    @keni can I not express interest and participate :p
    and... I was thinking that if one needs a streak of 10 to participate, maybe it should be a bit more loosely written posts, like 20...

      @lucjah - I thought of the 20 posts... But some of the information is already out there so we will make it better for round 2.

      I think you will make an awesome contribution if you participated. You have a unique perspective and I NEED more women in the contest. I would love if you could join. Just this once for the ice breaker.

      @twizzle - Basile is going to create a form or something like that for submitting the post for the competition. I am keeping track of who decided to take part so we will have everything organized.

      @danielmiller - The majority voted for an ice-breaker post. That would be a nice way to start our very first community event.

    @keni

    5) The Professor: Write about a teacher that has influenced you.
    6) Missing: Write about someone you miss dearly.

      @brianball - I like the idea of #1 too.... It would be nice to use this contest as an opportunity to get to know each other more.

      @keni @brianball

      I vote for this strategy as well... follow the order unless something better comes up later? And yes I feel like icebreaker would be great way for this to start. Not only contest... but also a ice breaker :)

      @keni @basilesamel - it might be cool if we all submit to the event whenever we want up until the event -- in a pre-published / not visible state. Then, at the event time, they all become publicly visible -- and however we're going to vote happens at that time.

      @basilesamel @brianball - Yes that could be done using a private post ahead of Nov 15th. I will likely write up ahead of time myself.

      @keni @basilesamel What also could work would be a scheduled post. At least that's probably how I'm going to handle it :)

      @phaidenbauer - Baz is working hard to create a form so we can submit our posts. I am considering having the contest for more than 24 hours so everyone gets a chance to submit their post. I will send updates as Baz wraps up the back-end work.
