This thread is for suggesting possible themes for our DDC.

Suggestions will be taken until 11:59 pm Central Time on Sunday, June 16th. At that point, a poll will be posted with the suggested themes. The TOP THREE vote-getters from that poll will be voted on in a separate, final poll to choose the ultimate winner. The deadline for that is TBD. The winner of the final poll will be the top vote-getter, meaning, it does not have to be a certain percentage of the vote. For example if three themes get 20, 19 and 18 votes, the 20 vote theme wins.

This is for the BIG, BROAD theme of our DDC. We can worry about the names of subforums and such after this is decided. . If two suggested themes are extremely similar, they may be combined somehow but that will be part of an open discussion.

I realize I have been very specific about the guidelines for voting... This is based on what happened in my old DDC where there was confusion and, consequently, hurt feelings, etc. I want this to be very clear from the get-go so that everyone is satisfied with the process and outcome!

So, let's start suggesting!

Yay, Marti!

Sounds quite clear and it'll be fun to see what everyone comes up with

November is doing "Candy" theme, so I think if we choose something like Candy, it should be more "seasonal" like candy cane cuties, sugar plums, peppermint something-or-others, etc... There are a couple PR's with a candy name, but I didn't see any with the seasonal theme like this.

Animal of some kind? (Little lambs, penguins and puffins or bears and bunnies... ??)

Dr. Seuss?

That's all I've got at the moment

Oh, I just saw you posted about the Nov Candy theme

I like Dr. Suess.

As for a theme candy...do we have anyone who won't be in the Winter for December? That was also an issue last time.

I don't know if anyone NOW won't be in winter season during December, BUT there's always a chance that someone will become a member when we're a PR or whatnot... That's why I think we may want to steer away from winter-y only themes, but with seasonal candy, it's more holiday season, whether one's celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah or whatever

but I just threw that out because of what others mentioned in our earlier thread about it

That makes sense. Good point.

I just knew last time there were some people who got a little bent over winter themes.

We have a North Pole amusement park where we are and it's always Christmas here! FUN for the little kids! I like Arctic ideas: Arctic Fox, Polar Bears, In the Igloo (?), baby seals, whatever! (I don't even know what animals are arctic )

So many cute ideas!

I love penguins, or even the arctic animals.

What about a north pole theme?
