It's time to brainstorm for the theme of Contest 36. You have one week to suggest ideas. All seconded ideas will be voted on. (You do not have to second an idea that has already been seconded.) Brainstorming will end on Friday December 15, 2017. Then we will vote.

____________________________________________

Contest Rules
1. Entries must be previously unsubmitted work. Entries must be at least 2/3 maille woven within the time frame of the contest. The remaining 1/3 can be any maille previously woven or any non-maille. Maille consists of any rings, metal or otherwise, or ring substitutes like scales or pop tabs. Non-maille consists of things like beads or wire wraps.

2. You can submit as many entries as you like.

3. Pictures and descriptions of the entry must be submitted to the contest submission thread before the deadline, by hosting the pictures offsite and placing the picture in your post with the Img link. Please don't make us hunt for your entry because it is posted on another site. (In other words, you need to use an image hosting site to place your picture in the entry thread. They are free to use, you just have to register with them to create an account. Some examples of image hosting sites are TinyPic, Photobucket, Flickr, and ImageShack.) Pictures must be a MAXIMUM of 100KB and a MAXIMUM of 800px per side.

4. The submission period for entries generally lasts 12 weeks. After the deadline for contest entries, the contest organizer will create a voting thread with all the entries, to be voted on by the membership. The entire membership may vote, each member having one vote. Polls usually last one week before the winner is declared.

5. The winner of the contest will receive a colored shield by their avatar with a number corresponding to the contest they won. The winner will also be granted automatic inclusion of their suggestion on the list of themes for the next contest.

6. The contest organizer may invalidate any entry. If you have concerns about your or any other entry, please contact the contest organizer with a PM. If the contest organizer deems it necessary, a new thread for public discussion will be opened.

We need to increase interest and get people weaving and posting photos.
I want to suggest no theme/whatever you want. Just make something interesting and show it to us.

PeteMoT: unfortunately no shields have been issued for awhile. Hopefully again soon.

I second no theme/whatever you want, and bits box/chaos/floor sweepings. I don’t think I’d ever make a floor sweeper, but a small chainmail box for my drill bits might be fun. Coif Smiley

Badges are being held hostage by a DL who is slightly overworked, and buried in real life sometimes. Badges are being notated, and will be delivered to the proper recipients when time permits.

Please do not take things out on Lorraine, she has done her diligence in keeping my up to date on who I owe what to as contests close.
