As you've probably noticed, we've recently had a severe lack of icon entries (and even icon voting). I've seen the same problem lately at other icontests, so I'm inclined to think it's at least partly a normal seasonal lag. However, it's a good opportunity to poll you, the members, about several aspects of our schedule and challenges. Perhaps it will shed light on some changes we could make that will inspire more activity. :)|
Please take a moment to answer this poll--and please, do post a comment to share any other opinions or suggestions you have!
Do you prefer weekly icon challenges, or two-week challenges?
I would prefer it if challenges were open for two weeks.
The current one-week challenge length works fine for me.
It doesn't matter to me.
Would you be more likely to enter icons if the award banners were uniquely made for each challenge (instead of being made from the same basic template)?
I would be more likely to enter.
I would not be more likely to enter.
Would you like to be able to enter more than three icons in a challenge?
I would like the limit to be four icons.
I would like the limit to be five icons.
I would like the limit to be six icons.
I'm satisfied with the three-icon limit.
Which of the following new theme challenge types, if any, would interest you? (Select as many as you like.)
Themed pairs or sets of icons (e.g. couples, seasons, young/old, etc.)
Director challenges: icons from a given director's films
Song lyrics: using words from a given song as icon text
Consecutive release year challenges, from 1910s to 1969
Other graphics: friends-only banners, desktop wallpapers, etc.
Other (please post a comment with your suggestions!)
