Looks like a rather slow month. I'll throw bryphotoguy, lifeisabeach, and dtravis into the mix :D

Thanks Kash but I can't be in the running as I am now a Mod. Appreciate the Nomination though!

I feel Discerptor has been rather helpful and generally nice this month. So that person gets my vote.

And I would have nominated you too Kash. But the rules to say beggers (for nominations) can get banned. And I so don't want that to happen to you.

I know it seems like tokenism but....

hasn't eric been MOTM yet, he's got some serious pips to his name?

eric
08-03-2008, 03:22 PM
yeah, i was, i believe within a year ago, so i'm sure i'm not eligable.

Kash

Actually, it looks like eligibility requirements are no longer applicable. We used to get a list of the past year's winners, and I've seen recent winners making the vote just a few months after winning.

In place of travis, I'll throw my support behind eric :D

Ya, I wondered about that. Have the rules changed mods?

I don't remember when they changed but it's been quite a while now that the rules changed. Still though Mods can not be nominated nor nominate either, so all I can do now is vote and try to get more users nominating! :D

Just to be clear, there used to be a policy that a former MOTM could not be nominated in a 12 month period, but that rule is no longer enforced.
