POSTING GUIDE

1
ABOUT & ICON TABLES


Because of the nature of this challenge, the way your icons are posted adds a lot to your final product. Here's a guide to making everything look shiny, as well as how to take care of some requirements that will keep everything organized around here.

[1] You do not need to make icons in order, or post all of them at once. However, posting them in order is highly recommended.

[2]Using a table is also not required, but again, strongly recommended.

Table generators:

Bauble

WAITING LIST

If the claim you want is taken, comment here to be put on the waiting list. Here's how this goes:

You can't have the same song being claimed for the same fandom at once. There's not much else to it. If I wanted to do the James Bond theme for Sailor Moon, someone else wouldn't be able to do it until I finished. They would be put on the waiting list. Easy enough, yes?

CLAIMING GUIDE

Because of the nature of this challenge being slightly different than most, here is a more detailed breakdown of the type of claims.

For all songs, please make a title icon, as well as one band icon.

FULL SONG/VERSE OR CHORUS RULES

In order to do a full song claim, you must use at least 90% of the words so that when you read the icons in the table, it's more or less like reading the lyrics to the song. (Approximate percentage, but we'll be able to tell you did it wrong if every other word is missing :P) This means you cannot edit the lyrics, though tense changes and word form changes are allowed.

Example: Is to was, 'cause to because

You may use any amount of words per icon, but again, they must be in order so that when read out it forms the song. You may also double-up a word if you so choose.

Example: "let me take you", in one icon, "take you down," in the next

You only need to do the chorus/repeating sections ONCE. It is up to you whether you double post them so that the song reads out.

You have 100 days to complete this claim from the day you are approved.

Chorus or Verse Claims follow the same rules, except instead of using the entire song, you use the chorus, a verse of your choosing, just the bridge, or any consecutive section(s).

Okay
Ex: Verse one
Ex: Chorus
Ex: Bridge
Ex: Verse one and chorus

Not okay
Ex: Verse one and verse three
Ex: Verse one and chorus if skipping second verse, or verse one and verse two if skipping chorus

You have 30 days to complete a claim of a single verse or chorus, 50 days for two consecutive sections.

These rules would leave your claim looking something like this: (underlined word represents an icon)

STRAWBERRY FIELDS FOREVER - THE BEATLES

let me take you down because I'm going to Strawberry Fields nothing was real

etc.

As you can see, the closer you can stick to the original lyrics, the better the completed product is going to be.

GENERAL SONG

50 icons, manipulating the lyrics however you would like. Unlike in the other challenges, you can add or take away words as much as you want, as long as some original lyrics remain.

Example: "About a girl" could become "it's always about a girl."

For this claim, please list or label your claims with the lyric you are manipulating in the alt-tags for the icons or any other way you prefer, as long as we know what lyrics are associated with which image.

Please comment with any questions/concerns/suggestions.
