Welcome to spike_stillness, a Spike/James Marsters icon contest for non animated icons ONLY. This comm was taken from the idea of quebelly who runs buffy_stillness! Each week one blank will be chosen from a selection of three. Then members will make an icon from that blank, you can only use the picture given but you can edit it and crop it as you wish! After that, you post your icon in the comment section of the entry post and after that there will be the weekend for people to vote on their favorites. Winners will receive a customized award banner to display on their journal or webpage. There is no need for anyone but myself to have posting access, although you can comment to the posts in order to vote/submit an icon.
1. Your submissions cannot be animated! (It's kind of the point of the entire contest) 2. You cannot post your icon anywhere until the voting period is over, we don't want anyone stealing it now do we?!? 3. Make sure you only submit 1 icon per contest, unless I say otherwise!! No more than one!! 4. No voting for yourself. That's just a bit too self centric for me. 5. Make sure your submission is 100x100 or smaller! 6. Please do not take any of the contest icons without the creator's permission.
Submitting 1. At the beginning of each contest I will make a post where you can reply with your submission. Comments will be screened so the only people who can see your submission are you and I. I think that's fair :) 2. You will need a host that allows remote linking. Geocities/angelfire/tripod and sites like those do not work. You could try Photobucket.com or 250free.com ... 3. When responding with your submission, please include the image source, as well as the image itself. As in...
Timeline Submission deadline!!!!! Friday at 8:00 pm eastern time 1. The icons will be up to vote for on Fridays sometime after 8:00 pm. 2. You will have till Sunday night at 8pm to vote. 3. Winners will be announced and the new blank selection will be posted Monday.
1. You don't have to be a member of the community to vote. 2. Anonymous votes will not be counted. 3. Please vote for you choice for first, second, and third place. You must also state your choice for next week's blank. 4. The "Bite Me" award is like the moderators choice award. It goes out to an icon I think deserved to win that week!
