Round 1210  
I'm kind of at a loss with this community.
Can I get some feedback?

We have one person who has entered icons for round 1210. And they are awesome icons!
One person. The round has run for 3 weeks.

Is there no longer insterest in this community?
Do I need to put up reminders?
Should I put this on hiatus for a while?
Should I hand this over to a new mod with new fresh ideas?

Well, I know for me I lose interest in submitting when the winners haven't been announced from the previous challenge. Also I think if you only had one challenge a week then everyone would submit to that one and you'd have more icons in one challenge as opposed to being split over two challenges. Plus reminders never hurt!

That's a fair point.

Whatever happened to the sports/ angry eyes challenge? My boyfriend wanted to enter that challenge too, he posted one icon but you didn't put it up for voting. He sent you a message about it but you didn't reply.

I like this community and the challenges! The reason why I'm not always submitting is because I have a 10 month old son who takes up a lot of my time :)

Maybe you need a co-mod and/ or banner makers to lighten your load?

I didn't get a message about a challenge. Did he comment in a thread or message me on my page? I'm terribly sorry I missed his comment/message to me.

I am behind on the banners. I'm hoping to have those up today.

I have had a hard time finding someone who wants to co-mod with me. rhye was my co-mod and had to step down for completely understandable reasons. However I'm running behind here for similar reasons (new baby) as well as my job picking up (I'm busiest Sept-December).

I'm not trying to make 'excuses' as I know my dedication here as been lacking and it might be a circular effect. My attention was split and then entries and voting went down so my efforts here went down some, so entries and voting went down more...and so on. I'd like to get this back on track if there is enough interest. I'm not at all against a co-mod, or even is someone else wants to take over.

He commented on the challenge thread (sports/ angry eyes) and sent you a private message.

If you need some help with the banners I'd be happy to help :)

Maybe you should try having a poll for what the next theme should be, for example you post three suggestions and let everyone vote what they want for the next challenge.

Have you heard about the icontest_promo community? Maybe you should promote your community there?

Another thing I just thought about. How about a header challenge? Maybe a new layout would spice things up :)

I'm so sorry again. Please relay that to your boyfriend. His entry showed up in the spam folder which I didn't know existed until I went looking for his entry today. I don't have a PM from him...unless there is a folder in my personal PMs that I didn't see. Again I'm sorry. Now that I know that is there I can look for it.

I can't promote this community in most icon places because we aren't a stills community. But I will look into that one.

And yes, we are due for a new header. :)

Lots to consider.

I think making it one challenge might indeed make it so that people give more imput. I love this comm, and I try to participate as much as I can, but it's not always easy to find the time.

I totally understand the time.
And all feedback helps me. :)
