Welcome to DFlackIcontests! This community is for fans the wonderfully snarky Detective Don Flack (Eddie Cahill) on the show CSI:NY. We all love Eddie's talent, and to display our love, we'll be doing icon challenges. Challenges should run every other week. Anyone is welcome to join, as long as you love the show and/or love Don Flack. You may enter the current challenge at any time.
1. When entering a challenge, please post your entries as a comment on the challenge post (which will be screened) and submit just the image like below:
2. Enter up to 6 (six) icons.
3. The icons must conform to LJ's standards. (100x100 px, no larger than 40kb, and either .gif, .png, or .jpg file formats) 4. No animation unless otherwise stated.
5. Blending is allowed, but only half of your entries can be blended. Meaning if you submit 4 icons, 2 can be blended. Blending= combining more than one cap in an icon (the same cap repeated is fine).
6. Textures, brushes, and text are allowed.
7. Icons must be new and do not post your icons anywhere else until voting for the challenge has finished in order to keep anonymity.
8. You must be a member of the comm to submit icons.
9. VOTE! But don't vote for yourself, and don't ask others to vote for you. It's not fair. You don't have to be a member to vote, however no anonymous votes will be accepted.
10. There have to be at least THREE (3) submissions before there will be a voting. TWO (2) of those should be from someone else than a moderator. If those numbers are not reached, there will either be an extension of the challenge or we will skip to the next challenge and a mod will pick one icon from each submission for a participation banner.
If you would like to become an affiliate, please comment here. *please note if you delete your comm i am deleting it from the affiliates so if you start it up again you'll have to tell me. :)
WEDNESDAY: at 10PM EST, Voting Ends of previous challenge. Winners of previous challenge will be announced. Banners (should) be done either at the same time winner are posted or by Monday evening at the latest.
SUNDAY: at 10PM EST voting starts, meaning submissions will be accepted until then. Challenges and caps for new challenge will be posted.
If you need to know what the time difference is for you go here.
While I attempt to get things done on time, sometimes (okay a lot of times but I'm working on it!) life takes over. Because I know how that can be, if either voting or results aren't up by the schedule, you may still submit/vote. Only once voting/winners are up are those completely closed. That being said, please try and get things done before the deadlines. Sometimes I wait to see if last minute entries come in and end up waiting too long.

Remember to watch CSI:NY Friday nights, 10pm EST/9pm CST on CBS. All characters are owned by TPTB- not me. Clearly.
We do not own CSI or it's characters, that is all the god Anthony Zuiker and TPTB: we are simply fans. There is no harm intended. Please do not sue. My dad would kill me.
