    Member of the Month: August 2016

    It's been years, but it's that time again. It's early days. The forum has only just begun its new excellent relaunch, but despite it only being a few weeks later, several users have contributed a lot. Normally, you'd have to have written twenty-five posts in a month to become a candidate, but because it's the first month of a new beginning and a few of you are just a couple of posts shy of that, I've lowered it to twenty. Here's the list...


    (Who Is) Lobo


    Hari


    Juneberry


    pseudohippie


    SethClanclan


    Member of the Month: August 2016


    Remember, candidates, you can't vote for yourselves or you'll be automatically disqualified, and your voters will be allowed to vote for somebody else. However, do vote for another candidate on this list. You won't be able to see other votes until the voting ends in a week, so just go with your gut and vote for your favourite member. Also, I've introduced limits for voters. This is to make sure all votes have validity. You're still able to reach these requirements within the voting period if you don't already.

    • You must be registered for at least two weeks
    • You must have written ten posts
    • You must have posted at least within the last three weeks

    Anybody who meets these is allowed to vote. Remember that this is only for posts this month—not your favourite of these candidates for all time. The thread will be closed for discussion until the voting period ends and the winner is announced.

    The winner will receive an award (I'm not sure what form that will be in at the time of writing), 2500 wong and a golden username for a month. If you win you won't be eligible as a candidate for another six months. For those who missed the chance, try to post at least once a day for surefire candidate eligibility next month.

    Good luck, outlaws.

    Edit: Since last time we did a MotM it was different forum software, I'm not wholly familiar with polls here, and there's a bug so you'll need to hold off on voting until sometime tomorrow as it won't allow you to. Sorry about that. It'll give you more time to carefully decide though!

    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    Just an update to everybody. The poll bug has been fixed and you're free to vote for a candidate above until the 31st. Thanks to Hari for testing it for me. He couldn't decide who to vote for out of two candidates, so I helped him out with an online game of Russian roulette.

    I died.

    Now it's officially the 1st of September in the UK, and if you haven't seen already, Hari is Member of the Month for August, by quite a margin too! You deserved it Hari, so congratulations on becoming the first Member of the Month in four years! I've changed your user title/colour and given you 2500W. I'll add some kind of award when I can (so much to do lately), but let's all say thanks to Hari for breathing so much life into this community in its new first month of many!

    Why are you giving him a paperclip? I feel like giving him a caster shell would make more sense considering where we are...But I guess he could use it to pull a MacGyver or something in the future.

    Also belated good job on not dying in Russian Roulette, Hari! If you had, it might've been hard to accept your reward!

    Hopefully two somebodies would- namely you and Hari.
    Also I think I'll stick to giving hugs as prizes. And in general.

    Do me eyes decieve me?! Could it be, a golden paperclip just for this ol' space dog? *bites into it...* It's real, it's really real!

    Thank you so much for your votes, guys. This was a lovely surprise. We've all done a fantastic job of bringing the Nexus back up off the ground. I know Mantis especially has put a tremendous amount of work in over the past few weeks-- but what's a ship without it's crew, eh? I have to say, my vote was a difficult one indeed. Everyone has done a great job, but in my mind it was between June and Lobo, who have contributed some particularly excellent quality posts! Well done you two, I'd share the title with you if I could.

    Here's to another great month at the Nexus!

    I edited out what I wasn't responding to, so don't mind the random ellipses that magically appeared in the quote okay? It's to show my edits basically. I think. I forget why but I know I was taught to do that in school. *coughs*

    It's true, everyone is working really hard, I've found. Voting for people in this kind of scenario is generally really hard, and it frustrates me there's only so much I can do as is for this wonderful place. But that's why hard work should be acknowledged, right? And you've done quite a bit!

    And yes- to another month and then some! Cheers!

    Totally agreed. For all the other candidates, good luck in September's polls. I think there'll be a nice distribution of votes and you'll all have a fair chance. To those who didn't make the candidate list, keep posting! It will be twenty-five as the minimum for September. Shouldn't be too hard with the activity we're reaching.

    That means a couple a day should lead to everyone fitting it- which means basically everyone just needs to be a Crusader! Which is fun anyway! Question though, cause I forget- are there any restrictions (such as the ones for Nexus Crusader) as to where posts that count are made?
