Doctor Who rumble style icon challenge
Welcome to who_rumble, an icon challenge dedicated to the new version of the BBC TV show "Doctor Who". If you're wondering what a Rumble is, it's quite similar to a LIMS, but without the eliminations. The participants earn points throughout the round and the person with the most points at the end of the round is the winner. This comm was very much inspired by plusone_rumble, run by 00mina and quiddity_
-Each round will consist of ten challenges.
-To participate in the challenges, you must be signed up for the round and be a member of the community.
-The challenges will focus on all aspects of New Who: Doctors, companions, episodes, actors/actresses, etc, etc.
-Points are awarded for each challenge (first place = 5 points, second place = 4 points, third place = 3 points, special category = 2 points, mod's choice = 1 point); 1 point is also received just for submitting your icon in each challenge.
-You may also receive bonus points for promoting the community during the sign-ups for each round.
-At the end of each round, the person with the highest number of points will be awarded first place, second highest will win second place, and third highest will receive third place.
-You MUST submit an icon for the first challenge of each round or you'll be disqualified.
-After the first challenge, you can miss challenges, but if you miss three in a row you'll be disqualified.
-If you need to drop out for any reason, let me know in a comment to any post.
-You must be signed up for the round to enter the challenges.
-One icon per person.
-All icons must be made brand spankin' new for each challenge and must be of your own creation.
-No animation unless otherwise specified.
-Icons must meet LJ standards: 100x100 or less, 40KB or less.
-Do not post your icons anywhere until the winners of the challenge have been announced.
-Read the submission rules in each post CAREFULLY as they may change depending on the challenge.
-Now that you've read the basic rules, you're ready to sign up! Please include the phrase "Girl Who Waited" somewhere in your comment so that I know you've read the rules.

-If you enter an icon in a challenge, you should vote. You do get a point for each vote you cast. A consistent lack of voting may result in disqualification.
-Everyone can vote so long as they have an LJ, regardless of whether you're a member or participating in the round. Anonymous votes will not be counted.
-Do not vote for yourself.
-You can ask your friends to vote, and are encouraged to do so, but do not tell them to vote for you.
-You'll be voting for four categories: first, second, third, and a special category.
-You are encouraged to give reasons for your votes, but it's not required.
At the beginning of each round, you'll be able to earn up to 5 bonus points for promoting the community.
-You'll earn one point for promoting in your userinfo.
-You'll earn two points for making a public post in your personal journal, graphics journal, etc.
-Posts made in promotion comms (like icontest_promo) will not be accepted.
-Please don't promote in any general Doctor Who comms, just to avoid spamming (unless you run it, of course). I'll hit up a few of them, but keep your promotions to your own personal journals/comms.
-To earn your points, provide me with the links to each userinfo/post in the sign up post.

If you'd like, you can use these little banners for your promoting (you can also make your own, if you do, let me know and I'll add it here!)
