This is version two of the thread for waiting bee’s to bring up/discuss issues, arrange votes on big desisions, ask questions and suggest ideas for polls and discussion questions.
(Please don’t request to be added to or taken off the list here, do that on the latest waiting list thread)
Scoll down for FAQ and a list with links to all the Waiting Lists posted since I became list keeper and all the polls and discussion questions. (That way you’ll know what has already been done when you make suggestions for polls and discussion questions)

How can I be added to the list?
Comment on the latest Waiting List Thread and ask to be added, that’s all there is to it 🙂
How do I get taken off the list?
Comment on the latest Waiting List, or PM the current list keeper. If you are engaged, be sure to include a link to your proposal story post. No matter why you need to be taken off the list PLEASE include your current number, it makes things so much easier.
I’m engaged, and posted a thread about it. Why am I still on the list?
You need to comment on the waiting list or PM the list keeper, you can’t expect that they will see it otherwise.
I was on the list, but I’m not anymore. I didn’t ask to be taken off. What happened?
You were probably taken off the list during a “waiting list clean up” which happens twice a year. Unfortunately if you did not respond to the clean up list thread asking to remain on the list you were removed. You can request to be added again at the bottom of the list.
I was on the list and responded to the latest clean up thread, but still can’t find myself on the list. What have you done?!?!?!
Make sure to check the entire list before you panic. On most computers, using CTRL+F will allow you to do this. Your name is probably still on the list, just higher than you expected. If you still can’t find your name, let the list keeper know and they will sort it out.
Everyone else’s engagment blurbs are longer/better than mine. Why?
The list keeper can only work with the details she is given. Bee’s who give more details will have longer blurbs, Bees’s who are very clear will have better written blurbs, Bee’s who are good at sumerizing will have less awkwardly written blurbs. Grammar and spelling mistakes are inevitable 🙂
I have an idea for a poll or discussion question. What now?
Okay, no one has come even close to asking this yet, but PLEASE give me ideas! Comment here, on the waiting list or PM me 🙂
