An Athenian owl seemed fitting as group icon for the Democratic alphabet.
aristide 10 years ago
tack så mycket, eva! it's just a viennese owl but i hope very democratic nevertheless ;-)
cutesmallfuzzy 10 years ago
Oh boy, this one could take a while to complete! Or maybe not - hopefully all those lurkers we have will join in.

i just found this group and love the themes you have done in the past. Can I take Dd? Do I just post as soon as I find one or are there other rules I should know about?
Off I go in search of an interesting "D".

Eva the Weaver PRO 10 years ago
You cannot take it for granted that you get the chance for D - why not hunt a few other's while you're at it :-) - on the other hand, we don't have a C yet…

This theme is a bit different since nobody can post more than one letter. Usually you can post several to the same theme, just not two in a row.

Yes, you just post as soon as you've got one - particularly for this theme, where there are no special rules about the colour or shape or anything. Just - as always - one letter and only one in the photo.

welcome kelchatorsch! i'll just echo what eva said -- it's always first-come first-served, and you can't post two in a row. and now as i am writing this, we are actually waiting for a D, so if you have it, fire away!
Rootytootoot PRO 10 years ago
oops, posted the d without having read kelchatorsch's post. i remember the days when i thought you could just go out hunting! i'm happy to unpost if kelchatorsch comes up with a d.
Eva the Weaver PRO Posted 10 years ago. Edited by Eva the Weaver (member) 10 years ago
Uhm. I just did the E - strangely enough I've never had an E in the pool before, so I thought that would be the one I wanted to have for this theme.
kelmarpet 10 years ago
Thanks for the info, I'll head out and start looking for some other letters and see what I can come up with.
Eva the Weaver PRO 10 years ago
That is the best strategy - keeping ahead by just collecting. Just beware: our world is SO full of letters, and SO many of them are nice to take pictures of - it can be very addictive.
Monceau PRO 10 years ago
That's an understatement, Eva!

I just put a little note about our current theme in the discussion at the One Letter pool. Am not used to this pool taking more than a day between each letter…
cutesmallfuzzy 10 years ago
Think we should also post a note in the In Alphabetical Order discussion topics?
Eva the Weaver PRO 10 years ago
Yes, why not.
I have just not joined any new groups to be able to spread the word - my REAL obsession is in number hunting ;-)

There hasn't been a new letter for six days now!
Anybody there?
cutesmallfuzzy 10 years ago
The six-day lag tells me that, unfortunately, we don't have many lurkers in the group, or at least that many that actually have letters to post. Most of the members probably never check in at all.
Monceau PRO 10 years ago
So, what should we do?
admin
mag3737 PRO 10 years ago
one option is for us to go poking around in our fellow members' photostreams looking for letters and inviting them to contribute. it's tricky because maybe it'd be a bummer to invite two of the same letter, then have them both post theirs, and then have to turn around and say "oops, sorry, never mind". but the real reason i haven't started doing that yet is that i've just been a little busy.

of course, i have loads and loads of letters that i can use, and i haven't posted one yet, but i'm holding out until i feel like we're stuck even AFTER exhaustively trying to invite other members to post...
Eva the Weaver PRO 10 years ago
After reading this I invited ONE letter I (from someone who is a group member and last uploaded photos to Flickr Feb 27). Shall we give it 24 hours?
admin
mag3737 PRO 10 years ago
sounds good.
admin
mag3737 PRO 10 years ago
J scouted and requested...we shall see.
btw, leo has been overburdened with group participation lately, but i'm sure he will respond to a letter invite as soon as we get "really stuck". (so we have at least two mother lodes waiting for "really stuck" ness.)
Aunt Owwee PRO 10 years ago
J here!@ am I too late????
cutesmallfuzzy 10 years ago
So THAT'S why we suddenly have two new letters in the pool! Great idea.
admin
mag3737 PRO 10 years ago
aunt owwee, not too late, yay, thanks!

I'm sending requests out by contacts, rather than by letter... we'll see!
Eva the Weaver PRO 10 years ago
L next. Are we taking turns requesting?
:mrMark: PRO 10 years ago
Hello, Bonjour
Letter L posted - thanks for the nudge urbanmkr ;-)
admin
urbanmkr Posted 10 years ago. Edited by urbanmkr (admin) 10 years ago
thanks :mrMark:, we are much obliged! :-)

(sent out a few more requests today...)

and there's my vote - I wanted to put an M coz that's what my name begins with... N n next!
Eva the Weaver PRO 10 years ago
Just like I did, then :-)
- choosing your own initial, I mean.
Since you have sent out requests, let's wait for those to appear.

mag3737 PRO 10 years ago
hmm, should i be looking for a spiffy, special T?
wisteriax 10 years ago
what letters are still missing? i want to play!
admin
urbanmkr 10 years ago
well all the letters from N to Z are still missing! but you're only allowed to post one in this alphabet. Usually you can post more, but we're being democratic this time around.
cutesmallfuzzy 10 years ago
Hey, membership jumped dramatically over the past few hours.

urbanmkr Posted 10 years ago. Edited by urbanmkr (admin) 10 years ago

time for a P

i might have waited even longer, but it just so happens that -- at the moment anyway -- a letter T is the 10,000th public photo in my photostream. T for Tom, T for Ten Thousand, how can i resist?

i suggest we get that W next, then leo can delete/repost his X (or change his mind and wait for Z).
Leo Reynolds PRO 10 years ago
It's all getting too exciting for me. Sorry for that mispost.
admin
mag3737 PRO 10 years ago
now it IS time for that X...
cutesmallfuzzy 10 years ago
C'mon, Leo, repost the X! I really liked it ...
Leo Reynolds PRO 10 years ago
Reposted the X so where's a Yy.
cutesmallfuzzy 10 years ago
Y requested.
aristide 10 years ago
almost done :-))
cutesmallfuzzy 10 years ago
Z found and requested.

I hope that member is checking Flickrmail as the last photostream post was back in December.
cutesmallfuzzy 10 years ago
OK - getting tired of waiting - scouted out another Z and invited it.
Monceau PRO 10 years ago
Nice work, connect_the_dots! Thanks for completing this alphabet.
