5 months since the last challenge was closed due to a lack of interest, I wanted to see if there was any interest in restarting this icontest! If you want to see this icontest go live again, feel free to drop a comment to this post!
Alternately, if nobody is interested in a weekly icontest, I wanted to pimp another asylum I'm moderating.
dailyicons has been reformed earlier this year to a daily icon challenge. You can sign up with an kind of claim (as narrow or as wide as you want - from anything goes to a specific character/pairing/celeb) for a varying amount of icons! You also have the option to sign up for up to 3 different claims at the same time!
You can also choose between different table sizes (each with a different time frame for completion):
10 icons in 1 month
25 icons in 3 months
50 icons in 6 months
100 icons in 1 year
To complete a table you can make icons for the daily prompts (each one open for 2 days) and submitting it to the prompt post. Due to the amount of time given to complete the sets, you are able to skip prompts that don't inspire you (or that just doesn't fit your claim) or if rl just doesn't allow you to make icons.
If you want to know more:
Challenge 82 could use a couple of more votes!
Since there are still no entries for Challenge 83, I'm going to extend it until next Monday! Since it seems a second week is needed (with two challenges in a row), I'm going to make the next Challenge two weeks long!
Okay, normally I'd be putting up a new challenge here, but I'm going to hold off on a new challenge until we clean out some of the backed up ones that are in voting.
Thank you to those that have voted so far, and please, if you haven't, it only takes a moment. This is the easiest part of participating! Literally takes about 30 seconds to type in three numbers and press 'post'.
Because I fail spectacularly at remembering it's Saturday on Saturday (I mean, look at how long the latest challenge has been running) I'll be moving Saturday to Wednesday since I'm on here doing thetardistimes anyways, and I can stick a mental note to do the challenge thing before I post the newsletter.
That being said, I'll finish this post so I can post the voting for challenge 74 & submissions for 75!
Greetings again! Your friendly mod here, back with a new computer :D
Given that you've all had more than a month to enter Challenge 73, I'm disappointed to see there's only three icons entered so far! You have another week everyone!
Alright peeps, my computer died and I'm not exactly sure when I'll be getting a new one. *waves from the local library, next to some girls giggling over their crush's status on facebook or something*
Which unfortunately means dwicontest is taking an unexpected hiatus. Hopefully, it won't be too long, but as far as I can tell, it'll be at least a month before I can get my hands on enough money for a new tower at least.
Okay, for the sake of streamlining everything and less stress on everyone, I've made a bunch of banners for future challenge winners. Yes, I know at the moment it's a bit series 3 light, but I'll be adding more here eventually. Also, if you would like to make some, don't feel shy about making some and posting them in the comments!

We will be re-opening one week from today, the 4th of April! Stay tuned for some posts coming soon, along with our first new challenge!
Okay, I've had some time to think about what I want to do here, and I've decided to bring forth some ideas I have for changes.
First will be the challenges. Right now, the schedule listed in the profile reads as:
Sunday - A new challenge is posted.
A mid-week reminder will be issued.
Saturday - The voting poll is posted.
Monday - The results are posted.
Does this still work with everyone? It fits nicely into my schedule at the moment.
The second thing about the challenges is about the specials/upcoming series 5. I've seen the specials, but I don't get BBC America so I don't know when I'll be able to start incorporating Eleven into here :(
Second, we have banners. Does anyone want to do banners? If not, I can make up some generic ones for everyone to use ;)
Thirdly, I've been feeling a bit under the weather so things are moving slowly here, but they are moving forward!
And lastly, any comments, suggestions and whatnot may go here. The comments are screened.
