COMMUNITY CLOSED [25 Jun 2007|03:52pm]
We appreciate the member's support during Chorus' run, but we feel it is in the best interests to close the community rather than drag it out.

Challenge 86 Reminder [17 Apr 2007|01:09am]
Hey guys! We only have 4 icons for Challenge 86 so far, so make sure you submit some! This challenge isn't over until this Friday, but it's the last one before a decision is made as you Chorus' activity!

Challenge 86 [11 Apr 2007|02:01pm]
Okay, this challenge will be a little strange in that it's going to run from today (the 11th) until next Friday (the 20th) and then voting as normal over the weekend. If you saw the winners post that was made a few minutes ago, you know why we weren't around, but still we appreciate your guys' understanding.

◊ Read the rules
◊ Submit up to 2 icons within LJ standards: 40kb, 100x100 px
◊ Icons must have at least 3 words of legible text
◊ Challenge ends Friday, April 20th, midnight

Challenge 85 Winners [11 Apr 2007|01:46pm]
Guys, we really apologize for missing the challenge this week. Both lavaliere and I were at SakuraCon, the weekend sort of flew by, and I only just realized that we've still not posted a challenge! *LAME*

Thanks very much to cruxis for getting the voting up for us, and to all our members for your patience. We'll try not to let that happen again. ♥ Forgive us?

Onto the winners!

And when the sense of logic yields...Collapse )

The next challenge will be up shortly. It's going to be a little longer than usual, and run the rest of this week, through until next weekend. Sort of a combined challenge. Again, we really apologize for this.

Challenge 85 Voting [07 Apr 2007|07:18pm]

The souls of dusk rising from the ashes...Collapse )

Challenge 85~ [01 Apr 2007|02:31pm]

Hello members~ I bring you our next challenge, suggested by katsuko. Anyone else who'd like to see a song used in the not-so-distant future (because everyone's going to submit and the comm's not going to close, right~?) should leave suggestions on this post, since I love using suggestions! 8D

As always, a small batch of reminders~
→ You may enter up to 2 icons.
→ All icons must conform to LJ's standards (100x100 pixels max, 40kb).
→ No fanart, merchandise, GX, or First Series images are permitted. This means no doujinshi, as well.
→ You must use at least three legible, consecutive lyrics for your icon(s) to be accepted.

The riddles and the subtle signs...Collapse )

Your icons are due by Friday, April 6th at midnight! Please don't forget to vote for the current challenge!

Challenge 84 Voting [31 Mar 2007|04:11pm]
Late again, I'm awful. Actually, I have a bit of an excuse: getting everything ready for SakuraCon next weekend! Eeee~ okay, enough of that. We definitely had a better turnout for icons this week with 12 icons but many people took the opportunity to submit two icons. So we're getting better, but we'd also like to see some new people submitting as well. Any advertisement our members could give us would be greatly appreciated!

Now, on to the voting!

When someone said count your blessings now...Collapse )

Reminder - Challenge 84 [29 Mar 2007|12:31pm]
Sorry~ a day late on the reminder, but you've still got 2 whole days to submit your icons for ( Challenge 84 )! ♥

Challenge 84~! [25 Mar 2007|10:54pm]

Hey, everyone! Sorry I'm lateish in the night posting this - I was tossing darts to determine which song to go with (kidding, kidding; but I was debating between a few ...). Anywhoo ... onto the challenge~!

Please keep in mind the submission rules, of course: you're allowed up to two icons (unless you're a moderator; then you're allowed one), your submissions must fit to LJ standards (maximum 100x100 pixels or 40kb), use at least three consecutive words from the lyrics (legibly, please), and, of course, please use images from either the Yuugiou: Duel Monsters anime, or the Yuugiou manga (excluding Yuugiou R).

I took your words and I believed in everything you said to me.Collapse )

The challenge ends, without fail, at midnight on Friday, March 30, 2007.

Happy iconing, everyone! ♥

Challenge 82 Winners [25 Mar 2007|07:11pm]
Here are the winners for Challenge 82! Remember, we only had two places to give out this time, because of the small amount of icons we had.

Also, one more reminder for THIS post! PLEASE READ IT!

Of all the sinners I walk before, I can't deny it...Collapse )

artistjosie will be posting Challenge #84 later tonight. (Please ignore the fact that there will be no #83 due to that announcement.)

REMINDER [23 Mar 2007|10:51am]
Hey guys, just want to make sure you've all seen THIS ANNOUNCEMENT and if you have any thoughts on it, we'd like you to share them. At the very least, give us a comment to say you've read the thing? ♥ Thanks.

MOD ANNOUNCEMENT [20 Mar 2007|02:12pm]
Dear Chorus members,

As you may have noticed, there is no challenge posted this week. Rather, the moderators would like to take this week to address an issue directly that's been cropping up for some time now.

Activity has been on a steady decline for several months now. In a way, this might be understandable: the series ended, fans are moving to other fandoms, that sort of thing. But challenges have gone from getting 15-20+ entries per week, to an average of 6-8, if that. Our last challenge, #82, had a mere 5 entries by 4 participants.

We've tried to come up with ideas to promote activity here. We've changed the submission guidelines, voting style, categories for winners. We've tried to balance out the rules to allow a wider variety of people to win per challenge. Out of desperation, we even let most challenges run 2 weeks instead of one, although we won't be anymore for various reasons.

The bottom line being: we'd rather not see Chorus continue to go downhill until we're drawing one or two icons per challenge. It's bad for the community and it's not fair to the iconmakers.

So we're putting a notice out.

If people are no longer interested in participating at Chorus, just tell us. But if you are interested in keeping this community going, we need to see improved participation. Challenges starting next week will resume and run to the middle of April (up to Challenge #87 is completed). At that point, we're going to evaluate whether or not to keep Chorus open.

. Challenge 84 - artist_josie, Mar. 25, 2007
. Challenge 85 - cruxis, Apr. 01, 2007
. Challenge 86 - lavaliere, Apr. 08, 2007
. Challenge 87 - ankhutenshi, Apr. 15, 2007

As always, we would appreciate your feedback and suggestions. Please understand that this is not to be seen as an ultimatum, but a last resort. We would much prefer to keep this community open and running, but we also recognize that it may no longer be feasible to do so.
19 Ore No Turn Draw!

Challenge 82 Voting [18 Mar 2007|01:44am]
Sorry this is late, guys. We'll end up letting it run into the week to make up for it.

Because we have so few icons this week, voting will be done for First Place and Runner Up. Because of this, there isn't going to be a poll, so just comment.

First Place:
Runner Up:

Also, there's going to be a mod's announcement posted in the next day or so, so keep an eye out for that. ♥

We'll see if I start coming clean...Collapse )

Challenge 82 [11 Mar 2007|08:30pm]
Sorry for the confusion on posting, guys! We've got everything all straightened out now. ♥

A reminder to address before we get to the actual challenge: Make sure to cast your votes for Challenge 81, (Winners posted!) and also, we would LIKE YOUR INPUT on some things in the community. Any feedback you could give us would be greatly appreciated!

Now, onto the challenge!

◊ Read the rules
◊ Submit up to 2 icons within LJ standards: 40kb, 100x100 px
◊ Challenge ends Friday, March 16th, midnight

So you're the one who took the fall...Collapse )

Challenge 81 Voting [10 Mar 2007|10:41am]

Alright guys, here's the voting! We got a total of 13 icons this time (WOOT!), but after two weeks. What's up with that, guys? Would you prefer the challenges be two weeks long? Please let me know in the comments! ♥

Oh, and I had to use photobucket this time, 'cause my WS_FTP was wigging out on me. :\

One day we'll get nostalgic for disastor...Collapse )
