This community is on an INDEFINITE HIATUS! Please contact wilde_moon with any questions.
We have two types of challenges, Weekly Challenges and Random Challenges.
Weekly challenges consist of a picture challenge and a quote challenge. You may enter one icon for the picture, and one icon for the quote. They will go up on Sundays (frequency fluctuates depending on participation levels as well as mod availability). You will have at approximately five to twelve days to enter challenges (due dates and reminders will be posted for each challenge). Polls go up on Fridays, and stay up for approximately 24 hours. Do not vote for yourself! First, second, and third place winners will be announced, along with a Liquid Diamond (Mod's Choice) if there are enough entries.
Random challenges are just that. They go up any time a mod feels the need and can consist of anything. All rules and deadlines for random challenges will be in the post.
If we see an icon that doesn't fit the guidelines we will comment to let you know and give you a chance to fix it. If you have any questions, please ask!
Entries are submitted via comments to the challenge post(all comments are screened). Reply to the challenge post with your icon and the URL, like so:
Do not use icons you have made before, and do not post your icons anywhere else until after the winners have been announced. Please make sure your icons fit LJ standards(100 x 100px and 40kb and Files MUST be in .jpg, .png, or .gif format)!
The given photo must be the focus of the icon. Text is allowed, but not required. If you use the given quote on the given picture, it will only be entered with the picture challenge. Animations are also allowed, but the original image (in whole or in part) MUST remain throughout, with the only exceptions being text or transitions to blank backgrounds.
You must use the entire quote, and you may not expand on it. The ENTIRE quote must be visible. You have to find your own image(s) for this one. Remember, any icons submitted using the original (picture challenge) photo will be submitted into the photo challenge, not the quote challenge. Tori Amos does not have to be featured in the image for the quote challenge, but no other fandoms (no celebrities, no movie/tv stills) may be featured in them. Namely, if you don't use a Tori photo, stick to stock images.
This community is only for challenges. The only people with posting access are the maintainers and moderators. If you wish to share your icons, please visit toricons.
This community does not contribute to the LJ recent images feed. To remove your own journal from these feeds go to The Admin Console and in the box under "enter commands" type: set latest_optout yes and click on the execute button. Make sure that you are logged in to LJ when you do this.
If you run a community, type: set for communityname latest_optout yes, replacing 'communityname' with the plain text name of your community (no lj code). i.e. set for liquid_running_ latest_optout yes
