This is where you suggest ideas for the theme of Contest 24. 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 haKet and Artefacts !) This thread will be open until the end of Monday February 3rd. 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.

Yay! (runs around like a mad thing) (it's probably the heat)

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: Graduation

Theme: Floor Sweepings

Theme: two-tone

Theme: practical maille

(Yes, some of these these look familiar. I still think they're good ideas. Sometimes enough to swipe someone else's suggestion, too.)

The Theme Contest Archives article is available for anyone who wants a recap of all old theme contests.


I'll second: elements.

Suggest: video games.


There is no such thing as weave ownership. If someone produces a weave sample, they own that physical piece of mail, but not rights to the weave pattern itself.

Does this mean I'll have one-and-a-half award shields now? Wow!!! (Though I haven't yet got Contest 22's shield.........).
Anyways, I'll have a think about a theme for this one.

Wouldn't that come under "Graduation"? One can have colour graduation as well as size graduation.
