Non-HP LIMS: FINAL WEEK!


Welcome to CoS Non-HP LIMS
[Last Icon Maker Standing]

In this LIMS, Harry Potter will not be the subject matter; instead, the contest moderator(s) will specify a general theme for each ROUND (the length of the round is determined by the number of participants and is impacted by attrition, among other things). Additionally, each WEEK of that ROUND of LIMS will be a variation on the theme. Each WEEK will also specify the 1) Size; 2) Special Technique, Requirement, and/or Restriction. Any Entry not meeting the above will be excluded from the competition.

For Example:
Quote:
LIMS ROUND (X) THEME: Nature

WEEK (x) THEME: The Ocean
  • Image size: banner
  • Technique: Use of color gradient is mandatory somewhere in the banner
On occasion, a Texture or Stock Image will be part of the requirements for a given week. They will be determined by the moderator(s) and the use of any of such will be detailed in that week's rules. There will be a link to any such elements and any problems with the use of those images or links should be reported to the moderator(s) ASAP.
General Rules:
General Rules

The following rules apply to all sections of the LIMS contest:
  • All graphics must be your own original work.
  • All graphics must abide CoS Forums family friendly rules. Violation of these rules will be reported promptly.
  • You may include brushes, textures, text, etc. unless the challenge for that week states otherwise.
  • If fanart is used, you must state the name of the artist and provide a link to the original when you submit your entry.
  • Do not include your name in the entry; any graphics submitted for a given week should not be in use or display on CoS or another site until after judging is completed for that week.
  • If the current number of entries in a given week is between 15 and 20, the makers of the two entries with the most votes out will leave the competition. If there are fewer than 15 entries in a given week of competition, the maker of the single entry with the most votes out will leave. Depending on the number of Icon Makers currently remaining in the competition, the moderator(s) may elect to have a bonus round, which will provide the winner(s) an opportunity to rejoin the competition.
  • One "Get Out Of LIMS Free" pass will be available to each participant of a given ROUND of LIMS. The pass will allow its holder to skip one week of the contest and MUST BE USED before the final three weeks of the LIMS ROUND. You must send in notice of the use of your pass in lieu of a submission in any given week by the deadline stated for regular submissions. The following must be COPIED AND ENTERED INTO A PERSONAL OWL AND SENT TO THE CONTEST MOD:
Quote:
REDEMPTION CERTIFICATE


I am hereby officially redeeming my
GET OUT OF LIMS FREE PASS
for the current week of LIMS.

Re: NON-HP LIMS: For Starters

Well, here I am!

I won't be able to do much in the next ten days or so, because I'll be on the move and unlikely to have the sort of continuous internet access that I seem to need for a reasonable LIMS entry - but after that I should be fine, and even, perhaps, able to cope with two LIMS a week (assuming the other
one will start around the same time).


So, for the time being, I'd say,

count me in!


Could I just ask someone here to announce developments in the Pixel people group? I never come to the Burrow otherwise, and when I am on the move I do look into COS, but have to keep my range even smaller than usual. I'll keep looking at a few user groups, so if you could just mention major developments (e.g. start of the competition) there I'll pick it up in time.

Thanks!

Re: NON-HP LIMS: For Starters

Awesome! Let me whip up some rules and clear it with the mods, and we're good to go! I'll keep adding names to the list of people participating until we've got a good amount...
