About fair trade (2010): "I first started learning about Fair Trade fashion simply because I did a piece of geography course work on it. I thought why isn't everything Fair Trade? From that point I started to look for labels that were Fair Trade and started researching it. When I thought of Fair Trade I thought of bananas and coffee and I thought this was as far as it went. But, of course pretty much anything can be Fair Trade. My collection is very much based on cotton and jersey which all can be made Fair Trade and organic. It's so great to work with something that hasn't been made with chemicals and is helping someone abroad who isn't earning a lot of money. The great thing about these clothes is that they are comparable to high street prices so affordable but go towards a really good cause. You win all around."

Should We Bring Back the Calendar Competition?

In December we ended our calendar competition. That post had the biggest response in comments we’ve had in a long time, with many people saying they were sad to see it go, or wished it could continue. I too was sad that the competition was over after so many years and have had thoughts of bringing it back. It’s been gone a few months now. Would you still like to have a competition? And do you have any suggestions for getting more people to participate in making calendars?

I know there has been a lot of Emma news the last few days. Sorry, I’ll try to catch up on that tomorrow.

For now, here is our calendar for March thanks to Jia.

    In my opinion, the calendar competition should only be brought back if there are enough number of interested participants. If it is not the case, then you can select the best from all few entries submitted and post it as calendar of the month while a fresh idea comes into play.

    Probably the voting system has to be improved too. The faster it can be done, the better for all of us. Maybe a good way to vote is by creating a survey. By doing this we can vote here and not using the email or google.

    I think there are other features than can be improved, i.e. what happened with the Watson Weekly? The last magazine was issued… on 2012! .. almost 5 years of that. Also a new gallery is needed. If you are not going to have a gallery anymore, then remove the link. The chat also needs some attention, but well, I’m already going off-topic.

    In the beginning this site had a lot of activity but now it has slowed down because is being left with only the people that are truly Emma fans. I hope we can help dook to keep this site alive as much as possible.

      Thank you for the comments D-one. From the little response it appears there is not enough interest anymore. I think that might be a good idea for me to select one from entries if people do want to send them. The google voting actually worked rather well. The problem with a survey or poll on the site is that it is too open to cheating, and sadly, some people will cheat even for something like this.

      The problem with Watson Weekly, the chat, and everything is lack of interest. Both from fans, and people to work on the site. I have tried a number of times to recruit new people but have not been successful. If I could find good people to help, the site could be active again, and with timely updates.
