Why was this not promoted more?

here is the full info

If you have Google Chrome you need to install this extension. It's only running til the 19th:

Everyone’s total tabs will determine a charitable donation made on behalf of the Chrome community, up to one million dollars. Here's what your tabs can do:
10 tabs = 1 tree planted
10 tabs = 1 book published and donated
25 tabs = 1 vaccination treatment provided
100 tabs = 1 square foot of shelter built
200 tabs = 1 person's clean water for a year

You basically have nothing to do except click for it to add the extension, then every tab it opens will count toward your total. At the end of each day, you choose the charity you want your tabs to count toward.

It doesn't keep a record of your browsing history. It simply counts tabs opened.

So please, please, please, if you have Google Chrome: install this.
I'll start us off...
I make no apologies that some of this icons are years old. That makes them even more amazing to me that they are so brilliant.
I was up at 4am staring at tiny pixels of joy to make my decision.

my top six BSG iconmakers, in no particular orderCollapse )
09 December 2010 @ 05:04 pm
I've been busy with uni work, sorry for being AWOL.
On that note, to get us back into the spirit of nomming, how about a little bit of praise for your favourite BSG icons/iconmakers?

If you're familiar with iconpraise, then you'll see what I'm getting at.

Post up to eight icons from up to six of your favourite BSG/Caprica iconmakers in a new post behind a cut.
It'd be nice to know why they are your favourites as well, but you don't need to write an essay (unless you want to).
Outside the cut, you may post your five current favourite BSG/Caprica icons. They don't have to necessarily be by your favourite makers.

This will give us all a chance to be introduced to some pretty we weren't aware of.

Upload to your own photobucket/tinypic etc account. No hotlinking.
Use the lj user code to make clickable links to the icon creators. Credit.

Does anyone want some sort of spoiler policy for Caprica? Post concerns etc in this post.
I've only seen the pilot, so I'm aware I'm going to be spoiled.

I'd appreciate some feedback in this post as well, as to how we're going to move forward/what amount of categories you want for each show etc
20 November 2010 @ 02:55 am
All previous winners will be listed over at fleethonours along with their winning icons *if any links are still valid*
I had planned to do this years ago, as you will see from the sign up date of the fleethonours comm. I had all of the icons saved to Photobucket, but they're no longer there.
Rest assured that from here on in I'm going to be more organised and I'm considering having a comm photobucket account for uploading nomms; what do you think?
19 November 2010 @ 03:12 am
A lot of you wont know that I went on a very long hiatus due to having no PC or internet.
I'm back now. And though this comm was fairly inactive near the end, I am planning on resurrecting it. (see what I did there?)

Yes, BSG is over. Yes, Caprica is now cancelled (and I've only seen the pilot).
More importantly than that, however, is the fact it lives on in our hearts and in our photoshops!
Bill Adama could do a better speech.

On that note, if you are interested in comodding this community, please respond to this post.

Feel free to respond also with any thoughts/criticisms/questions you may have about this post and our return.

We're going to be narrowing down the categories, as well as adding Caprica to our accepted noms.
Let's take back the colonies... or something

Right nuggets,
in case you hadn't noticed ((as a lot of you actually didn't)), bsg_awards is open for the next round of nominations.
I'm back of hiatus, and will be 100% committed to this comm, but I need your support.
In the time we've been using for R&R ((instead of nomming)), there has been a mass of stunning BSG icons released.
And not to brag, but it seems all of the members/watchers here are a talented bunch.
So to inspire some nomming, lets have a little recc post.
Feel free to add some reccs of your own to the comments.
Maybe we should make this a regular thing?

..it was stupid removing the 'funny' category!
My icon says so!

Where has the fleet gone?

I've had an idea recently (shock horror) and feel free to tell me if it's ridiculous.
Basically, I was thinking that in order for more member participation/chances to win/more fun, members could opt to join the colonial fleet or the cylon fleet. It would be super secret, and each week I would tally points from each side. Points could be gained through nomming, voting, winning etc. Hence the super secretness, so no cheating.

Also considering a member of the month type thing.

What do you think?
16 February 2007 @ 04:51 pm
Please re-read the rules.
Nominations are open. This nomination period is open until Saturday 24th February 11:59am GMT.

The special category is End of the World OTP: Best icon of Six and Gaius. May not include other characters.

Remember Season 3 spoiler icons must go behind a cut with a spoiler warning. Episodes up to 'Unfinished Business' have free reign.
((Updates will continue throughout the nomination period.))

16 February 2007 @ 03:30 pm
- Categories have been condensed and renamed.
further info under hereCollapse )
- New userinfo
- New layout

((this post will be updated throughout the day. Its purpose is to keep you up to date with the refurbishment))

20 January 2007 @ 02:33 pm
on my complete lack of followthrough *so to speak* you can check out my personal journal. I am so very sorry.

Nominations etc will be open later today. Wait for the post.
01 January 2007 @ 04:39 pm

Happy New Year everyone

I apologise for this, sincerely.
Nomms are not open yet.
Unfortunately I had to work yesterday ((and ended up leaving my dog outside and the back door open while noone was in the house- that's how scatterbrained I have been)) and today. And now I'm going to a concert.
And tomorrow is my birthday so I don't foresee getting online.
The other comm ((for winners info, banners, admin stuff)) is also not ready just yet, so perhaps this is a good thing)).
I will keep you posted. Hopefully this delay wont be too long.
So sorry about this.
Hope you enjoyed watching BSG ((I haven't had time to acquire it, never mind watch it)).
