For realsies, we’d love to hear all of your ideas on ways to make our post-a-thons even more fun! ๐Ÿ™‚  We can’t guarantee that we will implement everyone’s fabulous ideas, but we will try to do what we can!

I always like games, but I also worry that having games AND a chat thread going on will take away from all of the, erm, “real” threads that users post during the post-a-thon. ๐Ÿ˜‰ And we don’t want that!

i wish there was a way to have an actual “chat” so that you didn’t have to refresh to see replies/maybe it could be more of a conversation. but that’s probably not a feasible option. :/

@sleepyhead22:  Don’t worry!  I didn’t discover the Ideas section until not too long ago myself! (Durf you would think I would know about it…)

It would be neat if there would be some way to make it like a chat room where we all talk at once. Not sure how possible that is.

@Birdee106:  If you want to post that to the Ideas section of the site, we can all go vote on it! As that’s something that would require a big build from tech (not something the hostesses could do on their own!). Thanks!

Here’s a question – how would you all feel about some kind of friendly competition during post-a-thons?  We can give silly awards during the post-a-thons.  Thoughts?

A thread based only on movie/song quotes? And I like the awards idea, nothing is wrong with some healthy competition!

I think it would be fun! The timings are a bit tricky for me though, since they all start PST, the postathons generally don’t start until 8:00pm here, and since my bedtime’s 10:00pm, it doesn’t give much scope for Bees in different timezones.

@minipenguin:  @RoelJm:  Something to consider then!

@chronicwhimsy:  We’ve started post-a-thons anywhere from 10:00 AM Eastern to 7:00 PM Eastern. We try to vary it month by month to account for different time zones. ๐Ÿ™‚
