This is exactly what I was talking about. I can never stop and set enough time aside to maintain this contest. *cries*

So, because I obviously can't do anything with it .... anyone want to take over? All I have to do is add you as a maintainer and you can go for it. :) I can still be here to help out, if need be. I just can't sit here long enough to get this done.

I'm sorry. =\

I'm keeping the contest open for another week. I don't have enough entries to form a proper contest just yet. The new deadline is Friday April 7, 2006

So, SPREAD THE WORD! ;) I want to keep this going this time.

Submit your entries here!

Please give me your opinions.

First of all, is Monday-Thursday enough time to properly run a contest? And two days enough time to get your vote in? Would everyone have enough time to get them done or should I make the contests last two weeks instead of one? I know not everyone has loads of free time. I am one those. ;)

Secondly, do you all like the theme idea or would you rather me post specific pictures to use?

Feel free to discuss.

I'm thinking about starting up the challenges again (with a few changes).

Anyone up for it?

If more than two people will enter, I can keep this place going! :) There are 35 of you gorgeous xenites here! You know you wanna show off your talents.

By the way, I renamed my account. I used to be illusiafaery. Just in case anyone might be wondering who the hell I am. ;)

Sorry for lack of updates.

The last challenge only had 2 entries and of course that can't be a full challenge. Maybe it was too hard.

So, Monday (August 22nd) I'll post another challenge.

Charge up your icon making batteries. ;) [I am very Joxer-ish right now]

I'm back! Sorry I was gone for so long (an extra week and all). But I am back and I'm going to take responsibility of this community for a while, because cherrii was way too sweet to do everything! :)

Last week's contest is still running! I'll let it go until this Friday (July 22nd) @ 5:00pm CST. So, if you didn't get your Subtext entries in and wanted to ... now is your chance!. The voting will start on Friday night and the winners on Monday.

The entries have been AMAZING so far! Keep it coming! :D

If you have any questions or comments, feel free to ask me. Sometimes I even confuse myself. heh.

Oh and remember! Post your entries to THIS POST.
