Challenges to express ourselves.  
Sorry for the double post to the community, but..uh..it's hard to avoid when you have low activity comms. ;)

The main reason I'm posting is that I had an idea of adding a sort of bi-weekly challenge to this community, in the hopes of getting a little more activity going. I've asked a couple of members, and the idea seems to be meeting a fair reception, so I thought I'd bring it up on the actual community.

The basic concept of the challenge is that a theme or style will be posted once every two weeks. Normally, I'd go with one week, but I think two might be better to give everyone more time. :) Participants will then make an icon/icons (not sure yet) to fit the theme, and submit them to the "submission" post.

After the two weeks are up, I'll take all the icons and repost them into another post. In a normal icontest, this would be where we all vote on entries, but rather than do that, I'm going to list the icon submissions with their creator. Members are then invited to discuss the icons, such as who they think best expressed the theme, or made best use of the style chosen. They might ask about how so-and-so achieved a certain effect, etc. Comments and constructive criticism will be welcomed. Flaming and insults will NOT be tolerated.

That's the basic gist of the challenge, at least. I would like to have at least a few more members before I start with the challenges...so if you could please, please, please, tell your friends and any icon makers you know about this community, I'd be happy! ^_^

Thoughts, comments, suggestions and questions welcomed. :)
