This is where you suggest ideas for the theme of Contest 23. All themes that are seconded will be put to a vote after one week. The winner of Contest 22's idea is automatically seconded. (That's you Artefacts!) This thread will be open until the end of Monday October 21st . Then the voting thread will open. Ready, set, BRAINSTORM!


_____________________________________________
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. (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.

Thank you, Chainmailbasket - I'm tickled pink! Very exciting and unexpected. And thanks for the link to the contest archives - I was wondering about the themes of the previous comps. Cheers!

As a deep lover of music (and other things...) I'm suggesting three themes:

Love
Music
Commitment

It's been a while since we've had a "thematic" theme, so I suggest:

Theme: The Elements
(this could be the elements of the periodic table; archaic elements such as Earth, Air, Fire, Water; the elements as in weather, etc)

Theme: Seasons

Theme: Religion

Theme: Flight

Theme: Nature

Theme: Love & War

(These were all suggested last time, but hey, why not?)

My theme suggestion is handbag/shoulder bag/man bag/wallet/purse - something both useful and decorative.

I second flight, and music.

Suggestions:

  • irony
  • infrastructure
  • imperial
  • imbalance
  • insects
  • impact
  • igloos
  • inversion
  • eyes

and last, but certainly not least sports. I suggested this once before but it didn't even get seconded! I mean, I know this is a website full of nerds, but surely at least someone else here likes sports besides me. Razz

I don't really get imperial or inversion, but I can go ahead and add votes to both elements and infrastructure.
You know what? Since it's on the same line of thought, igloos.

What society calls any bag a man carries. Whereas if it's for a woman, it's a purse. It doesn't make sense to me, but there it is.


I'll second two-tone.
