Wow thanks!! I'm pretty much speechless that I was chosen for a winner. I cant say too much though haha, just happy and applying the fruitage of the spirit as always.

This would also at least, partially, eliminate some of the elitist/popularity contest b.s. that is floating around.Katdances said:Congrats to everyone who was nominated, and especially to those who won!
I have a suggestion for next year. Nominations went smoothly in the News area. But, for voting, would it be better to put the polls in the individual forums so that more members who are familiar with the nominees would participate? For instance, I wouldn't have a clue who was the best participant in the 1G forum, so my vote wouldn't really represent the best choice. Perhaps you could divide up the voting for individual titles that way, and then put the polls for Member of the Year and perhaps Best Moderator in the News Forum.
I didn't know anything about it either, until the last day of voting, when I noticed it mentioned in someone's signature in another forum. I usually don't check the administrative forums that often. No worries.Stealth said:Its funny thing becuase i didnt even know when the polling was going on.... And i visit daily....
As I seldom make it to the general areas (and virtually never to the 2G areas) I cannot with any authourity comment on those folks, but within the 1G realm, I think your strengths have been:gavin said:I have to say...Im a bit flabergasted by all this.
I swear to you, It was after the fact that I was notified about this and then I really couldnt make heads or tails of this. "what do you mean MOTY?"....what have I done thats so more special than anyone else on the boards?", "who nominated me in the first place?", "who would vote for me in the second?"....."unpossible!"
Perhaps they knew of your good works -- don't go overboard with that humility thing! 'Tweren't no trick of perspective!gavin said:Well, thanks to those who apparently thought that Ive been doing good things for the forums
There's a saying involving silk purses which your ride and your contributions here embody.gavin said:(personally, I would have voted for Sleepcounter but what do I know? Im a hack with a 1st gen)
You have the balls to try new things and not be ashamed if they fail. This is not a common trait in the mx6/probe community. Most bitch about there not being an aftermarket, you make one. Hell I've never even owned a 1g, but I drop by the 1g Forums just to read some of your stuff. Some how I think sleepcounter puts it much better then I could.gavin said:what have I done thats so more special than anyone else on the boards?

If they would have been in the respective forums i would have known about them...
So i say good idea.
