Weds 8/20
Free snake with “Hideous Lantern Jaw”

I like this new “with illustration” trend…

We’re going to have to get back on track with the “game” part of this. Anyone have any more thoughts on that?

I’m a picture person, so when given the option to include a silly picture, I do so. :smile:

How about people post their headlines with the day above, like this:

Wed 8/20
Free snake with “Hideous Lantern Jaw”

You only get to post one “entry” per day. Non-entry post like this:

Wed 8/20: no votes!
Free snake with “Hideous Lantern Jaw”

Vote close 9AM EST as discussed before. Then you, or anyone, has time to post a winner. Those winners can be posted in one thread (called “Huffing BB Winner List”) using date lines, like this:

Tues 8/19:
Wed 8/20: @waetherman
Thurs 8/21:

Does that make it easier?

That would make things a little easier. I still like the idea of polls/voting if we can find a way to embed that. I’m going to do some research… it’s better than working!

Canadian Government Orders Scientists Not to Disclose it is OK to Pee in the Ocean


I agree - I think this way, for now, it’ll keep things to two threads - which I don’t see how to do with polls. They require a head. Also, as long as it’s a running thread with only that content, anyone can post the winner if they check and see it isn’t done yet. That’ll keep it out of strictly your hands.

Crowdfunding a print edition of Cats and watermelons magazine


The only problem I see with doing the voting with “likes” is we inevitably get people who aren’t playing running down the thread and liking entries with no regard for how many likes they’ve given on a specific day’s entries or whether or not voting is closed.

The problem with polling as we tried it was the person who opened the poll was the only one who could close it.

There doesn’t seem to be an ideal way to do voting within the constructs provided by “Discourse”.
