I think it was meant to be a 'New Forumpudlian who we most feel like we can't remember a time when they weren't here be as they've integrated themself into the community so completely' award. But that wasn't very catchy, and a bit of a mouthful... so we had to call it 'Most Prolific New Member' instead, which I admit is not a very good title. Any suggestions on how to improve it?

I like the idea of a newbie award so that the awards don't become an 'old member fest'. A renaming would be good. There is probably a Beatley phrase about newbies/beginning that could work. I'll give it some thought. Let me know if you have any rebranding ideas for the newbie award.

Or just call it the New Member award.

What's the USP of the Newbie award? Everyone who joins the forum is as valuable as anyone else, highlighting one over another for just being here is something I would never be in favour of.

But yeah, since most new members posts come from the game threads, the birthday thread (wishing everybody happy birthday), and other not very beatley threads, prolific is an unfair policy.

A most helpful award could be used in a non-beatles way, like, who had the best advice for stuff, solving forum problems, answering life questions, resolving disagreements, etc...

I forget if we already have a Most Helpful Award though.

How about "Love Me New", since Love Me Do was their first single.

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

How about we don't have an award for just being new? My position is clear, as I seem to have started this conversation.

I really object to the idea of an award for being our favourite new member of the year. I won't vote for it. How am I meant to decide which among the beautiful people who've become Forumpudlians this year is supposedly the best when they have all been (largely) brilliant?

It's been discussed a number of times here and elsewhere on the forum, and the consensus is always to stay away from anything that is driven by highlighting popularity. The forum works best when everyone is seen as being as valuable as everyone else regardless of how much they post, how often, when they joined, how old they are etc. Voting on who is the best newbie, if that's the premise of this award, is simply voting for who you like the best from who is new and, therefore, something I will never agree to.

By that logic, we shouldn't have any awards.

Awards for funniest, most helpful, likely to keep a thread on track etc do so for specific reasons not just you're new and I like you.

I’ve got an Idea for an award. We should make one for the person who seems to always be online 24/7. Similar to “the arts and crafts rat” going to the kid who is always hanging out in arts and crafts.

Hardcore Beatles Bibler covers that.

I'll put a newbie award to a poll and delay the voting for a day. Even if a newbie award gets more yes votes, it will be renamed and like all options, it can be skipped over since you don't have to vote for any option you don't wish to.

Darn! I can't get my vote to register. The little wheel just spins and spins and doesn't complete the action. Can my vote please be added to the no vote?

Oops! Just got the poll to take my vote, @Starr Shine?, but I voted Yes by mistake! paul-mccartney

Here's a screenshot showing the mistaken vote:

You can see the black italics to show which way I voted. Could you please switch my vote to No when you look at the results.

Ta, very much.
