Why is the rum always gone?

Welcome to pirate_lims, a challenge community. We will have a series of challenges based on the Pirates of the Caribbean films to help us determine the best icon maker, or the Last Icon Maker Standing (hence LIMS). Anyone is invited to participate, no matter what their skill level. Just read the following rules.

Mod: bl1tzkrieg
Layout Codes by justaddlayouts // Header by megathy27


01. SIGN UP HERE. You have until the day the first challenge ends to sign up. Also, we suggest joining the community, and friending it as well. It makes it easier to remember when challenges start and whatnot.

02. The first challenge will go up as soon as we have enough participants (minimum 10). You will then have SIX days to make & submit your icon to the appropriate post. If you have not signed up & entered by the time the first voting poll goes up, you will not be able to participate. Also, you must enter every challenge until you are voted off. If you miss a challenge or break a rule, you will be disqualified.

03. Each week you will be provided with a different image or theme. If it is an image or set of images, that image or set is the only image you are allowed to use. Stock photos, brushes, textures, etc. are all allowed unless otherwise noted. All movies may be featured, as well as pictures of the cast.


01. After the six days days, voting will take place. However, instead of voting for your favorite icon(s), you will be voting for your least favorite icon(s)! You are voting someone OUT of the competition. Think Survivor for icons.

02. When voting, you will comment with the number of your least favorite icon(s) and the reason why. These comments will be screened, but if you choose, you will be able to view how many votes you got for your icon and the reasons why.

03. At the end of the voting period, the icon-maker(s) with the most votes will be disqualified from the contest. There will also be a Participant's Favorite and a Mod's Favorite award each week.


01. If you miss a challenge, you will be disqualified. However, everyone will be allowed ONE BYE WEEK, meaning you can choose to sit out on that challenge and still continue the competition. If you choose to use your bye week, comment to THIS POST. If you miss a challenge without posting to that entry, you will be disqualified.

02. If you would like an extra bye, pimp in your journal or community and leave the link (see info here), then you can get another one! Obviously, this is only valid before August 24th.

03. All entries must remain anonymous! This means you cannot post your icon anywhere until after voting is OVER for that challenge. If I see it anywhere before then, you will be disqualified. You will submit your icon via screened comment to the corresponding challenge each week.

04. If you are going out of town at any point during the contest, and you have no byes left, please let me know in this post and we'll try to work something out.

05. Cheating (ie stealing or copying other people's icons) will not be tolerated. You will be permanently banned without warning or debate.
