*shifty eyes* check it out - unrelated pimping! [23 Jul 2006|08:06pm]

3valve
Sorry to be using this slightly neglected community for pimping, but I know some of you are actually Harry Potter fans, so hopefully this still catches your eye! :)



Looking for a DIFFERENT Harry Potter sorting community? Check out dimicatio_fuga, the Second War Community that offers something different than simple house stamping. Are you and Order Member or a Death Eater? Participate in contests that range from writing articles or fics, to graphic designing DVD covers or icons. Test your knowledge with trivia and fight each battle to earn points for your camp. Who will win? It's up to you!

Feel free to ask questions about the community, and I'll answer them the best I can. If you apply, mention me in your application (I'm a Death Eater) so I can earn points! :)

You know you want to join. I'm a graphics mod and a Death Eater leader, and polarlucky Liz is in the Order of the Phoenix, so you already know it rocks. Hehehe. ;)

Update. [28 Jan 2006|11:41pm]

3valve
[ mood | frustrated ]

Okay, yes, I know this is later than the usual Thursday voting post; however, as many of you probably didn't notice, there was no Thursday voting post because there was nothing to vote on. One person submitted three very lovely icons, and for that, we thank her. We also apologize for the fact that you didn't get a chance to compete, because I'm sure you would have done very well. I will unscreen that comment for anyone who wants to see them, because they deserve to be shared. :)

This post is probably pointless, because I don't think anyone actually reads these posts. Nonetheless, I feel it would be irresponsible not to let you know that the community will be going on an indefinite hiatus until there is more interest. How will we know there is more interest? You will comment on this post and let us know you don't hate us; or at the very least, that you're interested in making icons again.

I don't mean to be short with you, but putting time and effort into a community is very frustrating when no one participates, or even replies to desperate pleas for suggestions on how to improve the community. I will be moving to the opposite side of the globe in another couple of weeks, and Liz is busy completing her senior year of college right now; so it is much better for both of us if we don't waste our efforts with a community that is currently going nowhere.

I hope to be posting again in the near future. Don't forget to leave a comment if you want the contests to start back up again. When we receive enough requests, it will continue.

<3 Jacqui

Reminder [24 Jan 2006|01:06pm]

[ mood | hungry ]

Since it's Tuesday, I suppose I should remind you that icons for the Beatles challenge are due tomorrow, Wednesday the 24th, at 10:00pm CST.

We haven't gotten any new entries besides the original three, and I don't know what to do. If you guys won't even make icons of the Beatles, what will get you to make icons and enter the contests? Please! Give me suggestions! Again, I'm not complaining about the people who aren't in the community to make icons - I still love you guys - but some of you did join for the contests, and I want to know what we're doing wrong. Tell us, or we can't fix it!

Comments are screened, as usual.

Challenge 3 Update [18 Jan 2006|10:27pm]

3valve
[ mood | disappointed ]

Deadline passed, and we only have 3 entries (all from the same person!). This means my ultimatum from what seems like ages ago has also passed, which means:

Challenge 3 has been extended until next Wednesday at 10:00pm.

All future challenges will be 2 weeks long until membership and participation rise to accomodate a 1 week schedule.

Please make icons and enter them before next Wednesday!!!

<3,
your slightly desperate moderators

Okay, so yesterday I said the new challenge would go up today along with the winners of the last one.

Then my DSL died 5 minutes later.

This threw a massive kink in the process... look for the challenge as scheduled next Friday. Winners & Banners up as soon as I finish them.

Enjoy another week off! ;)

General Announcements [05 Jan 2006|12:03am]

[ mood | busy ]

Hi! Um, we obviously took a break from contests. I meant to make a post and say that, but things got a little hectic around here and I never got a chance. So... surprise! You got a break! Heh... oops.

Contests will restart Friday. Technically, however, they will start tomorrow, because Liz and I are both driving out to my university for the weekend and therefore won't be around to post the contest! So look for that sometime Thursday night.


Other changes:

The poll indicated that more people wanted to leave the contests at one week long. They will remain at one week for now, but if I see the same low participation, it will be permanently changed to 2 weeks until we get more members and more participation.

Also due to low numbers, voting rules have changed slightly. You do not have to vote in order to be eligible to win a contest - but it is still strongly encouraged. Also, don't forget to vote if you're just lingering! Those of you who like looking at icons - here's your chance to tell us which ones you like! Participate, participate, participate! It just helps us choose the winners more fairly in the end.


Membership is still low despite efforts to promote ourselves. Do us a favor and promote us, too... tell your friends, stick a link in your userinfo, something. Please? I'll try to make pretty buttons for you to use! :)


Winners and banners of the last challenge will be up shortly, hopefully.

Voting - Challenge 2 [22 Dec 2005|10:43am]

[ mood | awake ]

Hi! I'm back! Did you miss me? Yeah, I didn't think so... anyway, here's the voting for Challenge 2.

Vote Here!Collapse )

I've been a little disappointed by the turnout lately, and I'm not sure if it's because of the holiday season or what, so I also request that you fill out a little poll to help us figure out what to do. Thanks!

Poll!Collapse )

Remember, if you have any other comments or questions or suggestions or anything, Liz and I are new at this and would definitely like input on how you would like to see this community run. Comments are always screened, so feel free to drop us a line!

Extension [14 Dec 2005|10:00pm]

fireaspark
Hey guys! As you all know, it's Wednesday and icons are supposed to be due.

We already have some great entries, but I think we could do with some more.

Therefore, I am extending this challenge until next week. That way, maybe we can get a few more entries before voting goes up.

Anyway..in conclusion:

Icons for the Oasis challenge are now due on Wednesday, December 21st by 10pm CST.

You can submit here.

Reminder [13 Dec 2005|04:16pm]

[ mood | determined ]

This is another reminder that your icons for the current challenge are due tomorrow (Wednesday) before 10pm. You can find the challenge and submit your icons here.

We only have one icon so far! Please make more so we can actually have something to vote on Thursday (and give Liz something to do while I'm on vacation ;)).

I suppose if this trend continues I might change the format so that the contests are actually 2 weeks long on purpose, but I don't really want to do that, so please don't make me. Go! Create! Enter! I'm not sure how else I can motivate you... offering imaginary e-cookies, perhaps? ;)

Long story short:
CHALLENGE 2 IS RIGHT HERE!
And your moderators are desperate for entries.
