Hey, folks...hope everyone is having a good week :)

Anyway, I just wanted to say...make some entries! :) We now have 4, and I would theoretically love to have 8. If I have to, I'll make some entries of my own (but I was hoping I would not have to :P)...but other people that have signed up as mods - now would be a good time to submit some entries!

I'd really like to end the contest this Friday and vote this weekend, so get to iconing! :)

The post is HERE!!!!

Hi, guys!

Friday came and went yesterday...but we only have two entries. If it's an issue with caps, please let me know and I'll try to get better ones for you. If it's an issue with this particular episode, we can change the theme of the icontest.

Out of curiosity...do you guys still want to keep this going? If so, make more entries! :)

I'll extend the submissions for a few more days, but let us know if you are not really into this icontest anymore.

So, in my efforts to somehow pick up the community, I want to set up another week of the icontest. :) Since only one person entered into the lyric challenge that we had over a month ago, I thought it was probably the best decision to scrap it.

This week's contest will be about the 3rd episode - God is a Comedian Playing to an Audience Afraid to Laugh.

The info! :)Collapse )

Right nothing has really been done for a month and I’m not sure if I should be doing this but seriously, the community has been allowed to die and I don’t think that is fair especially if people still want to keep it alive. I know there is a lot of fuss going on about saving the show, so what I really want to know is; are people still interesting in this community? Do you guys still want an icontest for this show?

If people are not interested then it is not worth struggling to keep the icontest alive. Please give your thoughts on the matter. Please!

Okay I've added maliciousmotive, firequill, lovebuggin, ravenlullaby, and angelswingicons as co-mods. You might want to trade emails (or just use the comments here) to figure out a system. There is not really anything for me to tell you, unless you have any questions? Everything is yours now. Do with the community what you wish and
have fun =D

Sorry i have dropped off the face of the earth lately but i've been grounded from the computer and haven't had enough time to sneak on and update here.  Unfortunatley it's really important that i concentrate on my schoolwork right now so i wont be able to run the contests anymore. Is there anyone who would like to take over?  If not i will have to put this community on an indefinate hiatus.

-
You can submit up to 2 icons (You cannot use the same text or cap in the icons)
-You must use at least 4 consecutive words from the song below.
-You may use any caps you would long so long as it is from an episode of The Black Donnellys
-No blending of images or animation.
-Entries are due by 12am EST on Friday, March 23rd

Where to find caps:
tonicangel
16tosvo
dj_capslock

 If you know of any other sites/users please comment and let me know!

The Song:

When I Am Gone - Sparrow House

Come on take me down
Once it’s lost you know we won’t ever have it back
And there was nothing I could do to change the facts
You know I tried, you know I tried

I threw you all I have
I should have known
It never falls just where you plan
And there are rules I was not meant to understand
I should have known, I should known
Understand I should have known, I should have known

And so I’m giving you the gun
Put your finger on the trigger
I’ve known you in the morning with your soft eyes dreaming
You were the one
Who could blind me with the mirror
And I can’t see
And I don’t need this no more

You put your love upon the cross
You know you sealed it in the darkness all along
Did you think that I could roll away the stone
I’m just a child, I’m just a child
You know I tried, I’m just a child, I’m just a child

So I’m giving you the gun
Put your finger on the trigger
I’ve known you in the morning with your soft eyes dreaming
You were the one
Who could break me with the whisper
And I’m broken
And I won’t take your time no more

Mother make my bed
A lady shot me and she’s left me here to die
Sit beside me now and promise
You won’t cry when I am gone, when I am gone
Now you won’t cry when I am gone, when I am gone

You can listen to it at their myspace.

Please remember that icons are due tomorrow by 12pm EST. If you haven't entered yet, please enter here. So far we have 12 entries from 6 users. More are always welcome!

Here are banners for the winners of week 1.  Sorry they took so long.
congratsCollapse )


I really want you guys to enjoy the challenges we're doing so I set up this little poll to see what you favor.  Please take the 30 seconds to fill it out.  I really appreciate your feedback. 

P.S. I want to explain the  "keep up with recent episodes" choice. My thinking is that we would continue (as we are doing now) a week behind the latest episode, and then in hiatus' switch things up a little with other random challenges. Hopefully that makes sense. XD

Poll #947546 What kind of challenges would you like?

Please mark only one. (although you can mark one, and have a suggestion)

Keep up with recent episodes
4(20.0%)
other Donnelly themed challenges (i.e. favorite couple, fav. charachter etc)
2(10.0%)
Actors outside of their Donnelly roles
1(5.0%)
A mix of the above
9(45.0%)
I dont care
0(0.0%)

I have another suggestion...
