how about we have a member of the month award? or would it be too stupid?
I don't know much about the forum yet . . but for those who do know, yeah GREAT IDEA !! ;D
Its a cool idea.
What would be the reward? A showcase of their art? Everyone makes them something?
How would we decide who is the Gimper of the month?
I think we should!
I say the reward would be a gift.
Maybe the gimper of the month could be the person who gets the most thanks that month, that would show that they were active as well as helpful. Just an idea though.
I say we figure it out, it's a cool idea
That's a great idea, lymeaid. Thanks in a month.
Now who would make the gift? all of us?
We should have a special sig that only he/she gets to wear during the month. Maybe one based off of the new Gimper.net logo we'll be getting soon
or we could like nominate a few people who have been helpful?
many ways we can choose...
I think I agree with Illyz. We should have maybe a sig or an avy that the winner would have for a month. Maybe they could add a little to it to and then pass it on to the next person and they, in turn, add their bit of flare and so on and so on. I've done this in our neighborhood before with bbq competitions and its great to see what people come up with!
I like it. The sig would have to start out plain so there's plenty of room for people to add stuff.
Ya I agree. Blue ribbon or something haha ;D
im liking this.
we should finalise the ideas
For sure. Great idea lastonestanding!
We can have a motm but we can't have a sotw.
I don't think this should be added.
Or it could be, maybe because it isnt as much GFX related compared to a sotw comp.
But idk, organization, tallying etcetc.
Might cause some chaos
Well there wouldn't be much chaos as the member of the month would just be decided on who got the most thanks in the previous month. I think it would be good, because then it would promote people helping out others.
Mostly, a mod would need to be on top of it each month.
sig of the week i think..
personally i dont really care for this kind of thing... probably cuz i never get it xP
Lol, its not too hard to get. Mostly we just think it would be fun.
I think I suggested this but im not sure anyway Yes it would be cool we could use some special vector-ish trophy saying the members name and the month the member is member of the month.
BTW For those who think that we dont have enought people. WE ONLY NEED 12 MEMBERS
I think it's a great idea! Especially the signature. Though, i don't think it should be the amount of thanks received, the community should vote on it. (I hate to say it, but some people may spam new accounts to thank themselves :'( )
Nice suggestion, GimpKnowHow, however, any option, whether it be vote or by thanks, people can spam accounts to vote or thank themselves. So if this idea were to be implemented, there might need to be rules, like, MOTM has to at least be a junior member and anyone caught spamming accounts would be forever disqualified from MOTM, etc.
My only thing with voting, is that it would be a popularity vote. I think that thanks is a good idea, because then it promotes members to be more actively helping one another, rather than trying to be as well known as possible to have votes.
Anyway, that's my 2 cents.
I like the idea. Perhaps instead of the most thanks received, it would be the highest average of a person's given AND received thanks. It's just as good to thank people, if not more important than being thanked.
then people would span and thank every post
personally i think that gkh's idea is he best
