It's more likely than you think!
(Current # of Votes: 6/15)

A brief announcement: allsunday will be helping me co-mod this round, so don't be surprised if you get a comment or posts from her. You've all done a great job in regards to respecting your mod (thaaaaaat's me!), so I don't foresee (and hope not to see) any trouble with allsunday :)

Anyway, continuing on now... We received 19 out of 19 entries, so there are no point deductions for skips this round. Yay! And here are the voting rules. This week's themes were textless and a happy/calm/tranquil scene.

You are not voting through a poll, but through a comment left to this entry. You are voting for three icons that you feel are the best and two icons of lesser quality. Label the ones that are your favorites with a plus sign (+) and the ones that are your least favorites with a minus sign (-). You may also make general comments on icons if you want; label those with a G. General comments are entirely optional.

Please include some kind of critique in your comment. LIMS are for iconbenders who want to improve ;) Therefore, it's very helpful to point out to them what you like and don't like about their icon so that they can improve in the future.

Your vote is screened, and you will remain anonymous. Your comments will appear on the results page because I'll be c&p-ing things and assembling them there, but your username will never be revealed.

Sample Vote:
[+] #20: The crop is very effective; I also like the text. Very tasteful use of light textures.
[+] #25: Very nice color scheme; everything works together to bring out the subject well.
[+] #42: Fantastic use of base textures and also of tiny text.
[-] #30: The icon is too dark. It's impossible to see the subject.
[-] #35: The crop isn't very good. In addition to that, the font you picked doesn't match the subject matter at all.
[G] #40: I really like your use of scan lines!

Of course, you can go into much more detail than that. :)

Mods reserve the right to null any vote that votes for an icon for petty reasons and not the actual quality for the icons themselves. Examples of petty reasons would be because your favorite/least favorite character is in the icon, because you hate tiny text and there's tiny text on there, because of personal preference or bias, etc. You should be voting on the overall craftsmanship of the icon itself. If a mod contacts you to change your vote in some way and you don't change it, your vote will turn into a general comment that doesn't affect the icon's point total.

Don't vote for yourself or get others to vote for you. Depending on the extent of your offense, you may be DQed from this week and banned.

If you would like more explanation and/or examples of good and bad votes, check out the Voting Tutorial at rockmusiclims. (Unlike rockmusiclims, however, we require an explanation for favorites, but it can be brief.)

1 2 3 4
5 6 7 8
9 10 11 12

17 18 19 voting form (c&p)

Voting concludes 5PM PST on August 19. I will extend voting if I feel that there is an insufficient number of votes, though. (Fifteen is usually enough.) Feel free to invite other people to vote, as long as you don't introduce any bias to them (i.e.--ask them to vote for your icon, or to vote against a certain icon, etc.).

Good luck!

Thanks for your vote! However, your vote-offs seem to be based a lot on personal preference. It would really help give more ground to your vote-offs if you included more detail, e.g. explaining why the coloring detracts from the icon instead of just saying that it doesn't really work for you.

If you're not sure whether your vote shows personal preference, check out the nifty voting tutorial at rockmusiclims for some more explanation.

Thanks for your cooperation!

Lulz, I was just typing up a comment to point out that you voted off three icons XD

Thanks for your vote! However, your first vote-off contains a lot of personal preference in it, so I'd appreciate it if you could rewrite it to include more grounds for your vote-off (maybe reword it so that your comment on the coloring supports your critique on the mood of the icon).

If you need more clarification on voting, check out the awesome voting tutorial at rockmusiclims.

Thanks for your cooperation!

AGDSJKJKLDS! ♥ I'm just here to second the Audrey Kawasaki love. By a stroke of fate, I was just looking at her gallery in another tab. :O

Thanks for voting! However, your second vote-off appears to be incomplete; also, although I agree that hearts and symbols somewhat undermine the hush challenge, it's up to the mods to decide whether an icon fits the challenge or not. It'd be great if you could reword your vote (maybe focusing on how it seems gratuitous or out-of-place instead?) and finish it.

Thanks for your cooperation!

Thanks for voting! However, your second vote-off contains a bit of personal preference; it'd be great if you could re-word it (maybe explain why the coloring isn't particularly appealing).

Thanks for your cooperation!
