I am looking for everyone's input on what they would like to see on the board! Games, polls, ect. Any ideas you see from other boards that might work for us. Or are you content with how our board is going thus far?

I am weird because I never did a traditional nursery for M and this baby will be sharing our and her room anyway... but I really liked doing "Rate This Nursery" threads in my old DDC... since they are just random internet/magazine/show nurseries people can be ruthless if they want basically post one or more pics of a nursery and people rate it 1-10 and say why. I think I love a chance to be snarky without hurting anyone's feelings a few of them I actually loved though!

That's a really good idea thanks! I never really did a traditional nursery either. Although Everett had one he never slept in there it was more because I wanted to do one haha.

We could also play "have you ever?"
You just ask a question like have you ever been on a rollercoaster? The next person answers then asks another have you ever question. It's just a fun way to get to learn about others.

I love picture contests! Like maybe holiday themed "Valentines Belly". A normal bellybump photo with props to make it Valentines-ish. St. Patricks day, etc.. or it can be alphabetical picture titles.. A is for _____ ... example "adorable". B is for _____... example "Bee-utiful". Can make for some sweet keepsake photos for baby bc you're in creative mode. In the playroom I was involved in these were so cute (those had babies in them though). The whole playroom/DDC votes on who's they like the best and the winner gets a "Winner's blinky".

I have found in the boards that I have hosted one being a PR that photo contests die out really quickly. So if we do the bellies which is fine if people want to I would think specific themes would be better. That's just my opinion and what I have seen in the past. I am more than willing to do them if others want.!

Yea, that makes sense. Now that I think of it, the contests did start to loose interest after a while. We were doing the alphabet. I think it would be better less frequently.

I've played it on other forums, it's just a posting game. For example, I would post "The Mom Below Me uses cloth diapers" and the next poster would say whether it was true or false and then post a new "TMBM" statement and so on.

If we start a lot of game threads, and to keep new game threads coming, could we have a "fun & games" type forum? Something like Playing/Swinging in the Garden (it's too early to be creative!! lol ) Just a suggestion!

It could also be used for silly polls and anything OT that people want to post about

What about a group siggy with everyone's u/s photos.

Or a calendar for us to put in our appointments etc.

We can do the group siggy in a few weeks once everyone has had their u/s. And I am looking for an editable calendar. I know we used one with the november group but I cant remember where it was at.

There's a calendar like that on google not sure if it would work here or not.

Question about group-siggy. If we don't get the 20 wk u/s, can we use a bellybump close-up pic instead?
