Right, now that the official stuff is out of the way - Hiya! :-D I'm your mod for today; my name is Tysolna. Before we start with the first challenge, there are a few things I'd like to ask you.
Are you all sitting comfortably? Then I'll begin.

Yes, we're here for the Classic Series iconnage. However, would you also be interested in iconning images from old spinoffs, comics, novelization and novel covers? We would be iconning everything that's from the last century, basically; our cut-off date is December 31st, 1999.

The official rules for the challenges will follow later.

If anyone here has prowess in making LJ layouts, banners or other graphics, and is interested in doing something for this community, feel free to speak up.
The same goes for people who may have screencaps or other resources - feel free to share with us, if you want to.

Again - this challenge community is for all of you Classic Series fans. Don't hesitate to tell us what you'd like to see here; all suggestions, comments and ideas are welcome.

And finally, pimp the community! The sooner we have enough members, the sooner we can start with the challenges. ;)

Introductory Post

Welcome to the Classic Series / Original Series / "Old Skool" Doctor Who icon challenge community.

We host at least one challenge per month - if user numbers and enthusiasm warrants, we'll do one every two weeks. There will be a set topic for each challenge, which may be a theme, a Doctor Who era, specific caps, or whatever strikes our fancy. ;) Voting is done by the community, and we have a first, second and third place as well as a Mod's Choice.
Icons that are entered in a challenge should not be used outside the community before the challenge is over.
Icons that are entered in a challenge should be new creations made specifically for the challenge.

Should you feel like sharing your Classic Series icons with us outside the challenge, feel free to do so. If there are more than three icons, please use an LJ-cut.

Caps and images can be found at The Doctor Who Image Archive, The Official BBC Doctor Who Site and The Tragical History Tour. Please feel free to share any caps you might have made yourself or found elsewhere.

A few words of advice:

  • Play nice. No flaming, harrassing our members, or pointing at their icons and laughing.
  • No icon stealing. No hotlinking. Give credit where credit is due.
  • This is a stillness community - no animated icons please.
  • This is a community exclusively for "Old Skool" Doctor Who; this means Doctors 1 to 8. If you want to do 9th or 10th Doctor (or Rose, Martha etc) icons, you should head over to dw_stillness.
  • Have fun!
