Checking In Again! Interest?

Hello sttos_stills community!

We've been on hiatus for many months now. This past August, I asked if there was interest to jump-start the community again, and I received only ONE reply. So, I did not restart the community at that time.

If you are still watching and interested in making original Star Trek icons in this community, PLEASE leave a comment, and answer this short poll. I would be more than happy to continue the comm and get it started again if there is interest!

Are you interested in getting sttos_stills going as a challenge community again?

Yes, I am ready to make some icons!

As I had posted before, I had suggested moving this challenge into an "open-challenge" community, in which I would post a challenge/idea/prompt every week and people could submit to it or use it as a muse to create icons however they'd like. Instead of being a challenge community in which we vote and receive banners, it would be an idea/share community.

There seem to be a number of these types of icon sites already in existence for the Trek community, and I don't believe this group would be particularly unique. If you have a different thought, though, I would love to hear it!

Please comment with your thoughts and opinions here. I have always held that I want this to be a group effort, so I will take all comments into careful consideration. Thank you!

Checking In

Hello community!

We've been on unofficial hiatus for about 4 months now. I know that it seems the world of icon-making is slipping, and challenges are struggling. Even if that may be the case, I don't like to give up on communities that I run and others do seem to enjoy. Since I see a number of you haven't left the group, I will hold out hope that that is true!

So here is my question: would you like me to jump-start the community and start running challenges again?

I considered moving this challenge into an "open-challenge" community, but feel that it may not be as useful as such. By open-challenge, I mean that I would post a challenge/idea/prompt every week and people could submit to it or use it as a muse to create icons however they'd like. Instead of being a challenge community in which we vote and receive banners, it would be an idea community I guess. There seem to be a number of these types of icon sites already in existence for the Trek community, and I don't believe this group would be particularly unique. If you have a different thought, though, I would love to hear it!

Please comment with your thoughts and opinions here. I have always held that I want this to be a group effort, so I will take all comments into careful consideration. Thank you!

Final Reminder and Call for HELP!

This is your final reminder to enter The Doomsday Machine challenge by TONIGHT, April 22 at 10 pm EST!

We have NO entries. I've already extended this for one week, so if there is still no participation tonight then I will likely place the community on hiatus.

I'd like to ask for some feedback before I do so, however. Is is the challenges that have not been interesting? Is there no interest in the original series for iconing? Please let me know what you think - I am always open to ideas and suggestions! Post here or message me. Thanks!

Banner Catch-Up: So Sorry!

I deeply apologize for being SO late on many of these banners. I did not realize I was so behind, and I am so, so sorry for not getting these up sooner! I hope that winners from these challenges will still be able to get and use these - and I hope our participation hasn't fallen off because of my oversight!! : ( Again, I am so sorry, and congrats to all the winners - we have such wonderful icon makers here, and I hope to see more of them again soon!
