I recently took over mod-ship of hero_stills although vanilla_pixie is to remain a maintainer. I would like to get the community up and running again. After some promotion and general pimping I hope to post a new challenge here. Feel free to promote it anywhere yourself :)

New layout and a new header are now up. Thank you to kf_creations for the lovely new community header and for offering to be banner maker for the community. Thanks!

I will be posting the new challenge on Friday October 10th.

Long time no hear, right?

I'm so terribly sorry I've neglected this group (and the other contests I run). My life has been pretty chaotic lately - I won't go into details (unless you're on my friends list and ask on my personal journal - not that I've been there either!), but I just haven't had time to myself at all.

So, I've finally come on here to let you know that I'm giving the contest to someone who will care for it as it deserves - please let me know if you would like to take it on, before I put it up on an adoption groupn this weekend...

I may be around at some point, but more as a contestant than a mod (though I want to remain a mod for the present), but it won't be for some time yet.

It was fun while it lasted though - for you as well I hope! I hope you can forgive my absence, but there's just been so much going on at home...

Michelle. x

You may have noticed that I haven't been as punctual as I should be recently. I apologise profusely for this, and can assure you that it's not me just being lazy, or not caring, or anything like that.

I've had a bit of bad luck lately - car accidents, job issues, a death in the family, an accident in the family, etc. On top of that I'm getting married in a little over 4 weeks' time, and my friend is getting married in just 2 weeks' time (yeah, we planned it well, huh?).

So, to keep it short, life is a bit of a nightmare for me!

I've been thinking about what I can do during the next few weeks, when I really need to concentrate on getting everything that I need to do before the wedding done, and getting work issues sorted out too. I didn't want to put the comm on a hiatus.

Once the current challenge (Challenge 12) is over, I will be releasing several challenges - enough for the number of weeks I will be indisposed (I've seen this done in other challenges before and I think it has worked quite well). When I get back from my honeymoon (mid-October) I will get back on track, as hopefully all the stress will be over (and I'll be feeling human again!).

I hope this is okay with you guys. I really don't want to inconvenience the comm, but I'm struggling with final wedding plans, and I really should be prioritising that right now. :O/

(This will be x-posted in all my comms)

There hasn't been any entries for Challenge 12 (Edmund Bertram). I'm sure I'm partly to blame, as I haven't been around the last few weeks, and I also realise it's the summer months so people are on holiday, etc...

I'm going to extend for a week to see if we can get some entries in. Please enter if you can!
