NOMINATIONS FOR THE BEST ICONS OF 2011 ARE OPEN. IDK I'M OPENING THIS BEFORE HAND BECAUSE I HAVE THIS & ANIMAN GOING SO I HAVE TO GET THIS OUT BEFORE I FORGET. Lawl I bet you forgot, amirite?

Too lazy to fix the banner, get off my back.
POST: CLOSED.
Nominate the best (in your opinion) ICONS of 2011. ICONS MUST BE FROM 2011. Any fandom relating to anime, manga, & video game goes. Don't worry about categories, we'll deal with that later. Also don't worry about seconding, anything nominated will make it to the voting post.

Please reupload your icons to a different host & DO NOT HOTLINK. Please remember to provide THE ICON + MAKER/COMM OF SAID ICON.

Promo banner code for this if you want to promote.Collapse )
Feel free to spam. Nominations will close in 2-3 weeks.

DERP, forgot about this and animan. Any who a couple months ago I thought that at the end of the year we should do a "~best of 2011" icon awards thing. Like we'd nominate our favorite ICONS of this year, vote for the best in various categories (All icons would be in one post but you'd vote for different categories, like in a lims/icontest.) & the announce the best icons of this year. C: SO I PRESENT YOU:

The reason I decided to do this was because this year was fucking AMAZING for anime, manga & video game icons. You know I'm right. I mean just the showcase at animan is to die for. Seriously amazing icons everywhere, between the lims, battles, rumbles & 20in20's it hurt how much awesome was everywhere. My f-list suffered. DON'T BELIEVE ME THAT THIS YEAR WAS THE YEAR FOR ANIMANGA ICONS? JUST CHECK OUT THESE SHOWCASES~ THAT I HAD BOOKMARKED /LAZY shounenbattle (showcase), shoujo_battle STILL BITTER I DIDN'T JOIN (showcase), battleothesexes ♥ (showcase), + MANY MANY MORE~ I HONESTLY DIDN'T FEEL LIKE LINKING TO MORE SHOWCASE POSTS. /LAZZZYYYY TBH PINGBACK WOULD TELL YOU & THEN YOU'D KILL ME, MODS. :l
ALRIGHT ON TO THE PREP POST. JUST GO ALONG WITH THIS~Collapse )
SO QUESTION IS...SHOULD WE DO IT? :/

Honestly I'm doing nothing rn except working on icons for a battle HOW THE FUCK DO YOU ICON BRIDE OF THE WATER GOD? /HELP ;A; + making this wallpaper. TEACH ME THE WAYS OF SHADING MANGA COLORERS. ;A;

I honestly just want to chit chat. :D

UGH ANIMAN, YOU ARE NEXT.

ANIMUBEST PRESENTS:
Iconners We Miss. ♥
A.K.A. THE PHOENIX DOWN SHOWCASE.


Obviously late but unfortunately my internet derped again so I was unable to post this. Whatever. Under the cut are all the iconners that were nominated into the phoenix down category. I know that a couple of these makers have come back since this nomination category was closed but I thought I'd still include them in the showcase. Hope it's cool with you guys. Hope you enjoy it, nowwww I'm done. I organized all the makers in abc order. Honestly. I also reuploaded the icons into my photobucket account. Why? BECAUSE TINYPIC SUCKS NOW & THEY DELETE STUFF. :/ Enjoy~ :D

Also the layout's basic. I didn't feel like making a super nice layout, sry.
A months labor"s under the cut. GUHH I NEED TO STOP OVER DOING IT. :/ ALSO SOBBING FOREVER BECAUSE I ADMIRE A LOT OF THESE PPL STILL & I WAS AROUND WHEN THEY WERE STILL ACTIVE. FEELING OLD RN. ;A;Collapse )
& with this round one is officially closed. FINALLY. See you next year~

Hi commmmmmmm how are you guys?

So I'm here because I still need to discuss something with you guys. OBVIOUSLY THIS IS LATE, I am sorry. This was supposed to go up the day directly after the results were posted. Unfortunately the day after the results were posted I had a bunch of shit happen to me & let's just say that putting this post up was the last thing on my mind. :/ Sorry about that.

QUESTION: WHAT DO WE DO ABOUT VOTING FOR PHOENIX DOWN?

See the category is 3 (I think?) pages long so old school voting may be a little overwhelming for everyone. So I'm here to ask for suggestions. Idk, how do you guys want to do voting for this? WHAT should we do? Should we just drop it & call it a day? Or should I just do regular voting?

IMO I JUST WANTED TO DO A SHOWCASE TO SHOW OFF ALL THE MIA MAKERS SINCE IT MAY BE IMPOSSIBLE TO PICK BETWEEN EVERYONE. :<

Suggestions?

Phoenix Down nomination post for reference sake. Oh & results are here in case you missed them.

Thank you everyone for dealing & voting in the tie breaker polls. Fortunately all ties were broken & the results could be posted. This took forever for me to code, it was so so so so much. ;A; FINALLY thank you to all who participated & nommed, voted, second, etc. With out your help & enthusiasm this comm would of fallen apart. ;A; So thank you!

Below the cut are the winners. BEWARE! It's an icon heavy post. All the winners are under this cut. BTW: For categories with less than 4 nominees, 2 winners were picked. For categories with less than 3 nominees, 1 winner was picked. Congrats to all the winners. You get nothing~ ;D Thank you btw.

I don"t think there"s suspense? :OCollapse )
Tysm again for participating & congrats to the winners. You get nothing except your name there. :V Should of split this post but my head is pounding & I just want to go to bed tbh. :/

VOTING POLLS ARE NOW CLOSED, TY FOR VOTING.
I know results should of been posted yesterday but I was waiting to see if someone else would show up to vote.

TIES.
Turns out I lied & discarding the bots vote made a couple of ties. Besides that there's ties that were made bc of you guys being unable to pick between iconists. So under the cut is a poll to break the ties. This will be quick & easy, I will post results tonight at the latest. I am not going to vote in these polls btw, you know why.

I will close the poll in about two hours or whenever I get enough votes. :< EVERYONE & ANYONE CAN VOTE, AS LONG AS IT'S NOT A POLL INVOLVING YOU.
TIES ALL UP IN DIS BLANKCollapse )
Ugh now to go make banners for illustratest. So tired rn, this took me 1 1/2 to code.

ALL OTHER POLLS ARE CLOSED, SOMEONE QUICKLY BREAK THE CLAMP TIE PLZ.

Alsoooo I discarded the "auto-live [org.ua]" bot's votes. (Well I will when the results go up.) It was a spam-bot that voted for the then winner in each poll. I discarded it's vote so it's all good. So don't worry about it.'

VOTING WILL GRADUALLY CLOSE ON AUGUST 5TH.

BEST VAMPIRE KNIGHT ICONS
Vote for the icon makers who have the best Vampire Knight icons. You can vote for as many iconners as you want. Please do not CHEAT by voting for yourself & do not use sock accounts to vote, I'll be up in your cool-aid over this shit. Also don't just vote for your friends, it looks hella suspicious.
Under the cut"s the poll. Everything was copied as is so the order follows that from the nomination posts. If icons were hosted on Photobucket they were reuploaded. If they were hosted on TinyPic, Imgur, or Imageshack they were copied.Collapse )
