Ditto - open a new one on the 1st of each month, Labelled "March 09 Photo Co-Operation" or similar.

I'm wondering if there needs to be a closing date, but hey, I can leave that up to the moderators!  ;D

I think this sounds like fun, so open subject, opens first of the month and locks on the last day. I would suggest that people title their contribution(s) to facilitate future searches for specific photos. Shall we start in March?

I agree with you Gepetto in regards to the contributor assigning a title to help with future searches  :help:. March sounds great! Is the deadline date the 15th of the month? & then that monthly thread will be locked down on the last day of the month so a fresh start can be the first day of the following month, or does it need two days to close it down, & prep for the next months entries  ????
  Forget about all of the other stuff,....all we need is the reintroduction of the 3526 Fire Engine!

I really do not care and am just throwing ideas out there  ;) .

Me too  ;) Was no critisims on your idea, just another one or maybe an "extension".

Hm, I think I do not understand: then contribution time will be only two weeks?  ???

I don't really see a need for a cutoff as long as we have time to post the pictures by the end of the month.

I rather like the idea of a general theme in that it gives all photos a connection and is independent of themes or time,  'friendship', 'helping out' ,'travel' are independent of time or theme yet would all offer different perspectives of the same thing. Thoughts?

Actually, since it isn't supposed to be a competition ... you're right Gepetto !

IF we are going to incorporate a theme ( friendship, nature, love, jealousy etc...) should we give a certain amount of times notice ? If the cooperation starts on the 1st of March should we post the theme on the 1st of March or earlier ?

Yes this is not going to have voting so we really do not need a 15th cut off .

I think we should brainstorm some themes, post them so others have as much advance notice as possible (some may rather spend 3 months working towards a particular theme then participate every month) then the only deadline is to get your photos in to appear in the correct month so they are in context. Suggestions?
