Regarding the November theme

First; I noticed that the November contest had been skipped or cancelled a few times. I'm not sure why. Election(s)? Holidays?

Anyway. If we can still do it I've been trying to come up with a theme that would be very inclusive. Like:

1. Almost Anything (no theme)
2. Books
3. Signs
4. Metal
5. Glass

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. I'd like to have something in the works 'cause I will be off the grid from about 11/4 through 11/12. If I start a submission thread in the next few days it would give everyone until about 11/12. Unless it is best to skip this November. I don't know.

1. No idea why it's been skipped! Maybe someone who's been here longer can chime in and explain.

I think whatever theme you like would be great, and giving us till the 12th would be plenty of time.

I don't think skipping would be a good idea--but that's just me!

2. To my knowledge any skipping happened

when we changed over from the last version of DU - and had no polling ability for about a year. That could have included two Novembers. I thankfully forget.
I like your suggestions just fine, they are all comprehensive without a doubt, and would bring many interpretations.

Congratulations on winning with your very beautiful photograph.

3. Almost anything! Please! Pretty please with a cherry on top of whipped cream, nuts and hot fudge.

No pressure though.

4. Due to Thanksgiving, I was thinking "food".

Not sure if everyone would consider that inclusive.

5. Personally, I think the Photog group and its contests are the best thing about DU

with the possible exception of SCE's LOL cats on Sunday morning.

So, yes, please do a contest. Even if some of us regular photogs find it challenging to enter every month, I think that a lot
of DU enjoys the contests.

6. "Almost anything" sounds good to me

7. Yes for 'almost anything,'

which is what I've found recently!
