I've been meaning to do this for awhile, so here it is. ^_^ A poll listing most of the community's past challenges. I'm asking that you check off the challenges you'd like to see repeated/more often. Challenges that do not receive more than 5 votes will not be used again. As for the others, I will place their importance by the popularity of their votes.
Thank you soooo much to those of you who will take the time to complete this poll, making BSSM Battle a better place to icon!

BATTLE 16: ROUND 3: VOTING

Thank you for taking the time to vote. The decisions you are about to make will heavily influence who goes on the Round 4, the Final Round. So please, grant yourself plenty of time to view all icons carefully and objectively.

VOTING: Guidelines
■ This is not a LIMS--comments and criticism is not permitted.
■ You are asked to judge icons in an objective manner. Being objective means appraising these icons without personal bias and prejudice. Do not simply choose icons based on their aesthetic value; instead consider the technical talent involved: cropping, composition, color, typography.
■ Do not vote for icons based on who you think made the icon, whether it be the actual icon-maker or the character identity.
All challengers are expected to vote, excluding their own match.

VOTING: Rules
■ Vote for the one icon in each set.
Vote for the icon you feel was the LEAST successful in executing the challenge.
■ Vote for every set. Exception: if you are a current challenger, simply label your set as your character name but vote in all others. Example:
#001 : A
#002 : Sailormoon
■ Do not vote more than once.
■ Do not reveal your character identity in order to obtain votes. Your character identity must be kept secret until you are either eliminated or the Battle ends.

VOTING: Ballot
For your convenience, copy and paste the following box of code when you are ready to vote. Simply delete the portion you do not agree with, for example, turning "#001: A or B" to "#001 : B", thus making B your choice for least favorite.




voting deadline is TONIGHT, July 20th

BATTLE 16: PRELIMINARY: RESULTS
THIS IS THE BATTLE 16 PRELIMINARY RESULTS
Below are the character identities of all challengers. The identities of those who are currently participating in Battle will be revealed as they are eliminated.
The number #/# beside each name is your resulting rank from preliminary voting. The lower your rank, the better you did. 1/15 meaning you ranked 1st out of 15 participants; the higher the number, the lower your rank. Ties receive the same rank.

If you would like to adopt an icon, you must credit the person who made it.
If you want to adopt an icon whose identity is not revealed, please wait before using it so you will remember to credit properly.
