Welcome to lookingback_ic, a vintage icon challenge community. Challenges will primarily focus on the twentieth century, but occasionally will extend farther into history.
Your moderator is djmustangsally, also mod at trekicontest, sttos_stills, and hunger_icontest.
This community was created following icontest and all others like it.
Types of challenges that will be run:
- visual media
- special challenge
These will rotate weekly, not necessarily in this order. Have a suggestion? Please comment here with ideas!
16: Fall // Voting
17: Travel // Voting
18: Music of the 20th Century // Voting
- New challenges are posted every Sunday. They are open for two full weeks. Icons are due after two following Sundays, 10 pm EST.
- Voting will open late Sunday or Monday. Voting is open for approximately five days, until Friday evening, in which winners will be posted shortly after.
Provided there are enough entries, there will always be a first/second/third place winner, and a mod's choice (the Spotlight Award). If there are too few entries, we will vote for Best Icon. Votes are weighed: first choice gets 3 points, second choice gets 2 points, and third choice gets 1 point.
Occasionally a special category or special challenge may be included as well.
The mod may participate as harmony033 (my regular LJ, for non-modly purposes). However, the mod will NEVER receive preferential treatment or the Spotlight Award.
- All icons will be submitted by screened comment to the original challenge post.
- Please include icons in this format: image and URL.
Feel free to use this form to help you. Just replace URL with the direct link.
- Icons must be uploaded to a site with direct linking (i.e. Photobucket, tinypic, etc).
- Members only may participate in challenges; anyone may vote. If you have an OpenID, just message the mod and you can participate.
- Do not post or use your icon until voting ends for anonymity purposes.
- Do not vote for your own icons. Do not get others to vote for you.
- Icons must fit LJ requirements: up to 100x100, 40kb, GIFs, PNGs, or JPGs.
- All icons submitted for challenges must be original creations for the specific challenge only.
- Only the mod has posting access.
- If you would like to take or use an icon, ask first. Post a comment on the icon's challenge entry post and the maker will be contacted.
- Always remember, this is for fun. No flames or otherwise rudeness, please.
