Congratulations to everyone who has made it to this point in the competition. We're only a couple challenges away from the Final challenge, meaning... skips will no longer be allowed. IF YOU DO NOT SUBMIT AN ICON FOR THIS CHALLENGE YOU WILL BE ELIMINATED.

::PROMPT::
The theme for Challenge 07 is NETSPEAK. Your icons must contain l33t-speak or net language. An acceptable icon example would be the one I used for this post. Other 'words' on your icons could include (but aren't limited to) pwnd, srsly, omg, lol, idgi and so on. You can include other, non-netspeak words on your icon, but the focus must be netspeak.

Please interpret the theme freely! We encourage wide interpretation. Be sure, however, that your icon fits the theme. If you feel that your icon may need explanation, please explain; it will help us determine the suitability of your submission. If you have questions about the theme or the validity of your interpretation, please feel free to contact us. If your icon does not fit the theme, we will inform you. You will have until the submission deadline to correct it.

::DEADLINE::
The deadline for this challenge is Thursday, July 29th at NOON CDT (UTC -5). If you're confused about the timezone, please check here.

::RULES::
☆ You may only enter ONE icon.
☆ Your icon MUST fit the provided theme, or you will be asked to resubmit.
☆ Skips are no longer allowed, so if you do not submit an icon you will be disqualified from the round.
☆ Your icon must fit Livejournal standards: 100x100 and 40 kb or less.
☆ Your icon must be completely new and not posted anywhere on LJ (this includes in your personal journal or ANYONE's userpics)
☆ Upload your icon somewhere where hotlinking is enabled (photobucket, tinypic, etc).
☆ If for any reason you need to resubmit, please delete your prior submission comment before posting a new one.
☆ You may participate only if you have signed up HERE and have not been eliminated in a previous round.
☆ Again, the deadline for submission is Thursday, July 29th at NOON CDT (UTC -5).
☆ If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
☆ Please use this form to submit your icon:

::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 24th 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!

::VOTING FORM::


REMINDER: You MUST be specific and constructive with your comments. We WILL NOT accept "It just looks cropped" OR "Not creative enough" as reasons.

NOTE: Voting is scheduled to close at noon on Saturday, but the results will most likely be later than that. My co-mod will be spending all day moving and I'll be at my parents' cabin celebrating my grandma's birthday with my family. If I can borrow our neighbor's internet, I'll have results up later that night, otherwise they won't be up until sometime on Sunday.
