LotR: hope remains
Hi everybody! Long time no see. tumblr has basically stolen me from LJ for the past few years, but lately I've been thinking about starting another round at this community. I'm not sure if enough people are still around and would be interested in participating to make it worth it, so I figured I would post a poll before starting anything.

Would you be interested in participating in another round of lotr_lims?

Yes
16(94.1%)
No
1(5.9%)
LotR: to whatever end
And the Last Icon Maker Standing is...Collapse )

I hope you all enjoyed Round Ten. Thank you to EVERYBODY who participated, including the voters!
15th-Nov-2010 04:00 pm - Final Challenge Voting Reminder.
LotR: breaking of the fellowship
PLEASE VOTE in the Final Challenge if you haven't yet! Voting is really easy. All you have to do is pick favorites. I'd like as many votes as possible since this is what decides the winner! Results will be posted in about two hours.
LotR: full of grace
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU READ THE RULES CAREFULLY. If you don't follow the rules, I will NOT count your vote. Since this is the final challenge, we're going to be voting differently, so it's very important that you read the rules.

VOTING RULES:
- Voting will last 24+ hours. The results will go up on November 15th, around 6 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 icon that you think is the BEST for each of the three parts. You are NOT voting somebody off this time. You are not required to give reasons for your votes, but they are always appreciated. Remember, these votes will determine the winner of this round. Make sure you're voting for the icons that you legitimately think are the BEST.

- You will also be voting for the one icon that you think is the BEST OVERALL. Out of the six icons, vote for the one that you think is the best.

- If you are one of the final two, you are not allowed to vote for this challenge. Feel free to promote the voting in your personal journals, as long as you don't say which icons are yours.

- I will be adding up how many votes each icon receives. The person with the most votes will be the winner of Round Eight of lotr_lims!

Here's an example of how to vote:
PART ONE:
#6

PART TWO:
#3

PART THREE:
#5

FAVORITE ICON OVERALL:
Part Two - Icon #3

And the form (just copy and paste what's in the box, replace the #0's with the correct numbers, and replace 'Reason' with the explanation for your vote, if you choose to give one.):

LotR: hope remains
Rules:

- ALL icons must be submitted by 6 PM (EST) on Monday, November 15th. I'm giving you guys two weeks since you have to make three icons each. The voting will be posted as soon as you have both submitted your icons, so if you get them in earlier than that, fantastic.
-You must follow LJ's icon dimension rules: no more than 100x100 pixels or 40KB.
-Do not share your icons anywhere before this challenge is over. Do not submit previously made icons. Do not tell anybody which icons are yours. If I find out that you have broken any of these rules, you will be disqualified.
-Brushes, textures, and stock images (no people) are allowed.
-You can crop the caps however you wish. If you want to make an icon of a random pole in the background, that's fine, as long as you use the cap that's provided.
-Post your icons as a comment to this post. All comments are screened.
-If you have any questions, please post them in a separate comment.

Challenge Sixteen: FINAL CHALLENGECollapse )

Good luck and have fun!

Also, I upload the icons to my own Photobucket after they've been submitted. If you change your icon, please post it in a new comment and let me know so that I don't end up posting the wrong icon. Thank you!
LotR: friendship
Challenge Fifteen is over and we have to say goodbye to one more person. Thank you for participating and congratulations for making it this far!

by alliana07 with 8 negative votes. (-9+1=-8)

And the favorites!

Voters' choice:
by realproof with 7 positive votes. (-1+8=+7)

Now that we are eliminating one person per challenge, there is no longer immunity. And now that we're down to so few people, there is no Mod's Choice.

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.

Voting TallyCollapse )

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. You must have comment e-mails turned on to see my response. All comments will remain anonymous.

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.

Congratulations to our final two, narniacmr and realproof!

The final challenge will be posted shortly!
2nd-Nov-2010 04:33 pm - Voting Reminder.
LotR: shall be king
PLEASE VOTE if you haven't yet! This decides the final two, so it's important to get as many votes as possible! The results will be posted in about an hour and a half.
LotR: let them come
This voting decides the final 2, so we need AS MANY VOTES as possible!

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 24+ hours. The results will go up on November 2nd, around 6 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) icons. 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. With this ONE 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, you'll be voting for your ONE FAVORITE ICON. You don't have to give a reason, although you can if you like. ONLY CHOOSE ONE FAVORITE.

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

FAVORITE
#66

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.):
