Welcome to Naruto: Last Icon Maker Standing! On the surface, this is just another Naruto icontest... a series of challenges will be presented to participants, but there's a twist! In the vein of our beloved ninjas, this is an icon-ing fight to the death finish! And then there will only be one... the Last Icon Maker Standing. This community is open to everyone, but you have to be REALLY confident in your icon-making skills because we'll be voting participants OUT of the competition based on their submissions.

Good luck and godspeed, icon-nins.

Rules for Icon-nins
1) You must sign up prior to the start of the game in order to participate! Sign-ups for Session 4 are now CLOSED!

2) If you sign up, you're agreeing to participate in all challenges. Failure to participate in a challenge will result in disqualification. (And you don't want that.) Everybody is entitled to one "drop out" week, but only if they comment on THIS POST. To be fair to everyone, in the next challenge a drop-out participates in, they will be penalized with one vote. That just means a drop-out will have to work a little bit harder, but that's okay... because a drop-out can beat a genius with hard work. ^.~ Drop outs will not be allowed as the game enters its last three rounds!

3) SCHEDULE: Monday - new challenge; Tuesday-Saturday - Previous round results, Submission; Sunday-Monday - Voting

4) Vote for the icons you like the least, not for your favorites! All votes will be screened. Please vote with a valid reason in mind. A valid reason is based on design and not on something silly like not liking the character/pairing/etc. in the icon.

5) To make sure that you've read the rules: Please put "That's my ninja way!" in your sign up comment. ^_^

Submission Guidelines
1) Icons cannot be animated. Icons must be 100x100.

2) In challenges where a specific image is not given, you cannot use fanart or doujinshi. Official manga and anime images only!

3) Your icons must be FRESH for each challenge!

4) Participants will submit the icons to that week's challenge post, all submissions will be screened.

5) Icons are to be submitted in this way:

Voting: How it Works
1) Every week participants will vote people out of the game. The amount of people cut each week depends on how many people are in the game/participate in the round. That will be specified every vote.

2) Voting Format: Icon # - Valid reason for selection

3) There will also be a bonus vote based on the mechanics of design, such as "best crop" or "best colors." No reasoning is required unless you want to comment on it.

Rules for Non-Participants
1) If you want to keep tabs on the competition, you're welcome to friend the community!^^

2) Please don't take the icons without permission.

3) You can't vote. Don't try.

4) Okay. I lied. You do get to vote, but your vote is different. Spectators get to vote on their one very favorite icon of the bunch. The lucky icon maker will get the title of Spectator's Choice.

The Higher Ranks
In this icontest, it's possible to ascend from Genin, to Chuunin, and to Jounin! Who knows what awaits those who make it even further? *shrugs* You have to play to find out!
