Ah, but he has! :)

Either way, it's OK to nominate past MOTMs.

it's too bad we don't have more non-motm participation in these threads. so far, louishen is the only non-motm (past or present) to even post here (this time).

I couldn't agree more, hence the link in my signature. I think we (collectively, as a forum) need to do a better job of promoting the MOTM program.

OK then, this call goes out to all forum members old and new.

Join the democracy that is the monthly macforums member of the month poll. Even if you do not feel able to recommend a nominee, whether you have 2 posts or 2000, don't forget to cast your vote when the election thread arrives.

Its good fun, makes for a better election and nobody will come to your neighbourhood to shake hands and kiss babies.

Bumper stickers optional
