[Mod Post] Moving! [Wednesday
March, 21st, 2007
]

hocus
I apologize if you have to see this more than once, as it's already been posted at game_hush, but:

Well, it's finally happened: got the new fused community up and mostly running! What does that mean, exactly? That means that, for all intents and purposes, game_lyrical will be closing down. In fact, with the exception of overdue banner posts [which will be posted both here and the new community] there will be no new posts to this comm. If you would like, you may go ahead and take this comm off your friends list. However, I greatly encourage everyone to go and join the new community! [You will, won't you? Pretty please?] Because I am not horribly creative or original, the name is game_synthesis. There's no new theme yet, as I wanted to make sure there'd be enough members to participate, but there will be one posted either this coming Sunday, or a bit earlier.

So once again, the new community is game_synthesis, and I hope to see all of you there! :)

[Week 33 - Bohemian Rhapsody] Voting [Sunday
March, 11th, 2007
]

hocus
I apologize for how late this is! divine_midnight's been sick, and I ended up getting my weeks confused (thought the extension lasted until this Sunday, and not last), and so...there was just general sucking on my part. In any case, you guys turned out some really fantastic icons for this theme! Sorry I kept you waiting so long. ^^;

Rules:
-Do not vote for yourself.
-Don't vote for an icon more than once, unless you're also voting for it for Most Lyrical.
-Vote for first, second, third and Most Lyrical.
-You must be a member in order to vote.
-Voting ends Tuesday at 8PM EST.

vote!Collapse )

Good luck, everyone! New theme will be up shortly.

[ mood | sleepy ]

And, thanks mostly to ponkie's pimping, we now have a total of seven awesome icons for Week 32! (Meaning we can stop all the extensions, yay!) So if you were planning on submitting, make sure you get your entries in before this Friday, because we'll finally be moving onto voting then. ^^

Also, I wanted to thank everyone for their input regarding the community fusing! Since everyone responded positively, we're going to go ahead with the merging. I hope to get all of that worked out this weekend, so stayed tuned for further details!

In the meantime, Week 32's submission post can be found here!

[Mod Post] [Wednesday
February, 7th, 2007
]

hocus
[ mood | anxious ]

Attention members:

First off, I apologize if you have to see this twice; it's being posted both here and at game_hush, and since quite a number of you are members of both, you're getting double the spam.

In any case, I've been thinking for some time about ways to not only boost participation but also to make this contest more exciting and interesting for all of you. Unfortunately, I am really not all that creative. ^^; However, what I came up with will not only make things easier on me as a mod, but also be appealing to all of you, as well.

What I was thinking of was combining both game_lyrical and game_hush into a single community (kind of like what happened with anime_hush and anime_chorus a while back, for those of you who remember). Things will run just about the same as they have been, except that there will be two themes per post (a lyrical and a hush theme) instead of just one. This doesn't mean you'll have to submit to both themes or anything, but you will certainly have that option. ^^ (For a working example of what I'm talking about, see anime_medley.)

In addition, submission times will also be changing (probably to a Sunday-Sunday submission period) so I'll be able to make post deadlines on time, instead of keeping you all hanging all weekend as I have been. If anyone has major issues with this though, feel free to speak up!

However, because I want to make sure everyone's okay with the idea I'm putting it to a vote. (The whole thing was to make things easier/more interesting for you guys, anyway. ^^) So really all I'm asking is that everyone please, please respond to this post with either a simple YES (for "Go ahead, community fuse away!") or NO (for "You and your community fusing are silly; I want my icontests separate!") If you have any comments or suggestions, or you just feel like chatting, feel free to do that as well! All comments will be screened for privacy.

In the meantime, there's still Week 32 awaiting submissions. Also, if you have any questions reading this post and you'd rather direct them to me in person, you can also email me at [becbet @ msn.com].

Thanks for reading and putting up with all the rambling. ^^

[Week 17 - Kind Lady] Banner [Sunday

[ mood | chipper ]

Slowly chipping away at the horde of overdue banners: behind the cut is divine_midnight's banner for Week 17.

Don't forget that if you are owed a banner (for any week), and you would still like that banner, you'd best comment here saying so, if you haven't already.

Also, Week 32 really needs a few more entries (just one or two, if you've got it in you to submit ;)), so why not check out those lyrics and see if you find yourself suddenly inspired!

[Mod Post - Banners] [Friday

]

[ mood | productive ]

I've been intending to make this post for nearly two months now, but haven't had the spare time until today. In any case, this be a more detailed banner-making schedule than the one in the user info; it not only contains banners that have yet to be completed (and the banner makers assigned to those weeks), but I'm also going to try to keep up with a list of completed banners to make banner posts easier to find (on the off chance winners somehow happened to miss them when they were first posted).

incomplete bannersCollapse )

complete bannersCollapse )

IN ADDITION: divine_midnight suggested a very smart thing, that smart thing being to ask all those to whom banners were due whether or not they wanted a banner. So: IF YOU ARE OWED A BANNER FOR ANY WEEK, AND YOU WOULD STILL LIKE THAT BANNER, COMMENT TO THIS POST. You don't have to say what week or how many banners you're owed or anything, but if you want banners, please do comment saying so. It's no problem to make anyone banners, but if you personally have no use of them, letting us know would decrease our work load tremendously. ^^

Gotta make this quick before I have to head to my next class, but thanks to everyone who participated this week! The icons we received, though few, were really great! ^^

Congrats! mashimero will be providing the winner's banner this week. ^^ Also, because I'm retarded and forgot to include the banner maker for week 29, it is, in fact, _joha. I apologize for not realizing that sooner. ^^;

Also also! Week 31 needs some entries! Any entries! As there currently are none. If you get the chance, please submit!

[ mood | disappointed ]

I'm a little disappointed with the turnout for this week, but, taking the holidays into consideration, I guess it's pretty understandable. In any case, because it doesn't look like Week 30 will ever receive new submissions, we're moving onto voting. ^^

Due to the lack of entries this week, rules are condensed into the following:

-Don't vote for yourself.
-Vote for your (one) favorite icon.

vote, yes?Collapse )

Good luck, guys! divine_midnight will have a new theme up as soon as she's able. ^^

[Week 30 - Bring Out Your Dead] Extension [Saturday
December, 23rd, 2006
]

hocus
[ mood | sleepy ]

As it turns out, the majority voted for a hiatus (and what's more, it looks like all three mods needed one XD) so I'm going to compromise and say open hiatus. ^^ We're still lacking entries for Week 30, so new submissions are encouraged! (Just think of it as one really long extension. ^^;) There will be no new posts/modding until January 5th (maybe earlier if we can find the time), so take the time to enjoy the holidays and contemplate the best way to turn Strung Out's snazzy lyrics into icons!

game_lyrical will be back with a vengeance on January 5th, 2007!

Until then, the submission post is here, but more importantly, Happy Holidays! ^^

[Week 30 - Bring Out Your Dead] Reminder + Poll! [Wednesday

]

[ mood | lethargic ]

Just posted a doppelganger post of this one at game_hush, so if you think your friends list is being haunted by clones or something equally ridiculous, fear not: I'm just really lazy and copypaste is easy. As pie. In any case, week 30 now has three entries, which is one more than we had before the extension. This is progress, but not progress enough to make it to voting this Friday. Thus: progress more!

Now onto the copypaste bit: I'm thinking of putting game_lyrical on a brief hiatus for the remainder of the holiday season after this Friday (the 22nd). What do you guys think? If the majority's willing to go hiatus-less I can't guarantee much punctuality on my part, but I certainly will put up the effort to keep the contest running. So let me know what you all think! There's a poll behind the subsequent cut, or you can reply via comment (which will be screened).

something new: poll!Collapse )

Also: some affiliate-pimping. Because we haven't had any in a very, very long time.

[Week 30 - Bring Out Your Dead] Extension [Saturday

]

[ mood | silly ]

Though we've gotten two very lovely submissions thus far, that's still not enough to go onto voting. Thus...EXTENSION. (It's in all caps because it resonates with the sound of DOOM. That one does, too.) All the extensions we've been having recently make me a sad mod (I make this face ;_; and everything.) But hopefully that's more to do with the time of year than my slackass modding skillz anything else.

In any case, the fact remains that Week 30 needs more entries. It's so lonely. So don't let it become as emo as SquallCloudRoxas! Submit today!

New submission deadline: Friday, December 22nd at 11PM EST.

Also, Week 29 has only four votes, if you haven't done so already VOTE NOW.

Well, I'm less than an hour away from it not being Wednesday anymore, but this post is still just in time to count as a mid-week reminder. X3 In any case, it being reminder-time and all that, I'd like to draw your attention to Week 30. Week 30 has no entries as of now, but it would definitely like to see some! I know you're all busy this time of year, but if you get the chance, submit some icons?

Also, if you haven't done so already, please vote for Week 29!

[ mood | energetic ]

This week's theme is just about my favorite song. Ever. Strung Out is certainly my favorite band, in any case. I've been a little unsure of whether or not to theme this song or not, considering the f-word is used in the chorus, but I figure it's nothing new to anyone here, and if anyone has a problem with it, I'll blot it out with little *'s. (So if it bothers you, comment and say so!)
