You can tell what a boring month this has been for PEEL if this thread is getting spammy on page 3 after two days.

I also noticed I didn't get as many nominations this month. While I feel minorly saddened, at the same time I can't blame you. I was much more in the zone in June and July than I was in August. Whoever wins this month, congratulations in advance.

Actually, it's probably just the "new-poster-smell" wearing off. New people who storm in and impress everyone have a very narrow window to win one of these things. If they don't, then it's back to obscurity with them! Anybody remember Lionel Hutz Esq.?

Oh, crap. Very few votes this time around. Hmmm...

  • Evan?
  • ...and Coop. What the hell, I say.

...where's Davie? I didn't even get my sympathy vote this month... Pikka must also feel terrible. Or maybe I'm just pathetic.

Sorry to disappoint Spicey and MRMF, but I think I'll graciously bow out of this PotM, as well as every other one for the immediate future.  IMO, PotM just aren't worth it anymore.  It's not based on posting, or quality, or anything really important.  So I'm taking myself out of competition.  The two of you that voted for me can choose someone else.

It did, back in the day!  You youngin's weren't around when PotM meant something.  We debated for days on who should win, and those PEELers that lost were banned.  You never had any of that tradition. Daggnabbit!

It started to lose meaning in October '02 when Ninaka won it. It was the first time someone had won based on a campaign over the preceding months instead of on the basis of that month's posting. I can't really complain, because I was one of the people telling everyone to vote for her, but that's how it was. Kind of like the time I nominated Marc for the first time out of the blue and he won it, despite not having posted at all in the preceding month.

Come to think of it, I think I ruined POTM...

Lampy - it's just a name!

*does the woo I still get nominations dance*

btw, ben is right... I've noticed that POTM is more based on popularity or "he met me in real life" and even "he's my boyfriend" instead of he posted good material... why on earth would I still get nominations in this then  tongue

And to think I used to believe it was just the nation elections that depended on popularity!
On an upside, I have 4 nominations this month, up by a whole 1.0 since last month! Admittedly they're nearly all from other Aussies, but it counts for something.

Yeah, POTM has become kind of worthless. But it sure is a good excuse to raise my postcount.

Also: Evan, I nominated you and I'm not going to change it, damn it!

Evan's got four nom's and for his post above he should win it.  Bless 'is little cotton socks.

Honestly, I think we should retire this and keep the PEELies.

Man, did I count right? 20 nominations? Wow, you guys all kick ass. Even if you didn't vote for me, I still saw some decent people getting recognition.

I admit I made a bad third choice with Speli(sorry man, but you didn't post much), but he was the first name that came to my head. However, my first two nominations were based on good posts this month. I think canned eggs and termos are both consistently worth reading.

Hey, I usually base my POTM nominees on posting quality... in my opinion. That's why they never win.

...although this month I did throw away a couple votes. Oh well. I'm sticking with evan.

And Ben probably hit the bullseye when POTM started to loose it's meaning, although my highly succesfull campaign for Wanker in February 2003 probably I have a stake in it too. No way I'm going to let the Aussies hog all the glory for this.

I'd say that was about average.  Although PEEL has several thousand members, probably only a hundred or so post with any degree of regularity during a given period.

Two pages is eighty posts, which ought to mean eighty PEELers making nominations.  And most of those make their nominations during the first couple of days, leaving Day 3 and Page 3 open for late-nominators and spam.

I may be quite new and I don't know most of you but as I hope that doesn't make my right to vote in this any less meaningful (or does it?  confused )

So I'll vote for...
