Personally I hate when people spell my name as Brian instead of Bryan, especially when I emailed them first so they can see how my name is spelled right there.

I mean besides, everyone knows the right way to spell it is Bryan! :P

I changed the spelling back to Brian but it seems like Brain is more popular so I left it. ;)

Voted, good luck everyone.

It's pretty much a open secret to get on the mod fast track is to be named Bryan or live in Ohio :P

LOL - I know :D It wouldn't have been funny otherwise. ;)

I work with a Bryan as well - he was very quick to set me straight on the spelling when he came on board - as I kept getting it wrong every time I e-mailed him. :)

I'm calling my mom to see what she can do about the 'y' ;P Actually - it's just my pseudonym anyway.

Funny story about Ohio - My youngest brother was married there (out in the middle of absolutely nowhere) - I love driving in Ohio because the roads are flat and straight, often uncrowded and usually you can just fly. You have to drive fast because it takes about 4 hours just to get across that giant state! My sister was following me in her car which was red - we were probably doing 90 down the highway - had the road to ourselves basically - and suddenly out of nowhere comes a trooper who pulls her over. Turns out - she was pegged by a plane - who called it down to the trooper. Yet - they didn't tag me :) At least, I thought it was funny. :)

Just a note though... whoever does get MotM will have to take the title and shiny badge from my Death Grip!

On a side note, what happened to being able to remove the notice once we vote?
Honestly, it's kind of annoying.

On the Right hand side there is an X. If you click that it should close.

You'll have to live with it for a few days. It'll go away when the poll closes It was the only way to ensure everyone sees it. We're still playing with the functionality.

Unlike the last bunch of notices, there's no X on this one for me.

ok. Is it possible to make it so that it will give you the option to make it go away after taking some action with whatever the notice is stating(voting in this case)? That would be cool.

Normally you'll have the option to dismiss it, just not on this particular one.

I was able to dismiss it before or after I had voted. Strange! Maybe it has something to do with browser being used? I'm using Chrome and was able to click the red X.

P.S as has already been stated, very good turnout this time, been getting better and better each month! :D

Sorry, but the proper spelling is Brian - and don't be offended!

Haha!!! Thanks all! I was getting worried - rob about overtook me overnight!! I really appreciate whoever took the badge from Buzzard's "death grip" - I was a little scared there.

In all seriousness - thanks very much, and considering the candidacy this month - it really does feel like an accomplishment.

I could do without the signed poster of iWhat as the prize though - I could have sworn I requested the Apple gift card. :D

I didn't really have much choice in the matter, they threatened me with having to clip Schweb's 5" toenails with nothing but my teeth if I didn't hand it back in... what kind of a choice is that? ;)

You got a poster? All I got was the remains of a BBQ they had from the Xmas Party... let me tell you it DID NOT taste nice! :P

Also congratulations Brian/ Bryan/ Bryon ;) , you really are a great person to have on these Forums :)
P.S Good luck next time to the other contenders, i'm sure we would have had 4 members of the month if it was possible, you certainly all deserved to win!

Ha! - Geez, couldn't you have just taken one for the team? That's a job someone will have to get to soon enough - I nominate July's winner - just an early heads up. ;D
