Now, after getting very low participation in both icon submission and voting, I've decided to put this comm on an indefinite hiatus. I'm extremely busy right now, I'm rounding off my MA degree, and I have some issues in my personal life on top of that, so with this littpe participation it's just not worth taking out the time to hold these challenges. I'm not saying we'll never be back, I'm just saying I need time for myself to get things in order. I had a fantastic time hosting this comm, I hope everyone who always loyally participated and voted feel the same ♥

[mod post] On Banners [2|15|07 @ 2:10 pm]

lin
Allright you guys, as you probably noticed we haven't been doing so well with the banners. I don't have the time to do them on my own, and an attempt at solving this within the community didn't work either as even trying to keep that going became very time-consuming and frustrating for me. So I'm very sorry to have to make this decision again, but from now on yaoi_icontest will no longer be providing banners for its members. If you want a banner for your winning icon, I suggest you check out custom_banners. Do however please read their rules before requesting!

I do however have two weeks worth of banners left that I can give you guys - week 84, made by me, and week 86, made by lblikesbagels.

Also for your convenience I have comprised a list of weeks for which the banners were not delivered:
Week 80: Rivals
Week 81: S
Week 82: Autumn
Week 83: Hush
Week 85: Blue
Week 87: Christmas
Week 88: Gay Pride
Week 89: Opposites Attract

The theme for week 90 is:

Betrayal


Interpret as you will. You can show the theme in the text, or by using a couple that has dealt with betrayal (one that springs to mind is Spike and Vicious from Cowboy Bebop, but a lighter version of betrayal might also be Yuuta's choice to play for another team than his brother from Prince of Tennis. Anime *loves* storylines that deal with betrayal and revenge, so I'm sure you can think of some yourself!). Be creative!
