Here are some extra ways to earn points before the challenge starts!
Pimp this challenge up to three times publicly for an extra point per plug!
Make sure you do this early, because you will only receive the bonus points until the submissions close for the first challenge.
Submit up to the maximum of three icons to the Color Combo of the Month challenge for a bonus of two points per icon! If the slots fill up for July's calendar, August's will go up next, so there are plenty of slots for everyone to take advantage of this.
EDIT: I forgot that June's calendar was also behind, so those who want to put their icons toward filling up those leftover slots are free to do so~
JUNE CALENDAR | JULY CALENDAR
