    Honestly, crazy this, or crazy that, challenges seem a bit boring. If I was going to make a suggestion it would be to take these challenges in from the weeds, which they now seem to be lost in.

    all you have to do is win, and then the challenges are at your command. :)

    I was just reading through a couple of those old threads; in the discussion of one of them NYI suggested a potentially fantastic theme:

    "Fixed it" - take an outfit you've already posted in the WAYWRN at least the week before (to prevent "gaming" by posting a deliberately bad first outfit during the challenge week), and improve it for your entry, submitting the old outfit alongside the new. It would be a great learning opportunity for all of us, though it would limit entries to those already posting in WAYWRN. To broaden entries, one could do it as a "Thought Process" challenge, where you post what you were going to wear and also what you actually wore, describing why you changed/improved a detail. Voters can decide for themselves how to vote (i.e. purely on absolute success of outfit, or most improved, or a blend).

    That's the best one I've read yet. That NYI... he may have a goofy beard. But he's a smart SOB.

    That's a great suggestion from NYI. Perhaps this week's winner will be inspired by it.

    I think that's brilliant. I like my suggestion of a "What would you wear to (x) event" challenge, and those suggestions above are even better.

    Great idea. Don't see why we couldn't allow people to post fits from some of the prior challenges in lieu of WAYWRN fits to attract a broader audience. In principle the "Fixed It" concept would remain the same.
