!welcome This is an icontest dedicated to the utter television excellence that is StarGate (in all its incarnations), and Farscape. We'd love to welcome icon makers of any level of proficiency, so come join in the fun. You don't have to like both fandoms to join - maybe you only want to enter Farscape icons? Sure! You'd rather stick to a single StarGate character? Odd, but go ahead. We'll specially tailor the challenges to fit any and all of the shows.
Why these two fandoms? Not really sure. Possibly cause the name-fusion sounds beautiful. Maybe because two of the main characters just seem to get everywhere. There is the future possibility that we'll incorporate more fandoms - for now, we'll see how we do. In the meantime, if you're that sci-fi starved, visit our sister icontest wts_icontest.

.ode to rules You must be a member to participate in challenges. We will focus on stills: no animations allowed, because they're buggers and exclude a lot of people. All entries must meet normal LiveJournal standards - 40KB or less, and 100px x 100px. You will be able to enter up to six icons, unless otherwise specified in the challenge rules. All icons must be made for the challenge, and must not be reposted elsewhere until they are released after voting ends. Entries will be screened until after voting ends. Absolutely no voting for yourself or getting others to vote for you. If you enter icons, you must then vote when voting time comes around. Often we need all the votes we can get. If screencaps are given, use only those. If not, use whatever you prefer. Generally, most things will be allowed. Het and slash, whatever. Know where to draw the line, however - I shouldn't imagine it would happen often, but the law still applies on LJ, as do the rules of common decency. Not even implied sex if the subjects are underage, no beastiality or anything like that, and nothing explicit. Strategically covered up, fine, but there are kids online.
