      So, "sausage" was on the menu?

      I did some eating myself last night but it was non-lucid , and it wasn't food

      I use two different computers, Three different browsers and it turns up the same along with a few other Idiosyncrasies but
      I seldom post new threads or upload files so for now we'll chalk it up to Bad Karma.. And now everybody has wings but me, Ratz

      I just bought some mucuna pruriens, or L-Dopa. If I get to bed on time tonight, will take some.

      This is what Yuschak says about that:
      Dopamine dreams are fascinating and are my personal favorite type of non-lucid dream. They are always extremely action packed and fully participatory (meaning that the dreamer is fully caught up in the action rather than just observing it).
      There seems to a common theme to dopamine dreams: the dreamer is put in some kind of threatening situation and must overcome some
      type of adversary. On the outside, these dreams often sound like nightmares, but on the inside they are usually characterized by a strong feeling of confidence and a triumphant rush once the dreamer has prevailed. I find these types of dreams thoroughly enjoyable although they may not be for everybody.

      I had a pound bag of bulk M-P in the cupboard, I used some of it and then for some reason quit, I think something in it wasn't good for me and it got hardened up so I threw it out a month erso ago..I have a pound of bulk "Maca" powder up there that I just used tho. I put a bigol scoop of it in a cup of hot chocolate just now..I thicken chili with it, Bake it in bread and I don't know whatall

      ps: Yeah-yeah that's it, I had to look it up, I used bulk Macuna and I have terrible Reflux and that made it worse..That being said I can find no other reason not to use it...

      Awesome new wings! Thanks spellbee2 and gab! But I didn't do basic so I shouldn't have any basic wings... just bonus so far.

      Wow thanks for the new wings! and so fast
      but dont you think that the stars are too small/bad to see? maybe if the stars would be darker/other color or if the outlining would be darker?
      I really like the TOTY wings next year i will attempt some of those tasks and the nice thing is you get those wings after only one task

      edit: i now have some old and some new wings thats interesting will the new wings be also linkt to the lucid task section?

      It's great to see the increased activity on TOTM. The new wings are great! Gotta keep things fresh to keep bringing 'em in. Now I'm really gonna try for TOTY next year!

      Do you guys think that we could get some more members to try for TOTMs, if we added some easier tasks? Like a super easy Basic.

      I'm trying to think of some goals I had while my dreams were short.

      Slow down, look around, describe what you see.
      Touch the ground. What is it? Grass, asphalt?
      Look at your body. What are you wearing?
      Say something out loud.
      Look behind you.
      Look at the skies. Are there clouds, stars?
      Make your fingers longer, or your hand by trying to reach for something further away.


      What do you guys think?

      I think that would be a great way to let beginners participate. And it could help them slowly build up their dream control by starting with super basic, then climbing to basic, advanced, and bonus. Would we keep the normal basic tasks as well and make it possible to complete 7 tasks instead of 5? Would that mess with the coloring and spacing for the badges?

      All good questions, and I hope we can all figure it out with your help, guys.

      They would get same wings as the Basic tasks. (Or, maybe new Beginner wings?)
      So I guess they would get 2 tasks to pick from as well. Others could also do these tasks, but mostly for fun. Honor system, so if you are advanced dreamer, don't ask for wings for the beginner's tasks, haha.

      I like this idea of easier tasks, because this way, we can all mingle in one thread and hopefully learn from each other. And people will have something to strive for. Best way to advance is to try to do tasks you think you can't do.

      We did draw a few new names trolling with new wings but I don't know what to think.. I don't know as it will bring in more participants unless we figure out a way to let them know they're here..How can we advertise the TOTM Thread?

      Get nekked and streak through Lounge? Haha.

      Just what you have been doing already. Dropping a line in RRCC every now and then, talking to new members in chat, welcoming them in Intro zone and inviting them to TOTMs.

      Maybe we could get some cool signature. Like I dunno,

      Lucid Task Club.

      Learn new LDing skills while having fun completing monthly tasks.

      This all sounds fab. The intro class and the comps are both beginner friendly already so that is great. I know that from the intro class one could advertise totm or toty when the tasks are actually achievable.

      Actually getting lucid can be a big struggle for beginners. As we know and from evidence in the intro zone most people give up because of this and leave the site.

      It is this give up strategy that we need to counter to get more traffic on the site. Totm threads just for beginners would provide them with space to learn and achieve without the sense of being a failure if they don't get lucid in a given month. In order to do this a full month of DJ entries could be used as a way to get beginner wings or completing a tutorial could also give you beginner wings along with the two other tasks you have mentioned.

      With beginners having their own thread next to the more advanced dreamers with their own coloured badge could give them a sense of purpose and achievement. When you get 3 of the basic tasks complete then you move up to the advanced dreamers. Something in or around that. Basically you need a goal that a beginner can see as soon as they enter the site that is achievable for them.

      I don't know if we need a new category. Maybe we just need to make sure at least one of the basic tasks is really basic. Something that takes just seconds to do and can work wherever the dreamer is located. When I started out, those are the basic tasks I gravitated to, and once I started intending to do TOTMs as an LD goal, I didn't have much issue with performing them. Tasks like "ask a DC <something>" I think make good "regular" basic tasks, not needing a special category.

      This makes sense because for a beginner it is less about the difficulty of the task and more about lucid frequency. The more times you're lucid in a month the more attempts you can make which in turn increases the probability of completing a task. But lucid frequency is a feedback loop: the more motivated the more likely you become lucid which increases motivation etc. Rather than be discouraged when lucidity isn't achieved within a given timeframe, the beginner should be reminded that every positive step forward, like dream recall or dreaming about the subject, is an accomplishment that is bringing them closer to their goal. Not everyone remains motivated to keep trying if they don't get lucid.
