Welcome to mod_20in20. This is a community for people who moderate and participate in the various 20in20 icontests/communities. The idea for this group came from mod_stillness and mod_lims. Since 20in20 comms are popping up all over the place now, I figured it would be great to get a group for the mods/participants of those types of communities
What is a 20in20 community?
The idea for a 20in20 community first came about with celeb20in20. The mods there decided to format their contest around a game on the tv show Rove Live, where contestants could win $20 in 20 seconds by answering questions. The idea of the group is to take a character/tv show/movie/object and make 20 icons in 20 days using themes and categories provided by the moderator. Each round includes 10 themes (1 icon each), 1 Category (5 icons) and 5 Artist's Choice icons = 20 icons. Voting is generally a week long and is a little more involved than most groups. There are usually many winners per round.
So you want to make a 20in20 community, what do you do?
Make sure that the community you want to create isn't already on the list below. Create the community. A lot of new communities have taken their rules from celeb20in20, and have tweaked them some to fit their community. However, I suggest that you credit celeb20in20 for the idea/rules/etc. Also, a basic understanding of html (specifically tables), polls, etc is always helpful.
Once you have created your community, make a post to this community so that it can be added to the master list.
What do the moderators of a 20in20 community post here?
As long as it deals with running your community, it is allowed:
- Discuss moderator questions, like voting methods, voting/challenge schedules, layout suggestions.
- Need advice on dealing with a rule breaker/cheater?
- Did you discover a cheater/troll in your community? Share it here with us, let everyone know about it so they can keep a look out in their communities.
- Want to learn how to make/find better screen caps?
- Need help figuring out themes for your challenge?
- Are you looking for communities to affiliate with?
- Need someone to make some screen caps or winner/award banners for you?
- Do you need a co-mod or someone to take over your 20in20 community?
- And much more...
It is also encouraged to post banners with your posts. Every one loves shiny pictures! :) As long as they aren't bigger than 400x400px.
What if I need voters?
There are several groups that can also help with votes including: icontest_needs and icvotelove. However, we will not begrudge you asking for any help here :)
What if I'm not a mod of a 20in20 community?
You may post questions, concerns regarding the challenge. Please be polite when posing concerns. Everyone here is to behave like a mature adult. We do not allow bashing, criticizing, or hating.
It is preferable that you only post your 20in20 groups here as there is mod_stillness for stillness comms and mod_lims for lims comms. But, it's alright if you post your other groups along with 20in20 groups.
