Who would be interested in having 'Member of the Month' polls? Upon winning this title, you would -most likely- receive a stamp as well as recognition on a widget in the right hand side of the forum (username and avatar!). 

I would set a maximum of 10 participants per month, and these open slots would run in a first-come first-serve fashion. The previous month's winner would not be able to participate in the next month's poll.

I'm stuck on whether or not this poll's signup should be done through "personal signup" or through nomination. I feel like nominations would be a lot of fun, competitive, and beneficial as a community. It would also urge users to become more active, helpful, and friendly in order to have a higher chance of being nominated. It would add more of a surprise and luck factor into it, too. However, there would be obvious cons to this method of signup.

What do you guys think? Feel free to post your thoughts and opinions in a comment below, and vote in the poll above!  Cheer

Extra question: if we do end up doing this through nominations, shall it be publicly on a forum post, or through PM to me?

Publicly would allow users to see who has already been nominated in the comments (if I haven't updated the entries yet) and wouldn't spam my inbox as much, especially if there are multiple members PM'ing me the same person to nominate. But PM'ed nominations would obviously be private and a *little* more of a surprise.

I would think PMs to be more of a surprise, but I dunno. :oc

I think through PM would be good because then it's annonymous, and while I knooooow we're all kind of older/more mature on this site and it's just a fun lil MOTM thing, there'd be less risk of feelings being hurt. "WHAA, ____ is a good friend of mine and didn't nominate me! :\ "

Also, everyone could PM me as well in case Kemi isnt around. That way you have a back-up plan, me B) Cause I can edit any post.

I think it would be a good idea to be more anonymous, but what about the people who are nominated and don't want to be? Seems weird since it's a tiny game and all but some people are like that.

The nominee could maybe post on the MOTM topic saying thanks but no thanks, or an admin could PM the nominee asking if they'd be okay with being nominated? The 2nd could take a lot of time tho, especially if someone doesn't look at their PMs or is away. When the time comes for the voting to begin, we can't really wait tooooo long for a response because then the voting wouldn't be too well synced up with the month.

Well at that point we might as well do self sign up instead of nominations. Confuzzled
