pretty_stickers is back up and running after an unexpected leave of absence.

Few things have changed:
1. The point system will probably not be put into practice. There are some issues with it, and mostly it's me keeping up with the whole tallying business. Thank you for putting up with this, and allowing it to be an unofficial trial. Perhaps when the community is alive again and people say they want it back, it'll start again.

2. I'm juggling with the idea that participants of the current round can - if they want to - submit a challenge idea for the next round, so that I don't have to pick it out of thin air or search through our very old Suggestion Box for ideas - and instead of me picking them all the time. I'm hoping that this will increase the interaction within the community and make members feel more apart of it.

3. Fandoms will possibly change. Any new suggestions for additions or subtractions are always welcome.

Before I start Round Seven, I wanted to know if anyone still out there is still interested in this challenge community?

Hey, I only found this community recently but I am definitely interested in a new round. :)

Yup! I'm still interested. My only issue is that I'm going to uni in three weeks time so I may not be as active as other members, but I'm definitely up for a new round!

I am definitely up for some more! :] I am also going to be getting more involved in uni and work (blockbuster! movie lovers unite!), but I will definitely try my hardest to remember to check up here.

• I think that the point system is a lot to do, so if it's easier to not do, that's totally understandable! If people really want it, we could always designate someone to keep track of as much of it as possible and somehow send you the information.

• I think that's a great idea. :] Are the kind of ideas you are looking for things like lists of items/concepts that writers can pick from to base their story off of, or more like one unified concept/idea/item everyone writes about?

• in terms of fandom, I don't exactly remember what the list we have is (I can always go through the past lists and compile one complete one if you want - i've been ultra-organization-crazy lately). But I found THIS, if people can't think of ideas or someone sees a show on there, remembers they love it, and can suggest it.

• again, I'm super in the mood for organization lately, so if there's something you need to be re-written/coded/organized, say the word!

m; followed.

I'm thinking more along the lines of something everyone writes about, hence the Best Use of Prompt award will be easier to identify. Plus, I think it's more challenging and less scattered because everyone is generally writing about the same thing, only having different interpretations.

But in the past, the more choice people get has worked as well. So the ideas that I guess I am wanting is that it's unified, but with some choice - so you may list some office supplies. They revolve around a theme.

Every round has a list, and some fandoms are added and subtracted from it. All I was saying was that if people want any particular fandoms added (or subtracted) from the list, to state so here so Round Seven can be prepared to their liking.

Thank you. :) ♥

Oh! Okay! :) I'm sorry for the delayed understanding, but I wasn't sure :) Perhaps have a list of various types of animals and have writers base their stories off of that animal being loved/hated by the character or having that particular animal trigger a memory. The same thing could go for smells (lavender, cinnamon,specific flowers).

In terms of fandoms, some suggestions (any of which): In Plain Sight, Burn Notice, Bones.</i>

You're welcome! ♥ Thank you :]
