[Mod Post] Moving!

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

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.

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

[Week 32 - Metro] Reminder

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]

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

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

Collapse )

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]

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).

Collapse )

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. ^^
