You probably have all noticed that there hasn't been a new challenge yet. . . it's for various reasons, and I'm really sorry that I did this in the middle of a season. tru_lims will be back soon, and I apologize to all those who this may be an inconvenience to. Once the rounds do start again, there will be a two week round to make sure that everyone still has time to enter after the long hiatus.

round #2 / voting [

PLEASE DO NOT VOTE ANYMORE, THIS ROUND IS FINISHED. THANK YOU SO MUCH TO EVERYONE WHO DID VOTE.

01. Anyone can vote. You do not have to be a member or participant of the community to, and it is greatly appreciated. (Also to pimp this voting post to get more people to vote)
02. We're going to be voting off only TWO icons this week. So, please only vote for the two you consider to be lesser quality. This does not mean a certain style you don't like, but the overall outcome of the icon and how it was made. You must give an explanation to why you voted a certain icon off. . . meaning constructive criticism, meaning no 'it's ugly' comments. Something more like 'the text doesn't match' or 'the texture takes away from the composition' are more appropriate comments.
03. When voting you can also vote for your favourite icon. You can give the reason why it's your favorite, but you don't have to.
04. Please do not just do half of the voting, as any incomplete votes will not be tallied.
05. Each comment left here will automatically be screened, though the comments will be sent to the maker if they ask (the comments will ALWAYS remain anonymous).
06. Make sure your icons are not posted anywhere else before the voting is over, if we find out that it has been, then you will be disqualified.
07. The number of the icon is below the icon, not above.
08. boxed and drankmywar are disqualified for not submitting their entries prior to the deadline.

Please use the following format when voting:

Lesser Quality Icons:
#31 - comments
#53 - comments

Favorite Icon:
#121 - comments are optional

I really loved the thick white border on this, and how you lightened up the image enough to match it. The text and light effect compliment it very nicely. :)

This starts it. . . the first challenge round at tru_lims. There're 20 participants, which really isn't many, but Tru Calling has been over for 2 years, so it's as expected. Though, you can still pimp the journal and try to get new members until Sunday (March 19) and they'll be able to participate. Even if you haven't signed up, you can still vote each round.
