If anyone would like to contribute a banner to the community, for this month and the following months, just send them in to be_compromised@hotmail.com If we have more than one by the end of a month we've done votes/challenges, but lately I just collect them and use them all :) No theme, unless you feel inspired by the time of year.

Banner Challenge

We only had one banner entry for this month, so I was going to use that one, but the sizing didn't work :( Instead I'm using one of the unused banners from the last challenge set, by [livejournal.com profile] frea_o. People in the Southern Hemisphere, have a seasonally appropriate banner!

If anyone would like to contribute a banner to the community, because it is nice when we get a shiny new banner at the start of each month, just send them in to be_compromised@hotmail.com If we have more than one by the end of the month I'll do a vote/challenge. No theme, unless you feel inspired by the time of year.

*sneaks in sneaky assassin style* May I remind you of the deadline for the July, August, and September Challenge? It's June 22nd. In the meantime this was our May winner from [livejournal.com profile] slytheringurrl

Happy First Of May! *sneaks out*
 
 
01 April 2014 @ 08:27 pm
Our winning banners are Banner Two by [livejournal.com profile] whiskyinmind, Banner One by [livejournal.com profile] slytheringurrl, and Banner Five by [livejournal.com profile] whiskyinmind. These will be our banners for April, May, and June :D Thank you also to [livejournal.com profile] i_llbedammned for Banner Three and Banner Six, and to [livejournal.com profile] frea_o for Banner Four. All your banners are wonderful!

How the new banner challenge works: each challenge has three categories, two of which are themes and one which is a creator's choice. People can make a maximum of TWO banners, but the second banner must be for a different category. Please submit your banners to be_compromised@hotmail.com with your LJ username. (If you have problems with submitting by email please let me know.) Banners are then saved to the community's photobucket, so they'll be anon and you don't have to worry about hotlinking. We then post all of the banners anonymously and everyone in the community (including the makers) vote for the next (three) months worth of community banners - voters will pick their three favourite banners in order of preference.

The Rules:
1) Everyone is invited to play, seriously, everyone, the more the merrier!
2) Banners must be safe for work.
3) Banners must have a width of 800 and a height of 350 and preferably be a png or jpg file.
4) We will make your banners anonymous, so please don’t tell or show anyone what you’ve made. Once the winner has been chosen though you’re free to share your banner wherever you like.
5) When new films etc come out (Thor 2, Agents of SHIELD, Winter Solider) please don’t use images from those until we say it’s safe so no one gets spoiled! (If you want to use something and you're not sure if it counts as a spoiler, PM me.)
6) You can submit no more than TWO banners.
7) Banners should contain both Clint and Natasha (unless challenged otherwise).

Categories For This Round
Category One: non-film media - use images and/or quotes from the comics, tv shows, anything but the MCU
Category Two: bright - this can be as in colours, summer, blindingly white, lens flare, play with light and brightness
Category Three: creator's choice - anything goes

Deadline Sunday 22nd June
 
 
28 March 2014 @ 09:18 pm
Calling all people of the bar: after somewhat of an absence it's that banner challenge voting time again! Our banner makers were challenged to make a maximum of two banners from three categories, as long as each banner was for a different category. Their options this time were shades of grey, scenery, and creator's choice. They've made us the wonderful, now here's where you come in: we need you to vote for the next THREE MONTHS' BANNERS.

Vote by commenting with your favourite three in order of preference. Your first choice will be assigned three points, your second two points, and your third choice one point. The three banners with the most points will be our banners for April, May, and June. Any questions, just shout :) Otherwise, it's on to the pretties:

BANNERS BEHIND THE CUT )

VOTING DEADLINE: 5pm GMT Tuesday 1st April
 
 
27 February 2014 @ 11:08 pm
Okay, it seems the banner challenge isn't going to happen right now. If everyone is off hibernating before Winter Solider and busy with work and things, so it goes :) So what I'm going to do is say we'll keep our current banner for another month and extend this challenge until 27th March. That's a another whole month, graphics-lovers! Spread the word and get creative!

How the new banner challenge works: each challenge will have three categories, two of which are themes and one which will be creator's choice. People can make a maximum of TWO banners, but the second banner must be for a different category. Banners will be sent to be_compromised@hotmail.com (So banner posts will no longer have screened comments and I can reply to you when you more easily when you add questions etc with submissions. If you have problems with submitting by email please let me know.) Banners will then be saved to the community's photobucket, so they'll be anon and you don't have to worry about hotlinking. Then we’ll post all of the banners anonymously and everyone in the community can vote for their favourite (including the makers).

We'll then vote for the next (three) months worth of community banners - voters will pick their three favourite banners in order of preference.

The Rules:
1) Everyone is invited to play, seriously, everyone, the more the merrier!
2) Banners must be safe for work.
3) Banners must have a width of 800 and a height of 350 and preferably be a png or jpg file.
4) We will make your banners anonymous, so please don’t tell or show anyone what you’ve made. Once the winner has been chosen though you’re free to share your banner wherever you like.
5) When new films etc come out (Iron Man 3, Thor 2, Agents of SHIELD) please don’t use images from those until we say it’s safe so no one gets spoiled! (If you want to use something and you're not sure if it counts as a spoiler, PM me.)
6) You can submit no more than TWO banners.
7) Banners should contain both Clint and Natasha (unless challenged otherwise).

Categories For This Round
Category One: scenery - it's all about where they are. Put our assassins on a mission in Budapest, on holiday on a beach, training at SHIELD, at home... Location, location, location.
Category Two: shades of grey - black, white, grey, greyscale, but no colours. Saturation zero.
Category Three: creator's choice - anything goes

You have until Tuesday to make banners if you want a new banner at the top of the comm for Valentine's! Otherwise we'll just keep the same banner until March 1st.

Speaking of: the deadline for March, April, and May banners is 24th February.

When you get a free minute from all the Valentine's prompts that you're filling ;D

Hello, hello, hello and welcome to a new round of banner making! Read carefully folks, because this post has two challenges to sink your teeth into.

FEBRUARY'S QUICK AND DIRTY CHALLENGE

That is, the banner making, not the assassins *whistles innocently*.

You have until 5pm GMT Tuesday February 11th to submit banners with a theme of love so we have something shiny for the top of our comm on February 14th.

Banners must: be safe for work, have a width of 800 and a height of 350, be a png or jog file, anonymous, and contain both Clint and Natasha. You can make up to TWO banners each for this challenge! Please submit either the actual image or a link to the image to be_compromised@hotmail.com (If you have problems submitting by email let me know)



And then we're going to try something new for banner challenges this year, based on feedback and tweaks. Let's see how this works out...

How the new banner challenge works: each challenge will have three categories, two of which are themes and one which will be creator's choice. People can make a maximum of TWO banners, but the second banner must be for a different category. Banners will be sent to be_compromised@hotmail.com (So banner posts will no longer have screened comments and I can reply to you when you more easily when you add questions etc with submissions. If you have problems with submitting by email please let me know.) Banners will then be saved to the community's photobucket, so they'll be anon and you don't have to worry about hotlinking. Then we’ll post all of the banners anonymously and everyone in the community can vote for their favourite (including the makers).

You'll have longer to make your banners because we'll then vote for the next three months worth of community banners (in a similar way to how we voted for January's banner - voters will pick their three favourite banners in order of preference).

Hopefully this will mean as we only need a minimum of 4 banners every three months we don't have to beg, people have more time to make banners, and we still get a new banner every month! It was also suggested that we have something tutorials/tips orientated, sound good?

new rules, same as the old rules, but you can only make TWO banners )

SO THIS IS WHAT THE FIRST BANNER CHALLENGE LOOKS LIKE:
FOR MARCH, APRIL, AND MAY

(so the next challenge will be set in March for June, July, and August's banners)

Category One: scenery - it's all about where they are. Put our assassins on a mission in Budapest, on holiday on a beach, training at SHIELD, at home... Location, location, location.
Category Two: shades of grey - black, white, grey, greyscale, but no colours. Saturation zero.
Category Three: creator's choice - anything goes

Deadline: when we get this rolling over properly you should get nearly three months for banner making, but for this first one the deadline is Monday 24th February.


So, questions? Shoot! Theme suggestions? Gimme! Any feedback? Love!
