Seriously, I'm not joking. There is no etiquette. You can nominate yourself. Anybody who's telling you that you can't is fooling around with you.

I wasn't fooling around.  Seriously, you're going to be banned if you nominate yourself.

As far as what you said earlier about somebody who joined yesterday getting nominated, it's a long-running joke to make one of your three nominations the newest member of the board.

Also, people will nominate you when they like you enough. It's nothing against you if you don't get nominated. You just haven't been around for long. Stick around, post more in offtopic, and if people like what you contribute they'll nominate you. Or they won't and they'll nominate the same people over and over. POTM is a joke now anyway, it ceased to really have any point once we decided people could win more than once.

Edit: I feel like I've become the new i_c_weiner. hmpf

You are like the new i_c_weiner!  You're a very valuable poster.

JoshTheater gets my last nomination, unless he's already won before.

Exactly.

Seriously, FHM, calm down. No one's going to nominate you if you go around posting in the PotM thread complaining about people not nominating you or making joke nominations.

I nominated FHM. shifty

Why is that? I understand that having it end up as nothing more than a popularity contest is not ideal, but why wouldn't people be allowed to win more than once? Yes, PEEL gets new members frequently, but only so many are really contributing enough that being seriously nominated is an option. Eventually the "main posters" would all have won at some point, but then would you have to resort to nominating people who might not entirely deserve it? How is it a joke if there are people to nominate who have contributed especially well or amusingly in a certain month, whether they've won before or not?

Actually I wasn't saying that it's become a joke only because people are now allowed to win more than once, I was saying that it was around that time that it really became a joke. Once we got rid of the "only win once" rule, other rules started going out the window, and now the entire thing is hardly taken seriously at all. Before people could win more than once, it was still at a point where people were taking it seriously and there were actual rules and etiquette in place. Now it's just kind of a mess that people participate in but don't really give a shit who wins.

That was possibly the stupidest thing I've ever seen Books say. I might almost hazard a guess and say he's on drugs.

I voted for the German.  If he promises me more Bismarck quotes.

I guess he won't now, as I have all ready voted for him.

I am a terrible blackmailer.

I voted for one of my nominees, and the lack of previous victory swung it.

From what I have been hearing, here is a good scenario to describe PoTM:

Doubledeal: What, you didn't read the pamphlet?  POTM's a scam, kid.  It's rigged.  It's a secret so keep it under your head.  But the most popular poster always wins.
 
Bender: You mean I'm not a great poster?  I just won 'cause I'm popular?
 
Doubledeal: Bingo!

Bender: Woo-hoo! I'm popular!

Doubledeal: In fact, you're more than popular; You're pure lowest common denominator.
 
(Bender does a victory dance.)

Bender: Go Bender!  Go Bender!  Go Bender!

Well, the poll hasn't changed in the last couple of days and the leader has more than twice as many votes as the next most popular contender so I'm calling it, guys.
