It is way past the due time to do this, so here it is:

The Holiday Gift Exchange is now officially CLOSED.

Now, onto other important news:

I hope you've had a good holiday season and start to the new year. I cannot apologise profusely enough for the lack of updates and general neglect of this community. Due to real life becoming crazy and a little unpredictable, ryfee and I discussed what we should do with this community for the time being and we have decided that it might be best if we announce an official hiatus, one that hopefully, won't go on for too long.

So yes, we are going on hiatus for an unknown period of time because RL is trying to make our brains explode. And because I need to read more ASoIaF books.

more info below cutCollapse )

If anyone has any questions, you can ask here. :) Thank you for your continued support and patience. ♥ ♥

ETA: You people are killing me with all these supportive messages. We're so grateful for the continued support Have some more hearts because you deserve it! ♥♥♥♥

Hi everyone!

First off, apologies for the lateness in uploading the voting post. But both Fee and I are overseas right now and net connection are sporadic at best. I have saved the icons and will upload them when I manage to get back to NZ next week. Apologies to everyone!!

I hope you are all having a happy new year! To celebrate the new year and the first anniversary of otp20in20, we bring you....

THE OTP HOLIDAY ICON EXCHANGE
Inspired by ff_eye_candy's exchange here.


All members can participate in requesting AND fulfilling icon requests! I hope everyone will join in!

Use this form for your request. In keeping with the theme of the community lets keep the requests OTP oriented! You can request a specific couple, a link to a specific image, or a general fandom.




This exchange will run until the 15th of January, and round 11 will be postponed until then due to the mods being on holiday, SORRY BUT I HOPE YOU GUYS HAVE FUN WITH THIS.

EDIT: For some reason LJ decides to randomly label some comments as 'suspicious' urghhh! Don't worry if your message doesn't show up immediately, I will unspam them as soon as I notice they are missing.
EDIT 2: HOLY SHIT EVERYONE YOUR STUFF ARE BEAUTIFUL. I SORTA WANT TO ENTER ALL OF THESE INTO AN ICONTEST /RESIST.

I'm going to fly off on holiday starting tomorrow so the voting posts will have to wait until next week when I am settled. Anyway I hope everyone is enjoying themselves this holiday~ We have a couple of things we wanna talk to you about.

INFORMAL HOLIDAY GIFT EXCHANGE


This was an idea ryfee had ever since the conception of otp20in20, inspired by ff_eye_candy (HERE) and shoujo_battle (HERE). This ran in 2007 (lol our iconning age is showing) and it's such a great idea we thought we'll revive it this holiday season & for otp20in20's 1st anniversary!

Basically people can put up a couple of links to images (of OTP, in keeping with the theme here) they want an icon out of. Then other members, mods included, can respond by making them an icon from one of the linked images. It's neat, there's no obligations and you can make as many or as little icons as you want/have time for. Just the sort of commitment free relationship thing we all yearn for this holiday, Y/Y? We are really keen on the idea, esp. as you guys have had one year now to get to know each other and us, it'll be a nice bonding experience, so to speak 8D? K I SOUND LIKE A GRADE SCHOOL TEACHER RN.

While the gift exchange challenge runs, otp20in20 will take a break until mid January, as all the mods will be on holiday!


50IN5R


Our overly ambitious and sadly neglected challenge (most of all by us orz). It's meant to end now that R10 has concluded. Sadly we only have 5 participants (kudos and big thank you to you all! 50 icons is no easy feat!). Unless there's a sudden change in wind and we start getting loads more entries, sadly this has to end and we won't be able to hold an icontest. However, there will be a showcase of the contestant up in January. Your efforts will also be preserved evermore in our sidebar links and userinfo.

ANYWAY THAT'S A LOT OF INFO TO TAKE IN, IK. But who's excited for the holiday gift giving spree? *raises hand* It will either be posted just right before the voting post or after the winners are announced, depending on how eager the mods are :D

SUGGESTIONS? COMMENTS? SPAM? ALL ARE WELCOMED.

FINALLY:
Please go submit your graphics if you've joined up in calendarsquares' gift exchange this year :D! This is crazy hypocritical cos I only just submitted my own last night 8D And remember to let Cyan know if you can't make it so she can start sorting out back up! I am v. excited to see who got who on the day!

Hi everyone!

I love that all the entries are rolling in this last 24 hours XD♥! Keep them coming! We've decided to extend the deadline and the new one is Thursday 22nd of December; 8PM GMT+12; as one of our member is having trouble uploading her completed set and also cos we want to see a couple more entries before the round concludes.

Thanks to everyone who has submitted so far, I will add your links here in a little while ♥! You have all been grand and tysm for agreeing to play around with my ridic. category theme this round. I promise it will be back to normal next round~

*back to making gift exchange graphics for calendarsquares*
