After much thinking and consideration, I've decided that I'm going to close kate_ichallenge. This is really hard for me, as this was the first icontest that I ever started...but there just isn't enough participation for it to go on.

Having said that, I encourage ALL of you to go join lilly_stillness, and participate there. I've just been named mod there, and starting next week, there will be an Evangeline Lilly contest AND a Kate contest. So don't worry...we're not abandoning our beloved Kate. And I am NOT closing kate_ichallenge in favor of lilly_stillness. I just don't feel that there is enough participation to carry on weekly or even bi-weekly challenges.

andraste_tree, I tried contacting you before, but if you would like to take over kate_ichallenge completely, I have absolutely no problem with that. Feel free.

I've loved being a mod here, and I hope that all of you will join lilly_stillness so that I can continue being your mod.

Much love,
mareliz

Alright. I want to run something by you guys. I've been thinking about this for some time now, but I wasn't sure it could be done. How would you feel about doing a really really special contest? Like there are 6 or 7 different categories and you can make one icon for each. And you have lots and lots of time to do this, so whenever you make one of them, you can just comment with it. And if you make another one like 3 days later, you can just comment with that. Okay, am I making any sense? Lol then we vote for each category and there are first and second place winners for each.

Now we could do this several ways.

1) the six/seven categories could be different episodes that YOU vote on. I put up a list of all the episodes and you vote for a few and the six/seven episodes with the most votes make up the categories. Then you make one icon from each of those episodes.

2) we could do different themes. For example: 1)happy 2)mad 3)sad 4)scared, etc... And you can pick any caps you want...as long as they go along with the theme. Sorta like challenge 5b that we just did...just lots more themes and lots more time.

Now, my question is: can this be done? Will you guys actually participate? Is this just going to be a waste of time and I'll only recieve a couple entries? This is where YOU come in.

PLEASE take the time to vote in this poll. I'm hoping that this challenge is something our members can get really excited about, so I really need your input. And if you have ANY questions whatsoever, comment and I'll try to explain it better. I've seen something like this done in whedonosity, so I didn't make this up, but this is only one character, whereas in whedonosity, you had all the characters in the Jossverse.

andraste_tree couldn't make the banners for challenge 4, so I made them. Warning: I was in a hurry so they aren't that great...

Special Challenge--Layout Challenge [19 Jun 2005|03:28pm]

mareliz
Alright. About 5 of you said you would participate if we had a layout challenge, and I think that's enough, so I'm counting on around 5 entries.

Layout Challenge:
Make a header only for kate_ichallenge.

Rules:
1. Must be wider than 550 px, but nothing too huge.
2. Must be shorter than 400 px (300-350 is good).
3. The text on it should be: "Kate_ichallenge". If you want to put anything else on it, say "An Icon Challenge" or something along that lines.
4. Your name SHOULD NOT be on it anywhere.
5. Entries are due Friday, July 1, so you have around 2 weeks for this.
6. A matching icon is appreciated, but not necessary. If you don't submit one, I'll make one that looks similar to your header.
7. IT MUST HAVE ONLY KATE ON IT. No other characters.
8. You may only use screencaps for this, but promo pics before each episode are okay. In other words, she has to be in character. So no Evey pictures from magazines or anything. She must be in character, in an episode.
9. Comment to this post with your icon (if you make one) and the url to your header. I only need the url. Comments will be screened.
10. I'll do the coding and the rest of the layout. So I only need a header.

ETA: Only ONE header per person.

For screencaps, try Lost Media, or Evangeline Lilly Fan. Keep in mind that in order to see screencaps from Evangeline Lilly Fan, you have to register on the site.

Have fun with this, guys! I know we have some extremely creative artists here, so I can't wait to see what you come up with! :)

And if you haven't already entered challenge 5, then you have until Friday to do so. :)

You've got until the end of the day to make icons for challenge 4. We've received 6 beautiful entries, but we'd really like some more! So go enter here.

And since we've been really low on participation, would you guys like kate_ichallenge to:
A. take a hiatus until season 2 starts
B. instead have 2-week challenges
C. go on having 1-week challenges
D. go on having 1-week challenges but with some variety (themes, lyrics, etc...)

Comment with your answer. But if you choose C or D, then please try to participate more. I don't like extending challenges.
