The End of Gravi Awards [Thursday, January 15th, 2009]

liquescence
[ mood | sad ]

So I'm here looking at my journal and all the icon award communities that I am apart of and I find myself seeing some already closed down. I know that I put a temporary hiatus for the community, but I'm really thinking about closing down the community for good. In fact, I'm almost certain that's what I will be doing. The community's been put hold for too long and I find myself not having the drive to keep it going knowing the result that we will most likely have if I keep it running.

There's nothing really keeping me from keeping the community here in its ghost state. It isn't and wasn't my intention to keep everyone hanging. I just have had a busy year so many other things took priority over this community. As sad as it seems, I also have taken a long break from making icons myself.

Not to mention, my two favorite icon award communities, bishounenawards and bishoujo_awards, closed down sometime last year... I didn't even know this until I just had the urge to look through my journal. This was a big shock for me... These communities had been here since I started using LJ so I grew up (LJ-life speaking) with those communities. It was a blow to me knowing that such popular communities have shut down.

So if there are no problems with my decision, then I will be closing the community by the end of this month. You can say that it is long overdue.

Thank you all so much for the time and lovely icons that have kept this community alive these past four years. It was a pleasure for me to take over such a community, but I'm sad to say it has to come to an end.

With much love,
liquescence

I will miss gravi_awards. I hope everyone will feel the same.

TEMPORARY HIATUS [Friday, April 18th, 2008]

liquescence
I've finally decided that I want to take a small little break from gravi_awards. I'm really not sure whether I should just close down the community or have it still running. I'm disappointed that it's not as prosperous as I want it to be. I know that the anime Gravitation isn't so popular, but I didn't think it would get this bad.

And so, I have decided to put this community on HIATUS (once again) until I can straighten my thoughts and see where I want this community to go. If anyone has any thoughts, comments, or even some suggestions, please feel free to comment.

As for those waiting for you banners, I will have time on Sunday to do them, so if you all could please wait until then. My life has been a roller coaster and so I need some time for it to settle down. Thank you all for being patient with me.

Week 183: Extension [Saturday, April 5th, 2008]

liquescence
Okay guys. Since I do not have any icons for this week, I am going to make an extension. Also, since we don't have a theme for this new week, I shall combine the two and make this week's icons due next Friday at 10pm CST. So that means that there is a whole week extra for those submissions. Don't miss out on this chance to use the extra time. :D!!

EDIT: I decided to cancel this and let shus_songbook's theme be the one for this week. SO please go and submit to that post. :D

Week 183: Submission [Friday, March 28th, 2008]

liquescence
Hello, it is Friday and so that means it's time for another week of themes.

Theme 1: Colors of the Rainbow. There are only seven colors that may be used in this theme and they are: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, and indigo. I heard somewhere that the colors might have changed, but I still want to go with the old version. So have fun with this. There are also three options: either the whole icon is shades of one of the seven colors, or everything else is black and white except one of the seven colors, or the main color of the icon is one of the seven.

Theme 2: Constellations. Okay, I know that everyone loves to look at the stars at night and point out the constellations that you know which are probably only the little and big dipper...haha. (That's the truth about me!!) So here is your chance to see how well you can use those constellations. For cheating purposes, I have some of the names located here.

Rules:
[x] You may submit up to 2 icons (you may use the same theme twice).
[x] Include which theme you are using with each submission.
[x] Do not use livejournal user pics as a form of hosting.
[x] If you use fanart, provide a link to the fanartist's website/image location.
[x] Submit both icon and URL to this screened post by April 4th.

Week 181: Voting [Friday, March 21st, 2008]

liquescence
Well, I am a tad bit late, but the voting is here. I got very lovely submissions for this week. :D

Voting under cut!Collapse )

Announcements:

I have a couple of things that I want to announce.

First, I want to change the layout. I've been looking for some nice Gravi images but I can't seem to find one that suits my liking. So, if anyone has some possible piccies, I would love to see them. Either leave me a comment with the link or however suits you all best. :D

Second, I currently lost one of my mods. So there is now an opening for the position. I'm willing to take anyone...however, the only requirement that I am stressing is that the person be reliable and on time with their weeks. So, if any of you have an interest, please feel free to leave a comment and I shall get back to you.

Week 181: Submission [Friday, March 14th, 2008]

While I'm extending the other week, I thought I might as well, get another set of themes going. As I always say, it's never good to stop the cycle.

Theme 1: Pastel Colors. Since it's the Easter time, or whatever...what better to fit the holiday with the most used color scheme of Easter, pastel colors. Of course the whole icon does not have to be pastel, I just want to see at least one pastel color and you have to tell me what it is....(sometimes my eyes don't work...it must be all those years on the compu.) :D

Theme 2: Blurred Images. Now this will be a fun one. The image on the icon must be blurred in some way. Whether it is motion blurred or any other regular blur, I just don't want to see plain 'ole pictures. However, one condition in doing this theme is that I still want to be able to tell who is in the image so be careful on how much the image is blurred.

Rules:
[x] You may submit up to 2 icons (you may use the same theme twice).
[x] Include which theme you are using with each submission.
[x] Do not use livejournal user pics as a form of hosting.
[x] If you use fanart, provide a link to the fanartist's website/image location.
[x] Submit both icon and URL to this screened post by March 21st.

Side Note: Those of you who are waiting for your banners, I will have them soon. It is Spring Break for me and so I will have plenty of time to do them. :D

Hello, I'm here to beginend the week with some new themes! I thought really hard on these ones...so have fun with them!!

Theme 1: Boys Love. Well, what is Gravitation all about if not yaoi, yaoi, and some more yaoi? So what I want to see on those is some male on male action! Don't disappoint me, you guys! There is plenty of juicy BL in Gravi.

Theme 2: Adjectives. Yes, you saw right... I want to see how well you guys can use those lessons learned in English classes! So basically for this theme, you can only use descriptive words. For further info, go to dictionary.com. :D

Rules:
[x] You may submit up to 2 icons (you may use the same theme twice).
[x] Include which theme you are using with each submission.
[x] Do not use livejournal user pics as a form of hosting.
