oday, my friend m0nkeygrl presented me with this great userpic. Also today, as usual, I badly typoed a comment, one which drastically changed the meaning of the comment and required me to make another comment to correct it. I do this, a lot, because 1) my typing skills are atrocious and 2) my proof-reading diligence is a little more than suspect. I've been thinking for some time, now, that I need a clever userpic(s) for these situations when I butcher a comment, yet I haven't been able to think of something, because I'm not consistently the cleverest of fellows.

So I thought, why not ask my very clever and creative friends? Even better, why not make it a contest?

But to have a contest, you need a prize. So here's the skinny: you have through April 16 (Easter Sunday) to submit an LJ-icon (100x100px, <40k) dealing with my lame typing/editing/proofreading habits. To encourage a multitude of avatars to choose from, there will be three prizes: one for first place and one for runner-up as selected by me, and one based on a popular, blind vote of my f-list. The three winning icons will receive one month of paid LiveJournal and all three will be included in my userpics with proper credit. There is no limit to the number of icons you can submit. In the event that the popular vote coincides with the first-place or runner-up icons, I will choose the next highest vote. As for the content of the userpic, it's fair game. The funnier and more clever I think it is, the better. Feel free to share this contest with friends on your f-list. At the end of the contest, I will make a post with the three winning icons plus all the avatars from the contest and who submitted them.

You can either e-mail them to me, or post them in a comment to this entry. Comments have been screened on this entry to keep the contest blind.

I am not apt at icon making, so I linked a friend here who is. She was wondering if I gave her an idea/concept and she created it if that would be eligible for the contest. =)

hat's perfectly fine with me. If the icon wins, I guess you two can decide who gets the paid time. :)

I like that you had to say consistently so we wouldn't all jump to be the first one to say, "Awww, Soop, you're plenty clever for me."

know I have my moments... I'm just not consistently clever. OR maybe I'm just celver with respect to certain things and not others. At any rate, I haven't felt very clever about this topic. I've tried searching for funny photos, I've tried brainstorming one I could stage of my own, or animate. Drew a total blank. Hence zees leetle contest.

You gonna make me an icon? I hear you have lots of time on your hands now.

*zing*

shining example which illustrates EXACTLY why I need an icon for typos.

ee why I need an icon about this?!?!?
