    This award will go to the member the community feels has the most positive effect in the homework forums. This is a popular vote. 1st and 2nd place are awarded. All nominations are rewards in and of themselves. Active Mentors and past winners are not eligible. Comments and write-ins are welcome.

    Sounds fair, just please don't involve the Electoral college, that system seems to have some bugs that need worked out. :cool:

    :sorry: Tell the librarian it was my fault, I'll think of a good excuse before she/he catches up to me.

    We used to be eligible, but there was a big scandal a few years back where we kept deleting each other out of the polls to try to win, so Greg just gave up and decided we weren't eligible to be listed... :biggrin:

    I became a mentor just to be able to nominate myself - and they tell me this after I agree!

    There is always the Insights backdoor ;).
    If time as mentor doesn't count, can you get nominated as newcomer if you leave the staff?

    "You" meant Orodruin, he became mentor too fast for the 2014 newcomer award.

    Do we have an overview over past winners by the way?

    I think it is fairly obvious that time as a mentor should be discounted ... and I hereby announce my retirement as a mentor to take effect one day before next year's nominations. :-p

    Do not be so sure. I am certain several Newcomers have 8000+ posts in their first year ...

    Well, if the time doesn't count, everything you posted while being mentor also doesn't count.
    Mentors are not eligible :D
