Feel free to post the link to voting to your friends (without letting them know which icon is yours, of course!) and also promote the community to any icon makers you may know! The more participation, the more fun the challenges will be!

Also, if anyone would like to volunteer to make a psd for a future round, feel free! Just try to make sure to have a variety of adjustable layers, and perhaps a texture or text layer (though this isn't required!). Comment on any of the posts and I'll be glad to use it for a future challenge.

Hello and welcome to psd_challenge! Posts are friends-only so please join here in order to view the posts and participate! If you have any comments or suggestions, or would like to affiliate, feel free to comment on this post.

A little history...
This idea was originally started back in April of 2007 by lovelamp under the name fixthisicon. The premise was simple: provide icon makers a psd file of an icon and, without adding layers, alter the existing file to create something fresh and (hopefully) better than the original. The community grew quite popular, with challenges regularly receiving up to 60 entries. At a point, the community switched moderators for a number of challenges and eventually became inactive.

psd_challenge is here to emulate that success and hopefully be an exciting and refreshing addition to the lj icon community! Full credit for the concept, rules, and explanation for challenges are to be directed towards the original community.
