So, I think that went well; there are lots and lots of fabulous posts and comments and discussion that I found and linked to and there may be more I haven't seen.

(One Very Important Note for contributors; PLEASE come and drop me a link to your post. This somehow did not happen consistently this round, and it really does matter. Even if you know I read you, I might be ill, or behind, or distracted, or even mistakenly think that you're making a private post about cooking and don't WANT a bunch of strangers dropping in, and I might miss your post, or not know I am meant to link it, and that would be SAD. A lot of posts got linked later than I would have liked because of this issue, and I am haunted by the fear I may have missed a whole pile somewhere.)

In general, many thanks and much love to all of you, I was afraid to commit to hosting more than one round because of my spoon-supply issues, but this round was surprisingly manageable. I am, for now, inclined to keep hosting the carnival, at least for one or two more rounds. I generally like to make sure things are at a certain level of maturity before I foster them out, if I can; it seems to make for better longevity.

Ergo, a poll.

Discussion of any or all issues related to the carnival is MOST welcome in comments; the poll is meant to get me certain information which I want to have in a handy format, not to limit general discussion.

There is a potential awesomeness-increasing option for this carnival that you haven't thought of; I am about to point it out and offer to help implement it, or at least make suggestions!

I don't want to commit to a regular gig but I hear rumours you have a chronic illness; if you're flat on your back next deadline I'd be willing to join the Last-Minute Carnival Saviour Squad!

I can't do anything concrete, but I'll think good thoughts and say good words about the carnival or send people over here if I get a chance! (Don't think I don't value this: trust me, I do! - MRN)

timing, and place for discussion

I'd suggest on some memorable dates, such as Equinox and Solstice. Yes, that would be every three months. My attention span doesn't run for six months.

And/or, to keep the attention span warm, some on-going centralized place for more casual commenting and discussion between Carnivals. Your posts announcing the Carnival got a lot of good discussion in their comments, but I didn't see such lively interest in the comments to the actual posts others made at their own journals.

PS: What does "I'll collect posts" mean?
