Welcome to the LIMS community dedicated to black and white icons. Challenges will have images from stock, tv shows, celebrities, and movies. If you'd like to participate, you must sign up in the signup post.

& All prospective participants must WATCH the community in order to participate. It's up to you if you'd like to join it.
& If you'd like to participate, leave a comment at the signup post with the username you'll be participating under. Signups happen once a round. If you miss them you must wait until the next round starts.
& Every week, a new challenge will be posted. Rules may vary but the standards must be followed regardless: all icons must meet LJ standards (<= 40kbs; <=100x100pixels; .gif, .png, .jpg), all entries must be posted as a comment to the challenge post (comments are screened), entries must be new and made specifically for the challenge, and the entry must be entirely black and white. No exceptions unless otherwise noted.
& You must enter every challenge unless you have been eliminated or have an available skip. All participants start with one skip. To earn another skip, advertise this community in your community, personal journal, or any community where advertising is acceptable and leave a comment here with the link.
Every week, voting will take place. But because this is a LIMS contest you will be voting for the least quality icons. The voters decide who will be eliminated every challenge so it is essential that as many people vote as possible.
& Each voting period, leave a comment in the post with the icons you wish to eliminate. All elimination votes must have an objective reason(s) for the vote against the icon. Please keep personal pronouns out of your sentence(s).
& After 48 hours (or so), voting will close and the results will be posted. The person with the most negative votes will be eliminated and can no longer compete in the current round. The person with the most positive votes will receive "people's choice" and another icon will receive "mod's choice."
For a thorough run through of acceptable voting, take a look at xenylamine's post (rules are slightly different here, but the information on comments is very beneficial).
