Tonight will be my first time posting the waiting list. This is very exciting for me! With a nod to purplebee for her listkeeping, I’m curious if anyone has any suggestions/improvements or any ideas for the list.
I’m planning on hopefully sprucing it up a bit, but I’m interested in what other waiting bees think!
For now, I think I’m going to keep my ideas a secret…

@Tunacupcakes: Can you strass a list? ‘Cause sparkles make everything better.

@helenberrycrunch: lol gotta love uber sparkle! Congrats on becoming the list keeper! I hope there is no drama!
I think the proposals should only be kept for a month. Like if you are posting today, you should only include June and July proposals instead of May, June, and July.

@Tunacupcakes: I think we should try to keep things as neat and clean as possible. Sometimes the list gets overly long with 3-4 months of proposals. Maybe we could do just 2 months or even one month of proposals to try to shorten it up.
Also, not that you wouldn’t, but I would like to see the list kept as fair as possible with new people entering at the bottom of the list and moving upwards like the rest of us.
@helenberrycrunch: I like the idea of strassing! Glitter and Sparkles oh my!!

Yes! Sparkles do make everything better! If I can find a forum post…. strasser? I will use it generously. Just like on my myspace profile back in the day.
Ok, fairness. Definitiy important. What’s the general opinion on name changes in the list?
Also, how often should the list be cleaned up? I can certainly include a clause, but I think the list needs to be cleaned up more than once a year. There are a few waiting bees who once added to the list, are never heard from again. I think cleaning the list up would be good, but if that isn’t preferred, it’s not a biggie.

@LondonAmericana: Thanks for the vote of confidence!

I agree that the blurbs should be kept to just the current month, and the previous month. I also agree that the list should be cleaned up more often than once a year. Maybe every 3 months? Like, once a new season rolls around, it’d be time to clean it up, a la: time for the Spring/Summer/Fall/Winter Cleaning of the List.
Can’t wait for the new list!

@wonderwoman217 – I second that!
I’ve gotten into the habit of telling Mr. C what number I am on the list each week – I wonder if that will hurry him up?
Post # 12
YAY! First… I totally agree, you are going to be an amazing list-keeper 🙂
I also vote for cleaning the list (I like the idea of seasonal as Wonderwoman127 mentioned). Maybe allowing 2 weeks for people to post if they want to be kept on the list, that should be ample time for people to get on and see the post.. And I also agree with only keeping the past 1-2 months of proposal stories at the bottom. That will help a lot. I will think on new ideas, but I am not very original right now… lol
Have fun and good luck!!! 😀 I’m excited for the new list tonight!

The list has always been fair, so Tunacupcakes wouldn’t be changing anything there.
I agree with keeping the amount of proposals on the list to one month. Any more than that seems pointless, as the old lists can always be found on the board. I definitely hope that you have some other new ideas! Have fun with it!

Yay cant wait to see what you come up with.

As far as clean-up, I would want to wait at least a month to let people post! I’m not the most active poster, but I do read the boards pretty much every day, and I would be super sad to be taken off the list if I didn’t post during a two week stretch!!

@Tunacupcakes: Yay for you on list keeping!
Since I am a new bee, could you please add me to the waiting list? I hope this was the right place to ask!
