Out of the 100,000 members, i'm sure there are at least 25% of those that are accidental duplicate accounts, people who log on maybe once a month for a few minutes, people who signed up and forgot about it (I have a TON of accounts on other websites that I'm sure I've forgotten about) and people who have simply moved on to other things and no longer visit WI at all. So obviously those people wouldn't be chosen for Member of the day.

Kinda like people getting chosen to be Mods, Admins, or Forum Protectors, it's a status that is chosen based on helpfulness, not writing bad things or ever getting banned, and displaying all-around responsibility and good character. While everyone has the POTENTIAL of getting chosen based on their character, it would be crazy to expect that EVERYONE gets chosen.

I think it's an excellent idea that would encourage members to be more aware of what they write and treat others in the forums.

That's a good point. Plus one person's opinion of "The Best" would be different than someone else's version. On the other hand if you choose someone at random from ALL the members, you might be choosing someone who hasnt' posted since last summer, or someone who has been banned alot.
So I think something in the middle might work. Like say anyone who meets a certain criteria is eligible to be chosen, and out of those people someone at random is picked. And it could run sorta like who they do the daily chat thread. Like every day a different mod or admin picks a thread and creates it. Every day a different mod or admin picks a member for the next day's Member of the Day. It doesnt' really have to be that hard.
The criteria could be like:
Not being banned in the last 90 days
Today have posted at least 5 non-fluff threads
Made at least one post or thread that was helpful
Didn't have any of their posts or threads removed for innapropritate content in the last 7 days

And someone who posted or did something really, really extraordinary would maybe be automatically chosen, like say someone got a trophy in Goobers Lab and posted a step by step on how they got it, and then a bunch of members tried it and it worked. Or they posted a link to another website that tells you what rare items Arte is going to have every day over the next week. Or they make a suggetion on how WI can be improved and the idea is used. Over the top things like that would maybe have that person chosen instead of just being random.
Wow. I agree. Rep.

Good Idea, but maybe member of the Week. Because then they'd be able to tally them up by Wednesday, and we could have a MOTM. Because of time. They couldn't look at the person with the most in one day.

GREAT IDEA!
