[https://pnut.io/tags/ThemeMonday #ThemeMonday] has a simple premise; a group of like-minded people change their avatars on or around the second Monday of every month, to a theme chosen by them after shortlisting and then a vote.
[[@blumenkraft]] set up a [https://patter.chat/room/779 #ThemeMonday

= == Catalog of Avatars ===
[[@hutattedonmyarm]] created a small tool to see users' avatars for a given Theme Monday: https://wedro.online/roastmonday/roastmonday.php
To be included in the list, post with the #ThemeMonday tag, the actual tag of that Monday (e.g., #YourMugMonday), and the word "avatar".
"This is my #themeMonday avatar for #YourMugMonday."
<hr> == History : ==
* Originally proposed by [[@alicia]] and ably implemented and run by [[@berklee]], [http://bazbt3.github.io/thememonday/ #ThemeMonday] ''(an ADN Wiki page)'' was indisputably App.net's most popular regular event. [[@bazbt3]] took over from @berklee and ran it for a while. App.net closed down on March 16 2017 so most links below will cease to work, but the memories of all participants will undoubtedly remain with them forever.
* In the event of a tiebreaker being necessary, @bazbt3 previously sent a PM to [[@mlv]]'s Eliza_Bot, asking her to <code>roll 1dn</code> (where <code>n</code> was the number of tying choices.)

To be determined due to location-based constraints: whether a physical, electronic or totally imaginary die will be utilised. # Effective theme recycling strategies are one key to success; participants tend to guide suggestions away from those already chosen for #ThemeMondays. However, dependence on e.g. world events, the seasons, nostalgia, etc.; all of these preclude the setting of formal rules.
