Why the Hiatus?
1- Declining entries. The InuYasha fandom has really shrunk since I opened this contest, and as such fewer people enter. I have to extend a lot of themes here. With school starting up again, entries are unlikely to pick up.
2- Lack of personal investment. I run a lot of icontests and it's gotten a bit stressful to keep them all up. I do love this contest, but when some of the fun is gone for me I lose motivation. I have decided to put my smaller icontests on hiatus.
3- Losing interest in fandom. KagomexInuYasha is still my OTP to end all OTPs and nothing really comes close to them for me. However, I'm losing some interest in the series as a whole (especially the manga recently) and as such it's hard to bring myself to run so many contests for the series.
We're actually fairly caught up, but these are the banners that need to be completed and posted.
Week 97- medli
Week 99- haro
Can I moderate the community instead of you putting it on hiatus?
No, I'm sorry. I'm not interested in obtaining a comoderator right now. :)
Where can I go now?
-inu_stillness- The general Inuyasha icontest I run, is still up and running. Although often the themes are based around specific characters, we have just about as many concept themes that would allow for KagomexInuYasha, Kagome, or InuYasha icons.
-rumic_icontest- Icontest dedicated to Rumiko Takahashi's entire body of work- InuYasha, Maison Ikkoku, Ranma 1/2, Urusei Yatsura, etc. Even if you're just a fan of one or two series, you are welcome to join and enter. Lots of concept/word themes that will allow any character/pairing.
**Both of those communities are really looking for banner makers, so if those would be willing to switch over and make at one of them, let me know.
Thank you for one hundred great weeks, and hopefully at some point in the future this community will return!
