Challenge suggestions [Sep. 14th, 2006|10:35 pm]
Classic Icontest


If you have any suggestions for Classic Icontest icon challenges, please post them in a reply to this entry.

*If you're suggesting a song for a lyrics challenge, please include a link to the song's complete lyrics.

*Please do not suggest specific actors/actresses or films. In general, I intend to make the challenges broad enough that everyone can make their own choice of actors or films to use.

Sounds like a good idea. I'll put it on the list of future possibilities. :)

I have a ton of lyrics typed up for Nelson Eddy's repertoire. I'm sure there are lots of themes we could draw from those that would suit the general taste of the group. I'll dig up a few and throw them out for consideration.

ooooOOOooooo...another idea...
Since so many great classics are in black & white; how about "black & white and one color? Colorize or add a color to a B&W icon. :D

"Side-kicks, Buddies or the Other Woman"?

This isn't a challenge suggestion, but it is a suggestion.
I just found my last icon posted for the current challenge snagged nefariously. Please note:
As seen all over LJ:

LJ has a feed for the latest images posted publicly here:

Someone has set up a community, </a></b></a>iconscraper, to scrape off any image that is posted which meets LJ icon requirements and post them to this community.

These images are hotlinked from the image source.

You can opt out of your posts being included in the latest feed by going to the Admin Console and typing in these commands:

Journal Users:
set latest_optout yes

Community maintainers:
set for communityname latest_optout yes

ETA: Be sure you click the "execute" button after typing in each command (you can only do one journal/community at a time).

Thanks for the headsup on this. I've taken care of it.

Seems to me that most icons submitted are of people. How about something that cannot include people (characters or actors)?

Text only (quotes from movies, actors, etc)

Thanks! I've had it in mind to do some non-people icons, so these suggestions will be helpful. :)

I had an idea that maybe you could do like...well, you know how in a lot of these icontests, we have to post our icons screened in a comment under the challenge? I thought maybe you would maybe like to try it so people vote for the icon they like most not their friends. :) I mean you don't have to, obviously, it's just a idea.

I'd like to see Bobby Darin or Mario Lanza. Singers who acted

And perhaps silents broken down by drama or comedy

I saw your post directing here, so I'd like to suggest Sheldon Leonard, Alice Faye, and June Marlowe for Star of the Week sometime. Just a thought. ;)

Theme challenges... literature (film adaptations thereof); transportation (vehicles, horses, etc.); or work (showing an occupation or someone actually working - kinda dumb).
