It's 2008, a new year dawning and time to start thinking about a new year's Cameo Caper!
Continuing the tradition from 2006 and 2007, we once again try or hands at getting a multi-comic cameo caper running on Halloween Eve as well as the days around it, hopefully creating one major comic-arc for the fun and entertainment of everybody!
The Halloween Cameo Caper of 2006 was, to all accounts, a success, and the 2007 edition turned out pretty well, despite the drought that affected a host of artist who's skills and time had been almost drained during the extended run of the Crossover Wars.
We promised, that this year there will be no Crossover Wars, leaving artists free and fit to participate in the Cameo Caper in force... if they choose to!
But, to get down to the specifics of this thread... the Halloween Cameo Caper is an event centered on the 31th of October where characters from all interested comics (no kind or hosts bared) are invited to one hell of a party in a place this thread will help to decide. The original concept is still like it was in the previous years, at the date of Halloween (or the day closest to, taking updates schedules into accounting), all the participants post a strip (canon, none-canon, filler etc.) on their site or here in the forum, showing their characters and as many characters from other comics as possible, having fun and celebratinf the event!
BUT... nothing can prevent any participant from setting up whole storylines centered on the event, and nothing can prevent the participating comics from joining up in crossovers with other comics for the sake of the event like it has been done before! Actually... its totally recommended!
So far you don't have to sign up for anything, first we have to decide where to host the Caper of 2008!
The first year the Caper went to the town of Shelterville in the old Wild West, and last year it visited Disneyland orbiting a faraway planet in the near future... where shall it go this year? Its up to you!
The following is a suggested list of unused options taken from the previous year's poll for a place to host the party.
Under the Sea
Shopping Mall (with zombies?)
The Middle Ages
But... anyone else who has a fantastic idea about where to host the Cameo Caper of 2008? This thread is for suggestions and discussions, and you don't have to even think about signing up for the Cameo Caper just yet, just feel free to take part in the discussion!
The discussion will come to an end at the 17th of February, after which a poll will be set up, featuring the hot topics of the thread, for everyone to vote on the final result... but more on that later.
When the setting has been chosen, a more detailed campaign for the exact location will be provided... so therefore DO come up with various ideas while suggesting and voting... everything helps to make the setting as memorable as the previous ones!
Do NOT sign up for anything yet! Wait until the setting has been chosen and described, then you can sign up like crazy!

EDIT of 18.02.2008
The time for suggesting places to hold the Cameo Caper 2008 is now up, and a poll has been put together with the most popular suggestions (and a couple added by yours sincerely since not enough new spots were suggested...).
The Poll will run until the end of March, after which the winning choice will be chosen and a setting build up from the basic idea, and THEN the signing up and planning can begin!!
On your mark... get set... vote!!
... oh, and for those who do not want to sign up in the forum in order to vote, its possible to "mail-vote" by mailing your choice to your's sincerely.
Also, the options for voting is for everyone, no matter if you consider participating or not...
