...Anyone else wanting to toss in ideas do so and I'll add them to the list.
Long exposure / composite, perhaps? Just throwing it into the hat...

I'm up for trying this challenge for once! Looking forward to be able to change lenses (compared to the single in). It's snowing too currently so I should be able to get a nice shot tomorrow!

---------- Post added 11-30-17 at 03:54 PM ----------

Week 1: Friday Dec 1st - Thursday Dec 7th (THEME: Feature the Color RED)
Week 2: Friday Dec 8th - Thursday Dec 14th (THEME: Light)
Week 3: Friday Dec 15th - Thursday Dec 21st (THEME: Animals)
Week 4: Friday Dec 22nd - Thrusday Dec 28th (THEME: Macro )
Bonus Days: Friday Dec 29th - Saturday Dec 31st (BONUS THEME: Textures)

Feel free to kibitz - nothing is set in stone. I also would suggest that Xmas day may be it's own theme - and similarly for holidays - but bonus fun if you can do the weekly theme combined with the holiday.

I am going to go setup events for these to help remind people. The events and the text above can be changed I'm just trying to get ahead of the curve here to make sure it's done while I have a few minutes.

Looks good, seems a fairly comprehensive list of themes and a decent selection for the month, nothing to difficult to achieve there.

Take a look at the calendar when you have a sec. The theme days for Single In seem unlabeled with their group name. I contacted the latest event owner and told them that we may collide if we don't label. I tried to make mine seem clear.

Just had a look, it would seem the daily themes are all listed on the single group, whereas the single themes come up on both the daily and single calendars.

Just checked again and they are all listed on both, but the upcoming events are only listed on the single group. On my phone so it might be having an effect but it's all a bit muddled up as is.

Even with as much as I was really enjoying it, I was not able to contribute past half way through last month, for a number of reasons i.e. waning daylight, crappy weather, a couple of lens letdowns, to name a few, and most recently, and still ongoing, a bad cold that is kicking my butt and is sapping my ambition to get out and shoot, or do much of anything else. I even had a couple of random days where I had a postable shot and just didnít get them posted. I will take December off and look to get back in in the new year.
I will be following along though as I am interested to see how this theme idea plays out.

Both Single In and Daily In are part of the Monthly Photo Challenges group - the events should be by group not thread.
Look at the weekly calendar - it was weird until refreshed on mine.

I didn't even know there was a calendar!

Looks busy! Maybe it would be enough to just have the weekly theme listed on the first day of each theme week? Just a thought. I probably won't ever go to that calendar page again haha..

Will report back when I get on the PC, the phone has never meshed well with the group system on here.


So it would appear the calander system is a bit odd, if you go to create a new event, on the social group dropdown it only lists monthly photo challenges, which links to the single in group and puts event notices up on there. Seems to me that someone in power needs to add a link to the daily in group on there and then the events could be seperate.
As it is all the themes that have been added give a notice on the single in group, which I imagine would be annoying if you were only doing that challenge.

I could but I thought this was more accurate. Also you can setup event notifications.

Took me a while to find the calendar - I've never used it before either .

Just for feedback UV, on my refreshed Mac laptop, when I click on the DIC Group and then Calendar, it has each weekly theme specified for each day of the week and labelled clearly as Daily In. Underneath on single (ie not repeated) days are the Single In themes although they are not labelled as such.

Thanks Brad for setting this up; the themes look good to work with.

Edit: OK just had a look at the Single In Group page - I see what you're getting at. Sorry, but I don't have the expertise required to fix. Perhaps it might be worth approaching Adam for assistance?

Right, I think I have this figured out, as is the themes get listed on the Monthly Photo Challenges group (ie. the Single In group) which is not ideal.
I just created a group to see what the options were, and I reckon clicking the option to allow group members to create events should sort it, obviously the creator of the group would need to do this (Todd). When I then went to the calender it allowed me to create an event specifically for my group which gives the event notice at the top like it does on the single in group.

Weird. Thought both groups were part f monthly challenges. I'm happy to move them.
