    Lightbulb Post of the Month Award

    SimpleSi said something in the following thread :

    Buy Vista Ultimate & get a 1TB Hard Drive FREE

    about a post deserving of winning Post of the Month award.

    I think that is a really good idea. Not sure of how we'd work it, but it would be great to do. No real prize needed, but the winner could carry a special logo/avatar/edu-banner for the rest of the month.

    an admin or mod could be chosen to judge each month, no voting as it would get complicated. but a simple thread where people post/quote or link to things they liked...?

    does that sound as good now as it did when i read it out loud...

    ... answers on a postcard.

    How about a special banner posted in the message like what they do over at Money Saving Expert?

    well, to be fair, i think that as it's the inaugural month, 2 should win. The original post (it was great!), and SimpleSi for coming up with the idea.

    Now, don't be arrogant!

    I could have included myself in the list of winners, but technically it wasn't my idea, i'm just promoting it and bringing it to fruition. Though, most bright ideas are probably lost like that to whoever has the funds / contacts to make things happen.

    Anyway, NO. Just two winners for January, and from then on 1 per month.

    I'll be happy with some thanks. Unless they could call it the "VIKPAW Post of the Month Award" (VIKPAWPOM/VIKPAWPOTM)

    Actually, what do you think of making the winner's tag eduStar?

    NO! No segregation, we are all equals. Well, we are the "1"s and women are the "0"s. Each is meaningless without the other.

    Question

    What does everyone else think?
    Like the idea of an award for poster of the month?

    Hate to be a buzzkill but don't really see the point and think there's plenty of posts on here each month worthy of such an acolade and with each mod/admin having their own particular interests it may be a bit unpredictable when it comes to judging.

    Recognition is a good idea though.
