We are looking at a simpler way of counting this year, so head under the cut to see the set-up!
Please start an original comment thread below using the following text box:
We ask that in this post, you do not comment on anyone else’s comment. LJ will only let us update comments if they have no response. If you are not a current LJ user or cannot update your own information, then leave the updated information as a comment to your own comment, or contact one of the maintainers.
Count what you will. In previous years we used the theory that if you had made it available for someone else to see, such as posting into a comm (this or another one), submitting a graphic assignment or sending a picture to a friend, then it was countable, but be guided by what feels like the right thing for YOU. We will not judge you or mark you down for something that may not fit this criteria.
Please count each graphic as '1', no matter if it's a banner, wallpaper, icon or something else. While this may not seem equal, it's the easiest way to do this. It's also not necessary to add the '1000' for each graphic here; we will do this in the spreadsheet that collects up all the numbers!
Feel free to link your graphics here, if that is what you've done in the past, but this is not essential. If you do want to do this, please do it ABOVE the list of months, so that they stay together at the bottom of your comment. Thank you!
Update your numbers when it's convenient, whether this is the end of the month or partway through. For example, If you put '100' on Jan 14th and then go back on the 31st and update this to the month's complete total '300' (Being the 100 from the 14th, plus another 200 since), that's perfectly okay.
We will be adding the last number we see after the last day of each month into a more accurate schedule than in previous years, which will hopefully mean we will catch any updates on each person's count without confusion.
Good luck, everyone!
