    Default MOTM Nominations being accepted for September 2011

    Please send in your nomination(s) for our OrchidTalk Member of the Month for September 2011.

    I hope you will express your gratitude for the members you feel make this place so special by nominating the members you feel deserving of this award.

    The way this will work: Each month, members are encouraged to nominate members and supply reasons why a certain member should be selected MOTM. The admins will review all nominations and select a monthly winner. After selection, the winner will be sent a link to complete an interview to share with the community. Any active member of the community can be nominated, but can only be selected one time for member of the month in any given year.

    We will feature the MOTM on our home page along with a link to his/her interview. All MOTM winners will be included in an archive page that will be updated each month. Each interview will be posted in a new thread in the Community Interviews section of the forum for response/ discussion/ congratulations by our members.

    After all MOTM have been selected for the current year, a Member of the Year will be selected by vote of the current active members. The Member of the Year will receive a special OrchidTalk gift and special recognition for her/his participation in this community.

    Basic Rules and Conditions for Nominating a Member:

    1. Member must be currently active in the community.
    (IE - member should participate often in the discussions, post new threads, login regularly, etc...)

    2. When nominating a member, you must give a reason you believe that member should receive the award.
    (IE: Member X should win this award because she posts such helpful responses to newbie questions. ~~ or ~~ Member Y should win because he shares such unique orchids and photos. Etc...)

    3. Members can be nominated anytime throughout the year, but can only be selected once during a current calendar year. After becoming MOTM for calendar year 2011, that member should not be nominated again until the next calendar year.


    4. All nominations should be Private Messaged to Brutal_Dreamer. Use
    MOTM Nomination
    as the title of your PM. This will allow me to sort all nomination private messages from all the other private messages I get on a daily basis.


    5. Nominations are open for the next month starting today and a winner will be selected by the third day of the month.


    6. No other rules.


    So, send in the nominations by Private Message to Brutal_Dreamer and lets get a MOTM selected for September 2011.

    PS - If you would like to sponsor or even co-sponsor an award/gift for the winner(s) of this contest, please contact me. Having a sponsor will improve the award given to the winner(s) of this community award.

    Cheers,
    BD

    Hey Bruce - do you think you could post a list of the past MOTMs - even just the last year or so - so we could all check quickly to make sure we haven't re-nominated someone who just got it recently?
