Important mod post!

This is a post introducing the comm and looking for nominations for new members. If you've gotten this far hopefully you went past the userinfo on your way in but if you haven't here's a little bit about what we, as a comm, are about:

scifi_exclusive is an invite-only community for talented graphics makers, the science fiction graphics they make, and the fans of said graphics. There's no application process but we are looking for nominees! You can nominate others or yourself so long as said person makes some sort of graphic (even if it's just screencaps) for science fiction fandoms.

This community defines science fiction as anything that substantially involves space travel, other planets/galaxies, travel to alternate/parallel/virtual/future realities, high tech and/or artificial intelligence, genetic alterations/enhancement, and of course funky aliens. What you won't find here is borderline sci-fi such as fantasy, BtVS/AtS, Lost, etc.

If you'd like to nominate a graphic maker for membership here at scifi_exclusive we ask that you take a moment to answer a few simple questions:

01. Journal name. If this person has a separate icon journal or icon community then we'll need that name as well so that we can go look at all the pretties.

02. Tell us a little about the person. What sort of graphics do they (or you) make? Any particular fandoms besides science fiction in general? You know, all the basics.

03. Why are you nominating this person for membership?

04. If you had to name one thing you love about your nominee's graphics the most, the one thing you think makes them most standout-ish or unique, what would it be?

The answers to these questions don't have to be complicated. We just want to know what you're thinking and why this person's impressed you so much. And we want nominees! Anyone can nominate.

Other than that, if you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, feel free to add them here and please, please participate. We don't want this to just be another place to drop off icons and the only way it won't be is if the members (and watchers) play along and make it the best community it can be.

Sincerely,
Andrea (Saeva) and Gina (GForGina).

02. I help to maintain an icon making contest which welcomes members of all abilities. This maker is helpful, friendly and encourages others (as an example, please see the comments to the entry here).

03. I am nominating this person here because she regularly makes icons across many fandoms (see her tags list for details) and I think that the quality of her icons justifies the recognition.

04. Text. This user is not afraid of it and experiments. I will go on to say that, whilst her style is recognisable to me as being unique to her, she does make very diverse icons with broad appeal.

Hi, sorry not sure if saeva has seen this post or not. I haven't been checking this page, so have only just got to it.

I have sent a message to Curtana, hopefully will receive a response from her soon.

Cheers,
Gina.
