Week 16-20 banners [

Remember how I mentioned that we'd still be working on banners? Yeah, we're still working on banners. Here they are for weeks 16-20. Quality varies, but when doesn't it?

Phew, doesn't look nearly as impressive once I've got 'em up. Anyway, there are a few blanks because some people informed us that they'd already gotten their banners for these weeks done. If you, like these others, have gotten your banner at custom_banners, please tell us! Reply to this post, or something =P Remember to reply if I screwed up or anything along those lines! Hey, it's plausible- I was working on some of these in the wee, wee hours of morning. Heh. Heh. Heheheh.

Congrats, and thanks for hangin' out with us at A_A for this ~half year. xD We won't be going away forever, mind - just until Melly and I get enough free time to pay y'all the attention you deserve. =P Carry on, then!

Hey guys! So far we have five great entries for our last contest, but more would definitely be appreciated, if you have the time to spare! We'd really like to make our last contest be a great one. xD

That being said, here is your submission post. Remember, you can submit up to two icons this week! Our theme is song titles in case you forgot. Here's a list of possible titles you could use:


Addicted to Love, Robert Palmer
88 Lines About 44 Women, The Nails
All or Nothing, Milli Vanilli
Another one bites the Dust, Queen
Rock you like a hurricane, Scorpions
Run like hell, Pink Floyd
Secret of My Success, Night Ranger
She Blinded Me With Science, Thomas Dolby
Something About You, Level 42
Superfreak, Rick James
The Promise, When in Rome
Too Shy, Kajagoogoo
Turning Japanese, The Vapors
Valley Girl, Frank Zappa
We're Not Gonna Take it, Twisted Sister
What have I done to deserve this?, Pet Shop Boys
Whip it, Devo
You give love a bad name, Bon Jovi
Youth gone Wild, Skid Row

The list goes on and on and on. =P

Week 29 extension [

Wow, so... only three entries this week. That's really cold, guys. Well, that being said, we're going to extend this contest one more week - please enter? Remember, you can submit up to two icons, so please take advantage of it!

Here is your submission post. This will be our last challenge for a while, and we'd prefer to make a decent showing before we go on hiatus. Y'all see where I'm coming from with this? In any case, please enter! We really, really want this to be a great week - er, well, two weeks.

The new, extended due date is April 21st; next friday.

Guys, I know that you know we're going to be temporarily going on hiatus at the end of the week, so why have we recieved only one entry for this theme? Please, for the love of all that is holy, please let akamatsu_awards go out with a bang, and not a whimper! If you're a member of this community and have not yet entered a contest, I urge you to do so now, just for the sake of letting this community live up to its legacy. If we can get eight icons, just eight this week, I'll be happy. Am I aiming too high? Hopefully not, considering the fact that we recieved eleven icons for the first week of this icontest.

But please, please, please, please, please don't make me extend this final week of akamatsu_awards; that just would not be cool on so many different levels. It's a pride thing. In any case, here is your submission post for "song titles". Hell, if need be, I will make up a list of songs you can use. Will that make more people participate? Because I'll do it.

And, in case any of you had lost hope in us, or some such thing, we're still going to be making and posting banners. Don't worry about it, we'll get rid of this backlog.

There comes a time in every community's life where everyone has to stop, step back, and wave goodbye; that time is, for akamatsu_awards, drawing near at an alarming rate. As those of you who have been with us from the beginning (or near that) know, generally the same people win, the same people lose, and the same people participate in akamatsu_awards every week, and something like time won't solve this problem. After discussing it a bit, rebmastu and I have decided that, at the end of week 29, akamatsu_awards will go on an indefinite hiatus. I say "hiatus", because there is still a chance that we'll come back. It could be tomorrow, next week, or maybe next month, but as it stands, we all just need a break. Now, no one's posting this to garner a boost of participation for the week (though it'd be nice); I just thought it important that you, as members and a part of the community, got a bit of advance notice so this didn't come as some huge surprise, though I suspect that many of you had already caught on. Because of this, we have also decided that the community will not be passed onto another mod. Any requests or suggestions of this will just make us plug our ears and run in the opposite direction, singing to drown you out.

But yeah, you know, life goes on and all that. If you're really heartbroken and love this community, etc etc, reply to this post with your email, and I'll be sure to send out some gigantic message to you all when we start back up. And yes, for all you spazzes who are so concerned about it, the banners will be done after we close.

Seven votes, four icons, three participants. Why am I not surprised? Luckily, we didn't end up with a tie, so all's right with the world. Well, I guess it's a plus that everyone placed =p

Results!Collapse )

The "announcement" will be coming later tonight. Meanwhile, rebmastu has already posted the theme for week 29: Song Titles here.

week 29 theme [

rebmastu
It's that time again! Yes, time for a new theme. Huzzah, and all that good stuff.

theme one: Song titles

For this theme, you may use any song titles you can think of, provided that (for the love of God!) the titles are not in japanese. On the other hand, you can use translations of japanese titles. Please be sure to include the full name of the song and the artist with your submission.

theme two: Brat-based showdown!

You can use any part of this image in your icon.


Rules and guidelines
-up to two icons may be submitted for each challenge. They can both be from the same theme, or from two different ones. Icons that fit both themes are also allowed- IE, an icon that uses the resource provided in theme two may also qualify under theme one.
-Icons must be made fresh for this challenge. No reusing old bases or pulling off someone's icon for your own.
-Icons must be no larger than 100x100 pixels or 40kb in size. In other words, they must be compatible for LJ.
-No crossposting or sharing your icon before the contest is FULLY completed. Until that results post is up, we'd better not find your icon floating around your journal or anywhere else.

Submit icons in the following manner.

Internet Explorer is the worst browser on the face of the Earth and it should be demolished. Everyone should use Firefox. Download it. Love it. Cherish it.

Now, normally, if we had four icons, I would simply extend the contest. But you guys have broken me. Four icons. Live, learn, and vote.
