As I've said with my very first sentence here: I really didn't want to push anybody into any direction that he/she doesn't want. I had these two reasons to write my post:
- Not everyone does follow every thread here. I wanted to make them aware of this idea that arose in the other thread. I had the impression that the idea was well received there, but I might have erred.
- I personally think, one can't only praise an idea or discuss endlessly we could do this, we could do that, if the opportunity comes up, one should become active. That was all. It was a proposal and could well have been refused. And I didn't want to make any confusion with the regions. If Lolita
doesn't fit this category, okay. Then we would have found a more fitting month.
