LIMS rules

I got my helper callingpiper(thanks a lot :)) so we can start.

These are charmcontest LIMS rules adopted from p3_lims.
Please read through carefully, because there is that little word you have to find, so I would accept you.

R U L E S.

1. You must be a member and friend the community in order to participate in the challenges.

2. Sign-Ups are now open. Please read through all the rules first before signing up. Signups are closed.

3. Each Sunday evening , I will post a new challenge which will have a photoshoot and/or screencap from Charmed or one the cast. The challenge posted may also have a theme, so pay attention to all the rules that are posted with the cap and/or picture. You will then create an icon using only the picture provided, but you will be allowed any textures, brushes, text and gradients unless otherwise specified.

4. Every Friday, your icon will be due. You will reply with the picture and URL of the icon as a comment to that week's challenge post. All comments are screened and icons will remain anonymous until voting is over.

5. Every Friday or Saturday, depending on me, I will post that week's icons and voting will start. Voting rules will be stated in the post. So read them carefully.

6. Please do NOT vote for your own icons! That defeats the purpose of this competition. You can, however, vote positively or negatively for any icons except your own.

7. Your icon cannot be posted anywhere or be a userpic for any LiveJournal account until the voting is over. Failure to remain anonymous will cause disqualification.

8. Every Sunday, the winner for that week, along with a mod's choice, member’s choice and the icon makers disqualified will be posted.

9. You are allowed one skip chance, but you must notify me prior to when voting goes up(that you can do replying to that current weeks challenge post). Only one, because it would be more interesting if all the members completed each challenge until they are voted off.
If you fail to notify me that you want to use your skip chance, you will automatically be disqualified. Skip Chance Post is here.. The only challenge that you are not allowed to skip is the first one, and if you make it to the final round, the last.

10. Be able to handle possibly negative things about your icons. It's nothing personal, as all entries are anonymous. If you can't take being voted out, then this isn't the competition community for you.

11. The winner will recieve a special prize, which I`m not revealing until the very end. Runner-ups will also receive something, but not quite as cool.

12. Please include "downstairs" somewhere in your comment when you sign-up so we know you've read the rules.

S C H E D U L E.
Here is your weekly schedule:

Sunday: Challenge goes up!
Tuesday&Wednesday&Friday: Reminder is posted, along with missing entries by our friendly mod callingpiper
Friday @ 10pm, GMT+2: Deadline for all entries, unless a skip is used.
Friday/Saturday: Voting is posted
