I think we should start having a member of the month. They could be voted on by the community, and be showcased on the front page of the site.

I'd like to nominate F-16_Fighting_Falcons personally.

I would nominate Wnope, though Roy and JustCallMeTarzan are potential nominees.

Is it against the "rules" if I nominate myself?

But in all seriousness, most likely Roy_Latham. He is a very skilled debater, and from my perspective, possibly the best on this website.

FYI, we do have the annual DDO awards (I think done in either Nov or Dec). I tired MotM on another site before, and its participation did start to dwindle, because it happened too often. Maybe member of the quarter (every 3 months) or something. Something not so often that it gets boring.

I was wondering about that.

I agree though, monthly awards would happen too often. 3 months is a better idea.
