Yay!! My labor of love, [livejournal.com profile] sg1_lims, is now on its fourth round!

I didn't know if we'd get even 15 participants for the first round of a contest for a show that was already off the air. Instead we got 50. In the 2nd round, we had 55. And in the 3rd, we had 60. I appreciate every single person who competes and everyone who votes. You are what makes our LIMS the little community that could.

This is my long-winded way of proclaiming: ROUND 4 IS NOW OPEN!

Sign-Up for Round 4 // Caps for Challenge 1
Caps for the first nine challenges

If you have any interest in SG-1 or LIMS -- or both! -- please join us. We have multiple caps in each challenge and participants have a minimum of two weeks, often more, to work with the caps.
Current Mood: excited
ETA: [livejournal.com profile] sg1_lims -- We now have enough votes to say that yes, we'll be having a LIMS!! If you wish to participate and haven't answered the poll, please fill out the poll so that I know to track you down and let you know when we're ready to open the community. We're collecting caps, organizing themes, and setting up the community right now!


Is there interest among icon makers for a LIMS contest for SG-1? [livejournal.com profile] lantis_lims is a well-run community and I enjoyed participating; I'd really like to see something like it for SG-1.

I used to think LIMS was ego-destroying with its eliminations and reasons for voting, but I found that knowing I'd get feedback spurred me to try new techniques and take risks. It was immensely helpful to me as an icon maker to receive comments, both positive *and* critical.

I've wished there were a similar community for SG-1 for a while. So, is there interest? I'd be willing to mod but I'd like to have either co-mods or, as the lantis_lims has, a bunch of volunteers to help. And, of course, I would like to have participants!

Poll behind the cut )

I'm sure there are lots of things I don't know about running a comm such as this; I've never done it. If you have any helpful suggestions or ideas, I'd love to hear them.

Also? Please pimp this poll. I would like to reach the widest range of SG-1 fans possible. Thank you. :)
