    An idea for Members challenge 2017

    I was thinking about the Weekly Challenge, and an idea popped into my head that might work for next year, thought I'd get it down here before I forget.

    My idea is to use famous quotes as inspiration for each week (as there is 4 months left this year that leaves plenty of time for everyone to suggest quotes they think might make worthy themes, so we might have a suitable collection of 52 by the end of the year)


    Quotes could be from history, plays, movies, musicals

    Examples I thought of:

    "I came, I saw, I conquered"
    "Go ahead, make my day"
    "You gotta ask yourself, are you feeling lucky?"
    "Out damn spot, Out I say"
    "I have a dream"
    "Houston, we have a problem"
    "Do or do not! There is no try!"
    "Let them eat cake"
    "Life is like a box of chocolate"
    "Who you going to call?"
    "When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth"


    Just a thought I'm putting out there for discussion...


    Regards,

    We generally start the thread asking for ideas in late October/ early November. So keep an eye out for it and contribute to it at that time.

    John, I reckon the weekly challenge has to be a lot simpler and open to less interpretation to get more people involved. It may be sad but true.

    So we should rename it to a weekly task, instead of weekly challenge?

    Was working on an idea for peppa pig today that involved focus stacking and macro photograpy of a pepper corn, and a plush pig and some photo overlaying...

    I see what you mean though... so how to set this up so that it is different from previous times (does it need to be different) but is still a challenge that lots of people can get right into...

    But anyway, that will be a question for the post later in the year when AP starts looking for ideas for next year

    You will all get your chance to form how the 2017 weekly chore is themed.

    Agree with you Mark, simpler used to work with these Challenges and us Members enjoyed it, and it was still a Challenge.

    John better to have Members joining in to a Weekly Task then, than not have them joining in at all.
