Round 3 Sign-Ups  
Welcome to the third round of frontier_lims!


Changes and admin notes concerning this round:
Firstly, I have decided not to ask for volunteers to make banners. I'll be making them for all weeks and trialling how that runs for me time-wise.

Secondly, I have taken the feedback provided to me by isiscaughey and vitallani (thank you!) in the R2 Feedback Poll and hopefully improved my cap selections. I have tried to focus more on DS9 as I confess it hadn't been getting as much coverage as the other incarnations probably because I'm personally less familiar with it (but I'm rewatching the series again as I type this!). Trying to balance an even number of caps from all incarnations has meant there can be up to 15 caps provided now. I've also included a challenge focusing upon the Animated Series.

And lastly, the community has, as usual, had an update in the graphics department. The banner now showcases all the Star Trek Captains. Go check it out! I hope you all enjoy it :).


The Lowdown:
frontier_lims (Final Frontier LIMS) is an all-inclusive Star Trek challenge. But what does that mean? That means we'll be using screencaptures from all incarnations (just to be clear - The Original Series and its movies, The Next Generation and its movies, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, Enterprise, and Star Trek 2009). Each week participants are provided with between 5-12 caps and are assigned the task of making one icon entry unless otherwise stated. These caps may be chosen by incarnation, theme, gender, episode, colour etc. You will be informed of the challenge requirements.

Each challenge is open for five days, with voting commencing after and lasting two days. Hence, each challenge lasts a week in total. I usually run the challenges by a set schedule.

Results are announced after the voting deadline and, as is the nature of LIMS, participants are eliminated. At frontier_lims, two users are eliminated per challenge - unless there are ties. In additional, two users are selected by voters for Members' Choice and two users are selected by me for Mod's Choice.

For more information, please read frontier_lims's user info.


A word on LIMS:
What are LIMS all about? Why participate in them? Is it about winning? Our sister community, sg1_lims, has a fantastic post here where all those questions are answered.

In addition, another sister community, starwars_lims has an excellent guide about how to give good crit when voting. You can access it here.

In short, LIMS are about obtaining feedback and improving your icon style. frontier_lims is not the place for dramatics if you're eliminated. We're here for crit, pleasure, and meeting other iconmakers.


Caps Folders:
At frontier_lims, caps for future weeks will be posted ahead of time. Frontier's header bar will be regularly updated with links to new caps folders. At the moment, I have the first ten weeks uploaded. Any and all feedback on caps folders is welcome (future suggestions for challenges included).

. 1 - The Women
. 2 - Bajorans
. 3 - The Men
. 4/5 - Book Covers
. 6 - Smiles
. 7 - Chief Engineers
. 8 - Secondary Characters
. 9 - The Animated Series
. 10 - Random

Amsie: Geeks At Workshadowserenity on January 14th, 2011 11:59 am (UTC)
Hello! I'm Amsie - nice to meet you! :)

A skip is for when you can't submit an icon for a particular week - due to time constraints, caps aren't working for you etc. Instead of eliminating you, I use the skip you have in reserve to take you onto the next week. So if you have two skips, that means you can skip over two challenges.

I've signed you up with one skip. To receive another, please advertise the comm using one of the buttons above.
