The losing group, however, must vote off a member of their own team.

lauranobaka said: "So, this is my resignation from this challenge. Liken me to Osten if you will, but I';m quitting. I don't have time in my schedule for a challenge that isn';t organized well, and I;m going away for a week and a half in the middle of July anyway. This is in no way a bashing of the mods, I appreciate everything they've done and it was fun while it lasted.

Good luck to everyone!"

I know that the past few weeks have been horrible. My effort into this contest dropped dramatically. For the record, it's not that I wanted this too happen... Personal problems have risen and I've had to devote my energy to that instead of the internet.

Here's my question:

We've all made it this far. There's been mix ups, slight drama, and outcasts... Do you want to pull through and finish this contest or do you want to resign and we'll get this all started back up in Season Two (there WILL be a season 2)? Everyone who is in the game now will automatically be selected for s2 if you all want to do this. That would give everyone the summer off. We would start back up around September. IF this is something you want to do - tell me now. If you want to keep going (I DO!) then we'll do it! The challenges are almost over. I know that the challenges have been more sporadic lately but I'm working on that...

What do you think?

Final Words [06 - 30 - 04 @ 11:41 am]


Saying I'm shocked is the understatement of the year. But oh well, it was fun while it lasted, I suppose. I'll be sure to try out when the next contest rolls around. :)

And, I'm pretty sure I meant Challenge EIGHT but it seems my fingers got the best of me. Good luck this week, guys! There are... 9 left now? :) Everyone else from this point on that is voted off will be on the jury! Woot.

Results/Challenge [06 - 30 - 04 @ 1:52 am]

I'm sorry, bentfire, but you've been voted off.


This challenge is NOT timed and is due on July 3rd, 2004 (Saturday) by 11:59:59PM. Your new tribe name is Slacker Chix (I thought I read somewhere)... Your challenge is to make an icon for you new tribe. There are no restrictions in this challenge!

Please post your icons in this post!

[06 - 26 - 04 @ 1:40 pm]

I would like to tell you who has been voted off but since only 5 people have voted, I can't. I'm not going to tell you what the votes are so far because that may or may not sway your votes. The remanding contestants who have NOT submitted a vote please do so in THIS post. Actually... How about we all just re-submit your votes. I'll give it till Monday just in case some of you are busy. New challenge on Monday, and it will NOT be a timed event. It will last all week like they used to.

[edit]: i'm not sure where ashley wants the votes, so i'm going to make this entry screened comments. but email it to the confessional place too, just to be safe. sorry for all the confusion and what not, i'm new at the making important posts gig.

Round Up [06 - 23 - 04 @ 1:03 am]

The icons were great this week. I happened to absolutely enjoy this round. To inform everyone of how voting is going for the judges... We are not allowed to vote for an icon that was made for us. So basically I'm not allowed to vote for an icon that was made for me... Make sense?

ROUND UPCollapse )

Challenge Seven [06 - 22 - 04 @ 12:17 am]


This is the first individual immunity challenge - I mentioned that this challenge would be a timed challenge and I didn't lie. These icons are due by TUESDAY at 11:59:59PM EST time. Basically, you have almost 24 hours to get this icon done.

This challenge is simple for the first single immunity and timed challenge... Here are the rules:

  • The icon must be re-defined (remember those icons less than 100x100?)
  • The icon must represent one of the judges

That's all there is to it. When I say it must represent a judge I mean... Pick a judge... Find out their interests... Make an icon. Period.

Submit each icon in a comment to THIS post. Have fun and good luck!

The results are in [06 - 17 - 04 @ 4:38 pm]

Don't worry - We are still taking the rest of the week off and we'll get back to the game on Monday but I thought I'd make your weekends a bit more interesting. I've finally got all the votes in for the outcast challenge.


Unfortunately to the outcasts they will not have a chance to make it back in the game. All three icons were amazing and really should great teamwork from all the tribes. Good job guys.

With all that said here's the big news:

The MERGE is finally here. Tonight I'm going to close down all the team communities. All posts may now be made in this community. Confessionals are still due each week (you are only required to do one, though). Also - the challenges are going to be changing a little bit as well.. There could be timed challenges, reward challenges, etc.

Monday's challenge will be the first immunity challenge as well as a timed event. I'm giving you guys 4 days in advanced to know about this so if you aren't here to participate then that just means no immunity for you. So if you NEED immunity, you better be ready on Monday.

Now that there is a new team we need a new name! It's up to you guys to create your new team name and colors. Get creative and make an icon if ya want as well. This is an icon community, after all.

Real Life [06 - 15 - 04 @ 2:55 pm]

Seems like the real world just happened again these past few days. I am extremely sorry things have been left unattended this past week. Unfortuneately work and numerous hospital visits (my dad is very sick) have gotten the best of me and with my computer problems (I may have to buy a new hard drive) it's just been one crazy week. Don't worry though... We'll just take this week off.

I know taking a week off is very unsurvivor like but I NEED this to collect things and get situated back in the game. I feel bad for leavin' y'all like this - Don't want to become bad host girl, but I gotta do what I gotta do.

This upcoming Monday will be a very eventful day to make up for the lack of survivorness this week. The results of this past challenge will be posted along with a surprising new twist.

Better Late then Never, Right? [06 - 12 - 04 @ 9:47 pm]

[ mood | creative ]

Well, the lovely brokina ain't here at the moment. I've heard she's having computer troubles ... or something along those lines so I'm gonna go ahead and post this week's submissions. Results, as always, should be forthcoming pretty soon. Good job all!


neverseenfire did the Britney and Carrie slide.
kirstee did the "Geek" guy from CSI slide.
faithlesssinner did the Chunk slide and animated.
bwlrbry did the Bill Gates slide.
and freeswimmer11 chose not to participate in the Outcast Challenge


We decided to go with a "family" theme to represent the fact that our team is almost like a family...

0nlymemories came up with the idea of the theme and also provided one of the cropped bases
jedispyder found/provided most of the screencaps that were used in the icon
emoterelish cropped the screencaps into the appropriate size and did some other editing to prepapre them for iconning
lenabee applied brushes, color effects, & text and animated the frames into one icon.

the entrie team chose from 3 variations to decide which one would be the final entry.

Pixel Chix

riversofsound - Picking out the image, including cropping and resizing.
lauranobaka - Coloring.
purple_foam - Textures.
cassie2003 - Found lyrics/quotes to fit image.
bentfire - Text.
_getoverit - Border/misc last brush effects.

Must Read [06 - 09 - 04 @ 3:30 pm]

I'm going to try out these confessionals. We all know what they are. We've seen them on Survivor, Real World, Road Rules, etc. It's a chance for you to vent about the game, a teammate, or talk about alliances, strategies, etc. Since this is our first time ever doing this we are going to ask that you do at least one confessional per challenge. You must email me (Asteps04@aol.com please put Icontest in the subject and include your livejournal name) these confessionals before the challenge is over. These confessionals will only be shared with the judges. All confessionals will be shared to the public after the game is over. Don't be afraid to be honest in these confessionals. What happens in this game stays in this game. There are people in this game that you may love talking to outside of it and love reading their journals but you can't stand in this game - And that's OK. So, with that said - Don't hold back in your confessionals.

Also - When the teams merge (which may or may not happen soon) both team journals will be shut down and all posting privileges will be taken away. You can remain in the communities if you would like to watch the next 'season' of Survivor Icon Challenge (there will be a next season!) but there won't be any posts made so it will pretty much be dead until the next season. All posts after the merge will be made in this community. Keep in mind, though, that when you are posting in this community it will be to only ask questions or concerns...

Don't forget that also for now on you will know all the votes cast but not who voted for you, just like in the actual show. So let's see those confessionals! One more day before confessionals and the icons are due.

When the merge happens, I'll explain in more detail new rules. There aren't many I'm just trying things out since this is everyone's first time. Let me know what you like or don't like in this game so I can make it better next time!

Challenge Six [06 - 06 - 04 @ 10:33 pm]


There are 10 members left in this contest. Originally, I was going to merge the two teams together to form one large team and then the challenges would be individual from here on out. But, I got to thinking and figured - That's really not sure a great idea at the moment. I have a better idea. There's going to be one more challenge before we make this an individual contest.

  • Each team must submit one icon.
  • Each team member must have put something into that icon. (a brush, a lyric, a picture, etc...)

That's all the rules there are this week. We are giving you open range to pick any themes, quotes, lyrics, pictures, etc... The only catch is that you have to work as a team and make one icon as a whole.

Oh, yeah... Before I forget. Instead of only Pixel Chix and Slackers playing this round... Meet the Outcast team.


These guys have been brought back from the dead and are here to compete in the hopes of one more chance of making it. Here's the deal, you guys. If the Outcast team places in 3rd place then nothing happens and they go away and that's that. If the Outcast team places in 2nd then the losing team will vote out one member of their team and the Outcast team will vote IN one member of their team. If the Outcast team places 1st then both losing teams will vote out one member of their team and the Outcast team will vote back in two members from their team. It's sneaky, it's mean, it's vindictive. It's awesome. Good luck to all THREE teams this week. This challenge should be harder than you think since EVERYONE must work together.

P.S. This was posted an hour and a half early because I felt bad for last week because that would have probably happened again (me being late and all) and because I'm just excited about this challenge.

Important Notice [06 - 05 - 04 @ 9:06 pm]

In a couple weeks the challenges will become individual and your two teams will soon become one. A few things will be changing...

One // For now on, when we have "tribal council" the votes will be shown to you all. What I mean is that you will know if votes were cast against you but, of course, not who voted for you. Much like in the actual show I will make a post with all the names that were voted against.

Two // There was talk of having to do confessionals but I have to figure out a way for just the fans to see them and not the actual members still in the game. We'll see what happens.

That's really about it so far. See you guys on Monday for a new challenge!

Round Up [06 - 04 - 04 @ 1:02 am]

The icons were great this week. The Pepsi vs. Coke challenge turned out nicely. Not quite sure how this weeks voting is going to turn out but you'll know by tomorrow. Great job everyone! Amazing icons! Take a breather... Next weeks challenge is going to be tough.

Challenge Five [05 - 31 - 04 @ 10:09 pm]


This next challenge is a bit different. As far as I've seen - there are no icons of this nature on livejournal... That's why this is so much fun! I'm calling this challenge the Pepsi vs. Coke challenge. Pixel Chix you get the beverage Pepsi and Slackers you get the beverage Coke. Here are finalized rules:

  • Your team soda must be incorporated in each icon.
  • Each icon must be a re-defined icon (i.e., it can't be the normal 100x100)

As far as the images/quotes/etc... you use, I don't really care. As long as it has your team beverage and isn't 100x100 then you're fine. Have fun with this challenge! With all that said...

Which soda is better? Pepsi or Coke? I guess we'll find out by Thursday!
Good luck to everyone.

For the icon in question... [05 - 28 - 04 @ 10:28 pm]

bentfire: I explained in the post in the fan community -- I used a black color layer on top of the one that turned it 'sepia', or whatever you guys are calling it. Thus, making it black and white. I did lower the opacity on the color layer, but only to 85%, so it retained the black and white qualities.

So I really don't know what that means. There's a lot of numbers and layers and such but I'm assuming that's a B&W icon by the way she's describing how she made it. Either way, the winner is still Slackers. But I'm glad that's all cleared out now.

For Pixel Chix peace of mind: Slackers didn't win because there was one icon in question. Slackers won because the majority of the judges felt that this week was finally their week to shine. Though we are all a bit tired of the themes, this week seemed to fit and the icons used great screen caps and quotes. Well, not that Pixel Chix didn't use great screen caps and quotes... Hell, this is a lose/lose situation.

It's all cleared up now. For now on if their is an "icon in question" I'm sure one of the judges will pick up on it. If nothing is said and you still feel as though something isn't right well then let us know. But there's a reason why this community has 5 judges...

Results [05 - 28 - 04 @ 10:15 pm]

Before I let y'all know who the winner was I'd like to say something about all the fuss over bentfire's icon. I don't make icons... Those who don't make icons make crazy contest communities like this one. So, because I don't make icons, I don't know all the little tricks you could use to create 100x100 works of art. So with that being said, I don't really know if bentfire used a B&W icon. Personally, it does look sepia or whatever. When I went to vote this week for the winner I used everyone's icon but bentfire because to me, it wasn't B&W. Although it's a beautiful icon and it very well could be an extreme version of B&W that I'm not aware of. Hers did not count in my vote this week.

The winner of this week is, for the first time, Slackers. To be honest, all the judges are getting a bit tired of the useless theme idea (it worked well for the Fandom week because it fit) but nonetheless, Slackers overall did pretty well for themselves. Once again, it was a close call and everyone had amazing icons (bentfire's included)... So, congratulations to Slackers for their first win.

Round Up [05 - 28 - 04 @ 1:09 am]

This weeks challenge turned out pretty well and, once again, I know it's going to be a very close call. And, just as a reminder to both teams: If someone on your team has to forfeit a contest because they are not able to make the icon, do not have the resources to make the icon, did not get a chance to make the icon, etc. It will not count against the team as a whole but only to the individual who did not complete the contest. I was peeking at the conversations in the Slackers journals and saw that freeswimmer11 wasn't going to be able to do this weeks challenge (although I see that you did)... But just wanted to let ya know how that goes. AND... For Pixel Chix, As far as icons go, anything (as for content, graphics) goes as long as you abide by LiveJournal's rules, standards, and regulations. I saw someone make a post about the language on their icons... There's your answer! :)
