Read this Mod Post if you've never read any other.

I'd call this a final reminder for Challenge 156, but as it were, I'm sure it'll have to be extended another week. There are still only four entries - two of them being my own.

I dunno, you guys. I understand that I've been pretty hit and miss in the past months, but that's life. I've done my best to keep the place going. I also understand that it can be time consuming to find specific pictures, but it's not like you can't type the names of Sandra and some random person in my "list" into Google and find pictures easy either. And I ALSO understand that it's the end of the school year for a lot of us (myself included), and there's studying to be done, etc., but it kind of feels like this has been coming for a while to me.

Consider this an open thread where you can leave your thoughts regarding the community. Are we doing too many special challenges now? Do you not like having to find your own pictures so frequently? Are we all just busy? Am I just a crappy mod?

PLEASE respond.

There is absolutely nothing you can say here that can offend me. Promise. I'm not one of those people who takes themselves too seriously. I'm just looking for some input here. I never get it from but one or two people. I'd like to get it from all of you now.

Special Challenge - Palling around~
There's been brief discussion in the past of including a challenge of Sandra and other people - and this is it!
Go find pictures of Sandy & co.: anything goes. Want to use some recent(ish) pictures of Sandy and Ryan Reynolds, Betty White, Meryl Streep, or even presenting Colin Firth with his Oscar? Maybe you want to flash back to Nicole Kidman or Hugh Grant funtimes? Seriously, pick anyone! The only restriction? Pictures must be out of character. That means no screencaps or promo shoots. However, you can use any appearance you want, be they premiers, award shows, or even talk shows (what's that? you love it when Sandy and Craig Ferguson get together? Free game, baby!).

* Submit up to 5 icons.
* Icons must feature Sandra with someone else
* All icons do not have to be with the same people (make five icons of Sandra with different people if you like!)
* Images must be out of character. Screencaps and promo stills are not allowed in this challenge. That is, only "candid" images are allowed - red carpet, interviews, award shows and talk shows are all fine! Just no photoshoots.
* Blending is allowed.
* You may not reuse pictures.
* No animations please.
* Text and other effects are permitted.
* Keep your entries anonymous until the winners are posted.
* Submit your icon(s) to this post. All comments will be screened.
* Deadline is Saturday, April 30 @ 12PM (noon) ET

Some Sandra Bullock Image Galleries (feel free to use others too!)

Sorry for the absence, guys. I'm glad I gave you fair warning! Ha.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. I typed this up pretty quickly, because I desperately need to get back to schoolwork.

And I'll put the winners for challenge 155 up tomorrow.

Beautiful entries, everyone! Collapse )

Unfortunately, I'm going to have to throw another brief hiatus up here. Spring Break is coming up for me, and I'm going on an 8 day mission trip which is going to get in the way of modding the next challenge if I put it up now. As I'll be gone all the way from the 2nd to the 9th, I think it may be best that we put this on hold until the 16th (unless I manage to miraculously get a challenge up on the 10th, which could happen, but I guarantee nothing).

Stay tuned. I'll be back soon!
