I have a difficult announcement to make. rhyannonwrites and I have been giving it a lot of thought, both together and individually, and we regret to say that as of the last challenge, we'll no longer be moderating xmen_stillness. Our time commitments and priorities have changed since we volunteered to take over this community, and it's become too difficult to put the energy into xmen_stillness that an icon contest community needs to be successful, especially one of this size.If you are interested in taking over modding, please reply to this post. Because it's a huge amount of work with a small amount of rewards, I'd suggest that two or more people take over in order to keep it manageable, unless there's one person with a whole lot of time and patience.I will create banners for the last two challenges before I turn everything over or shut down, depending on the interest, but we will be on hiatus from new challenges until new mods take over.Thank you to everyone who participated in our challenges.

I know I'm behind on banners, so I will definitely get this challenge and last week's done as soon as I can! Don't forget to enter Challenge 88: UXM 482. If you haven't checked out that challenge, there's also a digital version of the comic available to download, in case you'd like to read it before you make icons. :)
Whether you love or hate the plot in the most recent arc of Uncanny X-Men by Ed Brubaker and Billy Tan, you can't argue that the art is FIERCE, and begs to be made into icons every month. This challenge features pages from the most recent issue. It just came out this week, so there are some plot spoilers if you haven't read it. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.Icons must be submitted by Friday, January 12 at 10:00 p.m CST- You may submit up to three icons!- Please do not post your icon entry anywhere else until after the voting period.- You may blend the pictures together, but you may not use the same picture in more than one icon (by picture, I mean comic frame, you can use more than one frame from a single page if you like).- Please do not use any other images in your icons, other than those provided.- If any rule breaking occurs, the icon in question will be disqualified.- Submit icons by posting them as a comment to this post!( Spoilers AheadCollapse )ETA: If you haven't had a chance to buy this comic and want to read it before you look at the images, I have uploaded it here: http://download.yousendit.com/ACC33B2B0BE52A96 You need cdisplay or another sequential image display program to read it.

Only 3 more hours to enter the Quicksilver Challenge. Wow, we got a lot of icons today, but I'd still love to see more!Also, here's a shameless plug for our other community: Since you guys loved the kissy challenge a few weeks ago with the x-men, we're doing a similar theme at comicontest this week. There are no x-men images, but there are some of the amazingly sexy images of Hawkeye and Scarlet Witch from the latest New Avengers, as well as many other kissykissy comics. Check that challenge out here and enter by Sunday night
Icons for Challenge 87: Quicksilver are due tomorrow night. We only have 3 icons entered so far, so please please PLEASE go check it out and enter if you have a chance.
