:: CLOSED ::  
Well, simply put, I have decided to close the contest. I won't be deleting it (at least not for awhile), so if for whatever reason, you want to come back here to look at past contests, collect old banners, etc., you'll be able to. But we will end with Week 212 as our last - unsuccessful XD - contest.

This is going to read a bit like some awards acceptance speech, but I really would like to thank burningwhisper and umi_pryde (and all of the other banner-makers who helped out when I was swamped before) for sticking around longer than expected to keep providing the winners with their lovely banners. ♥

And ittykat, we started out well, didn't we? Too bad school and work and lives got in the way of our Google-doc plan. XD

Hopefully, I'll still get to see you guys and your icons around (*cough*pickmybest, perhaps*cough*), but for now, thanks for all of your participation over the years!

Well, I'm very sad to see this go. x_men_stills has fallen silent as well, so I was looking to this community for my X-Men icontest fix.

That said, although I stepped down at X-Men Stills not long ago (and the other moderator hasn't posted in quite a while), I still have maintainer access to it. XMS is only for movieverse icons, but if the closure of this community leaves some members wanting even that, I would consider getting something going there again. Anyone interested, let me know.

I am sorry to see this go as well. A friend and I had a brief stint at 100x_men and that crashed pretty early on. I blame real life.

All the best.

Although, I haven't been able to participate in an age I'm really very sorry to see this community go. You have been excellent mod and have kept it going while lots of similar comms fell by the wayside years ago.

Thanks a lot for all the time and hard work you have put into this community (while keeping it drama free); I know members past and present have really appreciated it.

I'll miss the community too. I was glad to help, and if ever the community starts up again I'll be there to help it along. It has been a lot of fun to be a member here and good luck to everyone on their continued icon making and with real life stuff too.
