Now it's time for challenge 4!
I'm so pleased to see this community off to a great come-back :D

Episode synopsis:
The crew are being deafened by the sudden alarm of a Paddac Beacon - a Peacekeeper device that is still implanted in Moya. Since the crew broke off Moya's control collar to free the ship and themselves, the collar's signals haven't been received and now, after a predetermined time, the Paddac Beacon has sounded.

It's not just sound either as it's using Moya's hull as a system for broadcasting a signal telling Peacekeepers exactly where Moya is. There seems no way to remove the device so Crichton suggests they land Moya in a planet's swamp to muffle the signal as much as they can.

On the planet, Zhaan and Rygel try to cut the device free of Moya while Crichton and the others search for an element that will help ease Moya's pain during the operation.

Unfortunately, Moya's dramatic landing has been spotted by the natives - who have never before encountered alien life. Crichton, hardly familiar with aliens himself, has to convince the natives to help - all the while knowing that Moya is sinking into the swamp and may not survive long.

The Rules

1) All icons, wallpapers, graphics, and vids submitted for episodic challenges must pertain to the current challenge. This means you can't incorporate images from other episodes into your work, even if they've already been covered.

Thematic challenge submissions must pertain to the current theme, however any relevant images may be used regardless of episode.

2) Comment, comment, comment! We all love to know our work is appreciated, even if people don't take our stuff. So always comment any time you feel moved to say anything even if you want to offer suggestions, just be polite.

3) Credit: give credit where credit is due. Let people know where you got your caps, your brushes, your fonts. And if you take anything, be sure to follow the poster's rules for their art. This means no stealing. Stealing is bad, and you will be kicked out for doing so.

4) If you're posting, please indicate preferred image usage in your post and be specific so that there's no confusion. If your stuff's display only, or up for grabs, let us know. Customizable? You got it: let us know.

5) Personal journals: You want to link to your journal? Great!! But please, follow these rules: A) Give us some sort of teaser to let us know what we're looking at. B) Indicate in your link that we're going to your journal and link directly to the post itself. C) If it's friends-only please indicate this in the post as well.

6) LJ-Cuts: Use an LJ-cut if you post more than three icons, or if you have graphics bigger than a thumbnail preview. If there's a chance your work contains questionable material such as profanity, character-bashing, etc., please also indicate this in the cut as well. If there's any questions on content please ask a mod.

7) See something you really like, but aren't sure how to do it for yourself? Try a couple things: 1) ask the artist. Chances are, they can give you lots of tips. 2) Check out the comms icontutorialsand icon_tutorial. Both have extensive tutorials, especially in their memory sections, and are worth their weight in gold.

8) Hotlinking is bad. Don't do it. If you need to display graphics of any kind, get yourself an account at PhotoBucket. They're easy, and best of all, free. And yes, this holds true if you want to nominate something. Some people have to pay for their bandwidth, and we don't want to cost them money, even if it is to show off their lovely work - because, trust me, people get very very angry with hotlinkers, no matter why they were hotlinking. It won't be pretty for you when they - or we - find out.

9) Confused about these rules? As always, just ask the moderators. We'll be happy to clarify anything you need.


On LJ:
Communities:100x100_brushes, icontutorials, icon_tutorial, cap_it

Users (links to brushes, fonts, scans, etc.): dtissagirl, teh_indy, ignited, quebelly, _jems_

This challenge will end in two weeks on the 10/11th March.
As a rule of thumb, if the Hall of Fame hasn't been posted yet, even if the next challenge has, it's fine to post for the previous challenge. If you are about to post and find that the Hall of Fame has just been posted, it's also fine to post still.
Just for those who may think we're not kind and lenient Mod's, or aren't used to challenge communities!
