I had great time with last challenge, listening your barking creations and writing mine.

I’ve prepared a 3 pools of suggestions. You can vote for each one of them and January challenge will be made of the top 3 winners. I’ll probably have to make arbitrary decisions for being precise, but we will get the general idea.

If you have new smart and dumb ideas for February, please answer this thread and I will suggest them for next month.
