Welcome to tos_chorus, a lyrical icontest community for Namco's video game, Tales of Symphonia.
For those who aren't aware, this is how an average lyrical icontest community works. Every week, lyrics for a selected song will be posted. Then the participants will create icon[s] based on the provided lyrics and submit them. At the end of the week, all the submitted icons will be compiled in one entry and you will be allowed to vote for the icons you think are the best. Everyone is allowed to take part in the contests as long as you follow the rules.
Each week, along with the lyrics, I will also post an image [or multiple images] and a download of the song. It's not required that you use one of the images to make your icon...I've just put them there if you need them. And please, do not download the song more than once...if you wish to download the song permanently, I would suggest using LimeWire or something of that sort [or better yet, go and buy the CD]...this way everyone can have a chance to hear the song.
01. You are only allowed to enter two icons per challenge. 02. Be sure to use three or more words of the lyrics on your icon[s]. 03. Do not post and/or use your icons before voting is completed. 04. Do not cheat by asking your friends to vote/using multiple accounts to vote. I don't care who it benefits... just don't do it! 05. Voting for your own icon is okay, as long as you really believe it's the best icon. 06. If you are using fan art, I encourage that you ask for permission from the artist. If for some reason this is not possible, then please give proper credit to the artist. 07. Just have fun!
01. You can only vote once. 02. You vote for your top three favorites. 03. There will be a total of four winners each week. First place, second place, third place, and mod's choice. 04. In the event of a tie, I'll most likely do it myself, choosing the best one through use of lyrics, creativity, and artistic quality.
Votes will be screened.
