Not sure if I am signing up for the Winter Challenge or not. The link above does work however, I found a sign up somewhere else and it sent me here. Let me know if this is the wrong place.

TIA

I'm in, and I don't mind being a team leader. I've never done the stats or anything before but you explained it pretty clearly on the other page...and I think I get it. I think last challenge the team leaders got to busy and didn't really do much to keep the members active, and I get it life happens, but I really want to make sure that doesn't happen this time....and I guess by being a team leader I can do my part to keep the challenge interesting and exciting!

Yay!

*It makes me smile knowing that this was a temporary forum we had set up a few years ago and it is still here! Surprised it is still labeled "temporary" though. I was a team leader back then, but life is way too busy for me to take that on again. (4 college courses + 1 online course + 3 kids under 7 + work + I'm a single mom) Oh and it was so frustrating with percentages, luckily KimL1214 was in charge and she was a great help! :)

I'm excited to start a new challenge!

Never tired this before but sounds like a great way to stay motivated. I'm in. Can't be team leader yet (buying house and finishing college).

Good start!
Sign ups end Friday, so we'll be starting soon. :D


If both DivineFidelity and I are team leaders that gives us two groups. Unless we get a flood of joiners, that sounds about right ;) Might want a third team leader and group if this gets much bigger though.

So our group names? I could use a few suggestions
Animals - Arctic foxes, Adélie penguins, snowshoe rabbits?
Movies - Nightmare before Christmas, Home Alone, Elf?
Something else???

DivineFidelity

I would love to have a team name that has something to do with Penguins. They're one of my favorite animals. Perfect Penguins? Pretty Penguins? Idk, those both sound silly. lol

Or we could do something cute like one team be milk and one team be cookies, although that might become a temptation for some people so it's probably not a good idea.

Also, if you're thinking about more animals....Snow Leopards are gorgeous and majestic and I think that would be a good team name.

I'll brainstorm more later. =D

Temptation, for sure. I thought of candy canes for a moment too, before I scratched them off my list ;).

I was trying to go with something winter themed since the snow fall in the US has already started, but then I discovered how hard that was to come up with. Snowflakes? O.o... :dz: Though I think the lack of wintery scenes down here in Florida really effect the imagination. For us, it's icicles lights off our roofs and strings of lights on our palm trees!

All I can think of is that Twelve Days of Christmas song with a little editing:
10 Leopards-a-Leaping
9 Penguins Dancing

But since we're pretty much global here, I guess "Winter" doesn't need to be a must ;).

I love the snow leopards too! I wrote Adélie penguins because I saw this guy - what a character! :D:

I'm in and I think the teams should be named after Santa's reindeer since it ends on X-mas Eve. Dasher? Blitzen? Dancer? Prancer? Donner? Vixen? Comet? Cupid? Even Rudolph. They're all pretty great.

DivineFidelity
11-06-2011, 09:46 PM
Awwww zan that penguin is so adorable! Awesome. I know what you mean about not having much winter inspiration though....I don't get much of that here in Houston.

I love penguins too. I like the idea of winter animals as team names.

I'm in!

But can I make a huge suggestion? Could we not do the weekly threads, just a one off team chat thread? I think it just clutters the whole sub-forum and really isn't necessary to have to make one each week.

DivineFidelity
11-07-2011, 08:12 AM
I kind of agree with Riestrella. I think it would make more sense to just have one continuous thread. Judging by how little people posted last week, we might not even fill it up...and it really does get confusing for some people. I think part of the reason that people weren't responding to other people on the team last time was because they didn't want to have to go back to the old thread to see what they said. If we do meet the maximum number of posts, we can always start a new thread, but I highly doubt that unless we get some really chatty team members (and don't get me wrong, that would be nice. lol)

If I remember right, when we did this in the beginning each team had their own thread for the whole challenge. Never got confusing. :)

The Team Chat threads sound great! I remember people dropping off and the threads get quiet, it makes a lot more sense to have only one thread per team. Heck, we can't even kill threadkiller (a thread in the game section) in a year, so I think we could pull off less than 500 posts in 6 weeks (and a continuation thread won't kill anyone if it goes over ;), much better than 6 separate threads). I still think just two teams will give us a better group of chatters to keep us all active too.


Not too late just yet, Princess of the KING. Cut off is Friday night, after all. :D

Alright, looks like Animals it is.
I think Penguins is a yes, but the other team?
Leopards, Reindeer, Foxes, Rabbits?

I am the queen of indecisiveness. I know how to decide this! Delegate!
Next poster gets to pick one of the above four (they were previously mentioned) or come up with another Winter Animal.
The time to decide... is now!

Puffins! Penguins and Puffins!

Leopards or Foxes!
I'm not good with creating catchy names and phrases, but if I were to, it'd have something to do with leopards or foxes.

MidnightRaven

I love the Penguins and Puffins idea!

[My boyfriend and I "adopted" a Puffin through the Audubon society, so I'm a bit biased!]

Thinking of fast animals motivates me a bit more than shufflers. :) Just sayin'.

Oh no! Now I have that party song in my head! "everyday I'm shuffling!"

I just think of how fast and graceful penguins are in the water, and puffins fly pretty swift and dive in the seawater.

I love that song! Such a great one to work out to. :)

I didn't think of how they are underwater! Every time I think penguin, I think shuffle shuffle. ;)

Maybe we should do leopards and penguins?

The Arctic Foxes. It's like...sexy and sh!t, yo. Like ice cool foxy ladies haha.

I'm embarrassed to say that I stopped responding to the weekly chat threads in the last contest because I got fed up of subscribing to them each week when I had a lot of other active threads to follow. So I'm super happy that the one off chat thread is a hit!

FassGal

I like Arctic Foxes! Also, the name is appropriate for this season. Good job Riestrella

im not a fan of the multiple threads either one is good enough lol the other bl contest does that as well and a lot of folks dont really chat. One thread makes it easier to keep up with the group

DivineFidelity

So jealous!! It is going to be a bad winter for us here in PA and the NE region. We already got snow the other week! :shocksn:

I love the idea of Arctic Foxes and Snow Leopards. I would love to be an Arctic Fox. ;)

Arctic Foxes and Snow Leopards sounds cool. Although I'm going to be a diva and say I have to be an Arctic Fox because I came up with the name, haha!

DivineFidelity I like Arctic Foxes and Snow Leopards!

Iconised Ghost I'm not even jealous. Run, girl, run!

I wanna be an Arctic Fox. I can't wait until this challenge is over! I'm gonna travel to a warm place and bring nothing but every piece of clothing that is "too short", "too tight" and flaunt, flaunt, flaunt my slimmer body! Then I'll return to the NE and dress like a respectable lady. ;) :p
