Since last year's calendars were such a success, we'd like to do them again this year. This time, however, we're doing a montage of all photos that are submitted for each month (provided enough photos are submitted, and they meet the requirements). This is just a preliminary discussion thread, so feel free to share your ideas on what you'd like to see! We would just love some feedback on them for now.
Oh, for the love of FSM... there are so few black atheists that it's not surprising there may have only been 1 or 2 on that calendar, or none at all. And if none of them submitted pictures, then how else are they going to get on the calendar?
Stop assuming the worse. Implying racism where there might be none is just dangerous.
I know we aren't racist! But I think we should make the effort, in that if no non-whites volunteer images ... to maybe give a special shout-out? to maybe give some encouragement. They know their communities are harsh on atheists so it may be harder for them to make a public display.
I like the multiple people per page and involving both genders on a single calender. Depending on the number of entries, we could have more participants this year. Up to 4 people per page would equal 48 possible participants as well as 48 awesome quotes (I really like the quote idea).
I wasn't around for last years calendar but I like the idea of a calendar... sounds like a fun project! I like the idea of having 4 people per page and including favorite quotes... to avoid repeats of quotes I think everyone should submit several quotes with their pictures. I also like the idea of including famous atheist's birthdays and scientific events and such on the calendar.
I don't know if I'll get a lot of support on this idea, but how about including scientific quotes (as already suggested) but also mix it up with philisophical quotes about morality by atheist philosophers too?
