Hey guys. I know I am the worst mod in the history of the world, but I have a small favour to ask all of you. I know this is a really strange request, but here we go. Me and my friends are trying to play an amazingly funny practical joke on our friend Andy. Really all I want is for you guys to join, or even moniter teh_andy (yes It's a pun on teh_indy, really you need never look at it again, ever. It's just so there are a fair few members. If you're feeling extra nice, you could always leave a comment or several saying how great the site is, how great Andy is etc. But really, all I'm asking is that you join. Thank you in advance.

What's that community again?

Hey, check me out, I'm actually DOING SOMETHING. [20 Sep 2005|09:48pm]

[ mood | crazy ]

Haha, I really don't have to say how bad me and Harriet are. I know we suck.

Anyway, well done to the winners! Since my banners suck, I suggest you go over to custom_banners to get your banners. I really suck at banner making.

Ze winneeeers!Collapse )

I would post a new theme, but Harriet wanted to do it. So expect it in about three weeks! Yeah!

First A HUGE apology to all of you guys. I know we are the worst mod's in the history of forever. Me and waka_laka were both dragged off for a week to oversee 40 young girls run riot through the new forest, and then the arduous tasks of unwanted overtime at work, and personal statements has really taken its toll on us. But I'm happy to say the voting post is finally here

Click me and win, erm, a chance to take your vote. The Pankhursts would be proudCollapse )

Breakfast at Tiffany's?

Reminder/Extension. [13 Aug 2005|12:21pm]

[ mood | complacent ]

H'okai, we have like, 3 entries for this week's challenge. I'm not gonna post the voting until we have at LEAST 10 entries, so if another four people make two icons. Come on, it's not hard.


(and no, I did not just post this to my personal journal, AGAIN..)

Winners! And new theme! [07 Aug 2005|04:22pm]

[ mood | determined ]

Ok, so firstly, the winners of last week. I apologise for them being so late, I ran out of Internet time, basically.

Ze weeners!Collapse )

This week's theme is Lyrics. And, since I made such a great job of explaining this last time, I'll try and make it clear this time.

For icon subject themes, you can use anything, as long as it's either romantic, or funny, basically. But I mean, it really has to be shown in the icon. So, an icon of people kissing, that would be acceptable. In fact, an icon of any couple is OK. However, just one person, even if they're part of a really good couple, because the icon would convey no romance whatever. Yeah?

Similarly, an icon of someone doing something funny is OK. But an icon of a person smiling, even if they're funny, like Seth Cohen from the O.C, that's NOT OK, because he's not doing anything funny! Yeah?

On the other hand, if you want to still use romantic comedy images, any image from a romantic comedy film is acceptable. If that makes the slightest sense. If you're still confused, tell me, because this week, I'm gonna get strict with the entries. If something isn't romantic enough, or funny enough, then it will not be accepted!

Ok, the lyrics I chose are Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen , because it's so damn long, it'll be easy to pick some lyrics to use.

Beelzebub has a devil put aside for meCollapse )

You can submit TWO icons in by Friday, 19th August. Use at least three consecutive words from the lyrics. H'okai?

[ mood | embarrassed ]

We have a load of entries this week. I lost count of how many. Which means you can vote for three! Yeah, three! The order doesn't matter, just three. Voting will end on Tuesday.

Onto the iconses!Collapse )

Breakfast at Tiffany's?

Very late reminder! [30 Jul 2005|12:32pm]

[ mood | awake ]

H'okai, we have 5 wonderful entries this week, but we could still do with a few more! Since I suck, I forgot to say that you could enter two icons, so if you've entered one and would like to enter another, you can by going to this post! We do have some great entries this week though, I'm proud of you guys! We don't need Harriet!

*amused* We so do. But she's off saving the world in Australlia, so we'll have to make do with me. I'll do the voting post tonight, or tomorrow at the latest to allow a few more entries.

Breakfast at Tiffany's?

Challenge 7, is it we're on now? [23 Jul 2005|05:46pm]

[ mood | lethargic ]

Well, as Harriet's on holiday in Australlia, I guess it's up to me to single handedly run the next challenge. And as I've completely run out of ideas for films, I think we should start doing themes.

The challenge is Silence. This can be interpreted in several ways; the icon can be textless, feature someone being quiet (although how you can do that...) or some word that would reflect this theme, like 'quiet'. However, the word DOES have to be related to the icon somewhat, so icons like this-

- however amusing, will NOT be accepted. Ok?

If you're like me, and too lazy to look for screencaps, you can use ones from previous challenges, or go here for a load. Just as long as the cap you use has an element of romance or comedy in it.

Please enter your icons like this-

Ryan Atwood, the O.C (i.e. image, URL, and character/film they are from.)

The challenge will end on Friday, July 29th so get those entries in. See if we can shock Harriet with the excellent turn out for this week's challenge. And how is everyone's summer going, coincidentally?

Let us take a moment. [09 Jul 2005|09:23pm]

[ mood | apologetic ]

Yes. Let us take a quiet moment now, to reflect in how awful me and Harriet are. It's been a month, and we forgot to post the winners! I know Harriet will whinge and say how it was my turn to post the winners, but she could have just as easily done them. So we're very, very sorry, and we deserve many beatings.

But now that the remorse and redemption bit is over, onto the winners! Which is all you really care about. I bet none of you even read that, you just clicked the cut. Beh.

Mean Girls winners and very shoddy banners!Collapse )

Reminder Ahoy [15 Jun 2005|10:36am]

[ mood | creative ]

Hello all you lovely people. Just a freindly reminder to get your Mean Girls themed entries in for Friday. At the moment we have 15 wonderful entries for my challenge (which I am thrilled about ^ _ ^ ), and Katie has 2 entries for hers (which she is not so thrilled about and very jealous of me :P). Come on everyone, dont make her cry, the special challenge this week is actually very exciting, go enter, and help her catch up. Alternatively, enter my contest, an amazingly good cap challenge, and make her suffer even more :P

The REGULAR and far superior CHALLENGE

The poor and unloved SPECIAL CHALLENGE

Banners for Challenge 5 [13 Jun 2005|10:42pm]

[ mood | accomplished ]

I finally have banners :) I know it took a long time, but, yeah, I have been very lazy this week.

Click here for banner goodnessCollapse )

Banners! Yay! [13 Jun 2005|08:55pm]

[ mood | creative ]

If you cast your mind back two challenges ago, you'll remember that we had an additional challenge running alongside the very special one, that of the sleuth challenge. If you can't remember, here's a reminder!

Well, we had two sleuths here, and so here is your banner saying so, blutigericons and springhazsprung, take these and display them with pride, for they are your instant ticket for cool.

P.S I realised I spelled 'sleuth' wrong on the banners. Incorrect spelling makes the banners even cooler, in my opinion.

Special Challenge 6- Mean Girls [13 Jun 2005|05:48pm]

[ mood | enthralled ]

Yeah, I know, Mean Girls isn't exactly the regular romcom we're supposed to be iconning in this community. But the way I see it is, there's romance in it, and there's comedy in it, so who's to say what's what? Who's to define what we can and can't have here? All people are one and the same, just don't ask me to sleep with you.

No, wait, that's from something else. Anyway. Challenge this week is two things combined, because two people gave me different suggestions and I like them both.

The two themes this week are rivalry and pink. I was stuck for an idea, and so asked springhazsprung (over the wonder that is MSN) for help, and she suggested rivalry, which I thought was good, cause there is a lot of rivalry in Mean Girls. And it's also fun to make icons on rivalry. But then haliaka (also over MSN) suggested pink, which also fitted perfectly, and I couldn't decide.

SO. You can make two icons. They can be of totally unrelated to Mean Girls things. They can either be-

a) one icon to do with rivalry and one to do with pink
b) both featuring pink rivalry.

You CANNOT do two icons about rivalry, and two icons about pinkness. If anyone does that, cats will eat your face, OK? Your two icons are in for Friday 17th June, and not Monday like silly Harriet said.

Have fun! Any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Breakfast at Tiffany's?

Hey hey all you lovely people. The sun is shining, it's lovely outside, so naturally you will all want to stay in and make icons :) This week the film is Mean Girls, yes I know not typically considered to be a romantic comedy, but a great movie nevertheless emcompassing both romance and comedy ^ _ ^

Reminder the midweeketh [06 Jun 2005|12:30am]

[ mood | dorky ]

Your icons are due in on Wednesday! Now, my regular challenge has had a couple of entries (about three, I think, if that) and the special challenge has had a couple more (VERY creative entries this week, I am impressed. Harriet's dismayed Burger King hasn't come up yet though) but we haven't gotten nearly enough entries yet! So enter enter enter! Don't let the old hands win everything!


Now go enter dammit, and make me proud!

(P.S I do realise the caps for the regular challenge are teh suck. I'm not good with finding caps. I think it's cause I'm really lazy. ^_^ They'll be better next week when Harriet does it, honestly)
