Welcome to nerd_dork_geek, a turbo lims challenge community dedicated to the lovely Elizabeth Mitchell.

What is a LIMS challenge?
You create an icon out of a screencap provided. You may add text, textures, blends, colors - basically anything you like to make an icon you like. Excluded are animations.
The difference to an icon challenge is: you not only vote for your favorite icon, the main focus is on the one you like least, though you don't vote according to your personal preferences but the way it was done. For example: don't vote out an icon because you don't like large spaces or a color that was used on the icon.
You also state the reason why you vote that particular icon out. I hereby reserve the right not to count votes of personal taste. A LIMS challenge is supposed to help us develop in our skills and explore new techniques. Of course you should have fun, too =)

So what does TURBO LIMS mean?
We got the idea from turbo_lims. Regular LIMS challenges take up a lot of time and go on forever. Usually there is one screencap posted and a certain amount of time given to create an icon out of it and post it, voting follows.
Turbo LIMS puts the challenges together as one and gives all the screencaps at the beginning of a phase. Of course you'll be given more time to make your icons. By the deadline you have to post one icon for each screencap and submit them all to the challenge post. Voting will follow the deadline for one screencap at a time.

What happens once voting starts?
You vote for three favourite icons plus a special category. Most voted for icons will earn points: 1st place: 5 points, 2nd place: 4 points, 3rd place: 3 points, Special category: 3 points, Mod's choice: 2 points.
With every voting round you may earn more points which will be added to have an overall score for every participant at the end of the phase and determine the winners.

What screencaps can I expect to work with?
This being all about Elizabeth Mitchell, the screencaps will include her in any way possible from TV show or movie roles, interviews, candids, photoshoots, appearances etc.

I don't think I'm good enough for this.
Nonsense. It doesn't matter if you just started making icons or have done so for years. Every skill level is welcomed here and we encourage everyone to participate. This community is here for learning, sharing and creating. So go for it, sign up and enjoy the ride.

Hi, I was just wondering where you got this layout from. It's lovely and I would love to see how it fits on another community of my own.
