::VOTING GUIDELINES::

☆ You must vote for ONE graphic from each category. You do not need to give reasons why, but it's always appreciated. :)
☆ All votes are weighted the same, so the order doesn't matter.
☆ Please note that if we ask you to revise your vote and you do not, your votes will not be counted.
☆ Please base your votes on the merits of icons themselves, and not the people in the icons or by the icon maker you think made the icon.
Participants are NOT required to vote.
☆ You can see the themes at the submission post here.
☆ Vote according to what best represents the theme, not who is on the icon!
☆ You may not vote for your own icon under any circumstances.
☆ ANYONE with an LJ account can vote. HOWEVER - if you are found to have others vote for your icon specifically, you will be banned, THEY will be banned, and your icon will be null and void.
☆ Do not vote for any icon more than once. Doing so will cause your entire vote to be discarded.
☆ Voting will conclude on Saturday, August 14th at NOON CST (UTC -6).
☆ All comments are screened and will remain screened. No one other than the mods will know which icons you voted for.
☆ If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

Sorry for the late reminder. >.<;; With car troubles, a job interview and a new puppy all in the same day, my day has been kind of crazy. XD;

The following participants have not submitted an icon for THE FINAL CHALLENGE:


Since this is the final challenge, if you do not submit you will be disqualified from the round. Please submit your icon to this screened post. Since this reminder is a bit later than I'd like, I'm going to extend the submission period for a few hours. Icons will be accepted until TOMORROW, August 12th at 8 PM CDT (UTC -5).

Please remember to vote for Challenge 07. All of the icons are great, so voting is extremely close and we need as many votes as possible to make the results fair. REMINDER: participants are required to vote if they want to receive People's Choice or Mod's Choice.

Voting can be found here. I'm going to extend voting until tomorrow around NOON CDT (UTC -5). Results and the new theme will be posted shortly after voting closes.

::VOTING GUIDELINES::

☆ REMINDER: All participants must vote in order to win Mod's Choice or People's choice.
☆ You must vote for TWO icons of lesser quality. Be sure to include at least one reason as to why (They need to be TECHNICAL reasons - not personal opinions). You need to give constructive criticism in your vote. If you say "The icon sucks." or "I don't like the coloring," you will be asked for clarification. Your vote should have concrete reasons as to why you think the icon sucks or you don't like the coloring. Your reason will need to be more than just a one or two word comment. Remember, the iconmakers will be seeing your comments, so the more detail you give, the more they will be able to benefit from your comments.
☆ Vote for your ONE favorite icon. You do not need to give reasons why, but it's always appreciated. :)
☆ All votes are weighted the same, so the order doesn't matter but we'd prefer them in numerical order as it makes it easier to count.
☆ If you need additional assistance with voting, this post has a comprehensive voting tutorial. If you still have questions about voting, ask them HERE rather than at that post.
☆ Please note that if we ask you to revise your vote and you do not, your votes will not be counted.
☆ Please base your votes on the merits of icons themselves, and not the people in the icons or by the icon maker you think made the icon.
☆ You can see the themes at the submission post here.
☆ Vote according to what best represents the theme, not who is on the icon!
☆ You may not vote for your own icon under any circumstances.
☆ ANYONE with an LJ account can vote. HOWEVER - if you are found to have others vote for your icon specifically, you will be banned, THEY will be banned, and your icon will be null and void.
☆ Do not vote for any icon more than once. Doing so will cause your entire vote to be discarded.
☆ Voting will conclude on Saturday, July 31st Sunday, August 1st at NOON CST (UTC -6).
☆ All comments are screened and will remain screened. No one other than the mods will know which icons you voted for.
☆ If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
