Hello my lovlies,

It is time for the hiatus to end! Sadly, this beginning is also an end. I have been blessed to have been accepted in to a wonderful internship for the next two terms, teaching German to elementary school children. This spring I will also write my huge senior research paper, the one required for my major and I will be sending to grad schools as part of my application. I am going to be super busy until late May or early June. I am looking for someone to take over this community for me until then. Come late spring, I will resume and we can co-mod together!

Although I am resigning as mod from other communities (hopefully I will return to disney_hush  about the same time), you will see me entering other communities, as entering involves far less time. You'll see me around. : )

So, if you would like to be a mod here at disnemotes  respond in a comment with some information about what experience you may have (although it's not required), why you want to be a mod here, and what kind of responsibilities you have outside the community. I would like to avoid the mistake I made, which is not having enough time. I would also like it if you described the theme of this community, as it is a little hard to grasp and I would like it to stay on theme.

Thanks for making this a wonderful community everyone. I'll be seeing you around, and I'll be back to modding sooner than it seems,

Barbara Ann, wirsindaurelie 
Current Mood: sad, but also excited

Well. This is the last post until December. I've been putting it off, if you all can't tell. Below the cut are Banners for Challenges 11 - 14, as well as Challenge 14 winners! Have a great term, everyone!!

NOTE: Challenge 14 had a three way tie for first place, so those are the people I gave banners to. There was no special category.

It's really a shame that I have so little time. I can't wait for disnemotes' return on December 20th, because this challenge had a good turn out and some really great entries.

Please vote for the best 4 icons
Icons are arranged by movie
Winners will be announced Friday

Voting is behind the cutCollapse )

I just want to stress that I am not leaving icon making communities, and that the hiatus is so that I have enough time for school work. I will still be active in
toon_lol , disney_hush and communities that I compete in. You'll still see me around. : )

Announcement: If you haven't noticed, I have not been able to update this community regularly. It's not just this community, either. toon_lol has been in a slump too (poisonedwriter and I are going to figure out what to do about our inactivity) and my icon journal and personal journal have suffered as well. It's because this term of school has been busier than expected. I have been forced to take on a leadership position in the OMB, and everything in Marching Band takes up a lot of time. I also got a promotion at my job. I need to lighten my load somehow.

In short, this community will be going on hiatus until December 20th.This is only disnemotes . This is just because I need to lighten my work load.

Special Challenge 4 will be cancelled, as only one person entered.
Challenge 14 voting will go up today, and winners will be posted Friday. THIS I PROMISE YOU.
Challenge 13 results will be posted today.
All due Banners will be posted by the end of the week.

Congratulations to everyone! Again, sorry for the tardiness. Remember, to make up for the super long wait, I will be adding an additional 3 points to the scores of challenge 12 and 13 participants during challenge 15, increasing their chances of winning.

Challenge 12 WinnnersCollapse )

I will do your banners today!

There is one week left for Special Challenge 4: Mufasa's Death. We don't currently have any entries. Dang. Please be sure to enter your icons HERE!

We only have 6 entries in challenge 14. This is enough to vote on, but not enough for it to be very competitive. I blame myself for not posting any reminders. I didn't get the chance to. Sorry about that. I am extending the challenge until Friday, which gives you guys three more days. You can find the challenge HERE!

Positions Open:
We are currently looking for volunteers for two Banner Maker positions. I am offering a special badge to whomever gets the position, if they want it. We would like two banner makers who can do banners on a bi-monthly schedule, preferably with some experience. You can apply by commenting to this post. Comments are screened.

Challenge 12 and 13 winners will be posted after my next class (about 3:30 pm pst). We didn't quite get enough votes, but I'll figure something out. Banners will be posted this week. To make up for the super long wait, I will be adding an additional 3 points to the scores of challenge 12 and 13 participants during challenge 15, increasing their chances of winning.

Special challenge 4: Scene Challenge: Mufasa's Death
I picked this scene because it is one of the most intense scenes of any movie ever, from one of Disney's best film to date. This scene strikes us with numerous, heavy, human emotions. You can make an icon about the fear, regret, guilt, anger, depression, or any of the other heart gripping emotions that this scene has in it, or the emotions that it makes you feel. Scenes like this are what make great movies.

Here's the scene. Let me know if you can't watch it and don't remember it. We'll work something out.

+ Regular Challenges will continue as normal, unaffected by the Special Challenge.
+ The challenges will start on the first of the month and end on the 14th. You have two weeks to enter.
