This is basically a community set up for contests between icon makers of LiveJournal. It's somewhat similiar to how American Idol works.
There are ten people in each contest. They'll compete each week by receiving a challenge for an icon that they must complete. They will have five days to make their icons, and then two days after that five judges will decide which icon will not make it to the next round.
How To Join.
Joining is very simple. Just post here stating that you want to be placed in the next contest. The first ten people to join will be placed in the first contest. The second ten people to join will be placed in the next contest. Please be aware that there may be more then one contest going on at a time, so make sure that you pay attention to which contest you are participating in.
Also, if you are kicked out of one contest, you may join another as many times as you wish.
The format of judging for this community is a little different than others. We have a few official judges :
For each week, they will pick the three icons that they think are not up to the ability of the others. Their least favorite icon will receive five points, second least favorite icon will receive three points and their third third least favorite icon will receive one point.
At the end, whichever icon that recieves the most points will be booted out.
This is probably just a temporary set-up until there are roughly around a hundred members to vote.
