Official Shut-down [09 May 2008|03:36pm]

seagull2eagle
I guess I should make it official that we're shutting down. As you all know, it's gotten harder and harder to keep the challenges going on a regular basis, and the moderators changed multiple times in the last year. It just finally hit that point where the momentum couldn't keep rolling the stone uphill anymore. :( Sorry about that. This was a fun community, and I had a lot of enjoyment when I was a basic member, and then when I moved to mod. Made good friends, and I hope you all did too.

The site itself will stay up for archival purposes.

Challenge 54 [29 Oct 2007|11:05pm]

seagull2eagle
And it looks like we're missing a moderator, so we'll move right along and hope she rejoins us later. ^^; FYI, until further notice, we're not going to use the Mon-Mon entry, but will rather do a rotating schedule where well run the challenge for a week, do the voting and winners, and then run the next one. This will end up with roughly a 10/12-day schedule between challenges.

Theme for Challenge 54 is "Banners" - yes, that's right. We're going to make our own offical "NCIS Hush" banners. :)

For this challenge, use the 1st place and Mod's Choice winners of challenge 52 (either theme or caps, your choice) to make a set of banners. (Reminder, you only need two for the set - 1st and Mod's Choice - don't use 2nd or 3rd.) There is no restriction on size or orientation for the banners - we tend to use a horizontal 100x300 set, but I've seen some great vertical ones and some that defy a definition. ;D We will be using the winning sets as our future banner bases, so please try and make a set that can be used with any icon.

Banners must have on them "NCIS Hush", entrant's name, winning place, challenge information (challenge # and 'theme' or 'caps')

For this challenge, you can enter as many times as you like. If you have questions, just comment here.

Caps are some high-quality images from Season 4. Five images from the Michael Weatherly Fans Media Center are located [in this album]. (Replicated only to make it clear which five images are to be used, and to save on their bandwidth.) Feel free to use all or part of the images (they're high res, so feel free to only use parts!) or to mix and match and add any special effects you'd like. You can enter up to 3 icons for this part of the challenge.


[:] Post your entry (or entries) in a comment to this post. Don't forget to submit your entry in both IMG SRC and URL formats.

Entries are due Monday, November 5 12, at 9pm PST (mid EST).

Characters first episodes, changes in their lives, new romances, new locations. A start of a new challenge year.

The caps for this challenge will be from Season 4 promos. I've picked 7 caps from Bluelight, listed below, and you can make up to three hush icons based on these caps.
- Sheppard, Gibbs and his Girl, Gibbs, Tony, and Ziva, Tony and Ziva, Gibbs and Abby, Ducky, McGee, Ziva, and Tony
