*Rudeness will not be tolerated, period. If you have nothing nice or constructive to say, keep it to yourself or WE WILL ban you. You don't have to like someone's work, but you also don't have to tell them.
*All icons must be made solely for each contest, the only exception being altering a simple base you already made; as in a picture you did NOTHING to but crop.
*You cannot post your icons ANYWHERE until a challenge ends or you will be disqualified.
*You may submit up to two icons per challenge unless otherwise noted. You may submit just one, but no more than two.
*NO animations. Any other effects are fine. (Occasionally, a mod may allow animation for one specific challenge. However, this will be noted in that specific challenge.)
*New challenges will go up on SUNDAYS and end on SATURDAYS. Voting will usually go up SATURDAY night/SUNDAY and last for at least 24 hours. Winners will be announced shortly after. Note: If something is late, unless very late, please don't message us. We all have lives that don't revolve around this community. We will try to keep things on schedule, but sometimes things happen.
*Post all entries in both picture and URL form, as such:
