I do believe we have a "Maybe Anything" in our list.
And sadly, we already have done Animals, but we can always revisit old build off themes...right?...Right admins?
As for new Years Resolutions, I'm sure that everyone has their unique resolutions.
Maybe a Sea Life theme?
Hmm. I remember that we have done an underwater theme before. We had a huge underwater tank and things. But I do wish to see like a squid attack.

*Koff* Steampunk theme mebbe? *Koff*
There was a "In 2013 I wish that.." Theme around new years, Kong did a vid showcasing it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KOyCnWMluOw
Although I guess that's somewhat different from a resolution.
My resolution is to take part in the resistance against the Squid Attacks in that case, would be interesting seeing what others have in mind for 2015 :P

I kind of like any of the 1-5-block-types-only challenges. I remember suggesting a while ago, a Nether-blocks-only build (made much easier since Quartz); but even a wool only, or Clay Only build could be interesting. A wooden-only sort of build would be really easy (Too easy honestly) with all the different shades of fences, doors and planks available. Now that there are two kinds of sandstone, that's even an option... good thing those two colors look good together.

I would like to see some sort of Steampunk theme, too. It should be quite interesting on what people will make.
And as for the "In 2013 I wish that..." is really a resolution but more of a wish sort of thing. Like I wished that I learned how to dance sort of thing.

Hmm. Block-limiting themes is interesting. We'll see a lot of creative builds. I would disagree you, Wolf, with the wood only theme. Clay and wool has far more colors than the six types of wood we have. Plus, doors and fences aren't whole blocks, and most of them would be used for decoration. The Sandstone one, though. That would be quite odd. But if there's a will, there's a way.

With wood you have six colors, but you have doors, half-slabs, steps, fences, gates, planks, logs, etc... giving you, at the very least, 42 block-types to pick from. There may be less color options for wood, but there's more variety for what you can do with it (tables, chairs, Chandeliers, etc.)

If you're doing a wool-challenge, you only have the 16 colors and that's it. ;) Though to be fair, if you do a large-scale build, wool could still be used for tables and such, but the rest of the build would have to be huge.

I think the wood-only and sandstone-only theme are interesting but there isn't any color that can be done with just sandstone; its a fairly neutral color itself and not much can be made with those in my opinion besides buildings (or sail-less boats with the wood), could be part of some kind of "one- block and it's variations type theme".
Such as; each participant entering may choose one material type (Clay, Wood, Stone/Cobble, Blah blah etc) and build using that type and it's variants as the main part of their build but be able to use other blocks as decorations or things such as buttons for diversity and interiors. Although, I guess block-limiting is a bit broad, yet it would make for a neat challenge ;)

This might be a really late post (Considering that most of these posts are from January and February) but I have a few ideas!

- Sweets/desserts
- Crystals/gems
- Pets/animals (as many others have suggested too c: )
- Flowers/plants
- Ancient ___ (Egypt, Greece, Rome, any ancient society!)

Ik this is late but I think a planet theme would be cool, doesn't have to be huge planets but I have seen some pretty cute builds based around little planets :) Or space in general, like satelites or spaceships and rockets! I really love pastels idea about the crystals, I hope that one hasn't been done yet so I can participate :P
