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?

    Why not vote for your own? We nominate soaps we’d like to share, so “winning” means doing volunteer work. That feels ok

      If everyone voted for their own there could be 5 entries, each with a single vote (no winner). If you can’t vote for your own you have to vote for something else, so the higher chance of something getting at least 2 votes.

      With a small number of voters and a relatively large number of things to vote on, it makes sure there’s a winner.

          I wish. Voting by upvote is a bit lacking compared to ranked voting!
