If this is the way you would like to express your discontent with the changes to the poll, you are free to do so. I’m disappointed that that it’s come to this, but you can do whatever you want to do.

So @Little Piggy Dragonguy what’s our next step? Should we start brainstorming descriptions for poll categories and new names for “most likely to post things that make you go hmmm?” Would something along the lines of “Most Insightful Poster” be good, or is that equally vague (though less wordy)?

I’m excited to start the process of implementing changes ahdn_george_08

Edit: haha i did a fiddy

I think we could come up with a Beatle pun for the “most likely to post things that make you go hmmm?”

.

I’m sure the Beatles did something wacky to warrant such a thing. Maybe like “Intermission poster” based off the scene in help! Any other ideas?

“Intermission Poster” seems a big vague, but I like the direction you’re going in. Maybe there’s something in Think For Yourself ?

Interesting results. Long live the awards – however they are designed. They are meant to be fun awards for the people by the people.

And well done @Little Piggy Dragonguy on the work you put into this. Deserves credit and acknowledgement.

I was having a think about this. For the new members’ award something like ‘The Rising Starr Award’ sounds cute and can encompass a lot of things quantity of users’ posts, quality blah blah. Make it open to users who have joined on or since the 1st of December 2020. 

 

‘Most Likely…hmm” needs to be given a description as to what it means; is it thought-provoking? Confusing? That needs to be established before it can be renamed.

I like your suggestion of “The Rising Starr Award” @AppleScruffJunior. It’s a nice homage to the person that has brought so much whimsy to the forum.

 

I always wish there was a way to formally acknowledge the member that dominates the forum each year. There always seems to be that one member who either thanks/responds to every post they read. I guess you can tell who they are by the post count list, but it would be nice to give them a little forum hug. I’m sure (for new members) in particular that those small recognitions that someone read their post provide an incentive to keep going. I could make a list of those generous people over the years, but I think you already know who you are.

I’ve never understood the fascination over ‘thanks’ but then I’m not on social media which is plagued by liking posts. As for responding, shouldn’t it be quality over quantity (says the person who’s submitted the most posts)? God help the forum if it was filled with folk writing “thanks, great post” after every one they read. Being a mod, I’d probably delete each and every one. And then be sacked.

I agree mmm, it’s an impossible quality to acknowledge in an award format. But it does exist and has meaning…

I’d hope that every poster (old or new, the expert who knows almost everything to the novice who doesn’t know which one is John) feels welcomed, valued and appreciated (excluding the spammers, they can go and annoy other people). If they don’t then the forum is doing something wrong. I agree that it should be displayed more often but that’s not really possible.

I like the Rising Starr Award too. Maybe for the hmmm one we can make a list of every possible thing that award could mean and then give each one a title.

^ That might be a bit much. If we could poll, we’d see what people consider it to be but alas a-hard-days-night-paul-7
