Is judging a poll to the public forum? Can we make a requirement in order to vote?

I would like to suggest that the voting be hidden so that the results so far don't affect the people who are coming in later to vote. Not sure how that would work in this system, but i will look into it.

I think it would be wise to end the voting and pick a winner a couple of days before the start of the next month's contest. This will give the winner time to log in and see that they have won and pick a new subject for the next month. Not everyone logs in every day. Not even me. (sorry, bitches, I have a real life too! )

I will check the poll options and soon start a first topic poll to kick this off. Or someone can just go ahead and pick a topic TOMORROW since it's the first day of the month already.

I tested the poll options and there is no option to hide results once you've voted, so nothing to be done there. It will not show who's voted for what until the person votes, then the results will be shown.

Ok, I'm busting out my DSLR and some lighting equipment and I'm ready! (Just kidding, I don't have lighting equipment or even know how to use it if I had it...)

Looks like we have the basics down. Now for a theme.

What if we did a somewhat open theme like brewing ingredients?
Grain
Extract
Hops
Yeast

Sure

Keeping it broad is good so that folks who do all grain / extract will have opportunity to take part

My apologies for not following up with this. I have been distracted by bottling my last batch and a new induction brewing system I am building.

I have one reply so far on the idea of brewing ingredients for our first topic. Anyone else oppose or can we go for it?

I think "brewing ingredients" is a great place to start - The essentials! Later could come SS and automated brewstand beauties. I imagine most of us initially started homebrewing with just the basics and grew from there. This could almost be a tutorial and growing knowledge thread with pictures.

Just my two pennies.
