    I want to nominate Vansmith.

    He's a great asset to the community, and he's quite the prolific contributor.

    I guess I'll start the ball rolling.

    I would like to nominate louishen. Everytime I check the forums (s)he has already contributed to a significant number of new threads with insightful and helpful advice.

    As an aside and technical note, the rules say "You CAN nominate them just because you like them." I assume that is meant to say CAN'T.

    EDIT: Derek McNelly beat me to it. Also, thanks .

    Thanks Vansmith, Derek McNelly beat me to your nomination, so I second it

    Vansmith has been very knowledgeable and helpful

    As for my nomination, I am really flattered, but already have a MOTM from last September, so unless we don't get any other nominations, I would like to see other members have a chance

    but thanks loads anyway

    Nonetheless, you always seem to be everywhere with good advice. Tip of the hat too you.

    I think it's OK to nominate someone just because you like them - what's important is that if that's the case, you say "I nominate so-and-so, just because I like him".

    I want to throw in another bid for vansmith. Funny thing is, I clicked on this thread with the purpose of nominating him, and found that others were already on the vansmith bandwagon. He must be doing things right.

    Somehow you wound up member of the month, so you must've been something similar to helpful.

    Thank you for the nod.

    Well, since louishen has respectfully declined my nomination, I would like to nominate chscag for the same reasons I nominated louishen.
