Title: [APR 2018] - ??? - Discussion Thread
Post by: xiagan on April 01, 2018, 10:57:43 AM
Hi all, this is just to inform you that I won't manage to post a new theme on time. :(

With two more really busy weeks ahead, Bea and I agreed to shift the schedule from the beginning of a month to the 15th. From now on, contests will start and end mid month.
This has some advantages:
- people aren't that busy mid month
- we always have the 15th and not different ending times (the 28th, 30th or 31st)
- we expect more attention mid month because there's nothing else happening at that time

And only one disadvantage:
- you have to wait two weeks now (but only once, while the other points are valid every month)

Sorry @Nora and @JMack  :(
I really thought xia was prepared to post the new theme today, but then we were chatting this morning and agreed this is a better idea, him being so busy and all :-\

Some of the arguments make no sense. Mid month doesn't change the length of the month. People's lives aren't regulated by end of months. So aprils fool yo.
Either way I don't care.

You were right, of course. ;) It's hard to shock or fool with something that has a years long tradition...

I expected bunnies and lambs as the joke after what Bea said in response to Nora yesterday in the Letters discussion thread.

True, even if the bunny was dressed as a sheep and the lamb a rabbit.

Aww, I'm disappointed at not having the contest start on the Ides of each month. How about Nones? Kalends? Pridie?

You should have given this a couple of days to marinate :)  Maybe even mentioned a new submission fee!
