Welcome to lycan_stillness, a stillness icon contest community for werewolves in the media. The comm was created by leila_dessler and your co-mods are frozen_dhampir and the_sublime_cat. The original still contest idea was by quebelly. A still contest means that icon entries cannot be animated. Doing so automatically disqualifies the entry(s).
[x] Always read the rules in the specific challenge posts. Blending, text, if you must use specific pictures, etc., will be defined with each round. [x] Entries may never be animated - however, this is obvious, so I don't expect it to be a problem. [x] All entries must fit the LJ standards: No bigger than 100x100 px and 40 KB, in either JPG, GIF or PNG format. Enter the icons in this format:
[x] The contest will be anonymous. This means: do not post your icons anywhere else until the contest is over. Entry comments will be screened so only the mods know who the icons belong to. However, after the challenge is over, comments will be unscreened for those who wish to use the icons entered. [x] The entries must be new icons, made specifically for the current challenge. If not, the icon will be disqualified. (Whether or not you can use an old base will be stated in the challenge post.) [x] To participate, you must be a member. So by all means join. [x] Non-members may vote, but only LJ users. No anonymous voting. [x] Do not ask your friends to vote for you. If you pimp a challenge, that's fine. But do not ask for your friends to vote for your icons specifically, or bribe others to vote for yours. You do so, you will be suspended for one month, and a second time earns you a lifelong ban. [x] Staff members (mods, banner makers) are allowed to participate in the challenges. However, the mods are not allowed to vote. [x] Each challenge will have 1st, 2nd, 3rd and two mod's choice winners, unless there are not enough participants. [x] After the challenge is over, entries will be unscreened, if you wish to use one of the entered icons. However, you must credit, and it would also be considerate to reply to the entry. [x] If you have any questions or comments about the rules please feel free to email the mods.
[x] The challenges will usually last from Monday to Monday. Voting will be posted Monday evening/Tuesday morning and will last until Thursday when winners are announced. [x] Banners will be posted as quickly as possible after the winners are announced, if not posted along with the winners.
