    Sorry about that!

    Just so you're aware, I noticed that your image isn't Star Wars related. That will automatically disqualify you for the icon in case you do win the overall challenge(all icons need to be SW related in some way). Did you still want to have your piece listed in the vote?

    It was two fanfic OCs. It wasn't a Star Wars-y piece but both characters are from Star Wars fanfics.

    That would explain it. I didn't realize they were from fan fics.

    I will need to check in with Nat and see if she will allow that. I know there is a strict rule in place about SW images only and the only Fan Art she allows is what comes through from this vote. I'm not sure how fan fic fits into the mix. I'll double check and get back to you on that. :)

    Okay, I just got an answer from Nat and it looks like that will be fine if your piece does indeed win the vote.

    I'll go ahead and update the first post. Thanks for being patient! :)

    Congrats to AzureAngel2!

    I just sent her an SMS at work - now if her pupils are annoying she can give them a superior smile, knowing she is A VIP ;)

    Thanks, star. I am still very excited about that. But I need to go to bed soon. Otherwise I will fall asleep in front of my students... [face_blush]

    Actually what does happen next? What comes with the VIP status again? And do I really get my painting as my own icon?

    Congrats again, Azure!

    As a VIP, you are free to change your colors to whatever you want for a week. Simply go under "Admin" in the main header and it will prompt you to create an admin password. Once that is done, you will be free to choose whatever color combination you like. If you need any help, please let me know!

    And yes, your winning piece of art will be turned into an icon that will be used here at the JC! :)

    Thanks for explaining that to me.

    [:D]

    But I fear that I must go to bed now, unless I really want to fall asleep in front of my colleges and the students.
