Day of the Ghosts
I have a vague idea that might work as a tonic to some of this "blah blah b3ta's shit/dead/whatever" stuff that is pervading the main board of late. I give you...

"The Day of the Ghosts"

The game is simple - get in touch with anyone that you still know from earlier b3ta days, and just ask them to make and post something on this day, and maybe hang around and natter for an hour or so.

Thereafter, if they are lurking, hanging about on Twitter, off in a huff, or otherwise disengaged from the community, then that's fine, but maybe for one day we can see who we can entice out of the wilderness for a short while, set aside any gripes that may have led to departure, and generally have a bit of a laugh. Which is after all what the board is for.

It's a long shot, but one which might just give the b3ta community the chance to give itself a bit of a boost, rather than mope around reminiscing about the old days...

For the avoidance of doubt - "Ghosts" refers to the ghosts of b3ta rather than necessarily a ghost theme. If you want to do pictures of ghosts then all well and good, but it's not necessarily a prescriptive theme.

Kinda had main board in mind with this, but by all means if you wanted to see if you can drag people out of retirement to other boards then feel free.
