:: w e l c o m e ::

Welcome to lotr_lims. We will have a series of challenges based on the Lord of the Rings to help us determine the best icon maker, or the Last Icon Maker Standing. Anyone is invited to participate, regardless of skill level. Please read the following rules.

Credit for the layout goes to gossymer. The header was made by alliana07.

The beautiful, high definition caps used for the challenges were made by extant.

01. SIGN UP HERE. You have until Monday, July 19th (the day the first challenge ends) to sign up. I would suggest joining the community, and friending it as well. That will make it easier to remember when challenges start and end.
02. The first challenge will go up on Monday, July 12th. You will then have ONE WEEK to make & submit your icon to the appropriate post. If you have not signed up & entered by the time the first voting post goes up on July 19th, you will not be able to participate. Additionally, you must enter every challenge until you are voted off. If you miss a challenge or break a rule, you will be disqualified.
03. Each week, you will be provided with a different image. That is the only image you are allowed to use in your icon. Stock photos, brushes, textures, etc. are all allowed unless otherwise noted. All movies and characters will be featured.

01. After the given period of time, voting will take place. However, instead of voting for your favorite icon(s), you will be voting for your least favorite icon(s)! You are voting someone OUT of the competition. You do not have to be a participant to vote.
02. When voting, you will comment with the number of your least favorite icon(s) and the reason for your vote. Please try to keep your reasons unbiased and impersonal. Vote based on skill, not personal preferences. You will also vote for your favorite icon, but no reason is necessary. These comments will be screened, but if you choose to, you will be able to view the votes your icon received.
03. At the end of the voting period, the person(s) with the most votes will be eliminated from the competition.
04. There will be a mod's choice and a voter's choice each week. The winner of voter's choice has immunity for the next challenge, which is explained in the next section.

01. The winner of voter's choice has immunity for the next challenge. This means that he or she still has to submit an icon (unless they request a bye) but cannot be voted off.
02. If the person with immunity gets the highest number of negative votes, one less person will be eliminated that week. For instance, if we're voting off three people, only two will be eliminated.
03. Once we get down to eliminating only one person a week, there will be no more immunity.
04. If there is a tie for voter's choice, both people will have immunity for the next challenge.
05. If the voter's choice winner requests a bye, their immunity goes to the mod's choice winner.

01. Everyone will be allowed ONE bye-week, meaning you can choose to skip a challenge and still continue on in the competition. If you choose to do so, comment to THIS post. We have "automatic byes", meaning that if you don't submit an icon and forget to request a bye, one will be used for you. If you miss a challenge and don't have any byes left, you will be disqualified.
02. If you would like an extra "bye", promote the community somewhere and leave the link at the bye post (see info here). Obviously, this is only valid before January 18th.
03. All entries must remain anonymous! You cannot post your icon anywhere until after voting is over for that challenge. If I see it anywhere before then, you will be disqualified. You may not tell anybody which icon is yours. If I find out that you have done so, you will be disqualified. You will submit your icon via screened comment to the corresponding challenge each week.
04. If you are going out of town at any point during the competition or will not have internet access, and you have no "byes" left, please let me know in this post. I'll do my best to work something out.
05. Cheating (for example: stealing or copying other people's icons) will not be tolerated. You will be banned without warning or debate.
