Didn't we just do "weapons" a couple contests back? Some REALLY good submissions and a good turnout, as I recall...

I will not be including BDSM or Fetish in the theme ideas. BDSM is sexual and/or explicit in nature. While I personally have no problem with the subject, I do not believe it is suitable for a MAIL Theme Contest. I realize the word fetish does not have to refer to a sexual fetish. However, I still don't think it is a suitable theme.

If there is a problem with my decision, please PM me about it instead of turning this thread into a public argument. Thank you.

I do like the idea of floor sweepings. All those left over bits and bobs worked into a chaotic yet beautiful thingy! Order is all well and good but a bit of anarchy every once in a while can teach us to think outside the pattern. I second floor sweepings.

MAIL Content Policy wrote:

Unacceptable Content - Unacceptable content is defined as any image or language that:
1. constitutes clear and present danger of serious substantive evil.
2. contains racial or ethnic remarks, or ad hominem (Latin for "against the person") attacks or descriptions devoid of meaningful content.
3. contains language or material that, in context, depicts or describes, in terms patently offensive as measured by contemporary community standards for the M.A.I.L. community, sexual or excretory organs or activities.


BDSM / Fetish Wear clearly falls under section 3.
This goes back to old old (before my, or Lorraine's time) discussions regarding the purpose of MAIL, it's need to be a "teaching" resource.
And the desire to keep it OFF web filter black lists, to enable students in schools to use it as a resource.

Having a Web Forum, it enough to keep it on some HIGH ALERT filter lists... But keeping sexual content off the site, should enable it to continue to be accessed and available for its intended purpose.

While neither I, nor Lorraine, nor indeed (I'd put money on this) the majority of the membership would find the material "offensive"... Again, these rules exist with purpose.

Any further discussions regarding this, should be aimed at the League Business forum, regarding content policy. Please and thank you.

While I disagree with your interpretation, I Will step down and refrain from suggesting such themes in the future.

Based on the end of the contest being just a couple weeks before, I am thinking to throw in "Valentines" as my suggestion.

I also like:

Hearts
Playing card suits
Sports(?)
