It has been sad to see so many players eliminated, but this is what it all boils down to: the final! A face-off of two icon makers who have survived this elongated battle royale. The competitors seem to be duking it out for the title of Dark Lord, since Lucius Malfoy is taking on his lord & master, Voldemort!

Lucius Malfoy
Voldemort

So far Lucius Malfoy has submitted their entry. this means we're still waiting for two icons (a Narnia Icon & a Photo Manipulated Icon) from Voldemort & Molly Weasley.

The deadline is next week: Wednesday July 29. However, if we receive entried from all three players before then, we will post voting early.

12th-Jul-2009 09:06 pm - Changes; Skips and Elimination System
hp - deatheating
There will be two changes to the rules/process of this community, effective for Round #005.

First, only one additional skip may be earned, bringing the total allowable skips to TWO per Round.

Second, elimination system is undergoing a complete overhaul. The current system for elimination per challenge relies solely on the points accrued during that challenge only. Because of this, iconmakers are sometimes penalized for one egregious error while they have otherwise made lovely icons. To end this, the following system will now be in place:

When the icon-points tallies are announced in each results post, each iconmaker also accrues a number of potter-points, which are the overall points gained or lost over the course of the round. Each iconmaker begins the round with 1 potter-point. The following values are discrete and additive:

• The icons with the top 25% (rounded up) icon-points will receive +1 potter-points.
• The icons with the bottom 25% (rounded up) icon points will receive -1 potter-points.
• The icon with the most positive votes (people's choice) will receive +2 potter-points.
• The icon that the mods liked the best (mods' choice) will receive +1 potter-points.
• The icon that has the most negative votes will receive -1 potter-points.

No iconmakers will be eliminated until the end of Challenge #03. At this point, the bottom-ranked 15% or so (to a certain point) iconmakers, based on potter-points, will be eliminated. This will then occur each week until the final challenge.

Each iconmaker's rankings and current potter-points will be announced with results, so you will know where you stand.


This icontest will continue to count for points at hogwartsishome.

If you have any questions, please ask! Comments are screened.

If you would like to see the comments that your icon received, respond to this post with the number of your icon and one of us will reply to your comment. You will receive both the negative critiques and the positive comments.

If you do not receive the comment in your email, please let us know and we will email them to you directly. All icon comments and critiques will remain strictly anonymous; please do not ask who voted for your icon, because we will not tell you. Also, please note that some of the critiques are harsh, so do not ask for your critiques if you will not be able to handle criticism.

Due to the nature of this icontest, all comments to this post will be screened and will stay screened.

There are 3 icon makers remaining in Round #004. Only the icon makers that survived Challenge #10 may submit an icon for Challenge #11... THE FINAL CHALLENGE.
