  ♥  A B O U T

In the most basic terms, this community is for icon makers to claim a subject for a certain amount of time in order to meet the challenge of making 100 icons out of said subject. Do you have something that you're just dying to make icons of? Do you think you can make 100? The come join our challenge!

How it works:
{one} Join the community. You must
be a member to participate.
{two} Submit a claim for your
subject of choice at this
and then wait to be approved.
{three} Once approved, you will be
given posting access and you may then begin to post icons of your
{four} You make 100 icons out of
your subject following certain terms and themes. You don't have to do it
all in one go...you may post them in small batches each time.
{five} If you've completed the
challenge successfully, comment at the Hall of
post to get listed. You can also get a shiny banner to show off
your insanity. :D Your subject is then free for the taking again.

But as with all communities, there are some rules and fine details.
Please read the following carefully. If you have any questions, you can
ask at the FAQ

  ♥  R U L E S

{&&} Each subject may only be
claimed by one person at any given time. You are allowed a span of 10 weeks
to complete the 100 icons for your subject, though of course it'd be
nice if you finish them sooner than that. :) This is done so that one
person isn't just hogging a subject all the time without making the icons.
To prevent "fake claims", you must post at least your first batch
within the first 2 weeks of claiming a subject.

{&&} Each person may claim up to two
subjects at a time. Additionally, you'll have the same amount of time
to complete your icons. So if you've applied for 2 subjects at once, you
will still have 10 weeks to complete 200 icons.

{&&} All 100 icons must contain your
subject in them. That's the whole point isn't it? Your icon can include
other characters as long as your subject is in the icon as well. While
this is allowed, I would recommend you to do it sparingly and to please
remember to try and keep your icons focused on your subject.

{&&} You do not have to post 100
icons in one go. You can break them up into smaller batches...say about a
minimum of 6 or more per post so that the community won't clog up
everyone's friends pages with single icon posts. Please put your icons
behind a cut! You are allowed to preview up to 3 icons outside of the cut.
And before you ask, yes...you're allowed to do fake cuts if you wish -
all I ask is that you state clearly that it's a fake cut.

{&&} If your icon contains
questionable rating content, please post a noticeable warning and place all of
those icons behind a cut. You MUST do this! And while I know this should
be pretty obvious, please no porn movies. :p

{&&} Please make new icons for this
challenge. It defeats the point and isn't much fun if you just dig out
old icons you have of your subject and post them as part of your 100
icons. :p Also, while icon makers of all levels are welcome...please put
effort into your icons. Don't just crop a picture and slap text on it.
You're supposed to be devoted to your subject, so show it in your
icons! :)

{&&} Out of the 100 icons you make,
part of the challenge is to make 50 of them following a particular set
of themes. These themes are included down below and can be taken pretty
much any way you like. You can use them as the text on your icon or you
can use it purely as an abstract interpretation. For example, in the
"red" theme, your icon can represent that theme in terms of the actual
color of your icon...or if red reminds you of anger as in seeing red,
your icon can show anger, etc. Be creative! :)

So basically, 50 of your icons are free choice, meaning you can do
whatever you like with it as long as it pertains to your subject. And the
other 50 has to follow a given set of themes to make it a bit more
challenging. :) Note: You do not have to make your icons in the order of
these themes. You can make them in any order but each theme can only be
counted once. Don't make 5 icons of one theme and skip some other themes

Please know that these themes are included for extra fun and challenge.
There's no theme police around here to determine if your icon qualifies
under said theme. All in all, just have fun with them. :)

{&&} When posting your icons to the
community, please do it in this format:

Subject: (if it's a character/ship/etc,
please include the fandom as well...eg. Lucas and Peyton - One Tree Hill
Batch: (what batch you're on, which
number of icons are in that batch, etc.)
Themes: (the themes that you are
using in your icons, if any)
Additonal Notes: (like credits,
disclaimers, your rules of usage if someone wants to use your icons, etc.)

And then your icons, of course. ;) It would also help greatly if you
could include the batch number and/or how many icons you've completed so
far. This just helps me and the members see how far you've
progressed...and it's also easier on me when I sort them into the community

And that's basically it. Please take a look at the FAQ
page for more miscellaneous info or if you have a question, you can ask
there as well. :)
