Welcome to shineelims, the SHINee Last Icon Maker Standing challenge community that focuses on SM Entertainment's contemporary band, SHINee.

LIMS it is an icon making contest where participants commit for one round at a time and a few participants are voted off each week until there is only one left. The original idea of LIMS was thought up by disney_hush, and the inspiration for this comm came from asianlims and dbsk_lims. (taken from dbsk_lims)
