Unfortunately, the judges do not need to vote on this weeks challenge. I'm a little bit disappointed at the turnout of this week. I'm upset that marieamethyst took the time to submit an application but didn't follow through for team one and left them to make up for the slack and I'm also upset that team two didn't submit their final icon in before midnight when I know that they had them finished and I have yet to find out what their team name is and I made a post in both team communities. It may be cruel, but you all know the rules and I'm not going to back down because I feel sorry for anyone because once it happens it'll continue to happen. le sigh.

This weeks winner is Pixel Chix! Congratulations, you are saved from voting someone off your team (however, if marieamethyst doesn't show up by Sunday she's GONE). Team Two, I will be posting a poll in your community journal shortly for you to vote off someone from your community. Please keep in mind why you lost this challenge. Your icons were amazing (as were yours, Pixel Chix) but a few members from your team didn't send in their icons and that's why you lost.

On Monday, May 10th, I will announce who was voted off as well as the new challenge. Awesome week you guys! Take a few days to relax, mingle, and make alliances! :)

To clarify some things

There are two and half hours left (EST time) for the teams to submit their remaining icons. In the cut below are all of the icons so far. For those of you who have not submitted your icons yet please do so in the first Challenge One post. Thank you!

That was from a couple posts back letting you all know how much time was left and some other news...

To submit your icons in this challenge just comment to this post with what team you are a part of (team 1 or 2 for now) and your icon. Simple as that. You have until Friday, May 7th at 11:59:59PM EST time to submit your icons. Good luck!

And that was apart of the original challenege post and you'd think people would know that the icons were being submitted in the ORIGINAL challenge post because not only was everyone else doing so, it is also in the rules, which by the way, you all have read.

I don't mean to be mean or brutal and I don't want to piss anyone off. However, I feel as though that is going to happen anyways. It's a game and by rules, Pixel Chix completed everything they had to do. They even made up for the slack of Marie by submitted another icon (I believe I talked to _getoverit about all that confusion). If at all, at any time, you are confused or don't know what you are supposed to do then e-mail me or you could personally message me at tiddlebit04. I'm sorry I didn't see the comment that you made earlier lenabee. That, obviously, was my bad if it was posted in the main community. If it was posted in your team's community I try not to comment to those... That's why I created team communities - For the teams to help each other out and communicate.

Once again, I'm sorry about all the confusion. Hopefully, things will become more clear after this post. I'm going to re-post the rules in an LJ-Cut below so that from now on there will be no confusion. Please re-read the rules and if you still have any questions then let me know!!

Mod Post

prevgirl made a good point over on the fans community (_icontest_fans) ... and us mods have decided that we're going to give this a try. So yep, everyone out there who wants to get the goods on what's happening behind the scenes go ahead and sign up for the team communities: _icontest_team1, _icontest_team2

We know that there are some devious methods that contestants from one team can use to join the other team, but we just hope you refrain from such practices because if brokina or I hear or find that anything of that sort has happened, guess who's out of the game ... YOU! We're doing this as a favor for everyone who's being a spectator this round because we want everyone to enjoy the game. So, those of you who aren't contestants, go ahead and sign up for the two team communties. You won't be allowed to post, but you will be allowed to view the entries. Please do not do anything to interfere with the proceedings. Thanks!
