Member of the Month
« on: June 30, 2018, 07:40:54 PM »
I was thinking about this for a while, and I think that showcasing a new member each month might be a good addition to this forum/twitter. It could be someone who the Admins and mods think really made a difference here. Any thoughts?

That's a cool idea
Would it be a poll from the members to choose?

I would nominate Chipster-roo and Acacia along with Rosie, Carnation, etc.  :silverweed I'm honestly not here as much as I would like too and they are and benefit the warren extremely and that's why I believe they are more worthy of such a nomination. : )

Thanks Acacia, Vesper :)

I like this idea.

I suppose maybe there should be a rule that the same person can't be "member of the month" two months in a row, or something like that?

That's a good idea, a subject for voting. Although I also suggest that it be better every 4 months.
Although I do not care who wins, because I appreciate each one of the forum, it sounds more like a fun idea to hang out =)     :tassel :pipkin :pipkin2 :heather

I love Watership Down!

Maybe it could be based on a theme each month such as most companionate, artistic, friendly, etc.

Rosie,

The staff and I have decided that we will not be doing member awards in any shape or form.  There are a few reasons why we will not do this on FHC, even if other boards/forums do so:

1.) We are too small a community.  We do not have enough active members to make this really worthwhile.

2.) People have a tendency to work for awards to win them, and then go back to their normal selves once they do.  This would be akin to me working towards a Watership Down fanart award when everyone here knows I don't draw rabbits, win the award because I work my butt off to do so, and then never draw another rabbit again.  That would be very unfair to those who actually are good at drawing rabbits and do that all the time!

3.) People turn into sourpusses when they lose/don't understand why they weren't picked despite being qualified.  People hate to lose and there's going to be hurt feelings no matter how much people may think "members here aren't like that!"

4.) Along the same lines, people tend to choose friends to win awards.  We don't need that clique stuff here.


Just so its known, this was not a solo decision by me; this received four "no" votes from active staff here on FHC, which constitutes a majority of the staff.
