Shrine Baby Ban?
« on: February 22, 2008, 05:35:56 PM »

As the purpose of the shrine is to show off, particularly to radio program directors, that women listen to the show, should we ban babies from the shrine?

This may upset the few parents that have taken the time to photograph their babies for the shrine, but the fact is babies can't really listen to the show as much as they can hear it.

I'm thinking that the requirement should be that the submitter need be old enough to send us her own photo.

Your thoughts?

If you are playing FTL for you infant baby, that shows a level of fandom that simply baring 3/4 of your your boobies can never match.

SAVE THE BABIES!!!

Well, If you're using it as something to show off to possible affiliates, I'd say drop he babies (figuratively, of coarse).  You want to stay as professional as possible.  Babies may be good for an 'awww, ain't she cute?' from time to time, but it's not something program managers are gunna like.

IDK, I rambled a bit too much.

Maybe we should change the logo...

Imagine Mom telling the baby that it's time to turn on Mr. Ian and Mr. Mark and listen to them talk about FREEDOM.  What a great first word for any baby.  And then you go from there.

I think I see what you are asking.
Ian, I think that when people send photos to be on the shrine, the "shriner" should be in the photo. If said photo includes a baby with the mother, no problems.
But, a solo baby?
I agree, they should not be there.

The baby shrine is an interesting idea. People can make that a separate site or forum from this BBS any  time they wish.

I suggest a ratio - only one baby for every thirty ladies.

Given the oft repeated, women of all ages, shapes, sizes, etc... this would be my understanding.

Of course, people who are against the nanny state hate babies, so should we really be surprised by this proposed ban?  :wink:

What? Ban babes? But the whole point of the shrine is to show off the babes that listen to FTL!
