It's time to brainstorm for the theme of Contest 31. 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 Monday February 15, 2016.
____________________________________________

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 may or may not 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.

Congratulations Slagr on winning the last contest. Every time I glanced at the vote over the last few days the top two seemed to have switched positions, I didn't expect the vote to be slow close fought.

I would like to propose two ideas at this time:
Handflowers
Bits Box/Chaos (please pick this one, I have a couple of boxes in dire need of an excuse to empty them Very Happy )


So much to build, so little time.

Currently attempting a Build of the week for 2016. Results can be found here: http://www.facebook.com/raphaelschainmaille/albums/883352845105427

Pretty much. I'm sure everyone has different names for it.

I second Reinforced/Rhino/Wyrm. I was going to suggest it.

So I'll suggest:

Symmetry/Balanced.


Tell a mailler what ring sizes to use and they'll weave for a day. Teach them AR and they'll weave forever.

Seconded.
I think it would be an instant win if someone used 2^(74,207,281)-1 rings (current largest known prime number).

project.addRing();

I'd like to add Storytelling to the list of ideas being considered for the next theme.

Seconding Storytelling.
