A Rumble Icontest for TV Addicts


Welcome to tv_rumble

This icontest community was inspired by disney_rumble. Credit for this idea goes to chimera_x. Rumble communities have a positive focus.

A "Rumble" icontest is similar to a LIMS, but instead of an icon maker getting voted off each week, all the participants get to stay and accumulate points for each challenge in the round. Whoever has the most points at the end of the round wins.

This user info page and the community rules may change or be updated occasionally so please check back every so often to keep up to date. Thanks.

  • Anyone may be a member of the community and vote in the challenges.
  • To participate in the challenges, sign up for the round you are participating in and be a member of this community, so that you will see the reminders on your Friends List.
  • There will be 10 challenges in each Round.
  • Participants will choose which TV show or TV mini series they will be iconing for a round.
  • It will be up to the participants to supply their own images for the challenges. (If you need help finding screencaps or images please ask)
  • Challenges will be technique or theme based.
  • Points are awarded for each challenge. (First place = 5, Second place = 4, Third place = 3, Special Category = 2)
  • Everytime you participate in a challenge you will receive 1 point, regardless of whether or not you placed.
  • If your icon is disqualified from any challenge you will still get 1 point for participating in the challenge.
  • You can receive 3 bonus points for promoting the community. This is a one time offer per round. (For more details, see the sign up entry.)
  • There will be four winners at the end of each round - 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Place. Winning is based on accumulation of points. Whoever has the most points at the end of the round wins.
  • You must enter an icon in Challenge 1 of any Round or you will be disqualified from the round.
  • After Challenge 1 it is fine to miss a challenge. However, you will be disqualified if you miss 3 challenges in a row.
  • If you need to drop out for some reason, let me know by leaving a comment in the most recent entry or the sign up entry for the round in which you are participating.

  • First and most important - SIGN UP to enter the challenges.
  • PLEASE carefully read the rules for each challenge as they will be different from week to week.
  • You only need to submit 1 icon per challenge, unless otherwise stated.
  • Icons are due Monday evenings at 9:00 PM CST or until voting is posted.
  • You will have one week to get your icon made and submitted to the challenge entry.
  • Please DO NOT submit an old icon to a challenge.
  • Icons must be original for the challenge, of your own creation and your own cropping.
  • All text must be of your own creation. Text textures or brushes are not allowed.
  • No Animation - Unless otherwise stated.
  • Please do not use or post your icon anywhere until the winners for each challenge have been announced or your icon will be disqualified from that challenge
  • Icons must fit LJ standards: no larger than 40kb in size and 100x100 pixels.
  • In order to be fair to the other challenge members all icons must follow the rules of the challenge for which the icon was made or be disqualified.
  • Please upload your icons to a reliable host that allows direct linking like Photobucket.
  • Icons made from Paparazzi photos or photo manipulations will be disqualified

  • Voting is weighed. Vote for a 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place icon in order of preference.
  • Voting is mandatory for all participants. This won't work very well unless everyone helps out with voting.
  • Please provide reasons for picking the icons you voted on. This is not mandatory, but highly encouraged.
  • Voting comments will be unscreened once the winners for each challenge are announced.
  • Please familiarize yourself with the schedule here and know when to vote. Voting is posted on Monday evenings and will last 2 days.
  • You do not need to be a member of the community to vote. Anyone who has a LiveJournal may vote.
  • You will be voting for 3 Best Quality icons (in order of preference) and 1 icon that best fits the Special Category.
  • Please do NOT vote for yourself.
  • In the event of a tie, winners will receive points for the place they tied. (If 3 or more icons tie for a place there will be Tie Breaker Voting.)
  • ***If you got this far in reading the rules you're ready to sign up. Please put "Watch more TV" somewhere in your comment to the sign up post.***
Look for Round 7 to start in September 2010. Please stick around and help out with voting
