MOD POST: Suggestion box  
You've heard me talk about it, and you've seen it on TV! (Well, okay, not really. Heh.) And here it finally is: the Official swicontest Suggestion Post!

As I mentioned earlier, I get a lot of awesome challenge suggestions from you guys, but my problem before was that if I didn't immediately take note of them, they'd get lost in the shuffle really really quickly. Posts have a high turnover rate at this comm because of our activity schedule, such that suggestion comments move off the main page very fast. I'm hoping to solve that with this Suggestion Box, and also to maybe encourage you guys to contribute themes that you would like to see on the community.

There aren't a lot of rules here. Just write me a comment with a brief description of your idea, click "Post" and you're good to go! Challenge suggestions can be Star Wars-related (for example, a specific SW character you want to see iconned, like Padmé or Vader or Wicket the Ewok) or not (for example, a theme like "love" or "innocence" or "betrayal"). It's up to you and your own creativity!

This post will be linked from each challenge entry, and when its challenge ideas are used, the user who suggested the theme will be given full credit.

Any questions? Feel free to drop me a line. Comments are unscreened. :)

luke and vader - past,present and future (you can do a luke and vader from each of the films,so you can have 6 challenges)
quotes but with another character - example, luke saying "i am your father"
the new jedi characters - good and bad
just text

How about a challenge about specific locations? More general like simply Naboo or specific places like the Temple.

I'm also seconding the text icons (just text).

And talking about text... what about a lyrics challenge where you have to use at least a specific amount of words (I've seen it with at least 3 words)... you can pick a specific song (which would be simpler to check) or have people choose their own lyrics.

Oh... just thought about it... how about a costume challenge? Like the dresses a specific person wears or a group of people (like the handmaidens of the Queen or the varying forms of the Jedi robes) or just the clothes generally.

*going through old challenges for caps*

I just realised that there never has been a challenge about Jar Jar Binks or Gungans in general.

Or how about general challenges about other non-human races?

*g* For some reason my prompt ideas come in unrelated spurts :)

All of this times 1000. We need more Jar Jar/Gungan love up in here.

Or for any theme, movie, whatever -- you give us the base already cut and cropped and we go from there. . . or you give us specific textures of any sort and we must use those and only those. . . or one where whatever the theme is, the icons must all be b&w. :)

How about the ships of Star Wars (battle ships, the Falcon, etc.).
Or places - like the Jedi temple, Kashyyyk.
A wookie theme, because we all love Wookies. :)
Or droids of Star Wars.
Boba Fett (and Jango Fett) theme.

Just some ideas I thought about while doing some screen captures for my site. :)

Oh! Just thought of another idea: book covers and posters of Star Wars. :)

This is rather odd, I suppose, but since you're doing costumes... I'm a Palpatine fan but not so great at making icons. Hardly anyone icons him before he's Emperor (that I've seen), so it would be nice if there was a pre-difigurement Palpatine contest.
