I think it was that way before, that had some problems though because the same person that won the award last time got nominated again. >_<"

It's better this way.

Why only the 5 days to vote ?? Just curious as to the thinking on this decision ??? Is it so the winner has near on a full month as MOTM ?

@Kane Looking at the votes cast already, can only be 1 of 2 people LOL

WE ALL KNOW LMAO

I think we need notifications sent to all members to vote.
The only reason I knew about this is that another member told me.

Three days is the poll length. The thought is to get an MOTM for the better part of the month. We started a bit late into December and don't want to make it a habit.

There's a notification in Community Announcements and Anything Goes. Our staff (who tend to post in great numbers) have also placed a conspicuous note in their signatures.

Frankly, if we send an email to all of our 150,000+ members, it's going to create quite a stir.

My advice is to keep an eye on the Community Announcements forum, that is the point of it, after all.

Why do you need more?

If the President of the United States can be elected on one Tuesday, I'm pretty sure the MoTM voting can be done in a few days. ;)

We post it here, we announce it in announcements, it's also shared on Twitter and Facebook multiple times. Oh, and it's in most mod's signatures. :)

We're also striving to get the poll up on the 1st of every month so that may help as a reminder also.

Our community is made up of all kinds of different people, and all of them have the right to feel comfortable. Others may not think the way that you think, believe what you believe, know what you know, or see what you see. Always be polite and respectful in your interactions with others.

Maybe this needs to be read into a little more thoroughly?

Not feeling very comfortable or welcome based on the responses to my original post of:

I'm not seeing any issue, I think you're reading something into the post that's not there.

What were you expecting the response to be? Both cwa and I explained where things are announced today. Not sure how else we could have done so to make you feel more comfortable?

I read your post quite differently to cwa's post, but hey, I guess it's all in the eyes of the beholder :)
I'll drop it, as I have derailed this thread too much already...

Sorry MOM contenders, I really didn't mean to put a negative slur on this thread, and I hope that all these posts are deleted in order to bring it back to the topic of MOM votes and comments.

I'll leave it with a high note for you all....

There was once a young man who, in his youth, professed his desire to become a great writer.
When asked to define great he said, I want to write stuff that the whole world will read, stuff that people will react to on a truly emotional level, stuff that will make them scream, cry, howl in pain and anger!

He now works for Microsoft, writing error messages. :P

That is a highly skilled job you know. It takes real brains to think up of different names for every error message. And there is a lot of them to do :)

Yeah just like our last national (Australian) elections. The postal votes did decide the outcome.

Thank you to everyone that voted for me. And to the other nominees and members on these Mac-Forums. Sure being accepted and voted ad Member of the Month is nice. But to me the biggest reward is seeing all the thank you posts. Be it thank you for some Apple news or thank you for for helping with my Mac issue. Simply because that means we as a forum community helped someone else learn a little more about their Apple product or learn more about Apple as a company.

It doesn't matter if you want to answer a "help me" post but someone else beat you to it and you don't post. The good intentions were there. And I'm sure if that particular question was not already answered you would have done so. All that matters is someone answered the question and helped the person out. But in saying that, a 2nd opinion from another member is always nice :).

And to me knowing that is the best reward of all.
