Remember folks, we need a reason why you're nominating the person, in addition to just their name. It can be as simple as "MemberX is very helpful on the forums, often taking on the tough questions".

Good luck all, and for all forum members here new and old, when the voting starts cast your vote for your favourite and make this one the largest turn out yet :)

Really? Odd, I never had to do it before...

I'd like to nominate them because they were the last ones to leave me rep ;P But seriously, they're really helpful members of this community and deserve recognition for it. :D

Can you please explain how this would work? As I think I've once before been hit by this rule. And didn't exactly see how it applied to me.

******************************

And I'm going to nominate JohnTheMacGeek because last month he's made quite a few informative posts. I've learnt a thing or two I'll say.

Let's just say there's a certain amount of "magic" involved in the process (see the rule two down from the one you cited).

Way... way too many specs to list.
I'd also like to thank you for the nomination, and I'd personally nominate Skahead and louishen, because they're both always helpful, but that's already been done for me :)
