Round Seven: Challenge Nine — Results!!!!!!

Eliminated: hermionesparkle
People's Choice: rahelcsy

So um... I fail hardcore.
Here are the results for challenge nine. I don't think it'd be fair to continue the competition as it's been almost 18 months since participants have made icons for this competition. People change and styles change, yeah?
Therefore, congrats to 00mina, immortalje, and rahelcsy for "lasting" this round.
I am contemplating re-opening bwchallenge, our sister community, in a bi-weekly format. I haven't gauged the interest in a competitive black and white icon community though and I'm not sure how successful bwchallenge or bwlims would be. If bwchallenge becomes "successful" (decent number of entries and I can maintain the schedule), I will seriously consider re-opening bwlims. Until then, unfortunately, bwlims has run its course. =\
This challenge was like the cliffhanger from hell and I sincerely apologize for putting the communities members through that.

Round Seven: Challenge Nine — Voting!!!!!!

I haven't forgotten. :P Given that I am completely finished with school this year, I don't foresee too many more obstacles to finishing this round.

Voting Rules
Please use the following form when voting.
IF YOU ENTERED AN ICON, YOU ARE EXPECTED TO VOTE. If you do not vote, you cannot win people's choice or mod's choice (thanks to sidhex3 for the idea)
Vote for your TWO (2) least favorite icons and ONE (1) favorite icon. Icons can be from any theme. Don't stick to one theme on purpose.
ALL votes must have valid and non-opinionated reasons for why you voted for or against the icon. Remember to vote on quality NOT preference. See here for help on writing effective comments.
Do NOT vote for OR against your icon or ask anyone to vote for/against you.
ALL submitted icons must remain anonymous until results have been posted.

Please take the time to consider a few things when voting:
Aim for votes to be 1 - 2 complete sentences
If you can expand, do!
WHY & WHERE - why is it a bad thing, where is it happening?
If you're feeling helpful you can also offer a HOW it could be improved.

i.e. If the icon is too dark, explain why that is a negative thing (subject blends into the background, loss of definition etc). Oversharpened? Tell me where!

Results will be posted Friday/Saturday morning.
REMEMBER: you are expected to vote if you submitted an icon
We will be eliminating one person.

Update on Challenge Eight

I've closed voting as it's I believe it's as clear s it's going to get. Unfortunately, I have to study for a very important test that's occurring on Thursday. It's really important to my grade and I'm at that in one of those awesome classes where I've only got a couple tests to base my grade on. SO results will be posted Thursday morning/afternoon. The next challenge will last two weeks from Friday (thanksgiving) and the final challenge will last another two weeks. After that we'll close up for the holidays with a tentative re-open of January 3rd.

My apologies to the participants and the voters for withholding results so long. :(

Round Seven: Challenge Eight — Reminder

There are about 36 hours left to get an icon into challenge eight. Skips are no longer permitted, so all eligible participants must submit an icon or they'll be disqualified from the round. :( Because we are down to the final five, i am willing to be lenient (like i haven't already, and i apologize for that. :P) but please let me know if you have any extenuating circumstances.

We're waiting on rahelcsy, hermionesparkle, 00mina, & immortalje.
