Sorry there's nothing going on here. I didn't forget the community I just needed a break.  I have a kind of inspiration post in the works but it it would help me to know if anyone is interested in doing a different kind of challenge with icon sets (other than the 1 to 5 icon challenge as normal).

Would you like to do either of these icon set challenges (choose as many as you like)?

Challenge type you're interested in

5 icon set in two weeks
10 icon set in 1 month
7 icon set in 2 weeks
9 icon set in 3 weeks
12 Icon Set in a month
None of the above/Other

A few years ago, we had the Battle of the Nine (a nine image icon battle). You can see it here and then let me know if you'd be interested in another one. Everything would probably be the same except for the picture choice - anyone who signed up could have images in the battle (since this icontest has less active members now).

There's a typo, the text should read "Would you be interested in doing a 9-icon battle?"

Would be interested in doing a 9-Icon Battle?

Yes, I would participate.
I have no opinion/I'm a watcher.

Finally it's a 'help-wanted' ad. If anyone would like to help out here as a banner maker or even a co-mod who creates and runs challenges please comment or PM me.

All comments will be screened.
