A plea - One of the "substitute people"
Can I substitute for Kirsten?

A plea
I know the VO fandom is in flux and there have been some problems in the past week or so, and I get that. Not sure I exactly followed what started what, who said what and so on, or why it all happened in the first place. But as I'm sure you all probably know by now, I somehow miss all that negative stuff and don't get in the middle of fandom disputes even if I *do* see things. Regardless of your stance in all this, I'm going to ask for some help.

In the vigorli_stills icon challenge community, there are only *three* people entered and one of those has only entered *one* icon (which is fine absolutely fine). But participation is so far down, I'm really concerned that this community is in serious probability of having to close down. I don't want that. I hope *you* don't want that either. I *love* this community like I love the Viggo/Orlando pairing and believe in the viability of both.

So if you're an icon maker, would like to *be* an icon maker--now's the time to test your skill and get busy by testing the waters and entering! The current challenge #128 is open until 7 pm tomorrow night (Saturday), so there's plenty of time left to get your submissions posted. The community and fandom can use your participation.

And just because it's my most favorite pic of them....

wow, I feel oblivious to what you're alluding to...um, I'll add it to my list, but I think I skipped it because I wasn't in love with the caps...and for other reasons...

I'm just trying to drum up participation. That's all. I swear!

I'm not a big fan of that fandom, but I would hate to see your comm die.

*hugs*

Thanks honey. Just trying to get participation up.

I wish I could! I would love to! The only problem is...I so totally suck at making icons. I've tried. And in all that I've made, I think maybe two have come out decent. But not nearly decent enough to put out there for other people. I've seen the quality of the icons on there! Hell, most of my icons are yours! lol There's just no way I could compete.

I know...I'm no help at all :(

*hugs* It's okay--just try and help us out by voting. Good enough for me! :)

It can't go down, it's part of my weekly routine! I'd miss something - I hope people are just busy and that it doesn't have anything to do with whatever happened in fandom.

I hope so too! I really love the fandom, it's participants and the community. I'd be adrift without any of those elements. I received about 4 more entrants, so I'm more optimistic now. I've just seen so many people leaving, cutting flists, in-fighting, and so on, I was seriously thinking this round of issues might actually kill the fandom. But thankfully, we seem to be plugging along.

*hugs*

Oh--and DITTO! ;)

I hope the comm picks up. It'd be sad seeing it go. This fandom seems so fragile these days. :sigh: Myself, I've been so dry in the creative department for so long. :[ I try to create things and nothing comes. It's so frustrating.
araestel From: araestel Date: March 3rd, 2008 03:18 am (UTC) (Link)
Trust me, we all hit the creative wall at times. *hugs*

I don't want to comm to go either and so far, it's still hanging on. I'll do my best to make sure it stays open. :)

I was actually able to make some icons this week so I'll be entering those. I guess sometimes maybe you just need a little push.

You do a great job. Participation was up last challenge from what I can see. :]

YAY!! I look forward to your entries!

Yes--it was way up this week! I think my post may have helped. :)
