Hello everyone hi.gif us Lounge mods have been planning behind the scenes for this as ever and we decided that we would like to instate a change to this format.

We felt that it was getting hard to distinguish between 'best contribution' and 'best thread' so we are scrapping the former category and widening the latter category. It made sense when the list was always so long for thread nominations but it was harder to find things appropriate for contribution. So now we will have best poster and a top 3 for threads!

So, without further ado, we would like to recognise the following in The Lounge for the month of October:
  • Best poster for October 2017: Mattias
It was a no brainer this time for poster as Mattias has been back with a bang! Even having a quick comb through the Lounge results in plentiful well-received Mattias threads popping up. We thought the likes of: 'what poster do you have the most in common with musically', 'Lyrics that speak to you', 'Moral Alignment Thread' and 'Have you ever inspired a thread?' just to name a handful were brilliant for boosting discussion this month. Keep up the good work!
  • Best threads for October 2017:
01) rave.dj by UltraReputation

This nomination was instantly unanimous for all 5 of us. Sam posted a thread to show us her creations on rave.dj, a site where you can mash-up two songs. Before long loads of us were getting involved with making our own creations! This resulted in lots of laughs and being in awe at how well certain mash-ups worked. This thread went on to inspire the 'Rave.dj: Your Creation' competition (5 hours left to confirm for anyone interested!!) and generally brought so much buzz to the Lounge this month with 12 pages of response.

02) Your Gender by LexC

This month Lex posed the question 'How do you feel about your gender?' to all of us in the Lounge. We felt that this topic was extremely thought-provoking and resulted in lots of interesting discussion from our members. This was a great example of how to turn a subject quite close to your heart into a strong discussion. It was excellent to observe so much passion for the topic in one thread.

03) Adapt a song for a Buzzjack member by burbe

Our final shout for this month is now something pretty lighthearted! burbe aka Ben wanted us to come up with alternative song titles that incorporate the personalities of Buzzjack members. Michelle McManus - 'All This Grime' for ML Hammer95 for example kink.gif we thought this thread was something a bit different and enjoyed some of the witty responses that you guys came up with.

Congrats to all of our October winners!

Well done the winners, especially ultraviolence with sparking the rave.dj craze on Buzzjack biggrin.gif and LexC with the more serious thread about gender. Commonsense misses out though, out of the normal non moderator members he has been brill on the lounge this month with his excellent food threads and the joke thread sad.gif

Oh my! Thanks Lounge mods ohmy.gif I don't know what happened to me this month, I tried to count how many threads I created this month (I wanted to use the search function on my profile but the flood control got in the way lol) and couldn't even keep up! Personally for me, I think the birthday guessing thread was the most fun :')

I knew Ultra would win best thread for rave.dj and I did also have a feeling that LexC would get recognition for the thought-provoking and raw gender thread! Good choices <3

Funniest Reply tbh. Although bit unfair as my 3 posts a month should ensure my win
