But I can't compete with the ladies.

If we were to start tori_icontest up again, would a lot of you participate? Voting has never really been an issue. We really need icon makers. We have 90 members in this community, but the participation recently has been very low. I would love to hear from the members. What do you all think would be best for the community? Should we hang up the hat or continue with it? It would be nice to design a spankin' new layout.

Don't forget about tori_icontest! Livejournal seems to be dwindling in numbers, but we are still around. We are currently working on getting the community completely re-done and we're hoping to start posting challenges again in the near future. Keep an eye open and we'll be needing your help to bring in some more active members! We miss y'all!

Winner and Annoucement

Challenge #147 has been long overdue. One person submitted icons, even after two submission reminders. I will be putting the community on a short hiatus, so that I can revamp it and maybe that will help with the participation and bring in some new members.

Also, the Final Tallied Winners have not been posted in years. This will take a while to figure up, so I will have time to get that done while the community is on hiatus. I know that is a big deal with this community and it was our intention to always keep that part of it up and running. We have not gone back on our word, even though we are insanely late in posting it. If you don't know what Final Tallied Winners are, you can refer to the community's profile.

Because one person did submit icons, I will be awarding them an award for Maintainer's Choice. There cannot be a voting round, but I think this person deserves an honorable mention for participating. blondeboy69, thank you :) I will make an winning banner this week for this icon:

I will make an announcement post when everything is in order. I hope that all of you stick with us, as we are the longest running Tori Amos icon challenge community on Livejournal. This community is like a little family to us and we would hate to see it die down like so many other great sister communities have.

Thank you,

Challenge #147 has been going on since the 8th of March. We still only have one person who has submitted icons. I will make a submission in the next couple of days, but we will still need at least one more person to take part in this challenge.

I've been insanely busy, so I'm sorry for letting this round just sit without a word from me. It probably also didn't help that the reminder post had the wrong URL in it :| I am going to extend this challenge for one more week. If we receive more submissions, great! If not, we will have to cancel it. But don't worry, we haven't forgotten about the icons that were already submitted.

Have a great weekend, members!

Wish that she had one more day.
