12:46 pm - HIATUS.

liangzhu
In case this wasn't terribly obvious already, gacktjob_stills has entered what we like to affectionately call an INDEFINITE HIATUS.

Personally, I would love to be able to get this up and running again one day, but right now I don't think I have the time I would like to dedicate to advertising and such. So for now, it's going to all be put on hold.

A terribly late banner for ka_donoCollapse )

1:46 am - CHALLENGE #8

liangzhu
Due to a lack of entries, Challenge #7 has been cancelled; the lone participant will receive a banner (and a ♥) for their efforts.

We're going to go ahead and put up another challenge, and see if we can't find a way to revive this community. Pimp us! Or if you don't want to, but you know of someone who might be interested, tell us, and we'll hunt them down for you! And, of course, please enter the contest itself. :)

Challenge #8: Scans - you may only use the scans provided under the cut. Blending of images is fine, but don't use any one image on more than one icon.

[+] Icons are due by midnight on Saturday July 22 (basically, get them in Friday night, and you're good).
[+] Two icons per person are allowed.
[+] No animated icons allowed.
[+] Submit your icons to this post (comments are screened) in the format:

10:32 pm - Winners and Reminder for Challenge number seven (seven, seven, seven...)

unseemingly
Here are the banners for the Juken Challenge! With some cake aside! CongratulationsCollapse )

The Gackt challenge (yes, him, and no one else) is still up for this week! This doesn't even take Picture hunting or sweat on a brow. After this we'll be back with the harder stuff ;D

Congrats to the winners; banners will be up shortly.

And everyone else! Go enter Challenge #7. It can't be that hard to make a happy icon of Gackt. Or hey, not even happy; we'll settle for not-broody. :P

10:06 pm - CHALLENGE #6: Voting

liangzhu
We only got five entries for the Juken contest (a very big thank you to those who did manage to make icons :D), so please just vote for TWO icons this time, and there will be no Mod's Choice award.

[+] Vote for TWO icons (just to be repetitive...)
[+] No voting for your own icons.
[+] Anonymous votes will not be counted.
[+] Voting ends very early Monday morning.

The EntriesCollapse )

We're extending CHALLENGE #7 for another week (and how come we only have one entry for that one, hm? that one's easy), so please go enter the Gackt Birthday challenge!

1:29 pm - CHALLENGE #7 (and Challenge #6)

liangzhu
Challenge #7 is another birthday week, this time for the guy who put the Gackt in GacktJOB. Wish the resident vampire a happy 400-and-something-th birthday and enter the contest! Because there are far more Gackt pictures than Juken ones (you didn't forget about Juken's birthday, did you?), there is a slight guideline here: aside from featuring Gackt, your icons must have a celebratory/happy nature to them. It is a birthday, after all.

And this isn't a rule, but it would be a nice personal challenge for you to try and make a Juken icon before making Gackt ones. ;)

[+] Icons are due by midnight on Saturday July 8 July 15 (basically, get them in Friday night, and you're good).

9:08 pm - CHALLENGE #6: Extension

liangzhu
As expected, Challenge #6 is going to be extended for another week. We only have two (very pretty) entries so far. However, we do have another birthday coming up, so we will be running Challenge #6 and #7 at the same time. More details to follow tomorrow!

In the meantime, celebrate Juken's birthday!

12:05 am - Challenge #6 - Midweek Reminder

liangzhu
Or... sort-of-after-the-midweek reminder. Challenge #6 is still up and running, but so far, we have no entries! Show the birthday boy some love (or that you can fit him into a 100x100 square), and go enter the Juken challenge.

5:37 am - Challenge # 6 : Juken Challenge

unseemingly
For Challenge # 6 we will be celebrating our first (and hopefully not the last) Birthday challenge. Before the eventual July 4, Gacktjob's wild Bass instrumentalist, Juken, is having his 35th birthday this Tuesday (June 27) so it's only great timing to take this chance for a Juken challenge.

This week's condition is that the icon must feature Juken or at least emphasize him. Here are some pictures and if you should have one in your personal collection, use that by all means! Also our Uploaded Image Gallery is bound to have more Jukens.

The same drill follows:

[+] Icons are due by midnight on Saturday June 30
[+] Two icons per person are allowed.
[+] No animated icons allowed.
[+] You do not have to try and fit every single person in GacktJOB into your icons.
[+] Submit your icons to this post (comments are screened) in the format:

12:11 am - CHALLENGE #5 - Winners and Banners!

liangzhu
The results of the little voting experiment: Looking just at the first vote everyone made gave us no ties, while looking at both votes gave us a first place winner, a two-way tie for second, and a two-way tie for third. And as nice as it would be if the world really was an "Everybody's a winner!" sort of place, well, having most of the entries place in the contest isn't exactly our goal.

So, one vote was tallied, and the results are as follows (with banners under the cut too)Collapse )

Challenge #6 will be posted when unseemingly gets back later.

12:47 am - CHALLENGE #5: Voting

liangzhu
We managed to round up a few more entries in this second week, but it would've been awesome to get some more icons and iconmakers in the mix. Maybe next time, yes? Please?

We're going to try something new with voting this week. We didn't get that many icons, and we want to try and avoid having to do a tie-breaker poll, so this week, pick two icons, in order of your preference. So, in the top box, pick your favorite. In the second one, pick the runner-up. We will be looking at the top box first, to see if voting for one icon instead of two gives us clearer results. If we end up with more ties, then we will look at both boxes, and your votes will be weighed equally, as they usually are. There is a chance there will be another poll anyways, but hopefully not.

If you're confused, feel free to leave a comment and we'll see if we can clear things up.

[+] Vote for TWO icons - see above for new format.
[+] No voting for your own icons.
[+] Anonymous votes will not be counted.
[+] Voting ends Monday night.

Now, on to the icons...Collapse )

1:01 am - CHALLENGE #5: Mid-week Reminder!

liangzhu
Hey there. I would love for this community to not die after a month; GacktJOB deserves better! We now have four entries, and it would be fantastically great to see more, so please, please (please?) go enter CHALLENGE #5. You still have a few days left.

Since we only have two (mod-created) entries so far, there will be a weeklong extension on this challenge. So, come on and get your entries in for Challenge #5!

Here, have another Gackt-You picture to inspire you to create pretty things:

6:37 am - Banners and Challenge # 5 Mid-Week Reminder

unseemingly
In this week's challenge, we want to see dynamic duos such that the picture below can show. This can be during their gigs, or they can be goofing around, however you want them! More pics of pretty pairs are in the Challenge post where your icons should also go.

Plus, take a look at the winning icons of Challenge#4! Congratulations!Collapse )

12:13 am - CHALLENGE #5

liangzhu
This week's theme: Duos

Simply put, there can must be no more and no less than two people in your icon. Any combination of people is fine, and feel free to use multiple pictures in one icon (like the one I'm using for posting this, for instance) because if you want an icon with Chacha and Toshi, you'd be hard-pressed to find a picture, I think.

And, as always, I went ImageShack happy so there are a bunch of pictures you can use (but aren't limited to); a good number of them are from Itsumademo: A YOU Fansite, and there are others there that I didn't upload.

[+] Icons are due by midnight on Saturday June 17 June 23 (basically, get them in Friday night, and you're good).
[+] Two icons per person are allowed.
[+] No animated icons allowed.

If you haven't done so already, please GO VOTE for Challenge #4! We have a tie, again, and only around one-third of the community (or rather, the people watching the community) have voted.

12:32 pm - CHALLENGE #4: Mid-week Reminder

liangzhu
Well, this one shouldn't be this hard to get more than eight entries for, especially when you consider that most of the guys involved in this are often seen with their instruments... and there are still two days left for you to get your entries for Challenge #4 in.

unseemingly has also added more pictures to the Uploaded Image Gallery, so go check those out, too (Gackt with a saxophone! And a guitar! And a string bass!). And then make icons!

6:20 am - Challenge#4 Extension

unseemingly
Hello, this should have been a poll post. We have a good number of entries, but half of which are submitted by mods.

Another thing is, we found more pictures of instruments which you might like. So we're making an extension till next week. You can find the additional pictures here. All from our resources post.

Submit Icons for Challenge # 4 here
