Default Member of the Month/Outstanding New Member Awards?

This is a silly little idea that popped into my head and wouldn't go away.

WI has so many great members; how about having a Member of the Month to shine the spotlight on those who've been particularly exceptional in some way? I've seen other forums do this. They select the member (usually through admin decisions,) have a featured interview with that member to learn a little more about them, and in some cases they get a little badge for the month, or their post counter icons change to something special. Since it's WI, one fun thing might be to add a MSI and MSF (Member Specific Item and Member Specific Food - their favorites/essentials.)

Another idea might be to have an Outstanding New Member award - similar thing, but focusing on members who've joined within the last X number of months. Given all the threads I've seen about not discriminating based on post count/spinnies/rep boxes, it might be a nice way to recognize those on WI who are just starting out but have shown they have a lot to offer.

I'd like to hear your thoughts and feedback - do you like the ideas? Do you think they would fit well in WI? Thanks.

That's a great idea, Passerine!

It's been suggested before, and admins said that these types of contests weren't allowed. People can get hurt if they're not chosen, so I think it's just best for a site this big to not have these contests. As much as I'd love that feature, I wouldn't want others to feel bad for not being chosen.

Thanks for explaining the reasoning behind the decision - it makes sense.

I do wish that there was a way to acknowledge those who go above and beyond the call of duty on here to help out. Based on what Dogluver said though, this might not be coming any time soon. Until then, we could give rep and write a nice PM to those people who we really admire on here.

I totally AGREE! There is nothing like a nice private message to let someone know you appreciate them! And if you want to go public, then when you see a thread you think is really great, leave a post on it thanking the person who started it!!! When I see great threads, I always acknowledge the originator in my post! REPS are a good way to say thanks too.

Default Re: Member of the Month/Outstanding New Member Awards?

I think that's a wonderful idea, but we have SO many amazing members here on WI, it'd be hard to choose only one per MONTH, i, personally, think member of the WEEK would be better.

That really is a wonderful idea!

The only problem is, that we have so many members, that have done so many different things to make themselves eligible to be the member of the month, or something like that.

As much as I agree that it would be nice to have this feature I can also see why it could be a problem, so I guess the best thing to remember is to click on the repetition thumbs up when we want to show our appreciation for that member.

Its a nice idea but there are way too many members. The staff would probably take more than a month to choose one person.
