Hello! Welcome to 24 LIMS (Last Icon Maker Standing). A 'Survivor' version of an icontest.
You sign up at the beginning of a round. You make icons from the caps provided or whatever the challenge is. And folks vote out the least well executed icons, judged on technique, not subjective 'I don't like yellow' or 'I don't like tiny text'.
All rules are in the community's userinfo

Sign-ups end when the first challenge voting is posted.
In this round, all competitors will get 2 skips. A skip is used if you would like to sit out of a challenge. :)
Remember, anyone can vote. So feel free to friend the community. :)

02 - You must sign up in the sign-up thread. You must enter at the beginning of the round. You are not allowed to join the round after Challenge 1 voting.
03 - A round lasts until there is... get ready for it... a Last Icon Maker Standing, aka the person who does not get voted out of the competition.
04 - You may submit only one icon per challenge, unless otherwise stated.
05 - Your icon must meet LJ requirements, which is a maximum of 100x100 pixels and 40kb in size.
06 - The icon you submit must be both original and exclusive until the end of the challenge. Please do not use your own or other's bases or icons made from the same caps made long ago.
07 - If your icon is found to be in violation, you will disqualified from both the challenge and the round. And Jack Bauer will label you as a terrorist. ;)
08 - I reserve the right not to accept your icon if it doesn’t follow challenge requirements.
09 - Unless otherwise stated, use of textures, brushes, blending, and animation is permitted.
R U L E S F O R V O T E R S01 - Anyone with a livejournal account may vote.
02 - Don't ask your friends to vote for your icon. Ask them to vote, sure, but do not tell them which icon is yours. Fair is the name of the game.
03 - All voters must give reasons for choosing their least favorite icons. You are voting on technique (cropping, coloring, lighting, text placement, etc.).
Sample reasons: "This icon is grainy" or "icon uses too much exclusion layer".
Do NOT give the reasons like "I don't like yellow so I don't like this icon" or "that idea stinks".
