LOST icon & graphics challenge

Island Rumble Community Orientation

Welcome to the Island! This is a rumble style icon challenge for the television series Lost (2004-2010). Members of all skill levels are welcome and learning new things about making icons is encouraged. We will mainly focus on icon making challenges but if there is enough member interest, we will have challenges for making larger graphics such as wallpapers. We will cover every season per challenge with a different season per round. That way we will have a large variety of episodes, characters & scenes to choose from when making entries.
Our main challenge here is a "rumble" style challenge. The rules are based on the format started at disney_rumble.
A rumble challenge is similar to a "L.I.M.S" or last-icon-maker standing community but there are no votes for the "least" icon. There are no negative votes or player eliminations. Every one is allowed to stay in the round until the end (unless they choose to withdraw or drop out). The winners will be determined by the total amount of points earned. This kind of challenge is also known as high-score-wins challenge. Occasionally we host other challenges here such as our Lost "23-in-23" icon challenge.
