With me starting my first job in February (3 1/2 hours from my parents where I primarily lived in the beginning) and trying to find a place to stay and dani_meows
being brought down with health and rl issues this community has become rather dead.
On top of the low turn outs from previous rounds.
This makes me think that it might be time to do something different with this community again. dani_meows
and I did discuss this shortly at one point this year, but neither of us really got around to it.
One suggestion was to give out a given number of tables and allow everybody to submit as many sets as they would like (with or without an official sign up) and every other month or so, a voting will be held for any sets submitted since the last voting.
The main problem I see is that the icon makers interest in contests seems to be running a bit low on Insanejournal right now (or well, late last year, early this year at least).
For now, I went over the last couple of posts in a bid to figure out what was still open from previous rounds:
Round 16: Banners
Round 17: Results, Banners
Round 18: Voting? Only dani_meows
Round 19: No one enteredPoll #6811 Future of the Community
Open to: All
, results viewable to: All
What kind of contest would you like to see?
What kind of claims would like?
What kind of time frame would you prefer for the round cycle (e.g. 20in20 is monthly since prompts are (suppsod to) always posted on the first)
Should claims still be limited to fandom or broadened to include everything (e.g. nature, cities, food)?
The "small table" in the first question refers to 20 icons in comparison to those 50icons or 100icons communities/ the larger icons option above.
*I've seen a fandom365 community on Livejournal where you're given a prompt a day and you have to finish 100 icons in 365 days using the prompts (with 2 days time in which you can submit an icon for a prompt). They allow a rather wide array of sign ups from specific characters, general shows/movies to pairings or anything else in between.
I hope this community can be brought to life one more time like it did as it was turned from the icon contest it originally was to the 20in20 contest.
