Info & Rules a.k.a FAQ

Hello! And welcome to s1icontest, in this post you will find everything you need to know to have fun here.

WHAT IS THIS?
This is a icon community. Iconmakers come here to prove their skills and have fun battling and challenging other makers. In this community the central theme are the 'NEW SHOWS' this means that you will only see icons about the shows that come out to the different TV channels every year.

CAN I PARTICIPATE?
Of course. Anyone can participate. You only have to join the community.

SO THEN. WHAT SHOWS CAN I ICON?
Here is a list of the shows you can icon by now. Of course the list will change as shows become 'old' and new shows come out. But its basically only about the amount of new shows that come out every year, as simple as that.

WHAT DO YOU CONSIDER A 'NEW SHOW' THEN?
We call a 'New Show' those TV shows that come out every year, those who are currently in their first season.

HOW WILL BE THE CHALLENGES?
The challenges will be weekly, except if there is an extension. Makers will be provided with a prompt or theme and then everything will depend on their own inspiration and skills. We can also add some inspirational icons. But remember ONLY NEW SHOWS.

RULES?
Yep, we have a few. Every challenge will have its own rules and info, but for the good dynamic of the comm we have the standard ones.

1.- Makers would be able to submit up to 4 icons and 2 large(tumblr) graphics.
1.2 - Icons size: 100x100, 40KB, PNG, JPG, animation is allowed but only if its artistic which means not a simple and plain gif.
1.3 - Large graphics size: 500x600, no max KB, PNG, JPG. NO GIFS.
2.- Extremely spoilery icons MUST be under a cut.
3.- Be polite and nice with everyone. Give criticism if its constructive. No wank on the comments.
4.- You can use anything to make your icons: textures, brushes, PS tools. And any images: Caps, promotionals, ect.
5.- Themes are up for interpretation, but the mods have their right to let a maker know when the icon doesn't fits the theme.

HOW CAN I PROMOTE THE COMM?
You can use this code:


BUT... I STILL HAVE QUESTIONS!
Then ask away and don't be shy! You can either comment here with your questions, or in the challenge you have any kind of question, or send the mods a PM. We will be happy to answer you anything.
