    How about a featured member that gets honored ever month like an employee of the month award. Members could vote on their choice member but make it to where they couldn't vote for the same person twice in a row. I don't know I just think it would be neat to honor a good member on the home page once a month!

    Good idea, but too many members to make an accurate poll.

    It's weird that you mention this because I was just thinking yesterday about doing something similar. I think it's a cool idea but that's just my opinion.

    Ok you could narrow down the qualifications like the it has to be member who have been here and been active for 1 or 2 years so new members or part time members who come and go would not qualify

    Sounds like a lot of trouble over a popularity contest.

    Interesting. Good idea. I think lower it to maybe 6 months to a year though. I don't think there are any active users right now who have been here for 1 or 2 years.

    Meh. That would probably create jealousy.

    I agree - quality over quantity. We might just end up with a bunch hastily posted quantity.

    My 2 cents :)

    It'd be easier for Staff to do a vote on who they believe has been the most active & has had the most interesting posts throughout the month, could be a variety of different things from funny to interesting to best news, etc.

    Then do a narrowing down of how many times the person was mentioned by members of staff & finally do a vote on the remaining few left over. Of course make it only 1 or 2 members per staff, that way you don't have 50 names being dropped. The same could be done for staff, a vote is cast by perhaps the Zeus & Outlaw as the 2 founding members of the forum on who they think has contributed the most out of their staff & then talk between themselves over who they feel is the most agreed upon.

    That's my idea on this & probably an easier solution seen as there's less staff than members.

    One problem might be almost all staff are frequent contributors of content and material.

    You are right, why not have different ways of judging the staff versus judging the general forum users?

    That might get confusing. I'd be thinking of folks posting to give 'awards' to members that they think do an outstanding job posting content for recipients of awards/trophies such as Gore Contributor, Extreme Contributor, etc.

    There's a lot of variables to take into account when it comes to things like this. I think we need @Zeus & @Outlaw to give their opinions on this, who knows perhaps they would have an idea of how this can work?

    I understand and appreciate your initiative on trying to give peeps something to strive for, but in the end, I agree that it could likely cause tension in the end. (i.e. so-and-so brown-nosed, she just got it cuz she has tits, he's so far up staff's ass that when they fart, it's his breath, etc.)
