Is it possible to add more ideas as well?  Just wondering if it's an option just in case (I don't have any other ideas)

I was just realizing that not all our babies will be born in November... some will be October, some will be December.  So November Babies wouldn't apply to all of us. 

 

J- go ahead and add other suggestions in the thread. 

 

Anyone who wants to vote for different contribution can give the post a thumbs up.

This is true, but I think all the other ddcs will be called by months... if not, it would get super confusing. So we might want to keep November... maybe? Or we could change it to Novemberish... (My girls and I love adding -ish to things. lol.gif)

Oh... I wasn't clear before.  I agree... November should be in the title, but maybe not Babies.  We're all due in November, that's what brings us together, but our babies may not all be born in November.  So I guess, for me, it makes sense to stick with November Due Date Club.  But I'm probably more sensitive to that since I'm due on the 28th and therefore much more likely to end up with a December baby than most of you.  smile.gif

What about November 2011 Babes LOL LOL!  Then it's referencing US!  Just teasing, yeah I see your point Jaimee.  Could we shorten it to November DDC though?  Maybe it's just a personal preference but the name seems so long when it's November 2011 Due Date Club.

I'm fine with the abbreviation.  Maybe November 2011 DDC?

Cynthia has finally contacted me to set up the social group so we need to officially decide on the name.  I assume we want the winner from the poll, with the abbreviation for DDC?

Okay, that's the name I told Cynthia.  She also asked if we wanted to approve new members or allow anyone to join.  My first thought was to approve new members.  Kami, you and I would be doing that manually.  But I can change it to be open if we prefer that.  I go back and forth on it.  On one hand, it would be easier and less intimidating for people to join if no approval process was required, plus less work for us.  But on the other hand, you could end up with questionable lurkers and DDCCer's.  So I dunno.  Requiring approval feels more intimate and keeps the group full of members that actually want to be there and participate, but it will cause a lot of people not to join who might have jumped in once or twice here and there if it was easy to join.

 

Thoughts?

It seems better to approve membership so no questionable lurkers.
