKE THIS OVER. Otherwise, nothing is happening. I really apologize. I thought I could do the whole community moderating thing...but I can't and I don't want to. Right now (especially since I have NO graphics program anymore), I'm not into the icon contest thing. All I really want to do on livejournal is post entries in my personal journal and read my friends' journals...and that's it. So, if you want to TAKE OVER, be THE moderator...than have at it. Let me know.

Sorry [28 Mar 2005|08:38pm]

Ok, so this community is going no where at the moment. We had ONE entry for the last challenge. ONE. A very very good entry, mind you, but just ONE.

I'm sorry I've let it get this way. I jumped in when school was going slow & now it's picked up...so I need some help to keep this going (and I really need PARTICIPATION!!!). If you have an idea for a challenge or something, leave a comment.

Thanks to innocenceagain for making such a beautiful icon. Maybe we'll give you an honorary "really cool kid" banner...or just enter the icon in the next challenge. Whatever you'd like. And, I really LOVE the icon you made. :)

Challenge #2 [28 Feb 2005|08:18pm]

Thanks to everyone who entered the last challenge! You guys rock. :) The new layout is finally up, despite some difficulties. Come check us out -- switchfoot_icon! Now, onto challenge #2!

This week's challenge is based on both "Dare You To Move" videos. There are a few pictures/screencaps from the both of them and can chose whichever ones you like. However, you must use the pictures provided. You can submit up to 3 icons. Submit them in a comment to this post with both the image & URL.

I got your tension right hereCollapse )

Happy iconing! Remember all entries are due by Friday.

I'm letting the voting go until late tomorrow afternoon/evening (probably around 5 or 6). It's all really close with a 3 way tie or something...so, if you haven't, go VOTE!

VOTING! [26 Feb 2005|06:19pm]

- Vote for your top THREE icons! No more, no less. Or your vote will not be counted.
- No voting for yourself. C'mon guys.
- Votes will be screened.

Challenge 1 - 13 entries!Collapse )

FYI, in challenge communities, the mods who post the challenges will direct-link the icon for voting. So if that means you upload your entry NOT into Photobucket or something, then remember to do that. But do NOT delete your icon from your server until voting has ended.

Ok, really....The First Challenge [20 Feb 2005|05:45pm]

Okay, SCRAP the first challenge. No one submitted anything. Well, except me. haha. That's okay. I decided to go ahead and start another one..."The Real First Challenge." The other one was just...a joke. HA.

This week's challenge is based on the new in-the-studio photos at switchfoot.com. You must use the pictures provided (under the cut). You can submit up to 3 icons. Remember to submit them in an icon to this post with both the image & URL.

Switchfoot fans are the best! [14 Feb 2005|10:20pm]

Wowzas!!! 13 members in one day ain't too shabby! ;D Thanks everyone! Keep spreading the word!

I'd really like to start the voting for our first challenge by Saturday if at all possible. So, please try and get your submissions in by Friday if you can! Remember to submit them here as a comment & include both the image & it's URL!

And, muchas gracias to all of you who eagerly offered to make a layout! I think megliz123 will make one for now. But, feel free to make winner banners or anything really. Everything is appreciated!

Again, thanks. Looks like we're getting off to a good start. This is going to be fun!

1st Challenge [13 Feb 2005|10:46pm]

This is switchfoot_icon's first challenge!

We need a community icon! The winner of this challenge will have his/her icon used as the community's official icon. You may use ANY Switchfoot picture you want. It can be animated, have text, be cropped less than 100x100, etc, etc. No real restrictions EXCEPT, it must have one of the following somewhere on the icon: switchfoot_icon, Switchfoot Icon Challenge, Switchfoot Challenge, SF Icon Challenge, SF Challenge. You can submit up to 3 icons.

Submit your icons as a comment to this post and make sure to include the image & URL.

Since we have just started and do not have many members, this challenge will last longer than a usual one would. I will not start the voting until I get a sufficient amount of submissions. But I want to be able to start as soon as possible, so get those icons in!

ATTENTION: this community is also in need of CO-MODERATORS, AFFILIATES and a spiffy LAYOUT. If you would like to help in ANY area, comment here or at illbesquare's journal. Thanks!
