Welcome, and welcome back, to v.2 of Unearthly Stillness, the Original Series Doctor Who icon challenge community.

I have been asked if this community is ever coming back, and since it petered out the last time because of circumstances beyond my control, I thought I'd throw the ring open again and ask you if is there any interest in starting this icon challenge again.

Prior rules would apply: One challenge per month (at least at first) with a set topic; voting to be done by the community; first, second and third place as well as mod's choice; pimping the community and recruiting other members is expressively allowed.

So, what say you?

September 30th, 2007

Hello!

If you're new to the community, or just haven't had the time yet to enter our second challenge, here's your chance: Challenge #2 is being extended to October 7th.

Remember, this challenge is all about the teaching. The task for you is to depict, in 100*100 pixels, an instance where Doctor Who as a series is educating, enlightening, instructing or tutoring the viewers; where an on-screen character looks or acts like a teacher, scholar, or guru; or something you feel you've learned from Doctor Who.

Please post your icons in reply to this post; comments are screened.

If you have any questions, please post them here.

Hiya!

This is a reminder that our second challenge will end on September 30th. You have barely a week to get your icons in!
Remember: The topic of this challenge is Teach me, Time Lord: What I have learned from Doctor Who / Doctor Who characters act like teachers.
Please look up the rules and post your icons in replies to this post.

Challenge #2

Hello again!

September is the start of the academic year in many countries. Doctor Who was originally intended to be educating as well as entertaining. Nothing seems more logical than to combine the two in our second challenge.

Challenge #2: Teach me, Time Lord

This challenge, should you accept it, asks you to depict, in 100*100 pixels, an instance where Doctor Who as a series is educating, enlightening, instructing or tutoring the viewers; where an on-screen character looks or acts like a teacher, scholar, or guru; or something you feel you've learned from Doctor Who.
There are no restrictions otherwise - colour, black and white, text, textures, strange effects, anything is allowed, except for animations.

    Rules:
  • Each of you can enter two icons to this challenge.
  • Post your icons and their URL in a comment to this post; comments will be screened.
  • Please don't use your challenge icons before the challenge is over.
  • Don't enter old icons; challenge icons should be new creations.
  • The challenge will run until the 30th of September, whereupon voting will commence.
  • For newcomers: Yes, this is an old!Who community. No Eccleston, no Tennant.


Happy iconning! :D

One more day! Get your icons in!

August 21st, 2007

Hiya!
I'd like to remind you that our first challenge is still open. It will close on the 26th of August, so you have a couple more days to get your icons in. We already have some fantastic icons, but there's always room for more!

Remember: The topic is What I like about Doctor Who, and we're the Classic Who comm, so no Eccleston / Tennant please (or face the wrath of Naked!Mod). Post your icons as replies to this post.

Alright! We have ten members and a couple more watching, so I think it's time to get our first challenge on the road.

Challenge #1: Anything Goes

This is a free challenge. Anything you want to use, use it: screencaps, behind-the-scenes pictures, colour, black and white, textures, text, quotes, there are no limits to your creativity. But with the first challenge, I'd like you to answer a question:
What is it you like about Doctor Who?
Why are you a fan? What is it about Doctor Who that we like so much? Try and answer this in 100*100 pixels.

    Rules:
  • Each of you can enter two icons to this challenge.
  • Post your icons and their URL in a comment to this post; comments will be screened.
  • Please don't use your challenge icons before the challenge is over.
  • Don't enter old icons; challenge icons should be new creations.
  • The challenge will run for two weeks, until the 26th of August, whereupon voting will commence.
  • For newcomers: Yes, this is an old!Who community. No Eccleston, no Tennant.

Did I forget something? Any questions you might have, don't hesitate to ask. :)

Let the iconning commence! :-D
