Official Shut-down

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.

Voting, Challenge 55

Thanks to everyone who entered. We ended up with a very respectable turnout.

Please vote for the top three icons in both cap and theme, in the order of 1st, 2nd, 3rd (votes are weighted in the point totals). Please also vote for which icon in each category best fits the "special vote" that's marked for each category. (You are allowed to vote for the same icon for special vote if you've also put it in your top three, but you don't have to.) Do not vote for your own icons. Label the categories clearly, please. All votes are screened.

All members can (and are encouraged to!) vote, even if you didn't enter.
