As promised in the feedback poll, here are the sign-ups for round eight! However, due to low participation last round, we're going to try something a little different with the sign-ups this time. Rather than closing the sign-ups on a specific date, we will wait until we have a minimum of eight makers signed up (though more are always welcome!).

Round 8 Sign-Ups are currently OPEN.

Once we have eight (or more) makers signed up, we'll post the first challenge, which will then be open for two weeks.

Basic Rules (see here for all the rules and details)
  • firefly_rumble doesn't have eliminations. Winning the round is based on your overall cumulative score. Points will be given out as follows:
    • 1st: 4 points
    • 2nd: 3 points
    • 3rd: 2 points
    • Special Category: 1 point
    • Moderator's choice: 1 point
  • Failure to submit an icon for a challenge will result in 0 points for that week. You may still earn points for voting.
  • Each time you enter a challenge you earn a point. The more challenges you enter the better your overall score is at the end of 10 challenges.
  • Participants will also earn 1 point for voting. You can still earn this point if you did not submit an icon for that challenge. While detailed feedback is not required, it is welcome!
  • If for some reason you can't or do not wish to participate after signing up, please let me know so I can remove your name from the tally list. If you need to skip a challenge, please leave a comment on the challenge post letting me know.
  • Participants who skip 3 challenges in a row will be disqualified.

Bonus Points
  • Promotions will be awarded with points. For each promo you do, you can earn yourself a point. A total of 3 points can be earned this way. Please don't promote in "promo-only" communities. Post a link or a screen capture (if it's a locked post) in a comment to this entry.
  • You can also earn bonus points with referrals. Just have the person you referred post your username in their sign up comment. You can earn an unlimited number of points this way.
  • A few promotional banners/buttons can be found at this post.
  • Please note: Feel free to promote where applicable (and please be sure to check the community rules to ensure promotion is okay). If someone gets to a comm to promote first, please don't post again.

Bonus points will be available up until sign-ups close.

I just wanted to remind everyone about the feedback poll for round seven! Currently, we've only had two responses, so more feedback would definitely be appreciated (even if its only to let us know that you are or are not interested in participating in round 8).

Thanks, everyone! :)

This is your chance to let us know what you thought of round seven!

Under the cut is a brief poll with the typical questions (favourite and least favourite challenges, etc.), as well as the all important "do you want a round 8?" question!

Both snoggings and I would like to run round eight, so if there's interest there will definitely be one, hopefully sometime over the summer (estimated date for sign ups would be between the beginning and middle of June). However, next round we're going to leave sign ups open until there is a minimum number of participants, just to ensure that we have enough entries every week, so that there are more places than participants. :)

Even if you didn't participate this round, please feel free to reply to the poll! We'd love to hear from everyone, even people who are just thinking about (but not positive about) participating in round 8. All of the comments on this post are screened, and anonymous comments should be enabled. We're open to all feedback and constructive criticism.

Congrats to all the winners and participants, and thank you for the amazing entries!

As promised, the winning icon/banner in the last challenge would be used in the new layout...

Let us know what you think! Text size, font, etc. can be easily changed.
Also let us know if there are broken/missing links.

I just wanted to thank everyone for a wonderful round - I know that we had a small number of participants, but there were a lot of really wonderful icons this round from everyone, and it was a lot of fun seeing everyone's entries each week! :D

So, without further ado, the final results for round seven of firefly_rumble:
Drumroll, please?Collapse )

The results for each challenge, and the breakdown of the results can be found here! Thanks again to everyone who participated, and I hope that you all had a good time this round. :) Within the next week or two snoggings or I will post a feedback poll that will be open to everyone, both participants and watchers.

Vote Totals and BannersCollapse )

As mentioned above, the overall results will be posted shortly!

Thank you to everyone who responded to my call for votes yesterday! Unfortunately, now we have a couple of ties that need to be broken. Normally I would post a tie-breaker poll, but in this instance (because all of the votes are very close and because voting has already remained open longer than normal) I'm going to extend challenge ten voting until tonight, March 27 - it will close at midnight GMT.

Please cast your votes here!
26 March 2012 @ 08:40 am
Currently, we only have three votes for challenge ten! If you've yet to cast your vote, please do so here!

In addition, this is just a heads up that results may be delayed this evening (until tomorrow) as I've got some school commitments that might run rather late. Sorry for that! Voting will remain open until I'm able to close it, so even if it looks like you're past the voting deadline, please cast your vote! :)

STUNNING entries everyone! Remember, the winning icon/banner set will be used in the new, upcoming firefly_rumble layout!

  • Vote for your 3 favorite icon/banner sets. Please try to vote as objectively as you can, basing your votes on the quality of the icon/banner.
  • Also vote for the 1 icon/banner you think best meets the requirements for this week's special category. You can pick a set you've already voted for above. The special category this week is "Best Set."
  • Please leave a comment stating why you chose that particular set for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. These comments will be made available to icon makers after the results are posted, if requested. While these additional comments are not mandatory, they are appreciated!
  • Incomplete votes will not be counted.
  • You do not need to be a participant to vote.
  • Anonymous votes will not be counted.
  • Don't vote for yourself, but encouraging friends to vote here is fine (just don't tell them which icon is yours).
  • Votes are submitted by screened comments and will remain anonymous.
  • Voting is weighted as follows: 1st = 3 pts; 2nd = 2 pts; and 3 = 1 pt. These totals are added to determine challenge winners. SC votes are tallied separately.
  • Voting will close Monday, March 26 at midnight GMT.
