Hi everybody,

so we are planning to do a (monthly, but pausing in August) community shave! We collectively choose a soap, and on D-day, everybody uses the same soap for their SOTD.

We need to know several things:

  • Who would be interested in participating? If you would like to join, respond to this message by including “I’m in!”
  • When will we do it? It would be best to choose a Wednesday, Saturday, or Sunday, to avoid clashing with the reddit theme days, and it would be easier to organize if we could avoid the beginning of July. Furthermore, it would be probably best to fix it once and for all (something like third Wednesday or last Sunday of the month). Opinions?
  • Finally, we need to agree on a soap. I don’t know how to poll this (I know you can do a poll on Mastodon, not sure about lemmy). The idea would be: everybody who participates nominates a soap, and if that soap is picked, that person agrees to send out smushes to everyone who doesn’t have the soap. In order to be on the safe side, we probably would want to have the soap picked three weeks before the chosen date.

There are surely things that I have forgotten. Any ideas, questions?

    Once we have collected participants and nominations here, we could make a standalone post with the options listed and participants give their ranked vote (first preference, second, etc) in comments?

    Good idea!

    One wrt Don José: Do you know whether they put in real bananas? I’m a bit worried, because banana gave me a angioedema 20 years ago, and I have avoided them ever since 😱

      banana gave me a angioedema

      Ouch!

      Unfortunately I’m not sure. Is not in the list of ingredients of the new hard soap, but I have the old soft version, and can’t find a list it’s ingredients. I’d guess no, but can’t be sure

        Thinking about it, even if there’s banana in it, it shouldn’t be too much of an issue: allergy tests apply the substance on the skin, and make a small incision. It’s just like careless shaving 🤣
