[Backslapcember] Planning Committee

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed

December is Backslapcember this year. We will be trying to remind people to keep it positive and love their ilxor brothers and sisters.

We have 30 slots to fill, since obviously we don't want to cut into anyone's Christmastime.

The first day I propose is Participate in a Subboard Day. Maybe you're a Site New Answers Person, or you go to ile and ilm and a couple of subboards but not much else, and so this day is one for you to broaden your horizons a little.

I'd also like to propose Ilxor Literacy Day, and have people boost the ilb traffic a little and maybe visit their local libraries.

Any suggestions? Sarah?

we should have an eight day long festival of lights in or around christmas rededicating our commitment to ilx

web comics day! Everyone likes comics, and also likes to argue about whether or not they're funny.

Okay, 8 festival of lights, and Make a Web Comic Day.

I think there should be prizes, too. For, like, every day.

bamcquern, Friday, 27 November 2009 18:54 (nine years ago) Permalink

prizes are great. people like prizes. people also like tiny things. the prizes should be tiny.

sarahel, Friday, 27 November 2009 19:02 (nine years ago) Permalink

one day should be dedicated to showing the prizes and announcing the winners. i don't want to be derivative of other boards' celebratory months and have parades, because their parades would undoubtedly be better than ours, so backslapcember should culminate in an awards ceremony

sarahel, Friday, 27 November 2009 19:07 (nine years ago) Permalink

festival lights should be from the 11th to the 19th

But isn't <3 a 1p3 thing? They have the <3/aw thread. I object to this one, really.

Remember to keep it positive! These are extra emotional days, during the holidays, and we want this to be a source of good cheer.

start a poorly-received conceptual thread on a subboard day

corollary: bump a thread only u posted 2 day

bamcquern u read poetry and books that are unpopular and think about art and space and the underlying meaning and connectedness of things and quote german aphorisms probably u no keepin it positive is impossible

I think that humanism is the end result of existentialism. Life inherently lacks meaning, so one can't help but find meaning in other people. To put it platitudinously.

Also, seriously, this quilt shop is a wonderful place.

I think I am ill. I think, I mean, that my condition has flared up again, or something worse. But I'm glad I'm in Fort Myers and can see my friends.

can we have a biscuit appreciation day? or cookie appreciation day to americanise

Well, it can be both, and a day to put aside minor cultural differences and bring the Americans and Britishers closer together in understanding.

maybe change <3 day to emoticon appreciation day? they're such a convenient way of expressing things - it's quite beautiful in a way - like haiku

maybe we should have dead language day, where we could post aphrorisms in dead languages.

Biscuit/Cookie appresh could be about cross cultural exchange, like 'muricans appreciating not overly sweet, strangely substantial treats and britishers appreciating intensely sweet, diabetes-creation-machine treats.

there should also be appreciation days for various ilx-ers:
