    The moderator (or staff member) that approves it is the applied moderator. And since it's not approved..

    I think that phrase is not needed. Who needs psychological powers I mean knowledge on creating icons? We're no psychologists we're artists.

    Word of advice Adit. It's obvious that you're quite eager to host a proper contest, BUT, that should not inquire you to rush with things such as these.
    Always ask a moderator first if he's willing to back up the contest you started before adding him as the assigned one.

    The theme, however, should stay since it could bring out some sweet concepts around for icons :)

    If applied mod is the overseer, I'll be the overseer.
     
  20. Dude, I don't get you, You're the overseer? A moderator is literally an overseer.
