Ditto. Now we know how those sports Hall of Fame voters feel when they choose new members each year.

Haha. I thought maybe it was some kind of game or challenge/brain-teaser.

That would have been pretty sweet. This forum needs a good square chicken invasion.

Not voting for yourself? You wouldn't make a good politician Kane. ;D


I'm also curious as to now the nominations were made. ^-^"

Sorry, state secrets and all that. You'll have to check Wikileaks to find out. :)

And good luck to our contestants. It's really hard to pick the winner from among you since you're all great members.

I would have nominated McYukon if I had a say in it though!

I think it's better than the old ways of the 2 rounds of voting. 1 for the people to pick the nominees then picking out of the nominees for a winner. With one round of voting people are more likely to vote.

And thank you for nominating me for this honour.

I'm also glad to see the MOTM (Member of the Month) returning. It's been a while...and I think that it adds some "fun & variety" to the Mac-Forums experience.

Thanks for the nomination...Good luck to everyone!:)

I remember the last time that happened, before I was a mod. There were like a million votes casted for one person, and a few million for others. One hour, votes would disappear, then the next hour, votes would reappear.

Thanks everyone for the congrats!:)

Being selected Mac-Forums Member of the Month is a great honor...especially knowing the knowledge base & years of experience other members possess...as well as knowing that there are many many other members who are just as deserving.

I take my computing relatively seriously;)...or at least as seriously as a non-computer industry person can...but at the same time I try to be as humorous as possible when the situation presents itself!:) I enjoy helping folks with their Macintosh computing issues...and interacting with other Mac-Forums members via the threads, PM's, and the Sunday evening IRC (Internet Relay Chat) "get-together's".

Believe it or not...I've learned quite a bit as a member of Mac-Forums...and when folks ask questions about Mac's from 5, 10, 15, or 20 years ago...it helps me to refresh my memory of issues that were present way back when! It's also really awesome to get to know Mac-Forums members from all over the world!:)

Thanks again for honoring me as Mac-Forum's Member of the Month.

Actually, I think that in the spirit of recent political campaigns the other candidates should demand a recount and/or file a lawsuit. :)

Nick could then counter sue and if we worked it right we could all get rich off the tabloid journalism rights.

Nah it's like all award nights (Academy awards, MTV, AFI, etc). You know who's going to win before the show even starts. Rigged maybe. So I don't care who win really.

The main point was 4 people were recognised for their good contributions they have made to this place. And to me that's the important thing.

That's not how this is supposed to work. If you go getting all fair-minded and reasonable on us how are we supposed to turn this into a tabloid freeforall? ;)

It doesn't matter how fair the contest was, you're supposed to sue anyway.

I agree. If the Mods here are going to choose the nominees each month. Can they actually please choose them. The MotM will never work if there is no one to vote for.
