Tilted Monthly Awards - Really This Time!

Anybody remember this thread?

http://www.tfproject.org/tfp/showthread.php?t=130115

We're sorry for the long delay in getting this boat in the water. But, you know, it called for us to stop smoking pot and watching '70s porn in the breakroom, and dammit, it's really hard to pull yourself away from that scene sometimes. Some of you may understand.

But anyway, we are ready to officially accept nominations. And we would like to start from scratch with private nominations.

Here are the categories:

Quote:
  • Tilted Host/Hostess - Given for excellence in welcoming new members to the community.
  • Tilted Presenter - Given for excellence in creating interesting and original content.
  • Tilted Mentor - Given for excellence in providing credible advice for those in need.
  • Tilted Natural - Given for excellence in becoming a valuable member of the community in such a short time.
  • Tilted Samaritan - Given for excellence in helping the moderators keep the board clean.
  • Employee of the Month - Given for excellence in moderating the boards.
You may place your votes by PM'ing me directly with your nominations.
Do not vote on this thread!!
I have cleared my mailbox for this very purpose!

Nominations on the original thread will not be counted, so be sure to vote again even if you already placed your votes there.


If you have any questions about how this is going to work, feel free to message me or any of the other mods, or you may post your question on this thread.

Deadline for nominations will be Friday, June 27th.

Remember! Vote early, vote often! just kidding...just vote.

I use the TFP Green as well.

jorgelito - try changing your scheme in the lower left hand corner and you can see the colored text very clearly. I'd hate to make it red or something. That would just be obnoxious...

Well voting has started, cough 'em up.

Maybe there's nothing extraordinarily significant about the distinctions. They seem pretty cut and dry. Maybe you're attaching a significance to them that offends you in some way, but I think you're pushing the drama quotient for no reason.

It may be too early to ask this question, but when next month rolls around...

...are previous winners eligible to win?
...or eligible to win in a separate category?
...if not, for how many months are you ineligible, or can you only win once in your lifetime?

Since the awards are, conceivably, to be doled out monthly the elevation isn't so great. For instance, there's very little chance I'm going to win one of these, but I don't feel anyone is elevated above me in the least. I don't really get the grief.

And Redlemon, I'm not sure how to answer those questions, yet, lol. I'll get back with you soon.

Derwood, I think it goes without saying that you won't win an award if you don't do something noticeably beneficial to the board. The tradeoff is that if you DO do something beneficial to the board, you also become popular. So to call this a popularity contest is missing the point. It is a "contest" between people who have become popular for being good for the board.
