I keep forgetting to announce our SWEEPS MONTH GIMMICKS in advance - or even after they've happened - and we're already a third of the way through the month, so here's the quick'n'dirty list of what I happen to remember at this moment. Feel free to suggest/add things for me to ignore

NO SIGNATURES DAY
TROLL AMNESTY
EVERYONE IS BANNED DAY (probably the day after TROLL AMNESTY)
ANNUAL RATINGS WIPEOUT
EVERYONE IS CRZ DAY
EVERYONE IS FEMALE DAY
GUESS WHO'S POSTING DAY

and most importantly

FIRST POST EVER BY LE (dependent on LE's participation)

"Day" may be replaced with "weekend" or even "week" depending on how busy the admins are, or how cool they think the idea is

Depending on what powers are given out, Everyone is CRZ Day could be very cool or very, very bad. Or you might just change everyone's username. Guess Who's Posting Day also sounds very interesting.

No signatures day? Who ever would have thought of an idea like that? :-) pssssst - can you make it permanent, or an option? Pretty please?

Everyone is female day? You have to bring back the Ladies' Only Forum

Guess who's posting day? Neat idea

Did I use too many question marks? That's rhetorical, by the way.

Is this all an attempt to test out some new AcmlmBoard features?

I'd love to see an "ADMIN FOR A DAY" contest or something to go hand-in-hand with W of the day.

I can't tell you how much office-related busywork I got done during BANS A MODERATOR DAY, so I'm tingly with anticipation of what's next, and so is my boss.

When I first created my account I went into the Edit Profile section and set the Graphics Mode to "Dial-Up". EVERY day is Sweeps Month for me.

I did the same thing a couple of years back when I realized how distracting the signatures/backgrounds were when I was in the office. I accidentally clicked onto "Full Graphics" mode a couple of months ago, and it was overwhelming. I don't know how you folks can keep going through this forum with all that going.

And for some odd reason, the complete opposite is true for me. For a short while I was on dial-up access, and thus (surprise!) went to Dial-Up mode. For whatever reason, I found it to be odd and unwieldy to read.

It's true that signatures stop being funny or interesting after the first time you see it (my sig referencing a week-old news story being an example), but for some reason I feel like I need them to get the Full W Experience. Maybe it's a matter of me being more comfortable with what I'm more familiar with.



...that's right. I said "the Full W Experience," big whoop, wannafyedabowdit?

Where's the big reset with who has rated the most and what not?

That one threw me just now. I checked into the Raw thread and found myself thinking "Whoa, SchippeWreck had a SEX CHANGE? When did I miss that?!".

I thought the same about Jaguar from the Video Game thread. And got really confused until I noticed my name was in purple too.

Troll Amnesty Day.... Uh, does this imply that no one will get banned for anything they do? Are there limits? Should I just duck and cover on this day?
