ThemeMonday

From Community Pnut.io Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

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 #ThemeMonday chat room for organizing - go take a look inside! The @ThemeMonday account also announces the event and helps coordinate.

Don't forget to tell your friends!

Approximate Process

(Starting a week prior.)

  1. Weekend: Ask for suggestions,
  2. Thursday evening: Create poll,
  3. Saturday evening/Sunday morning: Announce result!

Byelaws

  • In the event of a tiebreaker being necessary @bazbt3 will roll a die. 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.

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."

History

  • Originally proposed by @alicia and ably implemented and run by @berklee, #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 roll 1dn (where n was the number of tying choices.)
