Hello all -

I know there have been a lot of changes around LJ lately, with the new terms and SSL changes. As a result, many folks have opted to switch to After discussing with some more tech-savvy friends and checking things out, I too have decided to move to DW. It has taken quite some time to get my personal journals and communities moved - and I'm still working on some of them. I have moved my mod account with the same name, djmustangsally and have moved the entire community of of Trekicontest over to DW.

Challenge 308 will be the last one on LJ. Once voting is completed as of Friday, May 12, I will be closing this community and focusing on the community via Dreamwidth. It won't be immediate, but I will shortly be completely shutting this community down. Everything is preserved in DW, and I will continue to work on my banner backlog over there. If you choose not to make the move, but would like to receive your banners, please private message me with your email address.

I would encourage everyone to continue their iconing and stay with the community (you will have to rejoin, but please do!) in Dreamwidth. It is a more secure and accepting community that will protect your privacy and is very open about its programming and policies.

I look forward to continuing our icon challenges in DW, and I'll look for you all over at Trekicontest on DW by this weekend!

Thanks for your understanding. Thanks for keeping this community going and I hope to create more Trek icons with you all again soon!

Mod Update

Hello everyone! Happy 2017!

My deepest apologies for not updating for these past couple of months. I am very sorry I did not keep up with the community and update everyone as we started the new year.

Unfortunately, I have had some serious health issues since the holidays. After numerous tests and seeing new doctors, I am finally starting to get back to normal…or getting used to what the new normal will be. I am also starting a new training program for work, so I'll be settling into a better routine very soon. Unfortunately, with all these changes - some good, some not so great - I was unable to keep up with the community these past couple of months. That WILL be changing soon!

I will be getting caught up on the last open challenges. I will also get 2017 started with an open challenge, so get those creative juices flowing! Stay tuned, and before the end of the month we'll be getting back to a regular challenge schedule. Thank you so much for your continued interest and involvement with our fun and fabulous community! Thank you especially for your patience and understanding with me!

All the best,
Sally :)

Hello everyone!

My deepest apologies for such an unexpectedly long hiatus. I ended up having surgery immediately before the holidays, which put me out of commission for quite some time. I have been focused on my recovery, which is very slow-going and continuing even now. Only this past month have I returned to a somewhat regular work schedule, which has been a little overwhelming on top of everything. I do apologize for not updating the community, and hope that everyone is still just as excited as I am to make Star Trek icons for LJ!!!

I would like to reopen our iconing with an open challenge. We'll be doing a lot of fun theme challenges this year, as it is officially the 50th anniversary year of Star Trek! If you have ideas or suggestions, I'd love to hear them as well!

I've also refreshed our profile page with our Number Ones from our 4th Special Challenge last year. Thanks to [ profile] linstock and [ profile] mareel for our lovely banners and icons! We'll have a 50th Anniversary Special Challenge coming up soon as well, so stay tuned!

Thanks for your patience and enthusiasm everyone! Keep your eye on [ profile] trekicontest for the next challenge and lots of winners and banners!

I'd love to have other peoples' input for challenge ideas, so it's not just my thoughts every week.  If you have any ideas, please comment to this post.  All comments will be screened, but I'll keep them and pull from them over time.  Thank you in advance!

Also, is anyone interested in being a banner maker?  Please email the mod if you are.


A Restart

 This community has been on a long-term hiatus, but it didn't quite die.  I'd love to bring it back now.  Expect more posts, updates, and please help promote the community!
