Those are some good ideas. I think you may be right about choosing a subject everyone is familiar with - a picture of something unknown might help,
but I'm sure a widely familiar subject would be more effective. Still undecided though, so nothing's set in stone.
BTW, I'd kind of like to set the deadline date to this Wednesday instead of Saturday (if that's okay with you), but the Edit button has disappeared
from my first post. This also means I won't be able to edit in the subject when the time comes
. Maybe I should start a new thread once I decide?
Or is there some other way to edit my first post?
Paper_Chaser: Without a doubt the subject will have to be something entirely positive. That's an interesting point about the weather. But I don't
think something like rain, for example, would be harmful (but I guess it could be).
banyan: Yeah, I hope a lot of even non-members will participate. I see this thread has about ~600 views, so I guess it couldn't possibly be more than
this though. I guess this is a good reason to wait for Saturday to perform the experiment.
For the subject, weather seems like one of the easiest things to do, but it certainly isn't the most exciting. Trying to help someone with an illness
is a really good cause and would be a little more dramatic than changing the weather, but that might be too large a task for the number of people who
will probably participate in the first experiment.
Also, when do you think I should announce the decided subject? Should I keep it secret till the last moment, or have it posted for days so we can
