I think a good theme is:

The Four Seasons.

Ample theme that gives us 4 sub-themes:

winter, autumn, summer and spring.

people can make mail about the four together or just about one of the seasons... lots of ideas coming! Surprised

nice or not? Coif Cool Smiley


(I made an english error, now i fixed it.)


Get it Hot, hit it hard, thats how it has to be.
Be always ready, cause winter is coming, and with it, some things that were forgotten can come to live again!

Why didn't this thread show up under announcements section on the home page? Confused I thought it would show up there and nearly missed out on finding it.

I think you'll find that the announcements on the homepage have only been used historically for the Votes/Submissions notifications, and not for the Theme Discussion threads... If you ask lorraine nicely, maybe she can change this in the future Very Happy

That being said, I'm nowhere near ready with script for a new contest, so this thread can stay open a good while longer yet...
Hopefully we lead to some great ideas come contest time!

Yeah, I did actually think about doing this. But I decided that having the announcement of the winner of the contest be at the top of the front page was more important than immediately bumping it down with an announcement of brainstorming for the next contest. It just seemed a little disrespectful to the theme contest winner to do that. The contests run continuously and in the same place, at the top of Gallery Discussion. I assumed (yes, I know... never assume) that people would automatically go looking there for the next phase of the contest. Anyway, that's why I kept doing it when I took over running the contests.

Well, it's partly my fault that I almost missed the thread, because when i get on the website it's always in a computer lab (as I don't have the internet at home,) so I'm not automatically logged in. So for the past few visits I was being lazy and not taking the time to log in and check the newest forums and was instead just quickly opening the website, checking the announcements and then going about my other internet related needs. So, yeah all's well that ends well. Smile

I'd like to second maille bombing (maille in unusual places.) It seems like it could make for a really awesome/interesting set of entries. I'd also like to suggest the themes of The Sciences (any and all of them), Pop Culture, and Toys made of Maille.

i have been waiting very patiently for "stretchy maille" to come to an end.
this wasn't because i innately dislike stretchy maille.

i guess i'm just saying, if "nowhere near" is a month out, would it be worth it to move forward and get the contest system in place for the next round?

also, is this a personal grudge against fence-sitters? Razz


PSA: remember to stretch.
