First idea: would be "The Gender Prection" thread for the DDC! What I had in mind is keeping the main post updated with a chart of members, gender prediction from Mommy, Daddy, Chinese Calendar, baking soda test, ring test, intellegender (if many think they will actually do it?) and U/S! We can keep it updated and see which prediction are right!!!

If you have any suggestions to change or add any prediction tests (I figured easy ones u can do at home) feel free!!! Rachael (Jacob&RylansMomma) will start a thread so you can add your info and she'll put this together and have it stickied!!!!

Thanks to the ones that reminded me that some ppl can find out gender pretty early! hehehe which is soon!!!!!!! Hehehe

Second idea: a great suggested made when coming up with names for sub forums!!!! Queen Bee of the Week (or Mommy of the week) what I'd like to know each day we can ask this chosen mommy to put up something example: 1 day pics of a certain something, another day to state a bit of something about themselves... Etc... So I'd be a Monday to Friday thing!
What suggestions would u have for these 5 days!!???? I'll choose the 5 most popular choices! Then I'll start a sign up thread for u ladies and then have it stocked to we can get started on getting to know some Queen Bees!!

Love the ideas!!!

& Stephanie!! You CANNOT be serious!!! hahaha

You will have to describe the method to do each gender predictor or put the website for the Chinese because we need to compare "apples to apples" and see how accurate each method is. What do you think?

As for questions, whatever it is, please keep it simple. Something that can be answered from the phone or easy pictures.
We did "a day in the life" once in my PR and it was a nightmare for me to upload all those pics It made me regret doing it.

I LOVE both of those ideas I agree, you will have to put instructions/sites for the different tests you put up, so we are all following the same thing - the Chinese gender charts all vary, because some use lunar year and some use actual year, so it throws results off

I like Photo Friday for the Queen Bee sticky - not sure what the photos could be though Maybe it could be tailored week by week - if it is a holiday week, post pics of something from the holiday either this year or the previous, etc...or seasonal, since there are so many that celebrate different holidays! I think one that is necessary is a belly pic for that week

I will post a link for the Chinese Chart and instructions to all test when I make the thread! Let me get some kind of chart together and I'll get that started!

I love the ideas! I'll definitley participate in the gender predictions when links and such are posted. Also, I like the Queen Bee/MOTW idea. I was in the same PR with Paola and it honestly was intimidating doing such detailed ones.

yeah i totally agree! and Rachael got the msg so i think we'll have it set up well to compare and we all use the same things

as for the Queen Bee of The Week... i understand some of u are here mostly on ur phone and uploading lots of pics is a PIA on the phone or not! hehehe (obviously worse from phone! hehe)

hmm maybe spread the week of actually 3 days instead of 5? so it give the person a chance and also gives a chance for people to ask questions too? for example..

we can start it on a Monday where the Queen Bee of The Week can simply state a more detailed intro of them, what they do, family life (about hubby/SO and kids if they have), things they like to do..
Tuesday: the DDC ladies can post questions they would like to learn about this mommy...and it'd be nice to have quite a few so the mommy chosen can choose which one she rather answer.
Wednesday: this mommy can choose any 10 questions to answer!!!! unless you really wanna answer them all! hehehe
Thursday: the DDC can request picture posts of anything! the more the better! but...
Friday: the Queen Bee of The Week will post up to 5 pictures! unless u really wanna post more but are not obliged in any way!


how does that sound??? on every sunday unless i know i will not make it on i'll put it saturday post WHO is the Queen Bee of The Week!!

if this sounds interesting or u think different things to do please suggest!!! i don't want it to be too complicated and make it easy for everyone to participate since i think its a great way of getting to know one another better! then i'll post a sign-up thread shortly!
