Happy Holidays!

Dear members (and lurkers), I would like to thank you for all your support over the last year (and your patience, when required). You've all been fantastic, and I'm very proud to be mod of this community.

This year we reached two pretty big (imho) milestones: our 500th challenge and our 10th birthday! Crazy to think we've been around that long.

Let me wish each and every one of you a happy holiday season (whatever holidays you celebrate) and a Happy New Year! May all your wishes and dreams for 2017 be realised in full!

This community will be taking a little vacation (once voting for the current challenge is done and winners announced) but challenges will be back early-January next year, unless you want me to organise an extra-special (longer) challenge for the holiday period? Cos I'm happy to do that, as I am not actually going away these summer holidays.

If you have any challenge ideas or images you'd like to share, please don't hesitate to post them here. *seasonal hugs to you all*

Hi all,

My apologies, but this community is on a short break while I have and recover from back surgery. We'll back in action with a new challenge as soon as possible.

I really hope to see you all when I'm back :)

Take care!

P.S. If you have any challenge ideas you'd like us to try (or any other suggestions), just drop me a line in this post.

Hi all,

This is just a friendly mod post to give you a heads up that I'm going to be heading off overseas on holiday this weekend and will be away until mid-October.

While I'm away I won't be able to maintain the regular weekly challenges. Bambi (my laptop) is staying at home, and I'm not going to be in one place for very long.

What I plan to do, is have a short hiatus of a three weeks, and we'll be back in business in mid-October.

I really hope to see you all when I get back :)

Take care!

Hi all,

Hard to believe we've reached 400 challenges. Thanks for all the fun and great icons over the past 399 challenges :)

May there be many more still to come.

Hi all,

Just to remind you that we're taking a short break and the next challenge (#392) will commence 9th June. Voting will then be posted 23rd June.

Hope to see you all back here then :0)

Hi all,

This is just a friendly mod post to give you a heads up that I'm going to be heading to Europe this Friday and will be away until late June.

While I'm away I won't be able to maintain the regular weekly challenges. Bambi (my laptop) is staying at home, and I'm not going to be in one place for very long.

What I plan to do, is have a short hiatus of a couple of weeks (starting once voting for the current challenge is complete). I will then schedule a couple of challenges to post while I'm away and have them remain open (simultaneously) until I get back.

Hi all,

This past year we've hit our 7th birthday in April and our 350th(!!) challenge in July. Thanks to everyone who's entered, voted, and watched! I appreciate every icon creator, voter and lurker; [livejournal.com profile] sga_icontest wouldn't be here without you!

Have a safe and merry holiday (for those who celebrate at this time of year). Hope to see you on the other side :0)

It was this community's 7th birthday earlier this month - wow! That's crazy hard to believe.

Thanks for all the support and fantastic icons over the past 335 challenges! May there be many more, as I kinda love this little community :)

Hi all,

This year we've hit several milestones; including our 6th birthday in April and our 300th(!!!!) challenge in July. Thanks to everyone who's entered, voted, and watched this past year! Please know that I appreciate every watcher, voter and icon creator here; I couldn't have done it without you! I want to take this opportunity, where we're nearly at the end of another year, to say thanks to everyone!

However, I have noticed a distinct lowering in participation in both entries and voting over the past few months (I know this end of the year, and particularly this month is a busy period for a lot of you).

Plus, it's been nearly 4 years since SGA went off the air, and people have likely moved on to other fandoms. So getting to 320 challenges is pretty damn good going I think.

I'm not making any decisions or hinting at anything. I am genuinely interested in people's opinions and preferences on this community. Are people still interested in challenges? Is there anything you like or dislike? Anything I can do better? Tickybox? Please comment and let me know. If you'd rather comment privately, you can comm me.

I'm super happy to keep going if people want me to. I have certainly not lost interest. In fact, I already have the next four challenges planned and the images set to go. I'd be very sad to see us close. Though, I know we can't keep going forever and ever.

In the meantime, Challenge 321 is still open. I just realised the closing date is Xmas Eve, which may be a little ambitious on my part. We'll see how we go. I may extend it a little.

Have a safe and merry holiday (for those who celebrate it). Hope to see you on the other side :0)

Longest admin post ever!

Just thought I'd mention that you should all feel free to drop me a line anytime (if you want, you can use this post) if you have any comments / critiques / ideas / rants about past, current, and future challenges for this comm - or anything else, really. If you just want to discuss the weather, then feel free to do that too.

It's been a little quieter than normal here (entry-wise) for a number of weeks, but I'm hoping that's due to the time of year; rather than people losing interest or hating the challenges I've been posting.

We have had a few people return to the comm, and a number of newbies - so, to those people, "Welcome / Welcome Back"!

However, back to my original point. If you have any comments... here's the place to go bezerkers!!!!!1!

I appreciate your feedback.

Hi all,

This is just a friendly mod post to give you a heads up that I'm having to go to Europe to work for most of October. Yeah, I know I only just got back from Europe a few months ago :0S

So, while I'm away I will likely not be able to maintain the regular weekly challenges.

What I plan to do, is post two challenges before I leave and have them open for two weeks (simultaneously). I will then attempt to locate an internet cafe or a computer at a hotel to post voting, and then winners, and another challenge (or two). Not sure how snowed under I'll be with work, but it's good to have a plan...

I won't be able to make banners at all, as Bambi (my laptop) is staying at home, so I'll probably be begging for volunteers when the time comes.

But there's several weeks yet before I leave, so don't forget to enter the current challenge! I really can't believe we're up to challenge 211 already - it's crazy!

Oh, and while I'm here... welcome to all the new iconners who've joined since I last posted a welcome! It's always great to have extra people contributing.

Hiatus

Hi all,

This community is on hiatus while I'm travelling, but we'll be back in business mid-June. I'll miss all the awesome icons, so hope to "see" you all when I'm back.



Keep safe and have fun!

It's [livejournal.com profile] sga_icontest's 4th birthday today. Hard to believe! Thanks to everyone who participates and watches - you're all who make this community keep ticking. Hope you'll keep hanging out in the future!

Sorry for the lame-o birthday banner...

Hi all,

Just to let you know the results of the recent poll regarding the 5 and a half weeks I'll be away...

• 11 votes - Go on hiatus, I don't mind a break
• 6 votes - Have someone else run the comm for the duration with weekly challenges
• 4 votes - Have someone else run the comm for the duration with a couple of challenges to tide us over
• 1 vote - Meh, don't care - a_gal can just choose (though, I realise as a Libran she sucks at decision making)

So, based on those votes this comm will be on hiatus from early May until mid-June... I'll remind you closer to the time.

Thanks to those kind souls who did volunteer to man the fort, so to speak.
