I did this last year. It was itchy and patchy and all around crappy. My girlfriend stopped loving me for 30 days (emotionally). It was basically a shitty neckbeard.

To you I say "Never Again!"

Okay dudes. Don't get so cocky (although congratulations on your beardy beauty.)
There are official rules to this best month of all months.

The #1 rule is on the last day of October, you shave. Completely clean shaven (you can leave sideburns I guess). Then at the end of Novembeard the man with the best month's worth of growth wins a prize. The prize is that he knows he is the manliest man.

Here is some theme music.

I would do this, as I don't have a girlfriend to worry about angering, but it would just look like I forgot to shave for a bit less than a week.

I will do this but I absolutely will not shave my sideburns. I am quite happy for the sideburn area not to be counted in my case, though my sideburns are ball-rendingly awesome.

I did Manuary this past January, and I got very little beard/mustache growth past the first two weeks (I'm half Asian and can't exactly get anywhere near a full beard or mustache.  It grows about 1/4 to 1/2 inch and then essentially stops).  It was ok cause my girlfriend was studying abroad that winter and I wasn't getting any anyways. 

This November, no.

I may see if I can get my boyfriend on this, though he is already cultivating a fine beard.

Liz, unless something happens and I suddenly have a boy who does not appreciate No Shave November, it's you're legs vs. mine. And Emaline's. I am shaving my pits, though, because I am not dealing with hairy pits. (Besides, I haven't shaved my legs this month anyways, so I'm sure I can deal with shaving them and then letting it grow out again.)

And don't hate, Joe Hocking.

No way.  I cannot deal with not shaving.  It's too itchy for too long.  I've tried before and I get a week and a half before I try to remove my own face.

Do I just use regularhair conditioner on my beard?  I've tried a lot of things (I've heard that shaving cream helps soften it, and does for a short time), but none of them seemed to work well enough.

I'll do the no leg shave! If a boy can't handle a little leg hair than he sucks. I did it last year too, and was with a dude but he preferred me not shaving. He also has the best beard still.

i'll probably do it.

But i am not very manly at all so there will be no beard by the end of the month. I will, however, have a pretty wicked mustache by then...except it'll be blonde so you won't be able to see it anyway.

Can we post before shaving, after shaving, and after growing pictures?

Also, I don't know if it is really necessary to do before shaving pictures? I have been keeping up with shaving pretty well so the before and after shaving won't be to different. But we will do after shave and at the end of the month! May the best leg hair WIN.

If you don't have any hair prior to the shaving, then it is relatively pointless.

But if you have hair it might be neat to compare it to at the end of the November.

I probably won't shave my burns either. But because they are assuredly less ball-rendingly awesome than yours, I might trim 'em.

I'd love to participate but I need a full beard for the first week of December and I am not confident in my ability to re-grow what I currently have by that time.  I can probably avoid trimming though, just to be in the spirit of things.
